I have a 93 honda prelude vtec 2.2l drove and parked, will not start, just cranks over. replaced coil, starter, main relay switch, ignitor, plugs, getting fuel but will not start


Do you have fuel pressure? Is 12 volts available to the injectors with the key turned to run (use a 12 volt test light to check this). Have you checked the combination relay located behind the glove box on most Honda models??

No spark On 1993 Honda prelude


Check the coil pack and then if that is not the case, check the ignition module and last check the crank sensor

Use the be able to start with giving it gas now I cam't start it at all it wont crank over.


On any no start situation, you have to figure out if you are dealing with a fuel problem or spark problem.
Can you start it by spraying carb cleaner into the intake hose ?
Have you checked the fuel pressure with a gauge ?

My 93 prelude won't start i change the fuel pump i check my fuses so what now i need help


You will have to see if your getting spark and fuel. If your getting both it should be starting either timing or injector pulse isn't working maybe. If your not getting spark, you will need to check your ignition system. If your still not getting fuel then you have a relay or maybe a computer problem. This isn't exact but a short list of what to check so you can reply with more information.

My prelude was good no problems one night as i parked the car i left inside light on by mistske all night by morning when i got in car it started not right away but it started driving through out the day i...


Hi maryann.

The first thing to check is the battery itself. You should try jump starting the car or replacing the battery with a fully charged one. If that does not work, then you check ignition by verifying that the dash is turning on and that there is voltage to coil; you check if starter motor is running; check sparks, fuel pressure and power to injectors. If all that is OK there is even more testing to be done.

Start by replacing the battery, or jump starting by connecting battery terminals to a different car's battery.If it still does not start, check if starter motor is running. If it runs, check if there is spark by disconnecting spark plug wire and putting the connector near to engine block.

Find someone local to help you doing all that.

Good luck.

Ginko.

WHEN I TURN THE IGNITION I CAN HEAR A CLICK SOUND BUT NOTHING ELSE AS IF ITS TRYING TO SEND POWER TO THE SPARK PLUGS OR WTHVER EVERY THING WORKS JUST WONT ATTEMPT TO TURN OVER


if it clicks when you try to start it might be the battery.
Turn on the lights and try to start.. and see if they dim out,
if so replace or charge the battery KC

Wont start


The problem is likely in the injection module which is located in the dash right behind the flip down tray to the right of the flip down fuse door the the left of the steering wheal.To test simply rapidly slap the fuse/vanity flip down door area while starting the car and it will start.I have had 5 preludes and all have the same problem a replacement is 150 or you can sotter all the connections on the board inside the fuel injection module.This will fix the problem as the original connections develop miniscule cracksAll preludes have this problem in really hot or cold weather
