Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 1991 Honda Accord will crank, but not fire. Sometimes it will start and be normal. Then, after shutdown, will just crank with no start. Is there a master power relay controlling ignition and/or fuel and where is it ??

There is a main relay located under the drivers side dash, you have to first remove the cruise control module to view this relay

I have a 1991 accord. The distributor is getting power. We have changed the button and cap. Plugs and wires changed. ECU changed. It will crank, not start. What else could be the problem?

if i remember right there are two sensors in the dist. sometimes they go bad and will not allow the plugs to fire. its easier to replace the dist. then to replace the sensors. you can get one for a junk yard for cheap. thats what i whould try if it has on fire.

My 1991 honda accord won't start after it has been

Start with this at the time it wont start and only cranks over squirt some starting fluid in the intake if it starts and then dies out you have a fuel problem. If youve never changed out the fuel filter that would be a good place to start. If after you squirt some starting fluid in it and it doesnt even start check for spark at the plugs then at the coil and so on. Dont get to stuck on the relay if the relay was bad it wouldnt even start also if you have a way to check the fuel pressure check it and make sure its within specs.

My 1991 Honda Accord will crank, but it will not "start" ...

is the vehicle at running temperature when this happens-it may well be worth a look to see if you still have fuel "wetting" the carby-im not sure onthis model -basic checks should be undertaken to eliminate systems-1 check for spark at plugs while cranking and check if fuel getting to manifold and work from there

Cranks but no spark

if you replaced the distributer, you might want to check and see if you got the vehicle back in timing.
