    alright i just bought a crx and it has no spark what so ever!! i put a new ignition coil in it because that was bad new battery because that was gone!! but i have no node light on the ecu and when i bought it some one cut the distributor out of it. no instead of getting a new harness i just spliced the wires for the distributor into the clips i cut off another car and hooked it into the distributor!! now the question is can my ecu be bad and should i just go get a harness and hook it up right???

    alright heres what happend. i checked it and it didnt click but i found a fuse blow so i changed that and the main relay click. but than like 2 seconds and the fuse blew again. plus the light on the ecu lit up so i know its getting power now. but now i cant figure out why the fuse is blowing and how i can figure out what the hell is causing it????
