This is a very commun problem on honda and accura...

The problem is the Main Relay. This is the result of the poor solder application from factory.

The solution desolder the inadequate terminals and the faulty terminals and resolder them.

Everething is well explained on this site...www.techauto.awardspace.com/mainrelay.html

Good luck

A module under the dash that gets hot due to the sun. I don't remember what it is called.

Sounds like the main relay. Solders inside it crack over time. When it gets hot, they expand and separate which in turn interrupts the signals being sent. I've had it happen to me too on my Legend. The site link below even has a Do It Yourself pictorial. Covers Hondas too.

Yes. Confirm the problem is the main relay located under the dashboard. Once you change it, it'll be okay.

Car starts fine sometimes, runs great. Other times it turns over good but doesn't want to start. Almost sounds like it is flooded.


Hi there,

Honda has a problem in hot weather... If you car has been setting in the sun.... Especially a black car... .and it fails to start..... Cranks over but will not start.... Open the hood and let it sit for about 5 minutes and then try to restart it...... If it works you know that the problem occurs from an over temp in probably the ignition module..... There is also a module on the car that is refered to as the MAIN Power Module... This module has been known to have bad soldering points. If your problem is only related to starting it could be the Main Module.

Hope this helps...........
thanx for using Fixya
have a good day
bye
take care...

1997 HONDA ACCORD WOULD START


May be, Your coolant machine is working too hard.. Because when hot/summer day , if my machine in long journey , and you resting your car , the fan sound is still on although you turn off your machine.. It's means, the coolant machine , or your engine component must be changed... I hope so.

Car turns over, but engine won't "catch" ... If i let it "rest for awhile, and try restarting it usually will start. Battery is new, filter new,...?????


either the main relay under the dash above the fuse box or the ignition switch in the steering column (the solder in both of these components can be affected by high temp int the car, when it cools down, the electrical connection works again.
