This is an over-ride convenience feature...that allows you to place the transmission in neutral to roll the car when the engine is off...useful for short moves inside a garage...use the regular key or any key-shaped object....

Will a 1993 prelude automatic transmission fit my 1992 honda accord

If it's the S model, it *should* as it has a F22 motor in it.. the Si and SE has a H23 motor, and the VTEC has a H22 motor. I have heard of people using the F22 transmission on a Prelude motor for longer gearing at highway speeds (per, but I haven't tried the combination myself

My 01 honda prelude wont start. It will not crank everything is on there is no dimming, I just need to know what the problem is? Its an automatic

Honda has a lot of problems with main relays. Provided you have good voltage in the battery you can try to see if it will start in neutral, if it does the saftey switch could be defective. Another possibilty is the starter. If you can hold the key in the crank position while someone taps on the starter it may start. If it does then replace the starter.

Where is the starter located?

Honda Accord/Prelude 1984-1995 Repair Guide

Accords and Preludes may be fitted with either a direct-drive starter or a gear reduction starter. The differences are internal and depend on the manufacturer of the starter.

The two units are similar in operation and service. Both starters are 4-pole, series wound, DC units to which an outboard solenoid is mounted. When the ignition switch is turned to the START position, the solenoid armature is drawn in, engaging the starter pinion with the engine flywheel. When the starter pinion and flywheel are fully engaged, the solenoid armature closes the main contacts for the starter, causing the starter to crank the engine

When the engine starts, the increased speed of the flywheel causes the gear to overrun the starter clutch and rotor. The gear continues in full mesh until the ignition is released from the START to the ON position, interrupting the starter current. A spring then returns the gear to its neutral position.

  1. Disconnect both battery terminals, negative first.
  2. Disconnect the large cable from the starter motor; label and disconnect the wiring to the starter solenoid. Certain engine/transmission combinations have an engine harness secured in a clip on the starter or transaxle. Remove the harness from the clip and position it out of the way.
Fig. 1: Gear reduction starter used on some Honda models

Fig. 2: Direct-drive starter used on some Honda models
  1. Remove the starter motor by loosening the attaching bolts.
To install:
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedures. Tighten the starter-to-engine bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm) on the Accord V-6 and 32 ft. lbs. (45 Nm) on other models.
  2. Connect the wiring to the starter securely.
  3. Connect the battery cables, positive cable first.
  1. Remove the starter from the vehicle.
  2. Remove the screws securing the solenoid to the starter housing.
  3. Pull out the solenoid. On the Nippodenso type, there is a spring on the shaft and a steel ball at the end of the shaft, be sure not to lose them. On the Mitsuba type, move the solenoid away from the plane of the armature to disengage it from the solenoid lever.
To install:
  1. Install the solenoid with a new gasket (if equipped). On the Mitsuba type, make certain the lever is correctly installed to, and engaged with, the lever. On the Nippodenso unit, make certain the steel ball and spring are correctly placed. All the sliding surfaces of the solenoid should be lightly greased before installation.
  2. Tighten the retaining screws until snug.
  3. Install the starter.
Good luck (remember rated and comment this post).

Won't re-start after driving.

sounds like your park/neutral safety switch is faulty
next time it does this shift the transmission into neutral and it should start up
this could also be the reason your car wont start in your other post
