Starter issues


Asked by May 07, 2016 at 03:20 PM about the 1991 Honda Civic DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a no start no crank on a 91 honda civic 1.6
with a 5 spd manual. I traced what i think is the
issue to a loose ground off the wiring harness. But
cannot find where to hook the ground to properly.
Im not a honda guy, the car belongs to a friend who
uses it as her daily driver

1 Answer


Try running a ground off the negative battery post , with a low amp fuse, to see if it will start. If so google the wiring schematics off of google to fix
