Question about 1995 Honda Civic del sol

1 Answer

Starter wiring Car will not start.Traced problem to a relay under the dash.Looks like a blue/black silver tracer wire has lost ground. There is a black/ red +12v going to the coil of this relay when key is turned but relay will not pick up. When I put a jumper to ground on the blue/black silver tracer wire it will start just fine. I believe I have lost a ground somewhere but do not have a wiring diagram to find out where this problem is. I don't want to ground this wire if the problem lies somewhere else. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a manual transmission and the clutch switch that prevents the car from starting unless clutch is depressed is good.

That wire probably goes to the transmission inter-lock. That prevents the car from starting if in any position other than Park.

Where are starter relays located ?


Probably should get a chiltons or hanynes manual, manual will tell you where and probably more for future issues.

Wont start sometimes


NO. Fuel pump relay controls the fuel delivery. You should NOT be hearing ANY clicking sounds when starting. If you have a manual tranny, you have a starting system that includes: a starter relay, a clutch safety switch, ignition switch, starter, battery.



On my \'91 Integra, I by-passed the normal starting system by running 2 separate 12-guage wires to the dash (thru the firewall, mounted along the firewall over across to the starter and to the under-hood fuse panel). I connected 1 wire to the under hood fuse panel (for power), and the other wire directly to the starter relay. Then, at the dash I connected both wires to a high-quality "momentary-on/off" toggle switch - this is my starter switch. I turn the ignition key to when the dash lights come on, then flick the switch, and BINGO the car always starts right up.



BUT, this is somewhat unsafe because it doesn\'t use the clutch safety switch - which is nothing more than a spring-loaded switch on the arm of the clutch pedal connected to the ground. IF you are using the standard starting system, you MUST engage the clutch for the starting system to make contact with the ground in order to engage the starter. So, check this switch first for a good connection to ground. It usually fails first before anything else. If it checks out, THEN check the starter relay, located waaaaaaay up underneath the dash, right in the middle. To get at the starter relay, you\'ll have to remove the glove box, and plastic & metal kick panels on the passenger side. The relay is located way up underneath the dash, next to the Blower housing. You\'ll need a long socket extension to reach it. Someone at Acura/Honda decided this was the best place for it. Boy would I like to whack him with a 2x4.



See this diagram for reference - the starter relay is #15.

Won't start


So it's a no crank condition? Do dash lights, gauges, and everything else work when the car won't crank over? If so, buy a cheap $5.00 testlight, and when the car won't crank, pull the small black wire off the starter solenoid. While someone holds the key in start (cranking) position and clutch pedal depressed, see if the black wire has power as it should. (Ground the testlight and just touch the wire's end terminal. If powered, the testlight will light up.) If power there, then the starter solenoid is failing. Toyota starters are very good units, but the solenoid's internal contacts get old and pitted.
If no power at the black wire, then the start circuit from ignition switch to clutch safety switch (on the clutch pedal) to starter relay to starter solenoid will have to be diagnosed. To double-check: take a single battery jumper cable and put it on the positive battery post connection. Put the other end of the jumper cable on the solenoid terminal where black wire was removed. Key can be off. Make sure car is in neutral, brake set. If starter now operates, solenoid is O.K., and it is a problem in the start circuit, -ignition switch, neutral start switch, or in the wiring.
Now find a grounding place for testlight under the dash. When car won't crank, check for power coming out of ignition switch on the black wire with white stripe. This is the start wire for the starter solenoid. Key must be in crank position. Wire shoud be powered-ignition switch is working. If no power, switch is failing. You can do the same for the clutch start switch-it's a simple switch, that when clutch is depressed switch is closed and passes power on from ignition switch to the starter relay (thus allowing power to the starter solenoid). Black wire, red stripe-this is wire from clutch switch to starter relay. When key is in crank, clutch depressed, this wire should be hot.
With me so far? Still haven't found a problem, or any loose connections? Next and last is the starter relay. It is located under dash, close to gas pedal, but under the center console, just forward and left of gear shifter. It can be tested and the wiring diagnosed there, but relays are cheap, so just swap in another and see if that helps.
If you have tried everything, and still no help, you could try a new wire from the relay to the starter solenoid. This is that black wire we started with. Older toyotas sometimes have a problem with degraded wiring not passing enough current to operate the starter

I have a 1995 Chevy S 10 and the horn does not work. I think my problem is under the dash. Are there any switches,relays, or breakers I need to be looking\r\nfor? I have traced from horn to fuse panel and...


The horn relay is in the fuse/relay box under the hood. so the fuse is HOT on both sides? you should hear the horn relay click when pressing on the horn switch. there may be other relays in that fuse box to swap with and see if the horns work, if the relay clicks, its "usually" good, but the contacts may be bad. if the relay clicks, check for power at the horn. DARK GREEN wire, if it has power , then check the black wire, thats the ground. If it has power and ground, but does not work, the horn is bad.

This sounds like a starter disable feature of a car alarm. Somewhere under the dash you are going to find a box with the start wires running to it. The start wire is black with a white stripe and is thick, about a 12 gauge wire. It will come from the ignition switch and run into a relay or box. It could be installed anywhere as it is aftermarket. Once you find it, you can reconnect both ends of the starter wire and you can start it with the key. I would disconnect the power to the alarm or your lights are going to flash at random. The factory alarm (just in case it is the issue, but that isn't likely) is located behind the radio and ashtray.

I puled off my old alternator and forgot to put


So, you have an integral regulator on your alternator.... so you have to connect the output of the regulator to your battery. You also have to connect between the regulator and the alternator. Hmmmmm how to describe....
using your descriptions of wires and prongs.....
Connect Wire Color to Prong

Yellow (w/wht dot) A+
White (w/blk tracer) STA
Black (w/orange tracer) Bat (alt output)
Ground wire Grd
Orange (w/Lt.Blue) F (field)
If battery was connected, the Black with orange tracer wire would have +12 Volts on it at all times

Disabling PassTime device on 03 Ford F150


Find the passtime device , it's usually under the dash near the ignition switch. You can trace it by following the wire from the remote eye. There are 5 wires with a plug connector plugged into the device. Leave the red, pink and black wires alone. The blue wire comes from your ignition switch and goes to a relay switch inside the device. The purple wire comes from that switch to your starter.
Leave them cut from the device, but solder, (or connect in some manner) them together so that the passtime device is bypassed. Then your starter will get power when you turn the key. That's all there is to it.
the passtime device will still appear to be functioning. It will beep and take codes from the remote, but regardless of whether it is timed out or not your starter will still get power.

**IMPORTANT NOTICE**

It should be noted that the passtime system is property of the dealership and removal of this device may violate your contract with the dealership and in some states is a punishable offense.

Won t start after sitting for two weeks


check the starter, starter motor and the starter are one unit. just under nearth the battery. make sure the red battery wire is tight. and the black ground is tight to the chassis.
if you don't hear any clicking sound, the starter is bad, need replacement.
if you hear clicking sound then look for the starter module. mounted on the side of the distributor.
these are two most problem area.
if it still don't start, go to zcar.com or 300xcar.com
they should able to give you most place to look.

good luck
