Re: how to turn check engine light off!?!? (93LUDEH22SWP)
Had it scanned? Using what method, and who? (a mechanic, a dealership, electronics diagnostic shop etc.?) I thought only obd2 cars needed a scanner?!
If your check engine light is on, than you have a CEL code being listed and stored in your on-board memory.
NOTE: ONLY read further if you need to know how to check a CEL CODE OBD1 (prelude specific)
Check the cel in your OBD1 prelude by jumpering the little BLUE TWO PIN CONNECTOR BEHIND YOUR CENTER DASH. ITS RIGHT TO THE RIGHT OF YOUR GAS PEDAL behind the plastic molding. If you slide your hand in behind the molding you can feel around for wires that don't connect into anything (BE GENTLE, like your.....oh lets say (you know what I'd like to say but...) petting a "CAT". Hopefully you'll feel your way to the one I very well described above, pull it out, stick an unraveled paper clip in one end, than into the other to create a jumper (connect the two). Than turn your ignition to "ON" (accessories) (Don't Crank it, just fire up electronics), and watch your check engine light. It will flash. You count the number of Long flashes, and the number of short flashes. Long flashes equal 10, short equal 1. The codes will repeat, and if you see a long pause, and than a different combination of flashes you have multiple error codes. Just watch for 10 minutes or so. Count long, count short. Add your 10's together, add your 1's together, than combine your 10's and 1's.
Its like reading Binary Number systems.
Ie. 5 long flashes, 3 short flashes = 53. (than you refer to a workshop manual or a Haynes which is what I highly suggest you have or please don't touch your car anymore.
Find what error code you have and report to us! (I Love OBD1 cars)
