This issue may be the battery, I had a 87 Accord with the same issue and some of the Honda models have a battery that uses water mixed with acid and the water level may be off. Sorry but that answer is full of crap. Depens, when you start it does it run fine, is the little battery light on , in the instrument cluster? if so your alternator is not charging. thus the car is running off the battery til it does not have enough power to support the ecu. But it seems diff in this case. Could be a vary, for one is there a check engine light? The distributor may and possibly be malfunctioning, on warm up its fine but when its near operating temp the dist will adjust the timing a bit , but it may just shut out, (internal ignition control module) can you explain more to what its doing? Kongkit Raggan-Supatanampon There was an ignition-switch recall for this model. A faulty ignition switch could cause either a failure of the starting systems or could cause the loss of spark and/or fuel pressure, both of which are vital, obviously. When the car will not start, does the engine turn-over? If so, then it's a loss of spark or fuel pressure. On Accords, the three compnents are the fuel injection main relay, the ignitor module, and the ignition switch. Listen carefully when you turn the ign switch to the ON position. You should hear a brief whirr that lasts for about 10 seconds or so. that is the in-tank fuel pump pressurizing the system. If there is no sound, then the ign switch/main relay/ fuel pump is suspect. If the problem happens ONLY on hot days (car parked in the sun) and not on cool days, then it's the under-dash fuel injection main relay.
