Question about 1993 Honda Accord
I've read about the relay problem and suggested this to the mechanic. He says he swapped it out and opened mine up and it wasn't the relay. It was a cool day today. When I had my problem, I could not get it to start, then tried in the evening and started right up. Concluded it was the fuel pump, saying "weak fuel pressure intermittently" and when hot, it's dying out. Almost 600. repair vs. the relay... how likely is it that it's the fuel pump and not the simple repair?
I had that problem on my '91 accord and, yes, it was the main fuel relay. If you search the Internet you will find some 'hits' that talk about the problem. It is not so much a Honda problem as an electronic component problem. I fixed my problem when I re-soldered the contacts on that relay. The solder gets cracked from expanding and contracting from temp changes inside the car over time. I could have replaced the relay for $50-$70 at the parts store for a new one. I chose to attempt to fix mine and did. The cracks are almost microscopic. I was real happy when it worked. It is a frustrating problem as you know.

Sounds like the fuel pump is acting up. $600.00??? I think you really should do some shopping. It's not that hard to replace a fuel pump on your car.
