Mine turned out to be dry solder bonds on the main relay, applied some new solder and problem fixed!

I have several extra ignition switches if any one needs one. I have them on Ebay right now for $28 free shipping. I can get damn near anything for a type one so let me know.

1992 Acura Legend cranks/won't start

After driving approx 5 miles I noticed steam coming from under the hood. Drove the car home and let it cool over night and the next morning cranked the car to find the problem. Found a busted heater hose and replaced it. When attempting to crank the car again it would turn over rapidly but not attempt to start. Read this thread and checked for loose vacuum lines, fuses etc as suggested but found nothing wrong. This is the first time in the 14 years I have owned the car that it would not start. What could I have done to cause this problem? I am a novice mechanic (very novice) so I had the car towed to a repair shop. The owner/mechanic said there was no spark to the plugs nor current to the fuel pump but he cannot find the problem. He has had the car over a week and still can't diagnose the problem. It seems odd to me that an experienced mechanic cannot find the problem in this length of time. What do you guys think? Also, in the event I have to have the car towed back to my house is there a reset switch that needs to be reset in the event the car gets too hot? I know it's most likely a dumb question.

This is what has been happening to my old 93 LS ( I sold it yesterday with a BHG and apparently a faulty relay ) but by turning the key from Accessory 1 to On repeatedly the D4 light will eventually light up and presto the car fires right up.

A few times the car would not turn off. I had to make the block and then it turned off. (I guess she wasn't ready to go home). This issue hasn't happen in two months. Can't figure this one out. I pulled every fuse etc. and it just didn't want to quit.

I had a main relay problem. The D4 light wasn't coming on and there was no click from the relay, of course the car would turn but not fire. I put in a brand new relay and she fires up instantly every time and runs perfectly. One problem, D4 light never came back on. Any ideas? Runs and shifts perfectly.

I Need Some HELP, PLEASE!
okay, so i bought a 91 legend with a BHG and yesterday I finished the job and went to start the car up and it started right away. It was fine for about 10 seconds then it started to have a fluctuating idle like it did before repairing the HG. I am not sure if the car was doing this before because of the bad HG or other reason that still occurs, but anyways i went to rev the engine a little and it stalled and wouldnt start again. I tried to start it again today and it started right up and had the same problems as yesterday and stalled.
What should i check.
could vac hoses be hooked up wrong cause this?
cracked block?
bad sensors?
I am only 16 but I am very confident i put everything back together correctly with labels.
I have all my money invested and need to get this car running.
any advise or suggestions is very appreciated.
Thanks

I'm new to this site and I've been having a problem with my 94 legend ls, where it is cranking, turning over but not starting. I recently had it in the shop and had the fuel pump and main relay changed. I got the car back today and after getting home, I turned it off and tried starting it but the same problem again--cranking, turning over but no start. I would really appreciate any help I been immobile for about 1 week and its starting to get pricey. Thanks.

It will always help to check compression. I had 60 psi in my whole drivers side head and thought it was a bhg, once I took the heads off found out it was a warped block.

I'm thinking of just taking my Legend to Acura and giving them a piece of paper with all the issues written down...pay them for a diagnostics and just have them fix it all. I'm not real handy with DIY and ive never soldered a thing in my life lol. I wonder how much it would run me to have Acura dealership mech fix the main relay and speed sensor.....hmmm. probably an arm and a leg but i'd surely mess it up if i did it myself

So I showed up to my friends house and parked in his driveway, his driveway is at a slope. So when I tried to turn on the car, it wouldnt even crank for more than a second.. So we wait 20 minutes, thinking it was my new main relay gone bad. so his mom has to take her car out of the garage, so we push my car into the street. 5 minutes later i decide to try turnin the car again, and next thing I know, it turns on. Im guessing it might have somethin to do with the slope the car was in, the gas tank, and the fact that I only had less than 1/4 tank of gas. but im not so sure what it was. anyone have any ideas of what it couldve been?
