My accord will not start for some reason. The ignition coil was really bad, so I replaced it. But the car still did not start. As soon as I start cranking the engine, the check engine light comes on and the code that it shows is P1382. I thought it could be the distributor that could also be bad. Replaced it but still nothing, All it dose is crank and only one spark plug wire shoots sparks. It cranks hard like it wants to start but only one cylinder is receiving spark and that is cylinder # 4. The timing belt is good and so is the compression of the engine. I also replace the wires, but still nothing. Can someone please help me I really need to fix my car. I will appreciate it so much.

Hi vetcprelude,

P1382 = Cylinder Position (CYP) sensor.

Here are the procedures for diagostics.

DTCS P1381 & P1382 - CYLINDER POSITION - (CYP) SENSOR
NOTE: DTC P1381 indicates intermittent interruption in CYP sensor circuit.
DTC P1382 indicates no signal in CYP sensor circuit.

1 . Perform PCM reset procedure. Start engine. If DTCs P1381 and/or P1382 are not present, system is okay at this time.Failure is intermittent. Check for poor connections or loose wires between CYP connector and PCM connectors. If DTCs P1381 and/or P1382 are present, turn ignition off. Disconnect distributor connector.

2 . On Accord (F22B1 engine), measure resistance between sensor terminals No. 4 (CYPP) and No. 5 (CYPM). See Fig. 12 . On Accord (F22B2 engine) and Prelude, measure resistance between sensor terminals No. 2 (CYPP) and No. 4 (CYPM). See Fig. 13 . On Accord, resistance should be 800 - 1500 ohms. On Prelude, resistance should be 500 - 1000 ohms.

3 . If resistance is not as specified, replace distributor. If resistance is as specified, check for continuity between ground and CYP sensor terminals No. 2 and 4 (Accord F22B1) or terminals No. 4 and 5 (Accord F22B2 and Prelude) individually. See Fig. 12 or Fig. 13 . If continuity exists, replace distributor.

4 . If continuity exists, reconnect distributor connector. Disconnect PCM connector "C". See Fig. 4 . Measure resistance between PCM connector terminals C4 and C14 If resistance is not 800 - 1500 ohms, repair open in appropriate wire(s).

5 . If resistance is 800 - 1500 ohms, check for continuity between ground and PCM connector terminals C4. If continuity exists, repair short in appropriate wire(s). If continuity does not exist, substitute a known-good PCM and recheck. If symptom or problem goes away, replace original PCM.
