Question about 1992 Honda Accord
My 94 accord ex does the same thing on small trips a couple mile away. Once its off it will start but stall. If you let it sit for 5-10 minutes and turn off all accessories, and make sure you hear the fuel pump (cycle the key), then give it a try and it starts up. I normally rev the car slightly to prevent stalling, and then let the idle stabilize. In regards to the relay you mentioned I believe that its either in the cars fuse block panel inside by your feet on drivers side, and in the engine bay passenger side. Hope that helps. Check the basics first like fluids, fuses, then go about diagnosing what each individual relay actually does. Your service manual or hanes manual will tell you what they control.
I have the same issue with my 94 Accord EX (but don’t have iPod plugged in). It seems that this could be the PGM-FI Main Relay and is very common to fail. It has a circuit board that is common to have cracks in the solder joints that will interrupt power to the fuel pump and/or fuel injectors (depending on model) & the engine will not start because they don't have 12 volts to operate. Also, the cars computer may give an error 16 (injectors bad) because it doesn’t read the injectors volts.
This main relay is located under the driver side dash above the cruise control unit. Lie on your back on the driver’s floor board; remove the cruise control unit [silver box about 8"X4"] above that on the driver side of the steering column will be the main relay.
You will only see the base of it and the plug with the big fat wires going into it (Grey box/Brown base) it says "Mitsuba RZ-00XX" on the side of it.
You can cheat at this point and instead of unbolting the entire relay housing, use a small screwdriver to pop the guts out of the housing.
Then replace with a new PGM-FI Main Relay or re-solder the joints and place back in the housing.
