How come your car turns of when you let go of the accelerator and hit the brakes it turns back on right away?

You need to go through a process of elimination. Obviously the car starts. When out of gear and idling does it keep running with your foot off the gas? If it stalls you have a fuel supply problem. If you determine that you don't have a fuel supply problem and hitting the brakes is somehow turning the ignition on and off you probably have either a loose ignition wire connection that the brake assembly and wiring is somehow shorting out in conjuction with the accelerator linkage. These kind of wiring issues can be frustrating and difficult to pinpoint. There's no real easy workaround to this. You have to spend the time examing the wiring for loose connections or bare spots in the wires that can create shorts.

If your 2000 Honda Prelude turns over but does not have fire when you try to start it what could be the problem?

Check fuel and fire. Pull a plug and smell for raw fuel, and check the plug and see if there is fire to the plug. If I checked the plugs and it is not getting fire or fuel at all what could cause that problem.
