1991 Honda Accord LX Wagon
The car turns over, but will not start.
The battery is fine, the distributor sparks, fuel is fine.
Usually, if you wait an hour and try again, it starts. The last time
this happened (1 week ago) it wouldn't start all day Saturday, but
started up just fine Sunday Morning and numerous times since then.

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
if you feel savvy enough, check to see if it produces spark and also check if the fuel pump is working. If no spark usually a problem in the distributor. if no fuel coming out of the fuel line, maybe bad fuel pump. need to check if pump is not working.
Code 15 indicates a problem with the ignition output signal. There are a number of things it could be: the rotor, the igniter, the coil, the spark plug wires and/or their connections to the plugs. The rotor, igniter, and the coil can all be replaced. They are all, in the 1991, inside the distributor.
The basic check for ignition and battery supply to the ECU(computer) is to turn the ignition switch to on(do not start the car) to see if a battery or oil pressure light comes on, but that, in itself doesn't prove a lot (you've already said that the car starts; it just doesn't start easily).
It is time, I'm afraid to have your coil and igniter checked, or replaced.
Hope this is helpful.
The computer is located under the carpet, passenger side, where passengers feet would be. If the water was up to the console, your computer was doing the back stroke, and I'm afraid it drowned. Sorry! countrycurt0
