ignition

  1. 4th Gen
    My key sometimes gets stuck in the ignition and I have to remove one of the battery connections to be able to get it out. I have 4th gen from 1995 does anyone else have this problem and if so how do I fix it? Is it something with the anti-theft or do I need to get my ignition and key redone?
  2. 5th Gen
    Hey guys, yet another Honda virgin weaseling himself onto the site, however; I don't have basic ass questions to ask so please don't crucify me <3. Also, I have tried doing some research on these issues, but couldn't find a quite matching set of issues to go off of, so I figured why not get some...

    Prelude needs jump to start, but it's not the battery I've got a 1990 Prelude Si (with an S engine that was put in about a year ago). About one out of every three times, the car wont' start—when I turn the ignition, the engine slowly turns over but doesn't catch. After a few seconds the thing...
  4. 5th Gen
    97 5th gen, H22A4, AT. Crank no start. I bought this car as a project for really cheap, I've never actually had it start, but all indications are that it ran fine and just shut off one day and wouldn't start again. From what I can tell I have no spark. I've replaced plugs and wires with NGK...

    I have been a Prelude enthusiast for some time, my first being a 86 that was destroyed by someone blowing through a stoplight.. but I have a problem with my 92 Prelude that I just got back after it was stolen. They stole the stereo, amp and sub.. but otherwise it doesn't appear to have been...
  6. 3rd Gen
    So I'm very close to breaking in my engine, but I'm stuck because I can't get to 15 BTDC on the flywheel. I can just get past the white TDC mark, maybe plus 5? I'm using a B18A1 intake camshaft, would this have anything to do with it? I'm also using a Acura Vigor TB (which isn't actually...

    Hey everyone, looks like my 95 si crapped out on me again lol. While I was driving my ABS and Parking Brake light came on...so I pulled over and turned the car off to see if it needed a reset. As soon as the motor shut off the starter started cranking non-stop without the key. It just kept...
  8. 3rd Gen
    Recently my 91 prelude has been having a strange issue starting. Most of the time I can start just fine, but once in a while when I turn to the 'start' position, nothing happens. The starter doesn't turn or click, the dash lights don't dim down. Most of the time I can turn the key back and forth...
  9. 3rd Gen

  10. 3rd Gen
    i was looking at the msd sci box, but at $210 for the box and $50 for the blaster ss coil, i dont know if i can justify spending ~$260 for a "smoother" powerband. im basically looking for the most bang for the buck ignition system, thats when i gazed upon this box...
