Yes, and did you tune it up and do all 60 and 100k service points.
spark parts, and filters ? all ?
then its losing spark, check spark quality time number of cylinders.
the PCM will cut fuel if it (thinks?) that spark is bad, this feature (safety) is a spark read back path that tells the ECM/PCM that
spark is good.
so once spark is good, all 4 cylinder. (max) simple tests, (ask)
then its bad fueling, (more simple tests)

do you want us to guess, or explain the simple tests.
some like guessing.
top good guesses are:
1: bad fuel.
2: bad spark (never ever tuned up, this decade)
3: fuel filter packed, fuel pressure very low. or nil. or marginal.
4: wrong gas cap? causes low fuel pressure?

i check spark, then fuel.
to check fuel i fist check pressure, every time.
the squirt test only proves the pump has electr. power, nothing else. I use a real guage to do that., do you have tools and gauges and a volt meter? if not, its all just guessing.

Check the starter motor. Many times they go on there own with no sign, and having someone crank it while using something to tap it often helps it turn over.

1998 honda accord wont start was told its fuel relay inside carunder dash behind fuse box

that would depend. if its the main relay, it would drive normally, but then if you park and turn your car off. when you go to start it again immediately after, it wont. but if it cools a couple of minutes, it will. can you give a little bit more detail on what exactly does it do? like turn over, doesn't turn over? starts and dies? would like to help. goodluck
