  • 1999 HONDA ACCORD
I have a 99 Accord that intermittenly dies. Last April we had the timing belt, distributor cap, ignition recall, and rotar button replaced. All summer we have had no problem, now that it is cold the problem has started again. We replaced the main assembly relay and the problem still exsits. There is no codes ever thrown so we are at a lost. Does anyone have any ideas?
Do you
have the same problem?

A wise mechanic passed this along and I ask you to take a check of the Electronic Fuel Injector relay. Located up under the dash usually and on the driver side.

We replaced the main relay is that the same as the electronic fuel injector relay? If so, that still did not solve our problem. We replaced the distributor Tuesday and it ran fine Wed and it started cutting out again yesterday. Does anyone have nay more ideas? It did this last winter and we never could find the problem and all summer the car has ran fine. Now it is cold again so we are at a lost. We had the ignition recall done in April, could it already have gone bad?

I doubt the main relay is the same as the EFI relay.

Today my husband started to leave work and the car would only idle. He said when you accelerate it would shut off. He pulled the fuel filter and fuel pump and that all looks brand new. He decided to spray them off with the pressure hose and it seemed to have ran fine for him to drive home. We still do not know what our problem is. When we call the honda dealership they tell us that the main relay is the same as the EFI relay. Please help us!

Has the ignition switch relay ever been replaced. (It's located on the inside of the car on the steering column) Mine had this problem and honda had a recall on the part, but mine had to be replaced a second time at around that mileage.
