Delayed startup after changing transmission??

This one is a bit strainge..I changed the transmission (automatic) in a 94 Honda accord EX 4 cylinder and now it delays when starting. What I mean is if you stick the key in and try to start it normally it will just keep turning over. However if you wait about three seconds with the key in the ON posssition it will start right up like normal. Otherwise it drivers normally. I noticed the fuel pump isn't kicking on right away to prime the rail, but I didn't touch the fuel system when I changed the tranny out.

Transmission has the proper amount of OEM Honda fluid. CEL is on but I don't know how to check the codes on this OBD1 vehicle.

I am suspecting either a weak fuel pump or I missed something during installation. I double checked to make sure everything was plugged in properly on tranny.:confused:

Any help would be great, thanks.

Did you disconnect the battery? Maybe a bad connection.

I rerouted the battery cable and it stopped doing it.....that was just wierd. Anyways it's fixed now. Thanks for reply
