On my 89 Accord LX-i, I am having an issue where the car won't start on a warm start. I am thinking heat soak might be an issue. The starter is relatively new (less than 2 mos. old)
Is there anything you can think of?
I can't read the signature rules so MrBen deleted my signature.
If the interior of the car gets to hot the solder joints on the Main relay expand and lose their contact. Open all doors and windows let the interior cold down and then the solder contacts contract and you will be able to start the engine.
Replace the main relay.
There is a search feature in the header row of every page on this site. There is also a Google search feature on the homepage. I'd suggest you use it well in the future. The main relay is probably the most well known warm start issue with these cars and you asking questions that have been answered a million times already puts you in grave danger of being flamed.

Also if it is a warm engine start issue (meaning not hot outside but engine warm) that is generally a ECT (Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor.
Hot inside car= Main Relay
Warm engine but not hot inside car= ECT sensor
That is just basic info. And Honda dealer calls Engine Coolant Temperature sensor TW (Thermal Water) sensor. At parts store you ask for Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. Hope this helps.
warm start could also be the tw sensor.

sounds like main relay for sure. searching would of told ya that tho
