    last night i took my 91 ef hatch with a ls swap to the track and made one pass ran fine.
    drove fine all the way back to staging shut the car and wouldnt start back up, cranking and cranking it finally fired over idled fine so i shut the car off. I figured since it had started it would be fine to drive home then. Wrong now the car wont start again, I have spark will fire on ether, fuel pump is working and i have a check engine light on i think. my question is how do i check the light on a swapped car? is there a special procedure? im new to the honda world dsm's are my thing but just done have the patience for them any more any help PLLLLLEEEEASSSE????

    There should be a 2-pin connector either under the hood on the driver's side; has a yellow(IIRC) rubber cover on it. Jump that with a paperclip or something. Depending on the ECU, you'll have to either count the blinking CEL or the red light on the ECU. one long flash=10 and short ones =1, and you'd add them together. ie: 3 long and 3 short=code 33.

    A properly maintaned, stock engine Honda will typically run forever. Once you start in with the swaps and the modifications and the racing then who knows what the hell will happen...

    Did you check under the dash for the service connector?

    I have a 92-95 and mine is under my glove-box. Just like K2e2vin said, after you jump the plug, you check it like morris code.
    Your best option is to figure that out and let the ECU tell you whats up.

    What ECU? Motor? OBD converted? Stuff like that is needed for guys on here to be able to help more

    What I meant by 'motor' is B18A or B18B?

    If u have an obd 0 ecu from a 90-91 integra, the red light on the ecu will automatically blink if there is a hard code. If your car has been converted to obd 1, there might be a 2-pin plug on the conversion harness at the ecu.

    found the connector thank you, also found a code 16 injectors, so i checked them and found they have 11 ohms but i have no resistor box would this be the reason why my ecu popped a fuse? the drew to much voltage. im only getting milli volts at the injector connector

    Injectors are out of a B18A? Find some to swap in their place....and check ohm load then or check line for continuity....??

    Yes. I fail to see how that negates what I said...
