Have Honda Questions? Ask a Honda Repair Expert.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
You did not mention the coil? I am assuming you did replace it with the distributor but I need to be sure. It's possible the new distributor igniter or coil is bad, not too likely but possible. Does your tester have a dwell or duty cycle setting?
OK, did you see if the rotor is spinning? what does the check engine light do? Do you have any fuel pressure? Sorry about all the questions.
OK, thanks. I have included a test for the coil and igniter. This will at least confirm the distributor components are working. Please check then let me know what you find.
Here is the ignition system diagram.
Are you on the black/yellow wire at the coil and igniter?
According to the test the coil is bad.
That's why I try to use a dwell meter. The Honda test is sometimes wrong. Can you take it in and have the ICM tested? most auto parts stores can test the ICM.
We are not in an office. The experts are all individuals working form home, their regular job etc. I will opt-out so another expert may help. Please wait for the next expert to respond.
Good morning I am master tech,
I have been reading all the info you and Honda-man have been talking about.
I want you to turn the key on and tell me if the check engine light comes on and stays on for a few seconds or goes out or stays on ?
ok thank you.
now you said you checked the timing belt and was not broken but did you actually like the crank and cam up to check the cam timing ?
ok , why did you pull the #3 wire was their a issue that made you do this ? just trying to see if their is a root issue that you were chasing.
ok thank you. so for some odd reason this back fed into the system which I personally have never seen in my tenure of 27 plus years of Honda and acura.
have you scanned this for any codes?
