"Checked"? Or replaced?

The main relay controls power to the ECU in addition to the fuel pump. Bad main relay = no fuel injection.

Actually the PGM-FI Main Relay supplies power to the fuel pump, [fuel pump relay] the fuel injectors, [injector relay] and power to a few engine valve/solenoids and a 12V+ "signal" to the ECU/ECM, [injector relay] although the result is the same, "Bad main relay = no fuel injection"

The PGM-FI Main Relay is a common problem on Honda/Acura but in many cases, easly fixed...
