The trick is to do it without throwing a code/CEL.

That being said, I think you're on the right track with the +12v-Ignition thing.

I guess the only way to know for sure is to cut the wire
You could always just solder it back together if it doesn't work right?

Let me know if you find something that works.

Your integra's wiring should be pretty much identical to my civic's (and preludes for that matter)
Well, you were exactly right. It threw a Crankshaft Position Sensor fault code.

I had the distributor apart, took pix, documented the process, wired it up, and nothing happened

Ah, it's all good -- I don't EOC that much anyway, I was hoping it was an easy fix if people needed it.

It wouldn't start with the wire disconnected, but it ran with the switch flipped

Oh well, I guess the best bet is to cut the injectors and reset it with the SG.


BTW, how do you know if your cap and rotor are worn? Seems like an easy install...
