Customer Question

I have a 200 Acura RL 3.5
The other day, it died while driving. After a few minutes of trying, it finally started. Later in the day, it started fine. I drove it about 3 miles and stopped at the store. When i came out, it wouldnt start and hasnt started since. I pulled out the fuel pump, it works fine on my work bench. I replaced the main relay under the dash and the relay by the fuel pump. I put a test light on the fuel pump plug and have no power. What do you suggest?

No luck. Still no power to the fuel pump. Haven't spent much time on it. Going to work in it some more Saturday

you're going to have to check continuity of the wiring from the pump to the pump relay and then form the pump relay to the main relay. check fuse 22 also. then check the ground for the pump.
