  1. Slow crank on 5th gen Prelude 98

    5th Gen
    I found the starter cranks slower and slower in recent few weeks, so this morning I checked and cleaned the battery connections. Then I started the car (with very slow crank) and let it run for about 10 minutes to charge the battery. When I tried to start the engine again the starter cranked for...

    Hello. I want to relocate the battery to the boot for some bay clearance. Does anyone have some criteria for wire thickness for the positive, the fuse needed and the good UK link? Anyone here done it before? Thanks PreludeJobby
  3. 91 Winter Update

    3rd Gen
    The 91 is still going strong, only about 200 miles over the last couple winter months as she needs some TLC before going back into daily service in this spring again. What I've done: Replaced the clutch master cylinder (again) and hopefully this one isn't a dud (last one went about 10k miles...

    Hi Luders, I'm back in the game. Just picked up a clean 1989 Si, I had a 90 S a few years back until the timing belt slipped. [/URL][/IMG] The issues i'm having is bad battery drain. If i let the car sit over night it won't have any juice left in the morning. I did some digging and found...

  9. Battery Woes

    5th Gen
    Hey Everybody, So a few weeks ago I was getting ready to head home from school and the Prelude wouldn't start. It tried to turn over for about half a second then a bunch of relays would click and the dash lights would flash and then everything would go dead. So I thought I had a dead battery...
  10. Alternator woes

    5th Gen
    Radio started turning off a few times randomly yesterday while driving. Today my car tried to start but couldn't quite manage. Battery is only a 1.5 yrs old. I tested the alternator at Autozone - it's good. While uninstalling the alternator, the wiring to the alternator was corroded to shit...

    5th Gen
    Hi Everyone - So for those that didn't follow my fiasco with my vtec solenoid, let me go ahead and warn that my knowledge of cars is somewhere in the range of "pitiful". That being said, I have learned a hell of a lot in the last month of working on my '97 - poor thing is finally starting to...
  13. Battery drain with key off.

    3rd Gen
    I just got my Prelude in running order the other day but it still has a minor issue with a perisitic battery drain is what has been described to me. With the ignition off and key out the fuse box under the hood pulls a fraction of a volt of power that over night kills the battery. It seems...
