Question From mbevanz on 93 honda civic 1.6 ignition problem.

I have no spark and have eliminated everything to the igniter and the ECU. I have no power to the yellow and green wire at distributor plug at start-up. How can I test igniter and ECU?

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

Did you make sure that the distributor rotor spins when you crank the engine?

Which wires? There is no yellow and green wires. There is blue with a yellow tracer wire and a blue with a green tracer wire. Is that what you mean?

Response From mbevanz

Yes, it does.

Response From mbevanz

In the 7 wire connector at the distributor there is a yellow with green stripe.

Response From Discretesignals

check for stored ECU codes as stated above. The yellow/green wire is the circuit that is used by the ECU to control the ignition timing to the ignitor. The signal it produces can't be checked with a volt meter and requires an oscilloscope.

If the signal on the circuit is missing, that could mean the ECU isn't getting the information from the sensors in the distributor, the ECU isn't powered up, the ECU or has an internal problem.

Checking for codes would tell you have the ECU is powered up and able to run diagnostics.

Response From Discretesignals

Make sure the computer ground by the thermostat housing is clean and tight.

Response From Discretesignals

Did you see if there were any codes in the ECU? There should be a blue connector underneath the dash by the glove box that you jumper. The check engine light will flash any stored codes in a single or two digit format after the connector is jumpered and the ignition is turned on.

Question From Maurer78 on 1998 honda crv 2.0 no spark

My 1998 honda crv is getting no spark to the distributor at all would run fine all day but once it sat all night would take a while to start back again and now does not start at all
I have replaced the following parts

Brand new distributor
Main relay
Under dash fuse box
Under hood fuse box
Ingition switch
Ecu
Not sure what else to do really need some help on this

Response From Discretesignals

Also if there are any trouble codes stored in the engine controller, write them down.

Response From Maurer78

P1298 /p1297

Only thing im not getting is spark replaced everything

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

While your checking for those thing, remove the distributor cap and crank the engine. Maybe sure the distributor's rotor spins.

You don't know that because you didn't check.

Response From Hammer Time

You need to do some more test here................


All "crank, no start" conditions are approached in the same way. Every engine requires certain functions to be able to run. Some of these functions rely on specific components to work and some components are part of more than one function so it is important to see the whole picture to be able to conclude anything about what may have failed. Also, these functions can ONLY be tested during the failure. Any other time and they will simply test good because the problem isn't present at the moment.
If you approach this in any other way, you are merely guessing and that only serves to replace unnecessary parts and wastes money.



Every engine requires spark, fuel and compression to run. That's what we have to look for.

These are the basics that need to be tested and will give us the info required to isolate a cause.

1) Test for spark at the plug end of the wire using a spark tester. If none found, check for power supply on the + terminal of the coil with the key on.


2) Test for injector pulse using a small bulb called a noid light. If none found, check for power supply at one side of the injector with the key on.


3) Use a fuel pressure gauge to test for correct fuel pressure, also noticing if the pressure holds when key is shut off.

4) If all of these things check good, then you would need to do a complete compression test.

Once you have determined which of these functions has dropped out,
you will know which system is having the problem.

1996 Honda Accord Shutting off Intermittently

Question From lmt1979 on 1996 Honda Accord Shutting off Intermittently

Hi I have a 1996 Honda Accord 4 cylinder that is intermittently shutting off. The vehicle will shut off while driving or while idling and after it does this it is difficult to start back but will start. I have had the vtec solenoid, the valve cover gasket, the spark plugs, wires and distributor rotor/cap replaced as well.

I appreciate any help or advice. THANKS

EDIT: May 16 2013, Replaced the Main Relay/Fuel Pump Relay, still having stalling. I do notice that the stalling is much more frequent when the car has been running a while. I was able (when driving/testing) to let the vehicle sit for 10 or so minutes and it would start back up immediately, but if I tried as soon as it stalled I would have difficulty. The Main Relay and casing is getting very hot to the touch after driving for about an hour or so.

EDIT: May 31 2013, Replaced the Ignition Switch this morning hoping that might be the problem as it looks like one of the only things I can still do on my own. I am still getting stalling or the engine/tachometer dropping and immediately restarting. I got it home, let it sit for 5 or so minutes and it cranked right up.


here are my specs EDIT: (No check engine light is on)

1996
Honda
Accord
4 cylinder 2.2 liter
175k miles


Here are a couple of videos I took today (June 3) one is a surge while driving at a highway speed (80mph) on even/level terrain and constant speed. The second one is after driving (you can see the Odometer differences) about 95 miles testing it.




Response From Discretesignals

Check engine light on?

Response From lmt1979

No check engine light, unfortunately.

Response From Discretesignals

When it doesn't want to start does the check engine light bulb check with the ignition on?

Honda's were kind of known for no starts and stalling being caused by faulty main relays under the dash.

Check out this vid:


That is one place to start.

Response From lmt1979

Ok, watched the video you linked to and removed the main relay, inspected it, cleaned it and according to the video(s) I watched I did not see any bad solders. I have more of a stalling problem than a starting problem, would it be worth buying a new or refurb/used main relay anyway? Could these symptoms be a combination fuel pump/filter and relay. I'm having trouble replicating the problem which is good I guess. I would still like to get my reliability back.

Thanks again for your help

The main relay is a common problem on Honda. It may not be the relay causing your problem. When it comes to intermittent stalling problems, those can be hard to diagnose without proper equipment. You on the other hand may be able to figure it out IF the engine doesn't restart long enough for you to connect equipment up to catch what is missing.

If it doesn't restart things to check would be:

(1) fuel pressure
(2) injector pulse
(3) ignition (spark)

One of more of those things is going to be missing when it doesn't want to start. Once you determine what is missing, that will give you direction for further diagnosis.

If it does restart after stall or no restart happens to short for you to catch, that is when you have to whip out the expensive tools such as a lab scope. Most people don't have one laying around or understand how to interpret their wave forms, so the guessing game (swaptronics) is the only resort. That can get expensive.

Ok the Main Relay Part Number RZ 0088 Mitsuba has been replaced with a brand new in box part. updated original post to reflect this. Still stalling after use.

Response From lmt1979

How would I go about checking these three things you mentioned? And it will restart after sitting for a few minutes or so. Is it possible the main relay I bought was bad out of the box?

1) fuel pressure
(2) injector pulse
(3) ignition (spark)

Thanks again for your help.

Response From Discretesignals

1) is a little hard to check because you need a fuel pressure gauge and adapters so you can plumb it into the fuel rail.

2) can be checked by using a NOID light or lab scope. Most autoparts stores sell NOID lights.

3) is checked with a spark tester. The adjustable spark tester is the best one to use. Spark should be able to jump a 3/4 inch gap.
