Main relay comes to mind when you say the cabin was really hot.

Some have bad solder joints, if you know how to solder it's easy to fix them.

If the main relay was bad, the starter would still turn over the engine. The main relay switches the fuel pump (among other things) so it wouldn't get any fuel.

It's a little weak about exactly where to find it, but Honda always seems to put the main relay sorta above thedriver'sleft kickpanel.

Main relay is the problem. I had it happen to my 90. If you it happens and you are in a pinch, turn the car on and crank the engine and at the same time pop the underside of the dash with your palm, sometime that will switch the relay to get it going. I bought a new one from Honda because if happened to my wife and lets just say she wasn't happy. I think it was like $135bucks from Honda though.
