1990-93 Honda Accords
I have a 1990 Honda Accord EX that has been giving me grief for months. The car would not start after running for a short travel and my transmission would not shift properly when my S light would flash after the non-starting spell. I replaced the ignition coil twice thinking that's what it was Wll after experiencing a complete shut down while I was driving, that forced me to take a look at the ECU. I talked to a few people and they said it wouldn't be the ECU if my gauges shut down while I was driving, which by the way was key to this problem. My solution was resolved by replacing the ignition switch(shut down while driving) and the main relay(non-start after short drives. Seeems the relay had a contact problem which will not send power to the ECU which is the controller for the fuel injectors and spark.
