see question above. Sounds like what mine was doing, replace the distributor cap & rotor. I'm not certain at all, but I've been doing some research. Does your PGM-FI indicator light up on your dash board after a few minutes of driving? If so, it would be related to the main relay. Apparently over time the main relays become un-soldered due to heat and stop responding properly.
I just went through that exact problem with my 88 prelude, it was the ignition cylinder.
bad ignition coil, bad plugs. bad plug wires, bad ignition control module........
I have a 1990 prelude that is in the dealership as I write this to have the speed sensor replaced. I have just been told that it is on the transmition. It is a sensor.
Have the ABS computer checked. I have a 94 prelude and had the same thing happen. Have the ABS computer checked. I have a 94 prelude and had the same thing happen.
The main relay is what sends power to the fuel pump and ignition.
If you are replacing a H22 engine with a later H22 variant it can be done but requires other items to be replaced. Research research research, check the car forums.
Make sure the bulbs are good.
If it still doesn't burn, check the ground of the light assy.
Either the coil is bad or the ignition control module is bad.I would think the coil is faulty.
The Prelude was created in 1799.
lightly pound under the ignition on the steering column and it will click. the key receiver sticks on these models. i have the same problem
It should be under the dash and takes 5 mins to swap out, matushita RZ-XXXX it is called the "main relay" which does both the fuel pump and ignition. Assuming this is fuel injected. Just replaced mine in my 86 Si and it fixed problems with the pump not coming on all the time when starting. $70 from the dealer.

A 1989 Prelude SI FI that will not start in the mornings until you keep trying could mean that your air filter needs to be replaced. A dirty air filter could result in starting problems.
