Question about 1996 Honda Accord

Sometimes the car will start and other times it wont. We have already changed the main relay. That didn't solve the problem. Is there something else I can try?

If your vehicle has a manual transmission try pushing the clutch in harder as it has a saftey switch on it. Also if it is a automatic try putting the car in neutral to see if that will crank it. Hope this helps,

When it was transported (driven?) to miss. they could have gotten some bad ( water and/or dirt) in the gas.
Change the fuel filter.
Sometimes de-natured alcohol will absorb water.

Hope this helps.

Sometimes car with start right up and other times not at all, its gets no spark when this happens or gas from the fuel injectors

There are two fuses that power the main relay, which powers the injectors and the computer.
I would check that relay first.

Ever since i got my kia rio 2003, it has ome problem... sometimes it s tarts and sometimes it wont... i can wiggle something under the hood sometimes and it will start... other times it wont do a blessed...

My 01 did the same thing, it was the main relay in the fuse box. Try taking the headlight relay and switching it with the main. If that fixes it might want to keep a few on hand, my most recent relay went out was the c/fan which in turn overheated the engine and the fan melted off the motor.

I have a 1998 Honda Accord. I am having problems with the car starting. Sometimes you go out to start the car and it will act like it is not getting gas. You can let it sit for about 10 minutes and then...

I suspect that the main relay is defective. This relay controls the fuel pump and injectors as well as the ECM. If the inside of the vehicle gets hot, the coil windings inside the relay expand and disconnect, once the doors and windows are opened, aloowing the air to cool some what inside , the coils contract, aloowing a good connection in the relay and the car starts. I chased my tail on one of these vehicles with the same sympotoms you are having, and I felt it may be something for you to consider to solve your problem.
