Question about 1992 Honda Accord
You can have great spark, but, if the ICM is not firing at the right time, the engine won't start. The ICM's job is to precisely control spark, under the direction of the ECM. When the ICM is failing, it doesn't fire at the right time or it doesn't fire at all. In your case, it's an issue of timing.
If the ICM and coil are good, but the engine still doesn't start, the problem frequently involves the distributor housing, where one or more internal sensors (CKP, CYP, or TDC) have failed. For Hondas, I only recommend Honda genuine housings.
If the CEL comes on and goes off after two seconds, when the ignition switch is turned to ON (Position II), focus only on the distributor if the engine doesn't start. That test says the main relay, fuses, ignition switch, and ECM are fine.

In my case, it turned out to be a harness from the steering column to the fusebox (inside) that they called the "pigtail". (It connects to the ignition switch; I think it actually IS the ignition switch on one end and a large connector on the other going to the fusebox, about 20" long.)

I know that early 90's Honda's had problems and in fact a recall on the distributor. Might want to replace the distributor. Inside of the distributor is a part called the igniter which is the ignition module and that is what normally goes out. I cannot remember if you have to replace the whole distributor to get the igniter or if you can just replace the igniter itself. Has been a few years since I have worked on one. hope this helps but if not please contact me. I'm not sure about the drive light flashing thing though, new one on me.
