Stolen/Recovered RRW, new ignition not working

Evening guys and gals.

Just spent a rather wet afternoon replacing the ignition base on my 1998 blade. When she was stolen a few months back the buggers tried hotwiring her by slicing the wires from the base of the ignition.

Now, to save myself from having to have a seperate key for the ignition, i bought an OEM ignition base from a honda dealer. Got around to fitting it today and it doesn't seem to give any power.

Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? doesn't even set my alarm off when the key is turned. Doubt it's a duff base as bought from honda directly.

Also, 98/99 model has the pink wire, could this and the zener diode be related?

Cheers,
Herms

Re: Stolen/Recovered RRW, new ignition not working

Hi have you checked the main 30A fuse on the starter relay?

But you do have power at the battery?

Was a bit low, so charged up to full but still nada.



It has a datatool veto evo alarm/immobiliser fitted, not sure but could something have blown in that which could need replacing?

Re: Stolen/Recovered RRW, new ignition not working

So you said they tried to hot wire it by splicing wires. Did you have to splice anything back? Or were you able to just plug and play the new base in? I assume you bought the complete kit with the gas cap as well to keep one key? Anything else noticed out of the ordinary that they may have ruined? I would take the alarm junk off, didn't seem to help if they still got away with it.

They did rip the seat off and i noticed the 30amp fuse was pulled up from it's snug cosy place. Doesn't look like anything was really tampered with though or disconnected/cut.
Just bought literally the ignition base, so was able to screw that in to my original barrel, plug it in, and thus keep my original keys.

And while the alarm didn't really help stop them stealing it, i do believe it was dumped as they were unable to start it, so it at least stumped joyriders and such. Kinda like the piece of mind that theres at least something on it that will deter some of the lower scum. Though it's as they say, if they really want it, they'll just take it.

Ah. Ok. That's great, keeps the original key barrel. Nice. I can only guess that there is something amiss with the either the harness or the alarm. Do you have any lights or dash info when you turn the key? Or do you get nothing? It could be as simple as a blown fuse in he fuse block. Check them as well. Could have shorted something when they fiddled with the wires. Keep checking.

Aye, tis a lot simpler being able to keep the one key.
Noticed that when alarm sets the dash lights up as well as full lights and Indies so they're getting power. Gonna test input and output on the alarm when I take the rear end apart tomorrow. Gotta refit the ignition though at some point. Missed a little piece out meaning it's not quite as smooth.
