Aftermarket catalytic converters, air/fuel sensors and lambda sensors are junk. Replace with OE Honda parts. If there are no engine misfires the OE catalyst will last a long time.

Either there is a voltage drop in the starting circuit from the battery to the starter or the battery is junk. If the voltage drops below about 10 volts when cranking the electronics get goofy.

I recommend a OE Honda sensor. Cheap sensors are not cheap after you buy them and then have to replace them because they don't work correctly. You end up buying 2 instead of one. How cheap is it then?
