grantgga2: I don't think this is one you are going to want to try to change out.
It entails having to remove the left axle and part of the exhaust pipe to gain access to the starter. At that point, you have one bolt which goes in at the bottom from the starter side and bolts to the engine. The other bolt passes through the trans axle housing and bolts into the starter, pulling it up to the engine.

Acura Main Relay location and removal procedures.

  • Honda Civic/CRX/del Sol 1984-1995
  • 1986-89 INTEGRA
  • 1990-93 INTEGRA #39400-SH3-003 RELAY (RZ-0063)
  • 1986-90 LEGEND #39400-SH3-003 RELAY (RZ-0063) (RZ-0046)
  • 1991-93 LEGEND (rz-0105)
  • VIGOR (behind the left front kick panel)
The main relay is located behind left side of the dash and above and behind the fusebox and above the hood release. The First generation Legend main relay location is between the steering column and the fuse box. It's deep in there. There was a little difficulty drawing the relay so it's actually very deep in there. There is a device (a relay) blocking the main relay. You will need to remove it to get a view of the main relay. The removal procedure is the about the same as the Accord's procedure.

Locating the main relay using your ears and fingers:
Steps:

1. Turn the ignition to ON. You should hear two clicks (a thousand of a second apart) under the left or right side of the dash board. One click is for the ECU/Injectors the other is for the fuel pump. At this moment the check engine light should come on.
2. Listen carefully at the moment the clicks engage (usually somewhere underneath the dashboard.) Reach in and touch the main relay.
3. 2 seconds later you should feel a click if the main relay is at least working or wait until it works. At this moment the check engine light should go out.
4. Turn the ignition to start and you should feel a click, turn engine off you should feel another click.
5. Most main relays should have seven terminals. Please check if the location is already listed below.

How do I get the main relay out?
Steps: See four ways below so you can get it out. First you have to reach high up in there and do all this with one hand and a flashlight.
efiremoveinstall.gif A. Unbolt the bolt using a 10mm socket (picture A) or
Ab. Unclip the clip from the steel tab and slide it apart (picture A) or
B. Separate the steel tab from the plastic case (picture B) with a large flat screw driver jam and twist between the plastic case and the tab or
C. Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Unclip two clips I pointed with two arrows (picture C, or below) with a small flat head screw driver or with a strong thumb and then yank it out (D.) This is the preferred choice by many. Mechanics prefer choice A and maybe B. See detailed relay circuit photo.

I have a 1996 Acura 3.5 R.L. just put a new fuel pump in and it won't start. It turns over, but will not stay started.


Check your main fuel relay.



Fuel Supply System


PGM-FI Main Relay


Description


This PGM-FI main relay is located behind the dashboard


lower cover. The PGM-FI main relay actually contains


two individual relays. One relay is energized whenever


the ignition is on. It supplies battery voltage to the PCM,


power to the fuel injectors, and power for the second


relay. The second relay is energized for 2 seconds when


the ignition is switched on, and when the engine is running.


It supplies power to the fuel pump.

NOTE: If the engine starts and continues to run, the PGMFI


main relay is OK.


1. Remove the PGM-FI main relay.


2. Attach the battery positive terminal to the No. 3*


terminal and the battery negative terminal to the


No. 2* terminal of the PGM-FI main relay. Then


check for continuity between the No. 5* terminal and


No. 2 terminal of the PGM-FI main relay.


• If there is continuity, go on to step 3.


• If there is no continuity, replace the relay and


retest.

3. Attach the battery positive terminal to the No. 4 terminal


and the battery negative terminal to the No.


7* terminal of the PGM-FI main relay. Then check


that there is continuity between the No. 3 terminal


and No. 1 terminal of the PGM-FI main relay.


• If there is continuity, go on to step 4.


• If there is no continuity, replace the relay and


retest.


4. Attach the battery positive terminal to the No. 1 terminal


and battery negative terminal to the No. 2*


terminal of the PGM-FI main relay. Then check that


there is continuity between the No. 5* terminal and


No. 2 terminal of the PGM-FI main relay.


• If there is continuity, the relay is OK;


If the fuel pump still does not work, go to Harness


Testing on the next page.


• If there is no continuity, replace the relay and


retest.

My horn doesn't work on my 1999 Acura TL 3.2. Is


Absolutely - You'll find it in the main fuse-box - probably located in one of the kickpanels (near your feet) or dashboard cover, or maybe even in the glovebox - There will be a fuse that feeds a horn relay - the ground side is fed from the horn pad, and the output side fed to the horn itself (engine compartment). The fuse for the horn is located in a fusebox with about another 25 fuses; and should be hot at all times, both sides.

96 acura tl 3.2l is overheating+signals wont work


Start with the easy one (hopefully). You probably have to replace your turn signal flasher. It's located behind the dash, driver side of steering column in the relay block (just pull out to remove).
Your overheating problem: Are you losing coolant, or is the car just running hot? Any leaks, puddles?
Check the cooling fans to make sure they are kicking on as the engine temp rises. If not, you may have a bad switch that is not telling the fan to go on. If fan(s) are operating ok, check the thermostat. If it isn't opening properly, it could be the cause of the overheating. If you have a leak in the system, then when it gets too low, it starts to overheat. Many possibilities, So, let me know the answers to the above so I can help further if needed.
