Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid Just Answer.

I have been servicing only Honda/Acura vehicles for nearly 10 years so I know the brand well. I would replace the Main Fuel Relay (also known as the PGM-FI relay). This part commonly fails and causes the problem you have. The relay supplies power to the Immobilizer Control Unit (which is the unit that is blinking the green key light), among other fuel related parts of the system. I have replaced countless numbers of these relays among nearly all Honda/Acura models. You can purchase this relay at most aftermarket parts stores such as Advance Auto and they typically have this part stocked and ready for purchase. It should run around $60.00. I will post a picture of the relay location. If you have any more questions about this just let me know. Thanks!

You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there aren't additional charges for posting to this thread after you rate so we can keep chatting. Thanks
