I have a '99 Odyssey that has a starting problem. Some days when I go to start the car, it will start, then the idle will go below 1000 rpm and then die. It will do this until you feather the gas for a minute or so, then when you shift it into drive (or reverse) and it is fine. Other days when you go to drive it it is fine, no issues at all. I went to drive it the other day and it started fine, I drove about a half and hour away, stopped for about 45 minutes and then when I went to start it again, I had the starting problem. After I repeated the process above, I was on my way. I am concerned that my wife will be out somewhere and not be able to get it started and be stranded. Could this be a main relay problem? I don't think the ignition switch is bad because I don't see any symptoms that I had when my ignition switch went bad in my Accord and I remember the symptoms. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
