    Thank you, I will check the relay and the pcm. Where under the passenger side carpet is the computer? Is it easy to get to? You are the first person that has had an answer for me.

    ok it got worse, i was on the freeway this morning and the yellow light came on and the car cut out, i had to sit for 20 minutes before it would go off, my brother said he can read the diagnostic codes manually to find out what it is...can he?

    Well we ended up pulling out the ECU fuse under the hood on the passenger side (10amp) and left it out for about 20 minutes and then popped it back in, the yellow light has not come on all day, no cutting out while driving, seems to be a cure for now. What I was told is by doing that you just reset the computer, eventually whatever the code was that was problematic will return, but for now, I am happy cause my car runs great. Thank you for your help:)

The light should go off when the key is turned on with in 5 seconds if it does not then either the pcm main relay is bad or the pcm it self the pcm is your computer.the relay is under the drivers dash and the computer is under the passenger side carpet. the relay is alot cheeper.

I have a 92 honda accord and it keeps dieing

Fuel pump relays are a common problem with Hondas.
I would check the fuel pressure when it won't start.
You may also have a problem with the fuel filter or the pump.
There is a long list of possibilities.
Is the check engine light on ?

92' honda accord lx when hot does not want to start

You need to repair or replace your car's main power relay. It is a known fault on those early 90's Accords. When it gets hot, it fails and won't supply power to the fuel pump or distributor. Have it replaced.

I have a 1997 honda accord lx 6 cylinder 24 valve engine that the check engine light is on and the D4 light was blinking yellow and then now is blinking green. what could be the problem?

The check engine light comes on if there is an issue.But Honda also has preset the Check engine light to come on to remind you of oil changes.If you want to shut the Check engine light off.There is a Yellow Reset Button inside the Fuse panel.

Check engine and d4 lights on

d4 is flashing as a trouble code for the automatic transmission... i would say without research that it is a code for a transmission solenoid. maybe while washing the car some water got in and caused a short...these solenoids are usually could try disconnscting the battery for 30 clear the trouble code and then start the car. remember you may lose your preset info!
