    Justme77360 is your D4 flashing when turn your key before starting the car? If it is you might need to replace your TCU/TCM.

    car runs fine, i shut it off and later go to start it, it won't start and the D light (the light on dash that indicates the car is in drive) blinks.  Then i'll try to start it the next day, and it starts no problem. what the hell is this?  I don't want to junk the car because it runs great when it's running.

Sounds like something is getting hot and doesn't like to start up again. In the 60s & 70s there was the "vapor lock" phenomenon with the gas line getting hot near the radiator hose- a mechanical pump- old school style. The gas would vaporize and cavitate in the pump and wouldn't restart intermittently after running a while. The solution was to jam an old sock between the radiator hose and the gas line. Your Honda is no small block V-8 hoop-dee, but I use this as a demonstration of the idea that weird things can happen when parts get hot.

A likely suspect is the the dist ignition coil or transistor- test for marginal ohms values that go out of tolerance when hot. Heat raises resistance, so look for nearly out of tolerance high ohms readings as suspect. This makes for a hard or non-start situation even if it is running good down the road. Of course make sure your cooling system is flushed, filled, bled & pressure tested first to eliminate a universal overheating situation first. This kind of problem can be a real bear to track down, but I would think "What's getting hot?" Could be lots of things, but my guess is something electronic malfunctioning or throwing off values that cause a malfunction in the ECM feedback loop. You might want to check your computer codes to see if it gives you any hints. Good luck.

    Just thought of this additional note-, check the 'choke'. You need this when you start cold, but it will cause it to flood and not run if the engine is normal hot after running. Old cars have a bimetal coil, but your Honda is likely an electronic control or a hybrid type. You'll have to check your manual for procedures. It's another thing to check out before you buy a bus pass.

Try cleaning all the grounds especially the one for the ECM this is located on thermostat housing. Had this same type issue. Does the check engine light come on when before you start the car If it doesn't it is usually the grounds. Most cars have this same problem where a ground wire has become tarnished. Can you hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position if not. Main relay (located under dash up underneath 10mm long extension to reach is easier) is also a major item of failure. Try resoldering the connection or purchase a new one from foreign car parts.

1992 yamaha waverunner 111 wra650q Runs great until you shut it off or it shuts off? Ok as long as you restart in a few seconds it will fire instantly , if you wait 5 minutes or longer it will turn over...

Not real familiar with waverunners (this is a car and truck section after all), but remember that when you have been riding and stop engine it gets much hotter. Could possibly be coil "Heat Soak", or even a fuel system vapor lock issue caused by a pinhole leak in a line or a bad gas cap. Not very confident in this, but the best I got. Try posting in the waverunner section.

My car has been running fine. Starts each morning once to drive kids to school. An hour later for me to drive to work. But for the last two mornings won't start back up after working 4 hours. I noticed...

Sounds like the alternator is going out the slow way.
Youre kinda lucky because almoat all alternators go out without warning.
Most Autozone shops or places like it will run a test for free.
Good luck,Gary

Every time I open the door nad drive the car, then shut it off the alarm goes off and I can not find a way to shut it off. How do you do it? I also do not have the key fobs.

quickest way i know of here is providing its a factory immobilisor and not a boy racer add on then take the chip out of the key and tape it under the shroud next to the transponder ,This way the car thinks its got the key in and this will stop the alarm
