    I parked my car in the driveway back in sept while i was at school and came home this weekend to start it and drive it around but it won't start. its getting fuel but no spark so i tried a new dizzy and still nothing. i also checked the grounds and they seem alright. anybody have any ideas on why its not getting spark even after a new dizzy?

    new dizzy or used dizzy? does it crank? is the battery alive? have you tried jumping it? My rsx gets left alone a lot of the time and when i go to start it up, the battery will have enough juice to power everything but the starter.

    Make Sure That Your Timing Belt Did Not Break.

    check main relay behind clutch pedal,all the way up and back to the firewall. its about 2"tall and 3"wide. have #'s on spare one if you need to identify. My 94' d16 Sol sometimes takes 3 trys to fire off,also check all your fuses,my 95' GSR Sol poped a littlte 7.5 amp and woulnt start and thought it was relay.

    main relay should click twice when ignition turned,put hand on it you should feel it.
