    I have changed the main relay and it is still not the solution.Now maybe you can tell me why the Voltage Transister in the ECU keeps burning out.I found this out because I bought another ECU and The Car went on like normal.So here I think every thing is OK! but no three days later again the cars cuts out on me.This time I open the ECU and there it is a burnt out Voltage Transistor.If you have a solution for that.I would greatly apreciate it thanks.OH! just I case I have chaged out the Transmission ECU also which could be one of the causes.But still it happens.Help I am having more and more problems getting to work so far I have made it but my rides are either going into the hospital or vacation.So!!!!! please help

I have a 1992 accord and will not start

Posted on Sep 25, 2009


The problem is with the main relay that controls the ignition system and the fuel pump. Over time the circuit board in the main relay cracks from drying out. the main relay is located under the instrument panel on the left side of the steering wheel, approximately behind the coin tray.

the problem is that when the car is parked in the sun or on days with a high outside temperature the interior temperature of the car rises high enough to cause the cracks in the circuit board for the relay to open. When the cracks open up you lose contact in the circuits that go through that part of the board. depending on where the cracks are you either lose the fuel pump or the spark when this happens. So the engine will crank like crazy but not start.

if you leave the doors of the car open eventually the interior temps will drop and the circuit board will contract and the circuits will make contact again to allow you to start the car.

The main relay is only available from Honda dealers. The part is about $50.

I pulled the head on my 92 Honda Accord EX so I could replace some damaged exhaust valves. After reassembling the engine and components the engine wouldn't start. It cranks and cranks but doesn't get any...

Are you sure that there is no spark, have you checked with a timing light? Are the wires on the coil connected correctly? Is the ignition module plugged in correctly and are all the wires on the distributor tight and correctly located? Try another ignition module from a system that is known to be working.
