I have a 1999 Honda accord ex v6 and it turns over but won't start I replaced the fuel pump and it still won't start please help???
Were you driving it and it went dead before you replaced the fuel pump? Or did you replace the fuel pump because you tried to crank it and it would not start?
I replaced it because it wouldn't star ...my friend said that was his best guess
Do you hear the fuel pump priming when you turn the key to the on position? It should stop priming at about the same time your check engine light goes out. If it's not priming I would check the main fuel relay. Accords tend to be known for them going bad.

Twenty to thirty dollars on line.
