I have some electrical issues going on and have a 96. Trying to buy the 95-96 electrical repair manual and think I found a real rough looking one for 200 dollars. I can get one for the 97 for 49 dollars. Is there a load of difference between the two that I should spend all the extra for the really rough one or are most wiring going to be the same.
Thanks
Mike

1997 was a year of significant changes for the NSX with the release of the Na2 which is probably why there was a release on a new version of the ETS. That said, probably 95% of the wiring and the systems went unchanged from 1991 to 2001. However, Honda did weird little things like leaving the functional design of a system unchanged; but, moved the location of things like relays around within a relay box or sometimes completely relocating it to a different box. So, it depends on what you are working on. For most of the stuff, a 1992 or 1997-2002 ETS manual may do the trick. However, if you happen to be working on your EPS or EFI associated problems a 1992 manual will not work and there were also subsequent changes in 1997 because that was the year of the Na2.

So 95% of the time you may be just fine; however, is your problem in the 95% area or the 5% area? Give member [MENTION=30613]Heineken[/MENTION] a PM. He may be able to help you because I think he has done more work collecting information of the electrical systems in the car than I have.

Electrical Troubleshooting 1994 - p/n 61SH000EL may help you.
This is not for your model year, but I would bet pretty darn close.
Same 3.0 engine, I'd almost bet same wiring (someone better than me may disagree).
I have a hard copy, new, but I want to keep it close.
I would be glad to assist. If there is anything I can do to assist please let me know.

Have you talked to the NSX rack guys, they rebuild EPS modules.

Does your 1996 still have the original separate EPS controller and power amplifier or the later combined unit? My knee jerk response without checking the parts numbers is that those will not work. Honda did a number of modifications to the EPS during the NSX production run. The first step would be to get the actual part number on your EPS module(s) or check the link below to find out what part number applies to your model year

You can then search using the correct part number for your 1996. Some of the later units might be backward compatible; but, somebody else will have to advise on that. Depending on what error code your EPS module is displaying, repair might be fairly easy.
