Where is the turn signal relay on a 2001 Honda Civic?

The problem is almost certainly the flasher relay. The turn signals and 4-ways use a separate flasher.

Look in your owners manual for location in the relay box.

If you don't have owner or service manual, and you can find the box, they are usually labeled on the lid.

If you can't find the relays (under the hood) then follow the auto zone advice.

At ozone will probably change it for you if you ask.

Ok i've posted before. 93 civic starts sometimes, sometimes doesn't. i've replaced the distributor,the main relay and the fuel pump.(all from a parts car i have) still the problem exists. next i'm going to...

I would agree that it is the ignition switch, a thought also would be the Fuel Injectors, Starter pinion jamming in the fly wheel, or starter solenoid. FYI, in case you have not bought one, a new ignition switch runs about 52.00 at autozone. Good Luck!

1994 Honda Civic has a difficult time starting during hot weather

the main relay may need to be replace. is the car hot inside on a hot day , and when you air out the car to cool inside temperture, it starts.

My 1998 accord ex is sporadically not fully starting.

If it happens primarily in hot weather (i.e. inner temp of car is over 100 degrees after returning when parked), I'd definitely replace the main relay located under the dash on the driver's side (waaaay up under the dash). It's a $55 part from Honda that plugs directly in to the existing harness. Unplug the old, plug in the new. I'd bet a paycheck that this would fix your problem (if it mainly happens in hot weather).

Starting in hot weather

Turns out that Hondas are notorious for having starting problems during the summer (sometimes it also happens when you just run them for a short while). I have a 1990 honda civic lx and was having starting problems and noticed that it was mostly during hot days. I got my starter rebuilt but the problem continued. Also I noticed that my car was flashing CODE 16.
The flashing code, together with the starting problems, points to a problem with the MAIN RELAY.
Turn the ignition on and check for codes, pull the carpet back on the passenger side floor and look for the flashing LED, count the flashes--that'll be the code (there's a short pause inbetween codes).
The Main Relay is located under the dash on the driver side, usually on the left hand side, can be up against the left wall, it's a small black unit with a plug. You need to unscrew it from its mounting bracket first. Change the main relay and it should solve your summertime starting problem.

Truck will not start when its hot.

i live in jacksonville fl. and my truck(93 f150)was doin the same thing. i changed all my grounds to the motor firewall etc. and the problem has stoped. my truck would sound like its battery was dead, and i realized the started would be really hot so i would pour about a gallon of water and it would start rite up. changing the ground wires seem to do the trick for me.i hope this helps , good luck!
