Main relay? Dizzy? Immobilizer?

I've got a '98 Accord 4 cylinder that's giving me trouble. First symptom of shittyness was the car dying while driving, about 90 seconds after starting it. It restarted after sitting for a minute. I got to my destination (about 10 minutes away) and it died a split second after it started (more like the engine fired once or twice and then died). I gave it a bit of gas while cranking and it started right up and ran great for about 24 hours. It died while cruising again this afternoon.

I'm thinking I'll start w/ the main relay and go from there. Anything else I should be checking?

Do you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key to the on pisition? Does the cel come on before or after it dies?

No CEL and no fuel pump. I did some more testing last night, and I'm thinking it's the ignition switch pigtail. They're prone to failure on the 98-02 Accord (there's even a recall), and while cranking the engine the brake light does not stay on, even w/ the hand brake up.

I think I'm gonna replace the pigtail and main relay tomorrow AM. I have to get into the same panel for both, and since I'm sure this car hasn't had the relay replaced I may as well do it.
