Question about 1999 Honda Accord
While waiting in a restaurant drivethru yesterday, the car started to choke like it was running out of gas, then just died. When I tried to restart it, it would turn over, but not run-- as if no gas is getting to the injectors. Is it the fuel pump? The car has just over 100K miles and a timing belt installed 7 months ago, so I don't think that's the problem.
First check your fuses if the fuses are good then have some one turn the key on while you listen at the rear of the car for the fuel pump to hum while it primes the system. if you dont hear any thing and the fuses are good you need to look under the drivers side of your dash for a black box that is bolted to the dash frame called the pgmfi relay. turn the key on and feel if it clicks if it doesnt this is more than likley your problem.I have worked on hondas for my local dealer for the past eight years and this is a very common failure on the accords,acura legends,and rls. the sauder joints on the back of the relays get hot from long term use and deteriorate through the years you could take the cover off the relay and repair these joints with some eetrical sauder but the relay is only eighty bucks and it is way easier to just replace not to mention knowing that the relay contacts are new
