87' Honda prelude si will start and then cut off. All the lights on the dash board comes on, then cut off.


sounds like the problem could be in the fuel pump first start out buy removing the back seet cushion and turn the key to the on position there is a fuel pump assess door under the back seat and with the key on you will be able to hear if the pump is staying on with the key on get back to me after you have preformed this step and well go from there

You need to check the tcm for codes too. The s3 light is like the check engine light for the tcm. The VSS code might be your problem.

1992 prelude si - battery/alternator prob?


if you can charge the battery and drive it for a while then sounds like the altenator has failed and is not re-charging the battery, good way to test is to charge the battery, start the car and turn the light on, if everything is dimm or the motor dies there is little to no charge voltage, and will require altenator work

95 prelude -- dash lights for speedometer and tach are out


Just fixed this myself. I found a used USDM meter/gauge out of a 1995 SI on EBAY for $200. However, I have a VTEC engine that redlines at 7500 RPM and the SI's redlines at 6500 RPM. Easy to fix by swapping the face plates inside of the meter/gauge. If your issue is the bulbs they cost a lot... around $250 each. But if your lights went out simultaneously then the bulbs are not the issue... it's the power supply where the bulbs plug into and that's located behind the drivers dash speaker (very easy to remove with only two screws holding it in). This part is more expensive at around $350, but cheaper than buying two bulbs. Scroll through every page of honda prelude listings on EBAY and you may just get lucky like I did. Hope this helps.
