Default Accord cranks, no start

Got home from dinner and had a message from our son in Columbus a
couple hours south of here. "Dad, my car (98 Accord, 100K) turns over,
but won't start.
I called him and directed him to Goggle main relay Tegger FAQ, and
talked him through the possibilities. After the sun went down the car
started right up. He will look for someone who knows how to fix the relay .
Many thanks to Tegger and all the good folks here at A.A.Honda!

------------------------------------

In the meantime, so he won't get stranded, tell him to put the key in
position II, and slam the driver's door or smack the dash on the left
side of the steering wheel. The relay will activate long enough to prime
the fuel system (he'll hear it run) and the engine will start when he
turns the key to START. Vibration will keep the relay sparking until he
shuts it off, or it may run perfect depending on the cabin temperature.

IMO this description of how the "smacking" temporarily
solves the problem is superior to past ones. I think
understanding the mechanism of this temporary solution helps
folks having the main relay problem.

I'm sold, anyway, speaking as someone who values clear
technical writing.
