    9 months ago our 2004 Accord 2.2 cdti would not start. There was no
    warning but the next day it started. It ran ok for a week or so and
    then would not start again. The management system said it was the high
    pressure fuel sensor. This was changed and the car started but when we
    went to collect it it wouldn’t start until the fault (same one) was
    cleared from the memory. It ran for another week or so and then cut
    out while it was being driven. Back to the main dealer who were
    baffled but in the end they reprogrammed the management system. It was
    fine for about 5 months and then one day it cut out again. This time
    it did start again and after we had started it 3 times the management
    light went out and it ran ok for another month or so and then cut out
    again. The memory shows the same fault as before and the garage
    haven’t got a clue what to do. Can anyone please help?

    you need to find another dealer that is competent. seriously. any
    problem is fixable if someone with genuine interest that has the ability
    to use a scope or a meter is let loose on the job.

    getting back to your car, if i had to take a wild guess, i'd say it
    sounds like an electrical problem. with a gasoline honda, one of the
    prime suspects is the main relay. when the main relay goes, it sets all
    kinds of seemingly unrelated codes. there's no reason why your diesel
    honda shouldn't be exactly the same. go to tegger.com, look up the
    relay fault symptoms, how to look for the faulty soldering, and how to
    fix. also see if the climate symptoms match yours.
