      Check the main fuel injection pump relay and replace it as necessary, Honda common problem.
      In the event, if the problem still persists :
      Have an assistant to turn on the ignition switch, while you listen to the fuel pump running for 2 seconds from the uncap fuel tank filler. No noise, take the next step.
      Try giving the bottom of the fuel tank a few whacks with a flat piece of wood or a rubber mallet while another tries to start the engine. You have a 50/50 shot at getting the pump going again and the vehicle starting. if it starts as a result of the whack then it confirms the bad fuel pump.

      Note: Spray some aerosol starting fluid into the throttle (CAUTION: Starting Fluid is Extremely Flammable!). Then crank the engine. If the engine starts, you do NOT have an ignition problem

    We had battery checked by three people. Is good. Had alternator checked two times. Is good. We just had the starter replaced yesterday. I should note, we live in Las Vegas and some days at 115 degrees.

    My car has 78,000 miles on it. I've had it since January and have put about 5,000 of those miles on it myself. Recently my car has begun to feel hot after driving it for a while. Not the overheating kind of hot. There is plenty of fluid in the radiator and I have no ...

      Take a picture of that pipe from the cell phone and show it to local auto parts stores, they will search it in their system network and they will help you out.

    Radiator fan not coming on unless AC is on, then it overheats.
    I have a 2002 Honda Accord. Brand new radiator, hoses, and coolant reservoir. Out of no where the radiator fan only comes on when the AC is on and then it overheats. It seems to be normal when the AC is off, only neither of the fans are on.

      1. Above 199" Farenheith . or 90" Celsius., the radiator fan switch triggers the radiator fan motor, check that switch.

      2. There're two cooling fans, the radiator and the AC condenser motors, they both will activate when the AC is turn on. Check to see if they're working in the same time.

      The radiator fan is only working when I turn on the AC. When I turn the AC on and both fans start working, the car starts to overheat.

      Turn on the A/C, the engine will run hotter. Check the radiator fan switch and use the water from the garden hose to clean and remove the debris stuck in the radiator and AC condenser.

      I'm not so car savvy, but there was air in the the air bleed screw. Sorry if that doesn't make much sense.
      6/23/2014 CVO
      Air pockets trapped in the cooling system can cause the engine to overheat. Some cooling systems have air bleed valves built into the system to aid in the removal of air pockets. Advice: For many cooling systems, the method of removing air pockets is to start the engine and allow it to run with the radiator cap off or loose until all the air escapes from the neck of the radiator. For some systems this method is not sufficient, and the manufacturer has installed air bleed valves. It makes sense.
