Question about 1992 Acura Integra Hatchback
It often does this following a long drive. the lights come on, but when i turn the key i get nothing no crank or response from the starter. it is a 5-speed, so i can roll start it , and often the problem goes away after that, and i can drive just fine, and it will start just fine, until the next time i go for a long drive. this problem can go away for weeks and months at a time, then just randomly returns. i have replaced the following ; clutch, starter, distributor, ignitor, plugs,wires, battery, still the problem comes back. all volt readings are solid when the problem occurs, the fuel pump works fine. i am totally stumped on this problem and no one i ask has a clue what it could be!! if you have any ideas i would love to hear them
I had the same problem in my 92 Integra. I bought a new relay from the dealership for like $60.00. What happens is if the car gets too hot, like on a long drive it will lock out the starter. This fixed the problem for me. Let me know if you need the part number and i will dig it out, i still have my old relay.

I have a 91 Acura Integra (5spd) which had the same exact problem. After replacing the battery and starter, I thought I solved the problem for good. But the next hot day, it happened again! Having used up all four service calls per year in my roadside assistance plan, I knew I had to dig deep one last time. Well, on that hot day, I noticed that my cooling fans were running, without a key in the ignition, and the engine off, doors locked, just like I left it. It turns out that on hot days, especially if the vehicle is sitting in the sun, it triggers the cooling fan to turn on thus draining your battery either dead or just below cranking level. The problem is either the cooling fan relay has a short in it, defeating the purpose of the relay, or the cooling fan electrical connector has a short in it. So regardless if the engine, or more importantly, the vehicle is off, the cooling fans will turn on, without you knowing while your at work or at a restaurant, because the temperature sensor has been triggered, and if there's a short in that circuitry, the fans will turn on and it doesn't take much time, for it to drain your battery without the alternator on. So you either have to repair / replace the cooling fan relay or connector. Hope this helps... Good luck!

If it only does it when it's hot it's quite likely the fuel relay. Happened to mine too, just like you describe. no problem when it's cold, but after a long drive or a hot day with the windows up.... Easy to do yourself, you need to remove the panel under the steering wheel and the new relay just pops right back in
