    Call Honda first with the VIN number of your car and see if there is a recall on the electrical portion of the ignition switch on your car. I have seen the main relay/fuel pump relay behind the dash fail pretty frequently but have also seen the ignition coil and igniter fail as well.

    i have a 92 honda accord lx, automatic tranny and i had the same problem. my car will not start during hot day and specially during short trips. i changed my main relay and it never did that again. id say replace your main relay because its a common problem with these accords
