Question about 1991 Honda Accord
My car sometimes will turn over but will not stay running. If you let it sit for 10 minutes, it will start right up. I was told it is the main relay switch. Is this an easy part to replace?
Yes i had the same thing happen to both my lx and ex 1990 accords. its easy to fix. im in CA and purchased the part from Honda for about $60 plus i found a coupon for 10% off on the local dealers website. Im pretty sure the part is only available thru the deal not kragen or pep boys. the main relay is located inside the cab down by the drivers left foot (pardon my lack of knowledge of names of all the car parts) what i did was lay down on floor board facing up and reached my right hand up into the space. attached to the wall is a box...this box will move ( i cant remeber if you push it up or needed to use 100mm socket and its above/behind that. you cant see it. if i remeber correctly...all you need is a 10mm socket. its 2 bolts to take off and you unplug it and plug in the new one and bolt it up. :) hope this helps.
