Acura integra not starting

Asked by Sep 04, 2017 at 03:03 AM about the 1997 Acura Integra GS Coupe FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my car wouldn't start a couple weeks ago. Would
crank but not turn over so I listens for the fuel pump
couldn't get hear it so I replaced it of course. Well I put the
new one in and the new one still wouldn't turn on. So I
replaced the main relay/fuelrelay. And the pump still
wouldn't turn on. So I got a test light tried testing the
wires to the fuel pump and it wasn't getting like power so I
figured that there was a grounding problem not allowing
the relay to open. The fuel pump ground goes through the
ecu so I thought maybe that was broken so I replaced the
ecu and still nothing. What's going on? It's a 1997 Acura
integra gs

You need to get to the fuel pump leads and make sure all the contacts are really, really clean. Mine (1994 Integra RS coupe) had the same issue and it was just a case of a dirty connector causing a ground issue.
