2010 Odyssey fuel pump fuse keeps blowing right when

2010 Odyssey fuel pump...

2010 Odyssey fuel pump fuse keeps blowing right when ignition is turned on

Mechanic's Assistant: Do all the fuses have the correct amperage for the circuits they're in?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Odyssey yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to fix myself. I replaced the fuse a couple times and pulled up rear carpet and disconnected the fuel pump and then tried again with fuel pump disconnected and it still blew

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Think thats it

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

This means the yellow/green wire that goes from fuel pump to PGM FI #2 relay is shorted. You will need to find wire to find short cut wire and run a new wire between fuel pump and relay. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

Could the relay itself be shorting or is it just that wire?

It is possible the relay but very unlikely. Remove relay to see if it stops blowing, if so swap relay with another one to see if it blows again, if so you need to replace the wire. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
ok. I'll start hunting down the wire.

Running a new wire would probably be easiest option if there is not damage within 2-3 feet of fuel pump wiring or within 2-3 feet of fuse box wiring. Let me know if you run into questions, you can reply to this answer at any time without additional fees. Thanks.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
have you seen this before?

Definitely looks like some type of rodent, I'm happy to hear problem was found. I'd stick some mothballs in area to keep them away in future. I haven't seen it on this specific vehicle but have on many others.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

Or you can buy rodent repellent tape

Cool thx, definitely getting the tape. I have never heard of this before, but obviously its a legit issue, I hope they didn't get the fuel lines

I'd avoid parking in grassy areas, that is about the most you can do without getting actual repellent.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I assume you'd recommend that I check the rest of the wires underneath that I can get to and see?

May as well, especially in same area where you found that damage.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
hey Dan, How long is that section of wire the mice chewed up? Im trying to order the replacement (I could just splice the wires, but I did a search and the only thing the popped up looked like about a three foot section. I attached a picture, is this the part I need?

I do not have that information available but I'd agree that it looks about 2-3 feet. Based on picture I cannot tell if that is the part you need, you will need to find connectors on each end of wire and see if it has it's own little section or not. If not then I'd just splice in new wires. Let me know how it goes, thanks.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Ok cool. I'll no for sure once I drop the tank. Ill keep you posted

Sounds good, let me know. Thanks.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Looks like I may get out of having to drop the tank! There is a short wire harness about 2 feet. Here is the other end. I tried to get the part number in focus for you since you haven't done this particular model, maybe it will help if you get this issue again. It runs from the fuel pump and connects to the middle section of a 3 section connector that sits ontop of a support in front of the drivers side rear wheel

Thanks for update, looks like you lucked out that it happened to be on the one small section of replaceable wiring.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Yeah. I am glad for that, I did notice they chewed through what looks like a small 1/4 inch vent tube from tank to a fitting on the frame below the fill tube. Im not too worried about that one, the rest of the lines look good

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
