05 accord 3L it cranks but no start if i shoot starting

05 accord 3L it...

05 accord 3L it cranks but no start if i shoot starting fluid in intake it fires up then shuts off i put a new fuel pump in it and relay seems fine pump comes on for a few seconds when the key is turned on,i was trying to check for injector pulse with a testlight but light comes on and stays on for a few seconds after the key is off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

It is in park

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

Fuel pump replaced and it cycles like it should with key on,but no fuel to engine ,it will fire on starting fluid.

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

Was trying to test injector pulse ,removed plenum to get to injector wires and once i did the yellow/black wire has power all the time from when the key is turned on till 5 sec after key is off

Thanks
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
That c101 block on my car is behind the engine and near fire wall I seen something that resembled that harness connector I tested that because it looks like the same color wires that go to injectors and they test out the same way as the wires to injectors hot when key is turned on and they stay hot for a few seconds after key is shut off That looks like a spot made for a diagnostic tool to hook up to for injector pulse testing some of those wires on my car are cut and broken but I did not think it would be a problem being that the harness ends right there I will check that again in the morning thanks.

none of the wires should be cut. that's a joint connector which just sends the voltages to the injectors, coils and relay

I will double check in the morning the harness with those wires does not connect to anything it has a cap over it like it may be for a testing devise to plug into it thanks again Dennis

its not supposed to connect to anything its a feedback connector

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
