Question about 1991 Honda Accord
1991 honda accord wont turn over just drove all the way to san diego no problems
I had a problem with a 1991 Honda Accord and the fix was a weird one. My car would run fine and start fine if it was cold outside. If I left my car in the sun and the interior got hot, my car wouldn't start.
(Since you drove to San Diego this may be the problem)
I found out that if I left my windows open and let the inside of the car cool down, it would start. Strange.....
Apparently, there is a main relay box under the steering wheel that triggers the starter motor and fuel injection. In the Honda's made around 1991, the contacts in that box would expand and would not let the electricity flow.
I guess you can repair the relay box, but replacing it might be a better bet ($50). I took my car to three different mechanics before any of them had heard of this problem.
The fix was simple, but the problem was hard to diagnose.
