2003 Honda Pilot: 3.5L..fuel pump fuse is good.

Customer Question
I have a 2003 Honda...
I have a 2003 Honda Pilot 3.5L that has no fuel pressure. I replaced the fuel pump and it still has no fuel pressure. The fuel pump fuse is good. The red wire on the fuel pump connector while plugged in the pump has momentary power when the key is turned on but is lost after a second. With the connector disconnected from the pump the red wire maintains voltage with the key on and while cranking. I replaced the fuel pump a second time but no change. I hot wired the fuel pump and the pump works but the engine will not start. I have injector pulse.

have you inspected the main fuel relay at all. it is located on the under side of the dash. up by the steering column. it is a large 1''x3'' relay. this could very well be the issue.

also be sure to check that with key on you do not have green key light blinking on your dash meaning the immobilizer is kicking in, which if so you should try another known good key.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
