Having problems with your 2002 Honda Accord ?
I have a 2002 Honda Accord. Apparently I have a relay issue with the starter. Battery 12V check. Fuses ok. When I turn the key, and the relay engages which shuts down the nonessential systems prior to starting, I hear a "frying" sound behind the passenger side fuse panel and the power goes dead. No starter no radio no lights. Remove the key and wait a few minutes. I put the key back in and I have radio, lights, etc... Everything seems fine until I turn the key to the start position. So
Ok so that wasn't it. Three days later problem came back. Replaced battery cables. Problem goes away for another few days. Came back again and found what I think is finally it. Engine Cut Out Relay in the power distribution box. (of note the expert told me there were no relays in the ignition system) Although the local auto parts store's computer said they did not carry this relay, I took it in anyway and they matched it up with one off the shelf. $7.50 and I am running good as new. Hope this helps some of the rest of you. Also, the wiring schematic in the back of the Haynes manual was also an invaluable assist on this one.
Thanks to assistance from your expert, I replaced the ignition switch and problem solved.
