Default 1992 Accord 4-door EX intermittent no power to fuel pump

1992 Honda Accord EX 4-door, Canadian model

Intermittentantly won't start. Turns over all the time, just won't start.
Checked fuel pump, couldn't hear it running when key turned to "run"
position.
Check for voltage at Yellow wire on fuel pump, no power.
Turned key back and forth a few times, fuel pump got power, car started.
Kept turning key back and forth until couldn't hear fuel pump run, car
wouldn't start.

I want to check the Fuel Pump Relay, I think I can see it under the dash,
but can't see how to get at it without removing the dash.

Any common issues that gives this symptom? Is there a fuel cut-off security
system in these cars? Where is the fuel pump relay and where is it located?

Steve

=========================

Steve,
With key on, smack the dash with your fist. . Pump will run, to get you
home from corner store. Replace or resolder Main Relay. Search this
group for 100 links to help.

Yeah but.......You'll never get
your solder joints to last like the mfr's. Vibration in your car will get
you right back to an open circuit at the most inopportune time.
Every body has their opinions, just like everyone has an a--hole, but I've
had my a--hole for over fifty years and thirty plus of them me and my
a--hole have been working on Honda's. Take it from experience. Good luck!

you sound like you have an ignition problem.an intermittant battery cable
can wreak all kinds of trouble.the neutral safety switch is another culprip
that can cause these weird problems.
