Q: Car won't start on a regular basis for 2 years now! on 1998 Honda Accord

My car will start then I will drive around the corner, turn off engine and it will not restart. I purchased 2 new batteries within 4 months with no resolution of the problem. I took the car to Honda dealer, they replaced the EGR, drilled & cleaned the intake ports, charged me for a throttle kit, EFI injector kit and checked battery, starter and charging sytem which checked out ok in Jan 2010. Replaced altenator in 2/06, replaced main relay in 8/03 and changed out the Ignition switch key recall in 6/04 as well as the Ignition Switch in 10/02. Oh I forgot-I also had timing belt, water pump, ps pump belt,and compressor belt changed in 4/09. They keep bugging me to replace broken motor mounts. Today the car doesn't start-dome light and wipers work great when the key is turned to Ac and I hear a quick click and slight hum for about 2 seconds. Remote works on it and jumped battery with no luck. Is it time for a new car or should I take it back to Benson Honda..HELP!

It could be the fuel system relay, you can buy a refurbed one off of ebay for about $40 and replace it yourself. It mainly becomes an issue when it's hot out and the solder separates. Might be worth a look.
