Acura Coupes and Sedans 1986-1993 Repair Guide

Service Precautions


Do not leave the ignition key turned ON for more than 10 minutes, while the engine is not running.
Make sure all EFI harness connectors are fastened securely. A poor connection can cause an extremely high surge voltage in the coil and condenser and result in damage to integrated circuits.
Keep EFI all parts and harnesses dry during service.
Before attempting to remove any parts, turn OFF the ignition switch and disconnect the battery ground cable.
Always use a 12 volt battery as a power source.
Do not attempt to disconnect the battery cables with the engine running.
Do not depress the accelerator pedal when starting.
Make sure the igniter is properly grounded to the body.
Never allow the coil or tachometer terminals to touch ground or damage will result to the igniter or coil.
