    The "S" light is the car throwing an ECU or TCU code. To check this,
    there is a two prong connector behind the passenger side kick panel
    (mine is blue). You must remove, or pull back the panel, find the
    connector, and jumper the two pins with a paper clip, and then turn
    the key to the power on position (do not start). You will get a series
    of flashes from the "S" light. A long flash counts for 10, a short
    flash counts for 1. for example, one Long flash followed by seven
    short flashes is a code 17 commonly showing Vehicle Speed Sensor
    which was my problem. Use google, or a Haynes or Chiltons manual to
    match the code to the problem. Keep in mind it may be multiple

    The power not coming on the way you are describing sounds a lot like
    the main power relay, or so I have heard. I haven't had to change
    mine, but have heard of several people describing the same thing. You
    may want to Google "91 Accord Main Relay" and look over some of the
    results to see if any of the symptoms people mention under starting
    problems match up. From what I've read, failure of the main relay is
    fairly common in 90 - 93 Accords. You can Also get good information on
    how to change it as well.

    Most likely your problem is the main/fuel pump relay. Located on the
    left side of the dash above the cruise control ecu. Usually the relay
    will act up
    when the vehicle is hot inside

    Or you can open up the relay and resolder it,and save yourself $50;see
    www.tegger.com for more info. It's easy.

    (the relay problem is cracked solder joints)
