its very common for the main relay that controls the fuel pump and ignition on that car to fail in hot weather. the main relay is located up under the driver's side of the instrument panel. it gets a lot of heat from the sunlight coming through the windshield and heating the dash panel. that causes the circuit board in the relay to expand and break contact. when that happens the relay goes open circuit and the fuel pump won't run or you'll lose spark to the spark plugs. (the main relay is actually two relays in one and depending on where the circuit board for the relay cracks you'll lose one or the other)there is almost a 100% failure rate on the original relays. if you've never replaced it, then I think you'll find the main relay to be the problem. the relays run about $45 at a honda dealer; you can probably replace it yourself if you're comfortable working under the dash. otherwise, add $ for installation.hope that helps
