Have Honda Questions? Ask a Honda Repair Expert.
Please don't get upset, but since we never know what's on our customers mind when they post their requests, we need to ask questions that might seem unnecessary:
The Blue relay is actually the main relay (PGM-FI Main relay 1); the Brown one sitting right next to it is actually a fuel pump relay, even though Honda calls it Main Relay #2.
The main relay energizes first, then its circuit energizes the fuel pump relay.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
Well, they do pull out. It's kind of a hard pull, since each relay is secured in place by a couple of plastic tabs. I can tell you from past experiences that it won't pull out unless your hands are clean and dry - or, if you don't mind breaking the old one, just grab it with a pair of pliers like you would a bad tooth ;-p
Yes, pull them straight out.
Hi again. Just saw your reply and I'm glad to see the information I provided helped you solve your issue. So I would very much appreciate it if you would kindly accept and rate my answer now.
Well, from the very beginning I've been trying to help you. I just need you to tell me exactly how, as long as you take into consideration the fact that I can only provide technical guidance - tools and the skills to use them are on you.
The color of the relays was something Honda used for production purposes. Replacement relays might come in other colors and be equally effective.
I've reread your posts and cannot find those other questions you say went unanswered; could you post them again?
I did see where you post "I am attaching a 2 page diagram just incase someone else has this problem and would like to know the location of the relays.", which made me wonder whether or not you realize this is a pay site, not a forum.
I'm sorry you feel that way. Specially when I did mention those tabs "It's kind of a hard pull, since each relay is secured in place by a couple of plastic tabs". I'll opt out so others may try to help you. Please don't reply until another expert responds or the site will send you back to me.
