If it cranks and will not start there are a couple of thing to check. The first is to make sure you really have a problem. Get a gas can and add fuel to the vehicle. Even if you are certain you are not out of fuel, gas gauges have been known to fail and I have had it solve what I was sure was a real problem.

In the summer, the interior of the car gets very hot if you have the windows rolled up and that will cause the fuel relay to fail. If you roll down the windows and wait awhile, I found that the car will start. If that is the case, you have a fuel relay problem. The relay is located under the dash on the driver's side and if you do a search on the internet you can find a diagram for the one that you have. It is a plug in repair, but it is a little hard to change because you have to put your head under the dash to change it.

If it will not start after the interior has cooled off, chances are it is not the relay. If the car cranks and appears to start until you let off the key and then dies, it is probably an ignition switch. An Ignition switch for your Civic can be changed out by taking apart the plastic around the steering column and by removing a couple of bolts, it is a plug-in repair.

If either of these do not fix the problem, then remove a spark plug and verify that you have a good spark. If there is no spark, the ignition module might need to be replaced.

Hope that this helps

1990 honda wont start or crank, the lights dont come on, head or inside the car


The distributor in the hondas has a function of also engaging the coil to create spark. No spark = no fire. Perhaps take a plug out, leave the lead on, hold it with INSULATED pliers against a solid metal part of the engine and get someone to crank the engine over.

If the plug sparks - coil and firing switch OK. If no spark, check coil first - remove main + feed lead from coil terminals and check on a meter for power with key on but NO motor cranking. No power = faulty distributor/firing switch.No other ideas sorry!

If it won't turn over you may want to check Battery cables for tightness and/or corrosion Starter solenoid Neutral or clutch safety switch

Sounds like the pgmfi relay is going out. This is a common problem with these cars. They get hot and dont want to work, they cool off and everything is ok.

1990 Honda Accord just quit while driving. How do


You should be able to remove some 10 mm bolts from the timing belt cover and pry the cover out of the way enough to see the timing belt. Have an assistant crank the engine and look for movement of the belt. If you cannot get the cover off, remove the valve cover and look for movement. Don't crank the engine too long with the valve cover off, as you make make an oily mess, especially if the engine fires and starts.
