the ticking noise is likely the fuel injectors, which you probably didn't notice before because you weren't looking for anything wrong.

if ticking noise is in engine, u most likely have a worn hydraulic lifter. check oil for correct volume and viscocity

follow the negative battery cable to the frame that is usually the main ground but there are many body tied ground cables throughout the car

Your Honda Prelude might not start because of a dead battery or an empty gas tank. It may also not start due to a damaged starter or a battery that is disconnected.


Anyplace that sells batteries can tell you the correct size battery to install.

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.

A few causes that will make the Battery Light come on are: 1. Faulty Battery 2. Loose Battery Connection 3. Battery is not Charging, ie. Faulty Alternator

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 old battery should have the type written on the label under all the crud that has built up over the years.

Try disconnecting the negative battery wire, leave it off for ~5 minutes, then reconnect. Start the engine. The radio should read "CODE". Using the station preset buttons (1 through 6) enter your code. Then turn the radio on. Works for my '93 Prelude; hope this helps you!

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.

could be something wrong with the distributor. This happened to me a few months ago. My 2001 Honda prelude was only running off the battery for a day or so and I took it in to get the alternator replaced. They did that, but it still was only running off of the battery and my gauges weren't working. I took it back and they replaced the distributor and everything worked again. Or the alternator could be loosely connected. Voltage regulater ng or battery ng Voltage regulater ng or battery ng this is a guessing game with electrical ,i assume you've taken your alternator to get checked ,you could have a loose electrical wire or a blowen fuse also check your battery cables they may need cleaning , good luck.

There is a Positive (HOT) & Negative (Ground) battery cable. There are also lots of other HOT wires that are carrying current throughout the vehicle. What exactly are you referring too? hundereds of wires get a book at advance or napa for your car

use a code reader , or take off the negative battery cable off for a few seconds & don't for get to have the radio theft code handy.. after taking off the cable hondas theft system will disable the radio .

If it still doesn't burn, check the ground of the light assy.

The Prelude was created in 1799.

just follow the positive line coming from the battery. The first component it meets should be the voltage regulator.
