Question about 1991 Honda Accord

2 Answers

1991 Honda Accord ~ won't always start on warm days ~ especially on multiple trips. The relay (left of the steering wheel under the dash) was replaced and the car started. If the car fails to start, we've just been popping out the current relay and putting the old relay in and the car would start. Now that doesn't always work. Any suggestions? This is my daughter's car and she really can't afford a car payment right now. Or a repair bill!

I would test the relay with a multimetre first and check if it's the right one for your car , if you can't do this like I say to others go to your local kwik fit on a Saturday morning and some do little private jobs on these days , have a few pounds in the hand , my mate does it only saturdays or Sunday best times good luck colin

If you can get engine started by swapping the relay. it could mean there is a fault in the feed wires for the relay or it could be a damaged relay socket, over time the connections can come weak as the copper becomes weak and temperature changes can make them lose contract. you may be able to make them tight fitting again but do this with the battery disconnected so you don't sort out anything.

SOURCE: 95 Honda Accord LX will not Start - This is a doozy.

I live in NY and we just got hit by a storm temp went down to zero tried to start it up monday morning and it would not start up. sounds like the fuel pump is not as loud as it used to be. i unplugged the fuel pump fuse and i couldnt hear anything. plug it back it it sounds like its trying to pump. but i mean my pump used to be loud really loud now its very quite. When i had the fuse out it would turn over but not attemps at starting just cracking. it wont start even when i spray starting fluid in the air filter. but when i connect the fuse it sounds like every forth crack the motor sputters but nothing ever close to starting. I have a 95 honda Accord LX also, please anything i can do at home i will try. i am about to drop the gas tank and replace the fuel pump but not in the mood to do so if its not the issue.

Good Morning,
Check for moisture in the Distributor and use a blow dryer to dry it out. You may want to consider changing your Spark Plug wires to a "Moisture Resistant" type. Please let me know if this helps you and thank you for using FixYa!

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1990 honda accord

Under the driver's side dash. It is up pretty far on the outside panel but stuffed inside the dash. You may be able to locate it better if you pull the vent to the left of the steering wheel but i think you need to remove it from the bottom.

Looking for the fuel pump relay or sensor

The Fuel pump relay is part of the EFI main relay and can not be replaced separately. The EFI main relay is located behind the dash, left of the steering wheel.

Car wont start

I had a problem with a 1991 Honda Accord and the fix was a weird one. My car would run fine and start fine if it was cold outside. If I left my car in the sun and the interior got hot, my car wouldn't start.

(Since you drove to San Diego this may be the problem)

I found out that if I left my windows open and let the inside of the car cool down, it would start. Strange.....

Apparently, there is a main relay box under the steering wheel that triggers the starter motor and fuel injection. In the Honda's made around 1991, the contacts in that box would expand and would not let the electricity flow.

I guess you can repair the relay box, but replacing it might be a better bet ($50). I took my car to three different mechanics before any of them had heard of this problem.

The fix was simple, but the problem was hard to diagnose.

Dash light DRL stays on

Bad solders in DRL relay located left side of steering column below change drawer behind dash. It will be indicated with a stamp DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT RELAY. Remove it and redo the solders to the relay contacts in the unit. This will fix the DRL light in dash, return the DRL system to functioning and will also fix headlight not working problem.
