    Hey guys I'm James. I'm part of a LOW budget race team, we bought a crx with a b18a swap. That is honestly all we know a bout it. We got it from a land lord that foreclosed on a performance shop and he knew nothing about it so yeah.

    OK the problems be, that the spark plugs aren't sparkin. we bought a new dizzy b/c the old one was crap, but the coil isn't getting power.

    I got pics but I'm new so yeah. I'll try and figure that out

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated. We're just a bunch of highschoolers so we dont everything there is to know about anything.:)

    need more info:

    what model is the CRX (DX, Si or HF)?

    what ECU is in the car? ECU will have a sticker on the side with model number like: 37820-PR4-A00 - ECU is located in the passenger side footwell

    when you turn the ignition "on", does the Check engine light come on for 2 seconds and then go off, or does it stay on?

    is the car getting fuel? when you turn the ignition "on", can you hear the fuel pump running?

    Well like I said we know almost nothing about it. The ECU code is 3782-PM6-A09
    The car is gettting fuel. We can hear the fuel pump, and the car has gas. When we pull the plugs to check the spark we can smell the gas.

    Oh and it has no badges so I can only assume that it is a DX

    Its the ECU. The one your using is for crx si. What year motor is the b18a if its 1 90-91 your going to need a pr4 ecu. Hope that helps.
