    So...
    Drove my accord to work, no issues and no symptoms leading up to the no start. Clocked out of work and would not start. I have compression, have spark and crank but no fuel. So i changed the fuel pump today and still wont engage. Relay kicks in ,dash lights up and green key light does not blink when I crank the car. I have no idea besides that it might be some sort of wiring issue....?
    Any advice guys and gals?
    Thank you, much appreciated.
    P.S.
    I only replace pump and not assembly.
    98 EX 217k.
    Recently replaced at 200k:
    *timing belt
    *water pump
    *radiator
    *distributor
    *MAP sensor.
    CEL on for:
    Gas cap.

    I'd be leaning more towards the main relay based on what you're saying. Is the CEL illuminated with all the other lights when you turn the key to accessory ?

    Have you tried getting the car to start off starting fluid?

    Main relay work just fine; i recently re-soldered it.
    i have not tried to start it using starting fluid. I'll give that a try tomorrow since I'm stuck at work till 11pm.

    Does the fuel pump have power at the connector key on? Check with DVOM.

    yes. one connector pin is at 11.9v and the other around 5.2. All other pins do not have current.
    looks like the fuel pump is trying to prime, but wont; reason for this is that I removed the fuel lines that go to the pump assembly a few times and each time gas came out of them.
    im wondering if theres a clog somewhere or if I have a fuel rail fail.

    What is the fuel pressure at prime?

    Is there any flow at prime? Check for squirt at the return line off the FPR. Dsconnect the hose. Be ready. No smoking.

    My 01' has no filter to clog, does yours?

    Back probe an injector off the connector and see if they are firing. Or use noid lights.
