Hey I have a quick question. I looked through the manual and couldnt really find out where the main realy located.
I have a 1994 Civic Ex w/D16Z6. Where is the main relay located?

How much do they cost?

Do I have to get them from a dealer?

Thanks

sweet deal then. I may just go that route instead. When yours went bad did it cause your car to not want to start but still crank over ok?

I am kinda confused on what exactly it looks like. lol. But if I am understanding correctly, the main relay- is that the grey block that all the fuses are inserted into? That was the only thing I saw in that area that I thought it could be.
Just want to make sure that what it is before I take it out

Thanks for the help

Like stated, it's only a 10mm wrench and probably a flat edge driver to help remove the "never-once-removed' harness from the relay.

Someone post that he tried putting his relay in the frig to help his issues...try that maybe?

Just to clarify, but by putting it in the refrigerator for a while, is that just the way to verify that was the issue?

Well, the issue with the main relay is that some of the solder joints on the board become loose and lose connectivity. I suppose the frig that it'll close 'um a bit for a better connection. Heck, if you where going to just toss it you won't be losing out on anything!
