Question about 1999 Honda Accord
This car will start 90% of the time. When it fails it seems to have no fuel yet there is power to the pump and the pump runs to charge the system. No codes in the OBD 2 system. No security system light flashing. Main relay??
It's probably your MASTER RELAY. I had the same problem and so did my friend. I searched the net for an answer and always came up with master relay. I took mine out, resoldered it and it hasn't done it again. That was over a year ago. The Master Relay is right under the dash on the drivers side (on my '90 anyway). You just take it out, open the cover, resolder all the connections at the top of it and it's good as new. Apparently the solder they used in Malaysia or whatever was sub-par and when it gets old the solder disconnects after it gets hot. When it cools (usually 5-15 minutes) it will work again.
Go to this link! You will thank me. It is an extremly easy repair and works great. I was sceptical but it worked when Honda dealers, mechanics and everyone else couldn't figure it out. Don't know why more people don't know about this. Everyone I know that has a 90-93 Honda Accord has this same problem. Usually only does it when the car has been driven a short distance.
Hope that helps.......
