Question about 1993 Honda Accord
My car will not start when the inside interior of the car is extremly hot. With this problem i'm having to open all windows and open the car door and having to wait anywhere to 15min to 2hours maybe longer before it will start again depending the tempature outside or if the car is parked in the direction of the sun. what would cause this problem i have never heard of this with any car. Is this a manufacters problem in the beginning.
Does it turn over but not start and run, or does it not even turn over?
If it is the latter, there are some underdash electrical components that could be the problem.
The most likely problem is a fuse/relay box that is connected to a black wire with white stripe from the ignition switch on one post and a white wire with red stripe on the other that goes to either a neutral safety switch if automatic tranny, or clutch interlock switch if it is a manual tranny.
This is actually an automatically resetting circuit breaker, and it thermally (heat) activated, although the heat source is supposed to be a short length of resistance wire, not interior heat. If this is weak, or if it is exposed to extremely high temperatures, it will kill power to the starter.
Locate this device, and when you have this problem, jumper the two wires together and see if it will now start. If so, then that is the problem and replacement is called for.
Try that and let us know how it goes, and let me know if you have other questions or need further assistance.
Thanks and good luck!
