allright, i have a 88 hf with a 89 dohc zc swap. i am only throwing a code 15-ignition output signal.
i have new plugs, plug wires, new dizzy, new coil and a new ignitor. i have also re-wired the white ignitor wire that goes from there to the ecu in pins B15 and B17. i have tryed 3 different ecus a edm pm7, pm6 and a pg7 and all throw the same code but the edm which naturally will throw the code 11 as well. i am getting fuel cause when i pull the plugs i can see that there is fuel and smell it in the cylenders. i am getting spark as well. my timing is right too.
those are the things i have fixed and nothing helped.
the problem is it will crank up and run for about 2-7min every once and a while then shut right off and throw the code. most of the other time it will just turn over but not crank at all.
now i was poking around and searching on other sites and what not and some people have said that the ignition kick-back system may be going out or the ignition switch?
where is the kick back system? and what is it so i can check it.

any help would be appreciated. this is the only thing keeping her from running and i am completly stumped.

you should recheck your wiring.. cuz if theres gas.. plus spark.. then its a simple mistake you did..


i would say check your distributor too.. but you say its new...

sorry to kinda jack... but its much more satisfaction to beat the crap out of it, then abandon it on the side of the road.

get it from an 89 integra d16a1.. but i doubt itll do anything..
recheck your igniter.. check your ecu fuse too, could be blown....
plus check your ground connections too.. my old g1 didnt start without having a lil wire connected to tha thermostat housing from tha chassis.. but who knows.. checkem out..



i had bought a "BRAND NEW" distributor from napa for bout 300$ for my g1.... and only lasted me 2 months.. so go figure.. distributors on those cars is basically like a tuneup.. and very expensive..

allright, get this. last night i went out and pulled the #1 cylinder plug and wire to check for spark. i went to crank it up and she fired right up. after that i shut it off and put the plug and wire bag in and she fired right up again but did shut off throwing the code. weird....

i will keep you posted on what happens. but ithink i am going to replace the plugs and wires. the wires are the ones that came with the engine still. and the plugs, i dropped one and broke the little peice off that you gap.

they say if you gap too much.. your car could sound and act like its runnin on 3 cylinders... but you missin that whole piece.. jajajaja..
