Have a Honda Question? Ask a Honda Repair Expert.
Does the check engine light come on when you turn the key on?Do you have a test light?
Also, take the distributor cap off and make sure the rotor turns while you are cranking the engine.
Please let me know.
You're very welcome!!
How have you tested for spark?
Check the blue wire and the yellow/black stripped wire at the coil for power with the key on and let me know.
Did the other wire have power?
Ok, the wiring diagram is showing the blue wire going into the fuse box under the dash. So, check all the fuses for power with the key on. It's not telling me which fuse powers it up or even if it should have power. The ignition module does show that its what fires the coil, but simply no good info on that blue wire.
Is the ignition coil part of the distributor on this or external?
I am going to open this back up for the other experts. I suspect the coil is the problem but my service info isn't giving me any decent testing for the wiring to the coil.
Please don't reply to me or it will lock it to me. I want you to be able to get some help with this, so please, don't reply.
Hello welcome to just answer I am master tech .
I will be able to assist you .
you mentioned the rotor does not turn right ?
can you tell me more about this.
also what service work has been done and do you have a compression gauge
is the rotor aligned with the # ***** cylinder ?
is the check engine light on or cycles off after a few seconds
ok the engine will not turn over at all when you turn the key to the start position ?
does the check engine light stay on or goes out ?
ok it should go out
ok cranking does nothing for the check engine light.
turn the key on and does it go out or stay on.
Don't crank the engine
Ok let me grab some info
yes I did see the msg about the check engine light.
if the system is not grounding or something it open their will be no power from the pcm.
on the intake manifold their is a ground G101 see if it's attached if it is then remove it and clean the tab and the surface on the intake
sorry i got busy at work.
let me look over some things
please forgive me I thought I posted the info.
work was insane today.
the jumper box is a dealer tool
basically your back probing the pcm connectors.
the ecu is under the glove box on the floor you will need to remove the steel cover to gain access.
its pretty straight forward flow chart.
its wire checking and ohm readings to see if their is a open in the harness or a failed ecu or component in the system
you will need a volt ohm meter to do this work
