2014 civic si won’t start

Post by gabevaldez97 » Mon Mar 19, 2018 8:32 pm

I just recently purchased hondata flashpro in hopes to tune my car a little, I have an rbc swap, prl intake and a skunk 2 exhaust, I loaded my first calibration thinking everything was good, but now my car won’t start and I have no idea why, I’ve tried loading the stock ecu back but to no avail, please help me

With everything connected and the key in the on position, what does it show in the lower left hand corner of the software?

Go to the online menu and try returning the ECU to stock.

Is it cranking at all, or is it not even attempting to start?

It’s cranking and sometimes will start but not often will it actually start it’ll just crank for a little then die and when it does start it struggles to do so

When was the last time that it started and what have you done since that time?

I would recommend that you return it to stock and unlock the FlashPro and get the vehicle to a Honda dealer for diagnostics as to why it will not start.

Would it matter that my car has some after market parts

It ran with all those parts installed?

It is up to you what parts are installed when you take it to the dealer, but if the ECU is returned to stock and still will not start with all stock parts then there is some other problem that Honda will need to address.
