I had a similar problem with my 1990 honda accord coupe 2.0Si
in Japan. Find your fuel pump relay/main relay and tap it with your finger with the ignition on. If your ckeck engine light goes out when you do this, then you need to replace it. After tapping it, you should be able to start it. Another test is to listen to your fuel pump when you turn on the ignition. The fuel pump will turn on for a few seconds then turn off. If you do not here this, then it is your fuel pump relay/main relay! Also check your fuel pump fuse.
Make sure your spark plugs is in good condition. Lots of carbon buildup makes the engine hard to start!

I betting: Main Relay

Not worth the hassle to troubleshoot, just pull the lower dash and change it.

Yeah replace the main relay first. Then if that doesn't work troubleshoot because to trouble shoot if it is the main relay is a real hassle. you need a test light and also you need to get to your fuel pump which is a pain.


But it does sound like the main relay.

Main relay isn't expensive nor is it difficult to replace if you are handy with a socket set.
