Turns, but turns to slowly to catch?
Turns, but doesn't fire?
Turns, tries to start but can't maintain it? Stumbles?
Not nearly enough information to help ya'. Use the above questions as a
guide but give a LOT more information about what your problem is.
FWIW. The reply to address is good, but I don't
check it unless I am expecting something. SOOOO,
Thanks for getting back to me... I think this would be "turns but doesn't
fire." I turn the key and it makes the cranking/turning noise, just won't
start until a few minutes later. I usually try a couple times and on about
the third or fourth effort it will decide to start. Sometimes I turn and it
doesn't hold, if that happens then it will really fight to start, but I
thought that was me not turning ithe key far enough and messing it up

sounds like the Main relay,a very common problem with Honda products. I
don't know where it's located on the Legend,my Integra has it under the
dash on the drivers side.It runs the fuel pump. solder joints in the relay
geet cracks and intermittent.
symptoms are;cranks and briefly starts,but dies and then cranks without
starting,then after 15-20 minutes,the car starts and runs normal.
gets worse in hot weather.
www.tegger.com has info on this,how to resolder the relay instead of buying
a new one for $50 or more,if you have those skills.
A resoldered relay will probably last longer than the original. The
factory solder was very thin.
Search google to find the 'smack the dash' solution so you wont' find
yourself stranded until you get it resoldered.
I had a similar starting problem on my 1993 Legend, and it was the
Main Relay, I found one on eBay for $35. It is located on the left
side of the stearing column, remove the panel, unscrew two bolts,
unhook and replace... That's it !!!
Then watch her purr again...
Oh BTW I have 170k on mine, my wife drives it and she refuses to drive
anything else, including my 99 Lexus LS... :-)
