Default EK22 Wiring / Startup Problems PLEASE HELP!!!

Alright I'm just <U>TOTALLY </U>frustrated with the wiring on my civic...

I checked everything over time and time again and have now noticed theres 6 wires that im not 100% posative of where they should go to, if theyre used at all.

1-IGP1 (A25) & IGP2 (B1) Yellow/Black Wires
2-BLUE wire from Dizzy -- Tach out OR Power in????
3-PGM-FI/#5 Pin on connector C101 (Ignition harness conn to Engine main conn.) Yellow/Black wire
4-Ignition/#8 Pin on connector C101- Blue wire
5-Fuse #15/#1 Pin on connector C101- Black/Yellow
6-Black/Yellow and Yellow/Black wires coming off "FI" Plug next to C101 Plug. Plug has LOTS of Black/Yel & Yel/Black wires

If any of this is confusing please let me know because I need all the help I can get. I've got Helms, but its not real clear how to match these wires up. So PLEASE HELP!!! Id prefer to have the wire colors for me to match up since ive got all the rest connected up and would be painstaking to trace each wire around.

Oh yeah, if this isnt in the right forum, please tell to post it wherever I should.

What do the wires go to. Yel/blk or blk/yel are sensor voltage (A25 or B1)

Those two wires connect. that is for your tach (if have one, you do not need them to run the car)

Look at answer one. how is your resistor box wired? trce the wires and see where they go, then post it. I will tell you what to do.

(1) is from the ECU. Its sapposed to power the ECU i think, but in the helms it shows it connecting up somehow to the Fuel Injection Wire - WTF?

All C101's trail back to the ignition

no, the wire guage is just as thick as the rest.

some of the C101 wires are ignition and the others are dash, which im guessing is guages stuff

thanks for the quick replies... i want my hatchie to start so bad. i dont even care if i wake up the neighbors running open header now!

well, i figured out my battery was bad that i was using to start the car up with, so i went with the Optima yellow for 120$. i hate that gay yellow color so ill have to find a way to fix that, but im pretty much broke now and am hoping my ecu isnt fried but im tired and gotta go to bed for work tomorrow.

ill be getting lots of detailed pics of the wiring, which i think is my paramount problem.

IVE FINALLY FIGURED OUT MY PROBLEM!!!

well, ive got fuel working just fine (cuz i smelled it pretty badly when i had a sparkplug/wire out) and that'll all good, but what i've got a problem with is there's NO SPARK!

i tested to see if the dizzy is getting anything sent to it and it is getting power, but when i tested to see if my spark plug sparked outside of the car (while keeping it grounded - it didnt spark at all.

what wire(s) could possibly be out of place in my situation here?????

well u have to take it apart to test it..

man.. no spark can be a number of things...

if u have a volt/ohm meter, u can check to see if its getting enough power or not.. umm..do u have a chiltons manual/(haynes prolly work too)? they give pretty good directions on how to test ur distributor and everything inside it.
