Question about 1993 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

Fuel pump relay

I have a 1993 Honday Prelude. The fuel pump fuse keeps burning. I replaced the fuel pump and the problem continues. Sometimes the engine stumbles. Could it be the fuel pump relay? I know the relay also is connected to the PGM-FI.

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.

There should be a fuel pump fuse or relay under the engine hood that can be replaced and you could also have an emergency fuel cutoff switch that may have activated which would require being reset if you struck a ditch or something with the car before the problem started.

1997 Gmc yukon fuel relay switch continues to burn out. Replaced fuel pump twice and also took it the dealer but no solutions. Truck runs fine for sometimes weeks but the problem continues.

I would have to check the fuel pump with a scope to look at the pattern and check the amps it is drawing . the grounds need to be checked and the pcm checked and reflashed. on the fuel system that would affect the fuel pump and relay to where it would burn it out is grounds , pcm , fuel pump , fuel pump relay. so you should convince them to replace the fuel pump and fuel pump relay under warranty and replace the pcm . and get a diagram and check all grounds. If the pcm is damaged and the current has been affected and instead of say a 5 volt or 2 volt signal it now has a 13.5 volt signal or if a ground is out then the temp of the relay will keep rising non energized a relay is about 99 energized it is around 140 you can check to see how hot that relay is getting. and if i remember correctly you want the pcm drivers checked.

My 1993 Honda prelude has problems starting in the cold weather. We have replaced the relay like suggested by their mechanic but still no luck. We have had to jumper the wires and that is the only reason...

Try to start with a less expensive procedure. In addition to relay I would check the spark plugs, wiring set and distributor cap. Also coolant temperature sensor can be a problem. Try to warm up the endine block of car with dry heat (hair fan or heat gun, but gently). Sometimes it helps. If it works problem is spurk plugs, distributor cap or coolant sensor. Also would be usefull to chek the fuel filter.
But first for cold weather sometimes it worthy to use the injector cleaner/or octane buster and better fuel which evaporates better and less viscouse motor oil. And of course check the battery.
Good Luck
