1994 Honda Accord Ex: Car won't start sometimes because the check engine light
I'm having trouble figuring out what's goin on with my car. In the morning if it's hot or if it's been raining, my car won't start and the check engine light is on. But usually if it's been about 10 or 15min and my car is in the on position. U can here the fuel pump humming then the check engine light shuts off and my car is able to crank. I just want to find out what's wrong, Please help!

Ok, when my car sits for a while it's hard for it to start(check engine light is always on when it does this)....So usually when waiting I'm guessing around 10 to 15min....my check engine light shuts off(car is able to crank)...So all I'm trying to do is figure out why it doesn't crank when the check engine light is on. That's my only problem.
Starter doesn't click...It's crazy bcuz it's been cold and dry my car cranks right up...with no problems, but when it rains or weather is really hot because there's humidity where I stay at....it takes a while to get the motor to start right up.
I'm not sure if the 94 is the same as my sister's 91, but i noticed that the connector that plugs into the right side of the fuse panel (toward front of car) contains the wire for the starter... hers had a loose pin causing it to not crank sometimes when it was hot outside... i fixed it by squeezing the pin a little to make if fit tighter... might be something to check. Also aftermarket security systems can sometimes malfunction and make the car not crank...
