i am working on a 99 civic ex. just finished with overhaul and it refuses to start. Posting with pics. i have checked all fuses and relays in car and underhood. proper reading at coil and at distributor main connection. However it has no spark to 1-4. All engine grounds are clean and tight and injectors have power and signal. timing is correct. this is a salvage vehicle and pretty positive the kid is trying to screw me on the bill as he came by to grab some things but never retrieved anything, almost immediately afterwards started calling to come take his car to another mechanic. Please help as I have alot of money invovled at this piont,. ok so the pics, sorry they are blurry and lighting is horrible. This is what i have traced back to under dash on steering colom. The relay has a diode (i believe) between 85 n 86. 30 is a 12 guage red, 85 is orange and like a 24 guage wire along with 86 which is blue and 87 is not used and 87a is white 12 guage. the white wire (87a) is spliced in between the black with white strip wire and the orange (85) and blue (86) wire lead up to the somewhere behind the instrument cluster and the red wire (30) on looks to be the white with red stripe coming off the obd connector. appreciate yalls input as this has me stumped. Also changed the coil with brand new and distributor cap and rotor. thanks guys look forward to hearing what comes of this. This car is due back tomorrow and need conformation or what it actually is before i put my business on the line with an accusation. thank again. im kitchen by the way. lonely garage mechanic.
