I would check the ignition switch. With a test light, check the small wire going to the solenoid for power when someone turns the key to the starting position. If you aren't getting power to that terminal on the starter, the ignition switch is not sending power to the solenoid.

1990 Honda prelude is not getting fuel

If the starter is not turning over; i.e., clicking sound and not turning, you have a starting/high tension circuit problem. (Check the accessory belts too!) Forget about the fuel issue. Check your battery, to include the GROUND connection to the frame. Also, check your starter and its GROUND connection to the frame. Clean the ground connections with sand paper or a wire brush, if they are rusted/dirty. Have a friend with booster cables, attempt to jump your car to a start. If it starts, you are certain its the battery (buy new) or starter (just buy a rebuilt one or have it rebuilt by someone you trust... sometimes only a starter solenoid or diode (newer type) is required). If your high tension circuit is okay then it could be the fuel pump relay or simply just the FUSE. Check the fuse panel first and then unplug the relay and give it a visual inspection... if any terminal looks corroded or in doubt, replace it. Otherwise, its the fuel pump. Just get a new one and be done with it. Bosch Aftermarket should have a replacement fuel pump for your car. Avoid cheap parts, if you can as a fuel pump is a critical component. If you need a battery, A rebranded Yuasa is the OEM for most Asian cars like Honda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Toyota; however, Exide and DELCO make excellent batteries for most cars. Car batteries only last 4 years or so; so don't believe the sales hype. Question? Did you disconnect the fuel line and then crank it over when you stated there was no fuel coming out of the fuel line? If you plan on keeping the car, a good buy is the Haynes Repair manual for your car. You can buy it on-line.

2007 chevy cobalt ls won't start battery good starter good turn key nothing no click nothing all lites work on dash and radio works jumped starter with screwdriver turns. Over but won't start...

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

1990 geo storm wont start, no fuel, no stored codes.

can you hear the fuel pump when you turn the ignition key to start position??( you should hear it start then stop after few sec.) If not, this could be the fuel pump fuse,some bad contact in the wiring of the fuel pump or the worst case the computer.but if you do,unplug your main fuel line to the injector turn the switch to start position again to see if you have some fuel coming out.if not this could be the fuel filter or the fuel pressure switch! hope this will help you...lipak!..

2002 Chrysler Sebring Convert wont turnover

If you're not hearing a click from the starter check for a starter relay. May be burned out! DO you hear the fuel pump kick in when you turn the key on? If not something might have triggered your security system and locked you out!
