Question about 1998 Honda Accord
The car will go days w/no problem, then out of the blue, will take twenty or more tries to start. While trying to start the car it will come on for a second, then cut off like i turned the ignition off; dash lights go off too. Also, while driving the car, it will suddenly turn off then back on again for no apparent reason. Ive replaced the distibutor and it did not solve it. Then I had a new main relay replaced which did not fix it either. The other weird thing the car does which I believe is related is, after driving for awhile, usually w/ the AC going, I begin to hear a high pitched buzzing sound. The car will again begin to cut off and on. Then, when I turn the car off, the power locks wont work and the clock gets reset. I have spent over $500 so far trying to fix this problem, nobody seems to know what to do...PLEASE HELP!!
Either your main relay is defective or you need a new ICM(ignition control module). Take the main relay out and look very closely for hairline cracks on the soldering. Good luck.

Have you had a scan done on it, that should tell you what the problem is.
