Question about 1991 Honda Accord
Hello: I had the EXACT same problem for the last two years! Would not start (tried to), but then simply would not. Finally, after spending a few hundred dollars, some dear person on this site recommended I have my "main relay" replaced. The part was $68.00 and the labor was $40.00 (plus PA tax). I WOULD NOT recommend having a "dealership" do this work, because they charged me $250 "diagnostic charges" and "found nothing wrong". Hello!! They looked at me like I'm NUTS! So, I called Honda MFG in Torrence, Calif, and they said that a problem "like mine", had NEVER been reported to them. Never even heard of it! Well, the mechanic that fixed mine said that he's replaced at least a dozen of these relays in Honda Accords UNDER the year 2000, and said that if I didn't want to spend the money for a new relay, I should "simply leave the doors open" when it's hot outside, and it would have the same effect. You see, the solder gets "hot" in this "main relay", which is under the "change cup" to the left of your steering wheel, and a handy person could "fix it without the aid of a mechanic". But, hey, I'm 70, and I didn't want to be down on my knees fooling with this thing, taking it apart and installing this new "main relay". The mechanic even showed it to me, it's a square black box. Hope this helps. I absolutely LOVE THIS WEBSITE. Cheers!
