Question about 1991 Honda Accord
I love my '91 Accord, but this problem is such a pain in the ***. A few other people have posted similar problems, and the key solution seems to be wait about ten min. or so and it will start up again. With my car, it ranges between 10 min and up to three hours before it will start. Seems to happen on hot, muggy days - condensation issue? A couple of things that have worked for me in the past, (but sometimes do not work):
- pull the ECU fuse in the fuse box under the hood, then put back in
- put car in neutral and roll a few yards
- keep it parked in the shade, if possible
Really though, I have no idea what the problem is at the core. Humidity? Short? Static electricity build up? Faulty sensor? Temperature issues?
Someone please give me a proper answer!
Honda has a long history of ignition distributor issues, heat play a major role in these delecate components, in older vehicles they get hot and the circuitry inside failes and after a wait period the vehicle will start again this happens to many cars, nissan, older Gm ,ford, Replacing the distributor has solved this problem for many honda owners and I believe you e also having this very same problem.
If this information is helpful to you please give me a fixya rating and if you find you need additional help do not hesitate to contat me i will do all I can to help.
