Honda problem

Replace the "main relay" write down your VIN call the dealer, or very good parts store, and order the Main Relay. There is a good chance the dealer has it in stock. It is located under the dash behind the change drawer. Its a black or grey relay and has a # on it like RZ-0064  This is a very common intermittent problem.

Looking for the fuel pump relay or sensor

The Fuel pump relay is part of the EFI main relay and can not be replaced separately. The EFI main relay is located behind the dash, left of the steering wheel.

Car wont start

I had a problem with a 1991 Honda Accord and the fix was a weird one. My car would run fine and start fine if it was cold outside. If I left my car in the sun and the interior got hot, my car wouldn't start.

(Since you drove to San Diego this may be the problem)

I found out that if I left my windows open and let the inside of the car cool down, it would start. Strange.....

Apparently, there is a main relay box under the steering wheel that triggers the starter motor and fuel injection. In the Honda's made around 1991, the contacts in that box would expand and would not let the electricity flow.

I guess you can repair the relay box, but replacing it might be a better bet ($50). I took my car to three different mechanics before any of them had heard of this problem.

The fix was simple, but the problem was hard to diagnose.

Wont Start when its hot outside

Check out this link. I just type you a long paragraph on here but i don't think it took. Anyway, It was the main relay located under the steering wheel. Same thing was happening and the car cranks fine after replacing it. 25 dollar part.

Reduced power below 4000 RPM

The main relay also controls the transmission and will cause an intermittent interruption of power and indicates its going bad. about a $60.00 replacement cost. the relay is located under left side of dash.
