1992 Honda Accord won't start when hot- main rely?

1992 Honda Accord won't start when hot - not sure if it's "firing" but I"ve seen comments that it's related to a main relay - one that might be located other than in the manual - behind the cruise control box to the left of legs.....sound like it might fix the problem.......It finally happened when someone else could see it besides me. When checked, it "didn't appear to be getting fuel" is the only other hint I have - but the idea of being a fuel pump and it not dying about a couple of times doesn't seem logical.

    Do you by any chance have the location of an online diagram/schematic showing the exact locaton of the cruise control box and main fuel relay?

    Thanks.

The relay that you are speaking of would be my primary suspicion. it is called a main relay, they typically run about $50 - $80. these are common for the contacts wearing out and becoming inopperable when hot, and not allowing the fuel pump to power up. good luck!

92' honda accord lx when hot does not want to start


You need to repair or replace your car's main power relay. It is a known fault on those early 90's Accords. When it gets hot, it fails and won't supply power to the fuel pump or distributor. Have it replaced.

1992 honda accord turns over, but doesn't start--there is plenty of fuel--it fired for a moment then died. It is fuel injected.


A common problem with this year Honda is the main relay becomes hot and the internal connections open up, causing a no start condition. I am assuming everything else is in good working condition. The main relay is located on the driverside kick panel up about 12 inches from the floor, mounted with a single bolt and looks like this;

My 92 Honda Accord will not start in Hot weather {90 to 100 degrees plus} also I noticed when these episodes occur the drive indicator light, on the dash will flash off and on. The engine will turn...


a common problem with this year accord was the main relay. they have bad solder joints so when they heat up, the solder joints didn't make good contact, and you have a d4 blinking and no starting problem.

above is a link on how to locate and remove the main relay, and if money is an issue, use a soldering iron to do the link below because a new main relay is around 50 dollars. its a video to resolder the joints on a main relay of a honda civic, but the same concept applies.
