Question about 1992 Honda Accord
My honda civic has a problem when you turn the key to the on position you have to wait until the check engine light goes out before it starts and that can be 10 seconds or 15 minutes. once i get it started and warmed it starts fine for that day. note... the owner just replaced the fuel pump himself (he is not a mechanic)
Ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,
it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.
here is a way to determine that.
when you turn the key on the on position
do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?
if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.
also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.
1 when you turn key to on possition
2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)
3 after the car starts
If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).
the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.
or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)

Check the power cables on the fuel pump they might be loose, when you turn the key to on the fuel pump runs for a few seconds to get fuel to the engine, if it wont start the cables might be loose, if thats not the problem try plugging in a code reader when the check engine light is on and find out what the code means, you should have OBD1 on your car
