    So i have an 88CRX DX with a fresh DOHC ZC and just installed my MSD cap, coil and 6a box. I went through the car wash and my car died when i got out and i showed codes 4 and 15. Now the car will not start and it ran perfect before i went in with no codes.\

    ANY IDEAS?

    simple when you installed the dissy and cap did you check the ring seals? also after washing a motoer pop the cap and spray the inside of the dissy out with wd40

    wire dryer, the spray can of it is 1.95 at autozone, grab it and spray the components dry, then youll be off like a prom dress.

    I suggest spending some time and weatherproofing all your connections. At least using some di-electric grease in the connections to keep moisture out. Its a cheap lill bit of insurance.

    grease


    like i said, di-electric grease in all the connectors to keep them dry, and make sure the distributor cap and boots are sealed as well. Then you can drive thru a lake and be running strong
