1994 HONDA PASSPORT 2.4 CRANKS, RUNS 5 SECONDS, THEN DIES
AFTER IT DIES, YOU CAN TURN THE KEY OFF THEN ON AGAIN AND CRANK IT. IT RUNS FOR 5 SECONDS AND DIES AS IF IT IS RUNNING OUT OF GAS. FOR SOME REASON I BELIEVE THE FUEL PUMP QUITS PUMPIMG UNTIL YOU RESET IT BY TURNING THE KEY OFF AND THEN ON AGAIN.
I have a 2000 Honda Passport. Once mine stalled, it would not restart. Sounded as if out of gas. I thought fuel pump. Took it to service station. They found a short in the electrical system. The fuse kept popping. They replaced blown fuse in coil and module. The tested misc wiring in main harness. They found and repaired bad wires in main harness for module and coils in left front inner fender.

I just read a rather lengthy dissertation from some other frustrated owner with the same kind of problem. He had 2 causes: The first was low fuel pressure that a new pump fixed. The other was the harmonic balancer (on front of engine, bottom pulley of timing belt). It has a metal inner and outer ring with rubber sandwiched in between. For some reason the rubber had gotten hot and allowed the outer ring (cam timing) to move compared to the inner ring (crank timing). Once the balancer cooled down, the rubber seemed solid again. The timing mark on the outer ring should line up with the key slot on the inner ring.
Isince it cranks, means you have power, elctric system is ok! I guess.. this could be a result of gas delivery problem... either a pump or gas circuit controller.... OR a small propable reason if you have an immobilizer (electronic chip on key!)... but there should be the securit key highlithed on dashboard...
Possibly, or too much, due to a bad coolant sensor. (Assuming it is injected.) You will need to get a scanner hooked up that can read live data to see what temperature the sensor is telling the computer. Also, you should get the fuel pessure tested.
Get into your passport and unlock all doors. Leave drivers door open. Put key into ignition. Turn to ON (not start), then OFF three times within 5 seconds. Close and open the drivers door twice. Turn key to ON then OFF 5 times within 5 seconds. Close then open the drivers door. Press either the lock or unlock button on the remote. Doors will lock then unlock. Press the button again. Doors will lock then unlock again. Close door to finish programming. If it doesnt work, try it again but turn the key faster. You have to do it all pretty quick, but I had it done on the second try.
try this: turn key on, crank starter for 1 second, leave key on for 10 minutes. after 10 min. shut key off and repeat 3 times. (on second try, crank a sec. or so longer, the reprogram may take off right away. if not, repeat make sure battery is strong, key could be on for 1/2 hr. sometimes engaging emergency brake before key is turned on prevent daytime running lites to come on to save battery power (if equipped). been through it, thought i'd mention it
