Honda Accord Sedan 1999 Problems

My Honda Accord sedan 1999 with 173K miles has problems. After its warmed up after a normal drive, it won't start without me pressing hard on the gas pedal. The dashboard lights flicker like there was some sort of electrical malfunction. Sometimes it happens in traffic. When it does, it is usually when I'm stopped at a light, and getting ready to make a turn. But when it happens while I'm moving, the car jerks forward suddenly and the RPM drops to zero, but seems to recover a split second afterwards and the engine doesn't die.

How to identify a bad main relay on a Honda (PGM-FI)
This is a 1999 Honda Accord with an intermittent no start complaint. Other symptoms include: stalling, long crank times, surging, bucking, poor transmission shifting. Some quick work with the test light allowed me to zero in on a PGM-FI main relay issue, which was confirmed by a visual inspection on the relay board itself. If you can forgive my soldering work, done through a tiny video camera screen, then you can get an idea of how to repair these relays quickly and easily. Don’t forget to check the Related Videos for a follow up video, detailing the operation of the PGM-FI relay.

Since I had this RL in my shop that had a check engine light AND an ABS light I thought it was a perfect opportunity to put this video together. I get asked all the time about my 'special tool' and it's really nothing more than a Honda 2 pin connector with the input wires soldered together. These connectors might be harder to find than you think but if you run across a junk honda and one of these is on the harness grab it. Even if you don't have the tool a paper clip or piece of wire will do the exact same thing so don't sweat it if you don't have the tool because shorting the connector is all you need to do. I hope you find this video helpful.
