Asked by antstar Aug 20, 2013 at 08:31 PM about the 2000 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


No spark from the cap to plugs, check for power at ignition coil, if power is good then check for a coil trigger signal on the coil negative wire, if you have a trigger signal and no spark then coil is bad, if there is no trigger signal then either the pickup coil or module is bad, if that is the case then you might try pricing out a re manufactured distributor as it will be cheaper than just replacing the defective components.
