Default 95 accord starting running issues.


It goes down to the harness which is attatched to ([email protected] pic)

The same set of wires that attatched to that.
Today is only day this has happened started up as normal but once I got .Down the road to a stop sign it stalled on me. Same thing happened again and only thing I've found is a uncapped/unplugged wire in the back right side of the engine compartment. Nothing new has happened. My fuse is okay for relY and relay is fine. Canhear fuel pump kick on.

The wire in the first photo looks like it belongs to the float switch in the brake fluid reservoir (judging only by the type of plug).

So... engine stalling is the actual problem? Did it start right back up? Start with difficulty? No-start?

It would just crank and turned over once and immediately died, then nothing but cranking. I need a quick fix at least I was thinking about getting seafoam some have spoke highly of in the morning or even some fuel system cleaner. I heRd cleaning out throttle body, or the airflow valve? I checked the main relay for soldering issues found none, is there something simple I'm missing????? I also heard it could be. The mass Air flow sensor? In that case so me and my fiance can get to our orientation and back tommorow couldn't I just unplug that And do the 12 miles there and 12 miles back tommorow? I remember in my 2001 grand Grand Prix I could run it without the mass ajrflisensor plugged in.... I need to remedy cheap as possible by 3pm at the latest tommorow plz help! I know shops can help but we spent the last of our tax check on this car and we have these jobs tommorow on lock, just need to get there to secure them! Plz help!!!!! Thanks!!

Your 1995 doesn't have an air mass-flow sensor.

That wire would be for the low-brake-fluid warning lamp, and won't cause any problem running the engine.

When it stalls & doesn't start up, you need to figure out if it's lacking fuel or lacking spark. One way to tell is spray some throttlebody cleaner in the intake to see if it begins firing for a few seconds. Then you can look for problems either with ignition/spark or with fuel delivery. (hearing the fuel pump running is good but doesn't prove that the injectors are firing)

I'd try shooting some starting fluid into the hose from the vacuum booster going to the intake manifold. If it starts and runs for a second or 2, then it's a fuel issue. I had this issue on my 97 Accord. On it, I found the injector resistor pack (shown in your pic above) wasn't getting 12 volts (it was only getting 4 volts). What I did to fix it was bring 12 volts to it, and it ran fine for the 2 years I owned. I've since sold that car though.
I believe it was the yellow wire I checked voltage on, and stripped some of the coating off to splice in a 12 volt feed (with key on). I actually tapped into the Main Relay for power to it. Just so you know, it took me a month and a half to find it.
