Default My car won't start when it's HOT outside!!??

I left my house this morning when it was cool outside. Didn't have a problem. This afternoon though when the temperature was at it's peak the car was turning but not starting. Last summer it happened sometimes but I would wait a few minutes and it would start after. Would I need a tune up? Thanks

Most likely the Main Relay, easy fix. Search it for a guide.

only works *sometimes*. Mine had the same problem.

I found if i sat there cycling the key to on / off / on / off eventually it would work, but then i had to change my ign switch. so, replace the relay, lol.

It is definetly the main relay. Detailed problems and a fix can be found here: http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/faq.html#startrun

Soldering is very easy on this! I've done mine, and no longer have problems! Give it a shot!!!
