all fuses are good It started after my grand daughter had a emergency stop.She made it home turned car of and has not started since. It wasnet getting fuel to the fuel rail so we nreplaced fuel pump. we put a new fuel relay in and turned ignition on and relay didn't kick in so we jumped it then fuel pump would run. however car wouldn't start so we checked for spark and had none

Thank you

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I was wondering if maybe it has somekind of reset because of the stop she made.

No, there is no reset on the vehicle from the factory. Unless of course there is an aftermarket alarm or security system installed on the vehicle. However, It sounds like the PCM or main engine computer is not powered up so of course the engine will not start. You will need to verify all powers and grounds going into the computer with the key on This includes all powers from all fuses, ignition switch and fusible links. It could simply be a wiring issue preventing the PCM from powering up. However, if all checks out good going into the PCM, the PCM is likely at fault and will need to be replaced.

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
