My little 89 Honda Civic had been running fine... then suddenly a few times it felt like the fuel delivery was getting weak, then it'd perk back up.

I parked the car for a few days and drove my main car. I went back to the Honda after a 5-6 day hiatus - and it won't start. It turns over, but I can clearly not hear the fuel pump engaging.

I took it to my friend who is a mechanic and he says he tested the wires up to the pump and they are simply not getting juice. This guy works on older hotrods, so this little Honda isn't his thing. I was told by an guy that does work on Honda's that the "fuel pump relay" under the steering column may be the culprit.

Any advice that can be offered on this?

I'd appreciate any help!
