    my moms 92 civic dx did the EXACT same thing! the main relay (same thing he said) was the culprit! It seems to be a common thing for these cars!
    All I did was pull it apart and resolder all the connections, works perfect now!
    Good luck

    Re-solder is an option if you have the time. But the relays that are purchased today have over come this issue, it seems to be related to the original factory part. Glad to hear you made out ok with this issue.
