1991 Honda Accord Starting/Ignition trouble

I have a 1991 Honda Accord. It will not start. It cranks for a couple of seconds then just clicks, If the headlights are turned on the entire car loses poer once the ignition is switched to on. All the lights shut off Ind and i hear a click and buzzing then nothing. A few seconds later lights come back on. Have replaced the battery which would not hold a charge and starter because it was shooting sparks and smoke when cranking but still no luck. Is there a relay or switch that may be shorted?

Sounds like a bad battery or the battery cables are corroded where they hook up to the battery or loose. if it cranks for a couple seconds slow than clicks quickly there isnt enough voltage getting to the starter. not all new parts are good.

Car has trouble starting in heat


Your main power relay is bad and acts up when it gets hot, especially in hot weather. It controls power to the fuel pump and ignition systems. Have the main relay re-soldered or replaced.

1991 Honda Accord won't start. Battery seems ok


Sounds like the distributor. But you may have a faulty replacement coil..get an exchange and see if it is faulty. I have received many replacement parts that fail prematurely.

91 Honda Accord wont start after it warms up


No, the main relay isn't the problem. Most likely, the high temp made it a bit more difficult to start, then it sounds like it may have 'flooded' (too much fuel, since it had trouble starting right away). Letting it sit for awhile will solve a fuel flooding problem. Make sure the coolant level is where it should be, and car is not due for a tune up. Extreme heat or cold is tough on an engine, and a few small problems can prevent the car from starting in those conditions. How long has it been since plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, fuel and air filters have been replaced? Just make sure you keep up on the maintenance, and remember. the accord is getting on in years. How many miles? Good luck with the Honda, it's a great car (I have a 91 Prelude and a 92 Accord).

1991 honda accord - runs rough and stalls on start up.


Did you set the ignition timing after you installed the dist.? If yes, I'd say you got a bad distributor(the one you just put in) since all the codes you're getting are directly for sensors located within the distributor.
