Code 15 indicates a problem with the ignition output signal. There are a number of things it could be: the rotor, the igniter, the coil, the spark plug wires and/or their connections to the plugs. The rotor, igniter, and the coil can all be replaced. They are all, in the 1991, inside the distributor.
The basic check for ignition and battery supply to the ECU(computer) is to turn the ignition switch to on(do not start the car) to see if a battery or oil pressure light comes on, but that, in itself doesn't prove a lot (you've already said that the car starts; it just doesn't start easily).
It is time, I'm afraid to have your coil and igniter checked, or replaced.
Hope this is helpful.

1991 honda accord lx cooling fan


Some vehicles have sensors that can control the electric fan with the ignition off to keep the heat buildup that naturally occurs right after turning off the engine. This can prevent hard starting that can happen with a hot engine. If it is doing this an abnormal amount, the sensor that is operable with the ignition off may be failing. Before turning off the ignition, check to see if the engine temperature is pushing the 'red zone;' if it is, then the fan operation may be normal but your engine may be running hot.

1991 honda accord - runs rough and stalls on start up.


Did you set the ignition timing after you installed the dist.? If yes, I'd say you got a bad distributor(the one you just put in) since all the codes you're getting are directly for sensors located within the distributor.
