    A friend of mine's 94 accord isn't getting fuel. I just want to know if it is the main relay or fuel pump. If the main relay was bad it wouldnt click at all would it? If it does click but i dont here the fuel pump then it would be the fuel pump right? Is there anything else i could check for or measure with a voltmeter to see if it was the fuel pump?

    thanks

    get a fuel pressure tester...put it on top of the fuel filter under the hood...thats bout your best bet....if it doesn't start sometimes like stalls when you just got out of the car or something...then its probably your main relay

    If the solder's are cracked then the ecu and fuel pump arent getting power, you can try to solder the main relay if you are good enough or find someone to do it.
