This is an easy one :-) Hondas of this vintage have a very common problem with the main fuel injection relay. It's way up under the dashboard on the drivers side. It will have "Mitsuba" printed on the side. Replace this relay, it should be available at any parts store.

You have a wire or wires getting wet; (corroded or bare) condensation is the same thing when in garage; when outside the Sun "dries" the moisture and you can start.

A common problem with Fords in hot weather is a weak ignition module. Some are mounted on the side of the dist. The coil can do the same thing.

check the starter relay contacts and the electrical portion of the ignition switch. the heat can expand a solder point just enough to create an open circuit.

How come my 1993 acura integra wont start when its hot outside?


Lol for one thing a window regulator whatever the hell a window regulator is,is not the issue,I have had many hondas and the fuel pump relay IS however a common issue with this gen. I would suggest to anyone with this issue,wait till its hot and wont start,and tap on the fuel pump relay located under the steering column and see if it starts,8 out of 10 times this is the issue.

Check all ground connections, battery to motor ground, battery to body ground connections and motor to body ground strap. These can become corroded and produce all kinds of electrical problems. They may look all right but can be corroded underneath bolt.

Car wont start


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.
