Question about 1989 Honda CRX
My 1989 Honda CRX starts when cold, but after a short trip, like to the grocery store, it cranks over, but no fire. I've noticed if I don't hear the fuel pump momentarily make a noise after turning the ignition key on, I might as well save battery and wait several minutes. Sometimes, up to 30 minutes. I believe there have even been times when I hear what I've presumed to be the fuel pump " come alive noise", it still won't start for a while. I called a parts store to inquire about a fuel pump relay, and they said they have no part listed like that. Hmmmmmm.
Easy one.This is a common problem on 88-91 Civics and CRX's.Check your main relay under the drivers side dash.It provides power to the ECU,fuel pump,and injectors.Its a squarish box with a single plug going into it held on by one 10 mm bolt.The solder joints break down over time and cause the condition you're having.You can pry off the plastic cover and resolder the joints if you are handy with a soldering iron,or just ask for a main relay at Autozone,etc.

If you're replacing the relay bring in the old one to the shop to match it up; they're are a couple different styles
