The 1992 Honda Accord was produced in three trim levels, the DX, EX and LX models. All three models were available in both two-door coupe and four-door sedan versions. A 2.2-liter in-line four-cylinder engine was the only engine available for the 1992 Accord. Its ignition system uses a distributor-style ignition, with a single coil on top of the valve cover. The ignition control module controls the spark for the 1992 Accord.
Things You'll Need
- Multimeter or ohmmeter
Raise the hood and set the hood prop. Locate the ignition coil at the top of the valve cover, on the passenger side of the engine. Remove the four pin or P4 connector from the left side of the coil by hand, and the ignition wire from the right side of the coil.
Turn the dial indicator on your multimeter to the ohms setting. Place the multimeter's red probe on the A post of the electrical connector port on the coil. The A post is the bottom-left prong inside the connector port. Place the multimeter's black probe on the C post, directly above the A post. If the resistance measurement is not 0.6 to 0.8 ohms, the coil needs to be replaced.
Keep the red probe from the multimeter attached to the A post. Move the black probe to the other side of the coil and place it on the coil secondary winding post. This measurement should be between 14,000 and 22,000 ohms. If the measurement is not within these specifications, replace the ignition coil.
Move the red probe to the bottom right D post. Move the black probe to the post just above the D post, which is the B post. If the measurement between the B and D posts is not between 2,090 and 2,310 ohms, replace the ignition coil.
