Or Google ur make modle an yr an relay sensor. But im sure that's it. I. A truck guy tho so I'd hate to lie to u. Cars r a lil diffrent than cm trucks especially when it's goin from gmc to honda.

My 98 Accord wont go into park.

wiggle the steering wheel. (read the operators guide, it tells you this fact)
there are 2 functions,
park lock , lockout.
and key lock.
do you have the FSM for your car? yes, then it covers all that.

also the same guide tells you, there is park lockout bypass switch
in the console. ever see that?
it allows you to shift into or out of park when the park lock fails.
for emergency usage.
this bypass assumes the owner read the booklet in glove box
and knows to use his/her brakes, while doing this bypass.
not running over the kids or pets. RTM

be safe !

Car sometimes wont start. Nothing. No clicking grinding or any power. Then after awhile it will start just fine I've checked battery connections all clean and tight.

If lights come on and no click at all with the starter, then it might be shifter postition lockout, defective ignition connector behind the key assembly or a bad connection at the starter. Many mechanics know to bang on the starter with a metal rod and someone turning the key to the start position. Some battery positive cables (should be red) are multi connector type so check the positive for corrosion at all the connectors.

1992 honda accord ex sometimes starts sometimes not

you have a small power(ICM)_ module that is heating up. it's square with 3 promgs 2 on 1 side 1 on the other. I believe it's on the back side of the distributor. 2 screws hold it on/ and the neutral saftey could be giving you problems. it's 1 or the other.

My 98 honda v6, parked on incline now won't start

I think the incline is not the cause; it sounds very much like a battery down from some (possibly interior) light having been on during its downtime. I suggest a jump to see if it is only nothing more mysterious than a depleted battery.

1993 Honda Accord LX turns off for no reason.

Your main relay is shorting out. It's located under the dash on the driver's side.
