SOURCE: Car idles too high and dies
The later 80's accords have a problem with idling being to high at start up, even when the ambient air temp does not warrant it. I have had a 86 and now an 87 accord and both did that. I pretty much deal with it, being as you cant hardly replace indiv carb parts. Adjusting the idle will do nothing to stop it either. I took my 86 to a shop when I still had it and he fixed it, but I cant remember what all he did. I know he drilled a couple small holes in the choke plate. I think that the thermowax valve is bad, but again, you cannot find just a thermowax valve or anybody who knows what it is. Replacement carb in my area is about $450. Like I said, you might just have to learn to live with a high idle at start up.

Could be the belt(s).
If not that, could be a loose hose coming from the turbo. If it build boost and the hose is loose, it'll chirp. At least, it would on my turbo bike. Sounded like a balloon releasing air when the neck is pinched.

check the earth wire first,wattage on the bulbs in case their wrong or old type bulbs ,check supply voltage ,if all ok then fit aux spot lights .if still having a problem have eyes checked as over 40 the old peepers can deteriorate ,dont know the name of it but it can affect some people at a younger age than others,glasses will not correct this problem.

Take some WD40 and with engine running spray some around all vacume lines if a line is leaking the engine will rev up, than you will know where its at, just watch where you spray it, stay away from exhaust and electrical as much as possible, you don't need to spray a whole lot,A intake gasget might be leaking too try around there consentrating around #1 cyl., just be carefull don't need a fire.
