It does not have one. You look at the LED on the ECM and count number of blinks. Mine would not start. The Main Relay was the problem

Set timing on a 1992 honda prelude, 2.3 engine, I REPLACED THE DISTRIBUTER AND NOW ITS COMPLETELY OUT OF TIME, detailed instructions please


  1. Locate the service check connector and, if applicable, remove the cap. On 1988-91 Preludes, the cap is yellow and the connector is located next to the vacuum control box in the engine compartment. On 1992-95 Preludes, the service connector is located under the middle of the dash. On 1990-93 Accords, the connector is blue and is located behind the right front kick panel, under the dashboard. On 1994-95 Accords, the service connector is located behind the glove box. Use a jumper wire to connect the two terminals of the service connector.
  1. Following the manufacturers instructions, connect a timing light to the engine. The positive and negative leads connect to their corresponding battery terminals and the spark plug lead to No. 1 spark plug wire.
  2. Make sure that all wires are clear of the cooling fan and hot exhaust manifolds.
  3. Set the parking brake and block the front wheels. Start the engine. Check that the idle speed is set to specifications.
  4. Point the timing light at the timing marks. On all models except 1994-95 Accords, the marks are on the flywheel. On the 1994-95 Accords, the timing marks are on the crankshaft pulley. When the engine is idling, the red mark must align with the pointer. Some timing marks are indicated by 3 lines; the center one must be aligned with the pointer.

  1. If necessary to adjust the timing, loosen the distributor hold-down bolt(s) and/or nut and slowly rotate the distributor in the required direction while observing the timing marks.
  2. To complete the adjustment operation, tighten the hold-down bolt, taking care not to disturb the adjustment.
  3. Switch the engine OFF . Reinstall the rubber plug in the timing window and remove the timing light. Remove the jumper wire.

1988 honda prelude windows and sunroof won't work


There is a relay, and it should be in the fuse box. If it's not there, you may have a Constant Control Relay Module (CCRM). It's a big black and silver box around the radiator. The relay could be housed here. If so, you'll have to replace the entire box as these relays are not serviceable.

Trying to locate my fuel pump cut-off relay


On a 90 accord its located under the dash near the fuse box. I am not 100% sure that the prelude is the same. On the accord it has 8 terminals and it was kinda difficult to get to. Honda is pretty good at placing things on different makes in the same location.

1988 honda prelude S


No quick fixes, once it slip the transmission is pretty well done due to damage to the clutch packs, pull the pan and see how much debris is in there, if it is allot then an overhaul is needed, I would suggest that all the shift solenoids be replaced during the fix, also make sure th connector to the tran is in good condition, no loose pins or damaged connector locks.
