Default 98 honda accord ECM failure code when car not starting.?

Out of the blue my car didnt start its 4 Cylinder Vtec 2.3 LT EX. One morning the car the car started funny as if my battery were low. I did have a weak battery at the moment so i thought nothing if it. The check engine light comes on and wont turn off. i get to my destination i turn the car off. I come back it wont start. It cranks and cranks. I put it on a tester it gave me the code p1607. Ecm/pcm failure. I know or atleast i know its not that because i disconnected my battery To give it a charge just to have it charged. When I reconnected it I felt like trying to start the car up and it did, It fired up. No troubles. 2 times it started good. Then same thing, cranks and cranks. I disconnect the battery and it starts. I read online it could be the main relay. It fits the description of a bad relay. I go to open it up and the soldering joints are good. My question is now what? I cant afford an inspection at this moment and it looks like its something i can fix Just need help finding it.

It sounds like your battery isn't holding a charge. Try a friends battery, and turn your car off and on a few times, if it starts everytime, you know your issue, and if it does nothing you didn't spend a dime.
