Question about 1986 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Fuel pump I have a 1986 Honda Accord, the problem is the fuel pump doesnt run. I believe it may be the relay switch or the fuse but im not sure. its my first car. Normally when i would turn on the car to ACC you could hear the fuel pump running which my mom told me not to keep it on ACC so it didnt back up gas. But really i have no idea what im doing. Everyone else is telling me what it could be. ANY OTHER OPTIONS I WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

You can run an electric pump under the body of the car and it will bypass the one in the tank and the relay on the old one.

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1986 honda prelude 2.0 si

Not a single person answered your question, they all told you an answer that didn't relate to your question. Anyways the relays for your fuel pump are under your dash behind the fuse box.

Looking for location of fuel pump relay switch on a 1994 Honda Accord LX


Check for a 15A Fuse labeled FUEL PUMP on the cabin Fuse Box located in the front seating area, driver side, under dash, behind kick panel.

The diagram shows the Main PCM relay controlling the Fuel Pump, but it wont hurt to check the cabin fuse box under hood, passenger side, rear side of strut tower, mounted in fuse/relay box on firewall

No power to fuel pump

have you tested for main power to the fuel pump relay and checked the main fuse???
this is a very common honda fault over in newzealand where im from..having owned a few myself i have come accross, this generally the relay though.. but if you have a good fuse supplying power to relay its the relay or wiring..if not , trace from fusebox back to ecu by passengers foot well....i cant quite remember what pin number is the fuel power but i know it only runs piggy back to ecu so ecu doesnt control it ... try this if no luck try auto sparky

88 Honda Accord: No power to fuel pump.Ignition good.

Use a muiltimeter to seek out the short or break in the power side of the dc circuit. Clearly the power side from the pump back to the ignition is the issue. An alternate method would be to run a fresh lead from switch to pump. Bypassing the old one. Severe it at both ends and you should be set.

Im looking for the fuse for the fuel pump

It's in the fuse panel next to the battery. They use the EFI relay. Pull the relay and check for power. It probably works but you can switch it with one of the (fan I think) relays that is the same.

you need to put a test light on the fuel pump and make sure you are loosing power when this happens, it could be the main relay those are common im not sure if this year have a differant style as the newer cars but either way it could be failing you need to check the fuel pump relay when this happen also for power and ground if that is not the problem your ignition switch may be faulty try wiggleing it to recreate the promblem please rate -jeff
