Question about 1998 Honda Accord
I have a 98 honda accord that i think the car alarm will not let the car start.the engine will crank and turn over and run just long enough for me to take my hand off the key then the car alarm trips and kills the engine. then i have to take out key and disarm the alarm. when i try to start car agian the engine will crank but not start. after several times taking out key, arm, disarm alarm and try to start the car the engine sometimes will start. then runs fine. i can even turn off the car and start it again and have no problems. if i let the car set for 30 mins the problem starts all over again. the brand on the key faub for the alarm is UT automotive. the car came from the dealer with the alarm. not sure if its factory or after market. i think factory because the key faub has honda imprinted on it and the alarm box is integrated with the fuse box.
Try chaning the main relay. It is $60 at the dealer, cheaper on e-bay. There is also a way to repair the sodlering connection on it if you want to try and save some money. Check youtube for a video on how to rapir main relay on Honda's. Any questions, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
