Civic or Accord?

If the CEL does not come on, it would be a faulty ECU.

Have you checked the PGM-FI main relay and ground circuit at thermostat housing?

Ye, if the ECU fuse is blown, you definitely won't be able to start. If a new fuse blows as well, you would have to check for shorting.

You need to check the controlling circuits.

Do not start replacing components until they have been tested and confirmed to be bad or a substitution for testing is required.

Get a test lamp and test the power coming out of the PGM-FI main relay to the fuel pump.

Is the CEL coming on now? It goes off after 2 seconds when ignition is initially turned ON?

If the CEL is not coming on when ignition switch is turned on, it indicates either the ECu is faulty or there is a problem with the wiring circuit. This would stop the fuel pump from working.

A bad PGM-FI main relay can cause such problems.

Do you mean fuel is not coming out of the fuel rail? If the fuel filter is clogged, you would have to replace it.
