1992 Honda Accord no crank, Please help!

Asked by Jan 19, 2014 at 05:25 PM about the 1992 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So i recently purchased a 1992 Honda Accord, everything seemed fine with the car, i drove
it for about 20-30 miles then it ran out of gas. So i left the car, went to go get some gas,
came  back and put in a couple of gallons and it started right up again for me like it had
twice before, so i finished getting it to my house and i began cleaning the car up because it
was a real mess from the previous owner, he had a aftermarket cd player installed that was
connected to an amplifier and a sub woofer. i did not want the sub woofer so i began
removing it, i disconnected the ground that was going to it and then the power that was ran
from the battery, then all of the other wires. after i was done removing all of that i went to go
start the car because i was going to go pick up some supplies and its just dead. the dash
lights don't come on, it doesn't try to crank at all. I checked all of my fuses under the hood
and under the dash and the ones under the hood will light up with a test light and show that
their getting power with a DMM. but the ones under the dash will not, they are not getting any
power what so ever and that fuse box is the one containing the fuse for the ignition. so i have
pulled every one of the fuses and they are all good, i checked the ground on the fuse box and
it is good as well. my question is what supplies that fuse box with power? I don't understand
how disconnecting the amplifier would cause a problem, i even hooked it all back up and of
course that didn't change anything. If you know what the problem may be please help. I
checked all the grounds under the hood as well and there all ok. what could have changed in
such a short period of 30 minutes to starting and then not even trying to crank over?

Main power supply from the battery. It may have a mega fuse inline on the cable. Trace the wire from the fuse box back to the battery and you will find the problem.

Was you doing the removal of items with the doors open? If so you ran the battery down. Try to jump start your car. Or better yet have battery fully charged then start it. Does not take all that long to run down a battery with the doors left open.

I believe the fuel pump is crispy and melted....please check the continuity of the motor at the connector~....most guys who like that big bass have their brains rattled out...get rid of that bazooba~

researching....you either have the "kielbasa of fury" or the in tank pump....the in-tank pump will burn itself up if not given a quantity of fuel what keeps it cool~ the kielbasa may be okay to run dry~ test the continuity~ https://www.google.com/#q=1992+Honda+Accord+fuel+pump&tbm=shop
