Question about 1999 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Main Relay I have a problem with my 99 Civic stalling and hard starting. After doing some research, I concluded it's likely the main relay. I took it out and looked at it, and it seemed to be fine. I then plugged it back and so far the car seems to run a lot better. So is it possible that by taking the relay out and putting it back in, that i "reset" the fuel pump. Or am I just temporally lucky?

Many things could have happened by just re seating the relay. My guess is you had a bad contact due to corrosion and you just cleaned the contacts. It would not hurt to pull it out and do a thorough cleaning of the relay.

SOURCE: 1989 honda civic randomly hard to start

Is the vehicle wanting to turn over? If not at all, look at the ignition switch, sometimes the contacts wear down and intermittant problems arise, such as not starting or car will die while driving.

SOURCE: 1991 Honda Civic DX starting problem

normally that happens with a fuel pump going bad or your ignition coil gets to hot n shuts down. when it happens again, take your spark plug wire off, have someone to help you start the car if no spark its gotta be your fuel pump

SOURCE: 1999 Honda Accord won't start. No fuel pressure,

The relay may be located in the under hood fuse/relay box.
Check your manual for the location of the relay, if listed.
Check for a sticker on the inside of the under hood fuse/relay box for a possible guide.

SOURCE: 1990 HONDA ACCORD WON'T TURN OVER TO START BUT IT WILL ROLL START. I HAVE CHANGED THE ALTERNATOR AND TESTED THE IGNITION SWITCH STARTER RELAY SEEMS FINE CLUTCH SWITCH SEEMS FINE MAIN RELAY IS FINE

About the only thing you didn't mention was the starter itself. You could have it tested. But before that, try to see if you have power on the small wire to starter solenoid on the starter, when key is held in cranking position. Pull the small wire off and check for power with a multimeter or a testlight while someone holds the key in crank. This is the signal wire from ignition switch that closes the elec. contacts inside solenoid so the starter gets full power from the battery to spin. (This wire also is in the circuit with the clutch switch and the starter relay.) If you have power on this wire in crank, it is very likely the starter is bad. If there is no power, check that circuit out. It is losing power somewhere from switch to starter solenoid. Good luck.

98 Accord won't start


Check the main relay-PGM-FI Main Relay, called a fuel injector relay(a gray little box with a plug at the end). To make sure it is a bad relay, do this: Turn the key to II, listen for a humming sound from behind you. It is a fuel pump working. You should hear a click under the dash after it. It is a main relay click . If you do not hear a click, you car will not start. If you do hear a click, you car will start.
Fix is to take the relay out, resolder the joints and put it back in. Go on www. MarkLamond.co.uk and http://techauto.awardspace.com both sites will show you how to resolder the main relay and where it is located if it is the PGM-FI Main relay.
