    Don’t bully me for my stupidity. I had a wrench laying across both battery terminals for ~2 minutes before I noticed. The car was still hooked to the battery when it happened. Since putting the car back together I can’t get it to start. No power going to the fuel pump. I’ve replaced the main...

    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...
