Engine died


Asked by Jun 30, 2016 at 12:54 PM about the 1993 Honda Prelude 2 Dr VTEC Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Started my car this morning and it ran for
about 3 seconds then shut off instantly
After about 5 tries it's now completely off.
Gas is full, starter motor is replaced, new
spark plugs, bypassed the AC and
serviced a week ago. What is happening?

U first need to identify the problem. Is car turning over or completely dead. If it is dead, it's related to weak battery, dirty or corroded battery cables, bad starter or ignition switch but nothing to do with gas, spark plugs


Neighbor tried it out and said it kicks over and then dies out after 2sec and reckons it might be the main relay
