98 prelude sh. my issue is with the green connector inside the door jam when you open either the driver door or passenger. There is a rubber protectant thing that covers all these wires. My passenger side window doesn't work, my drivers speaker and my power side mirrors don't work. The shop says that the connector is bad and needs to be replaced on the drivers side but the passengers is ok it's way out too so I should replace both. He told me it's going to be hard to get unless I get it from Honda if they even still sell it. I found a donor car but it's an automatic base prelude, will the connector still work for an sh model?

Its a common issue, had you done some reasearch on the subject you would have discovered not only that but the fact that they are not available from honda.

A used harness is your best bet. Or just fix the broken wire.

The difference in the harness from an automatic and sh is your current door lights are not in an automatic, so the wires are not in that donor harness

I didn't realize this was common issue. My car has the same issue: my driver's side speaker is out and the door locks keep shorting out.

The wiring harness seems to be a bit poorly designed in these cars. I noticed that some of the connectors under the dash have the wires pulled pretty tight for factory fitment.

If you have 6" door speakers installed in the most professional ghetto manner then it could be grounding on the door. My base had that issue. It was done before I got it. If you can smack the door and it works that could be the issue.
