Last winter my 95 honda accord started having problems starting and would sometimes stall. I took it in and the mechanic could not find anything. I started trouble shooting and the battery was bad, replaced it, nothing. Replaced the cable to the battery, nothing. Summer then came, no problems, though I did replace the fuel filter. Now that it is fall and rainy it started cutting out. I replaced the spark plugs, wires, rotor, and cap hoping that was it but this week the tachometer started jumping around and the engine will cut out. I am currently looking for loose ground wires, especially near the manifold but no luck. Any advice will be very helpful, I am affraid my electrical skills are meger.
Honda has issued a recall on several models which have problems with the ignition switch. The recall includes vehicles from about 1992 through 2004 ( I'm really not sure of the years. ) Do a search for Honda ignition switch recall and you'll find some links. When you call the dealer I would suggest that you have your VIN handy so he can confirm your vehicle. This is a recall and should not cost you a dime for the repair.
I had the same problem with a 93 accord when it was about ten years old. The cause was bad bearing in the distributor. In my case, a new distributor was free from the dealer because of a recall. If no recall on the 95 try a junk yard or ebay before paying full price for a distributor used just to troubleshoot.

Look at the crank Position Sensor and the Cam Sensor as well as check the Timing belt for proper operation, if there is a slack of any type in the timing belt the tension device isn't working properly and is the cause of the problem.
The check engine light indicates that there is a problem with one or more of the engine sensors (knock, airflow, etc.) this can also include the transmission sensor.
The possible transmission problem may be causing both warning lights to trigger even before the vehicle's driving performance is affected. Warning lights are indicators of the car's parts that may need your attention. Just like a toothache with our bodies.
Don't wait for any drop in performance before you have this problem checked out by a qualifed technician. Early intervention has proven that is saves you the trouble and greater expense.
First you must check to see what missing. You must have spark at the pugs and gas at the injector for this car to start. See whats missing and get back to me. The 1995 Honda Accord has a history of bad distributor.If there is no spark at the spark plugs replace distributor. However on some models the coil is separate and not in the distributor, if so make sure the coil is working.
I had the same problem with my 1995 Honda Accord V6 2.7L a year ago. It was a pain to have Honda diagnose the problem because it was intermittent and every time I took my car in to the dealership they said they couldn't reproduce the problem, but the longer you wait the more frequently your tachometer will fluctuate. I finally stopped by the dealership when the tachometer was jumping and they were able to diagnose the problem. In my case there was a faulty resistor in the ignition coil, but the entire ignition coil needs to be replaced. I don't know anything about cars but I know this fixed my problem. I went directly though Honda's service center so I know they charged me more than an independent repair shop but I'm looking at my invoice now and I paid $150 for the ignition coil and $200 for labor. After Honda diagnosed the problem I searched for "1995 honda accord ignition coil tachometer" and found that other people had the same problem and replacing the ignition coil was the fix. Hope this helps.
