Default 1989 Accord LXI Starting problems

I have a 1989 Acoord Lxi that has been giving me some starting problems. Sometimes it will start and then there are days that it it won't. Luckily it is a manual and I can jump start it. I have already replaced the Battery and Starter (2nd one now). Anyone else have this problem and is there a possible solution?

So what happens on the days when it won't start? Need details to solve a
problem like this.

Does it ever run fine until you go into 7 Eleven, then it won't start
again? Cooling the interior will make it restart in that situation, or
just turn the key to position II and smack the dash with your fist . . .
You'll hear the fuel pump run for two seconds and the car will start.

Do a google.com search for honda main relay resolder. You need to remove
and resolder the relay, or replace it.

There's more at tegger.com too.

If it is cranking badly and always starts when you jump start it, the only
difference is that you are adding energy to the battery. It sounds like your
alternator is failing, and the vehicle year suggests the brushes are
probably worn out. See http://home.earthlink.net/~honda.lioness/id13.html
for a good treatment of that issue. You might get by with a *relatively*
cheap and easy fix.

Check out http://tegger.com/hondafaq/flatbattery.html and
http://tegger.com/hondafaq/altcharge.html to get a better understanding and
to avoid doing more serious damage to the alternator.
