I can't get my 95 accord started, fuel pump refuses to turn on(recently dropped tank). I can't get voltage at the rear seat access panel. The same black/yellow wire has no voltage under my glove compartment... battery and main relay are fine. Any suggestions?
As other answer has said check all the fuses, honda has two fuse locations, under hood and under dash. Fuel pump relay can be bad, they may check ok but still be bad, take a test ligt and check to see if you have juice at the plug of the relay, if there is chances are the relay is bad, simple way of checking is running a jumper wire between the hot lead and the fuel pump lead, (its easier if you have two people because after you jump tthe leads have the other person listen for the fuel pump), if the fuel pump comes on the relay is bad, if the fuel pump doesn't come on its one of three things, fuse, ignition switch (as stated in other answer) or fuel pump,

A mechanic would check for voltage at the fuse, the EEC relay, and the fuel pump relay, then the pump. If the pump is running and no fuel gets to the filter, the pump is faulty or the screen in the tank.
Hello ririshrusso: My name is Roger and I will help you. The fuel pump on your car is located inside of the fuel tank. You must drop the fuel tank to gain access to the pump. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
my guess is there is a fuel pump in tank as there are in 95% of diesel motor vehicles. you may have just sucked out the existing fuel from the lines. the fuel pump can withstand high amounts of amperage and voltage so by hooking up wires wrong i dont think you burned up the pump but you may have wired it up wrongly, or you have forgot to put the o rings back inthe housing properly. or drop on in tank. check the fel system setup. Orings in place, wiring connected properly. if all else fails give the pump a hit and see if it will start.
I recently replaced the fuel pump on my 87 LXi. Drop the seat, and pull back the carpet from the trunk. You'll see two little round cover plates tarred to the floor right behind the seat back. Pry the driver side plate loose, and you'll see the cover for the fuel pump assembly underneath - it has a plug, a banjo bolted fuel line, and vent hose attached to it. Remove these, and remove 5 or 6 nuts with a 10mm socket, and lift the fuel pump assembly out, taking care to tilt it accordingly while lifting.
Before removing it though, take the plug loose and use a voltmeter to verify that you get 12vdc to the pump when the ignition is turned on. You should see the 12v for 2 seconds after the key is turned.
On both cars, check the fuel pump/guage harness connector under rear seat - the old fuel pump draws too much current and melts the connector causing poor conatct & voltage drop off. Easy to see usually, just cut the two fuel pump wires from either side of the connector and re-join with new crimp connectors, or solder joint.
