Because I bought an 89 accord that the cord is under the hood and it is not plugged into the block. I am having trouble finding it though because I have a feeling I may have to remove the distributor cap to see where the plug goes and install it. I also called the Honda dealer in my area and they said that it is either behind the distributor cap or by the oil filter.
