Thank you for taking time to ask your Honda-Acura question on JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** online handle is Honda-Man I will be assisting you.

Expert:  Honda-Man replied 1 year ago.

Sorry to hear about your predicament. There is a special multi-fuse in the under-hood fuse box.

Expert:  Honda-Man replied 1 year ago.

I will get the replacement instructions ready along with the parts info. Be back in a few!

Expert:  Honda-Man replied 1 year ago.

Sorry your main fuse is not a multi-fuse it's just a normal type main fuse. It will be easier to locate this way. It is inside the under-hood fuse box secured with 2 phillips head screws. I have included the location diagram and a parts link by clicking HERE.

Expert:  Honda-Man replied 1 year ago.

You are welcome!

I would check the engine oil and coolant. It would be a good idea to change the oil and filter. Probably be OK to run now as long as it's not low on oil then change the oil as soon as you can.
