I just bought this car and for the first couple of days I've been very pleased as it has been running great but the third day it just died on me going home from work. After several minutes it will restart and again run smooth and steady for a few minutes but will then just die again, there is no hesitation or sputter when it shuts down like you would expect with a fuel problem but acts like the key has been turned off.

OK So maybe it's a fuel problem, I'll see what I can find out. Thanks

I've called three different parts houses and a Honda Dealership and supposedly there is not a fuel relay switch on the vehicle or at least available on either of their systems.

I've found the fuel pump relay on the car right with all the other electrical relays, sure enough someone has done a quickfix on it by crudely running a jump wire from the fuse block to the relay itself, I done a quickfix myself (temporarily) with a better jump wire and will try it for a bit to make sure but I think the problem has been solved, will update later when I know for sure. :-)


I put a new relay on it but that didn't fix anything, still have to run the jumper but I ran it more securely and the car is running great, guess that will have to do. Case Closed

I am no pro, but one will help for a small donation. You can go to an auto parts store and have them pull the codes on your car for free, but to me it sounds like your fuel relay switch, ther are fairly cheap and easy to change on most cars, but I have no idea where yours will be. However!- Do not go throwing money in your car changing out parts until you know what is wrong with it. My guess is the fuel relay, but I may be wrong.

I'm sorry ou have to do it like that. I will talk to a few gear-heads I know to see if I can find out some more info that may lead us to the root of your problem, but I am glad to hear it is fine for now. PS, instead of editing your post just reply to the last one, in this case mine.
