The fuel filter/fuel pump combo unit may have been damaged in the accident. The unit is located inside the fuel tank and can be accessed from under the back seat. This unit also hauses the fuel guage sending unit as well as the fuel pressure regulator. You will need a special spanner wrench to remove the retaining ring. The Honda part number for the spanner is 07AAA-50XA100. Be careful when you remove the unit from the fuel tank as the float arm and float are really fragile.

Good luck and God Bless.

    By the way, if the unit is damaged, it would most likely be classified as "Hidden Damage" by your insurance company, (or in this case the insurance company of the person who hit you) and they should pay for the repair. If they will not pay, have your insurance company abrogate against them.

I have a 2001 Honda Accord Lx. I am having

This is something you have to remove the door panel to before you can say what it is. But I don't advise a DIYer doing it because its a little tricky. I recommend taking it to a body shop . They do this stuff in their sleep let them deal with it. If you try it and mess up then you have no door lock. This is not a big repair.

You've bent something. It could be a rim or control arm or both. It could also be out of alignment. Take it to a shop and have it checked out. This is dangerous but repairable. Hope this helps.

Due to car accident the driver's side door doesn't work properly with the key, it does with the remote up to a point,the actual button doesn't go fully down. The car was taken to a locksmith where we told...

Something is bent and not getting full travel. Notify the insurace company that its not right, and insist that it be taken to the Honda dealer, so it can be fixed properly. Body shops only look for easy money and the adjuster is on the Ins Co. side, not yours, His job is to fix the car as cheaply as possible.

My 2001 Honda accord has a radio wont shut off!

If this is an aftermarket radio, they hooked it up wrong when they installed it. Either way, this is a wiring issue. Remove the radio and make sure the wiring harness is corrected before installing again. Good luck!

2006 Honda Accord won't turn over

Check the battery cables and make sure they are clean and are connected tightly to the battery; check the ground and make sure it has a good connection and is tight (it will be the black cable and is connected to your chassis by a bolt. Have your battery checked even though it is showing a green light; nothing is fail proof. Check your fuses and relays. If you can jump start it take it and have the starting and ignition system checked at a shop or auto parts store. A bad alternator will drain your battery.
