maybe you can show me how to post messages with pictures.thanks
Usually you need a webhosting or a place where to put pics where u can link them. Usually, you can't do that w/ Geocities, etc.

the last picture shows where the main relay is located,just behind the fuse board and it has only one screw holding it.if you think that you need to replace yours,just disconnect the wire from the bad one and connect the new one and just bolt it somewhere or leave it hanging there,thank you jose for posting those pictures .that would help a lot of brothers with the main relay problem.I have 2 acura engines sitting on my driveway so if you guys are not sure where some parts are located email me or just post it

Is there an easy way to do this? I took about 2 hours to replace mine and I ended up not screwing the new one in- just letting it hang. It is so hard to work on. Are you supposed to take the whole fuse box out? I just took the whole panel off and got a 1' extender for my 10mm. It was still very tight.

yes this is the relay that causes the car not to start.like said it should take you about 15 to 30min to replace it.all you have to do is find the connector that goes to the realy,disconnet it and then connect it to the new relay and you can just let it hang it would not hurt anything,by the way no you dont have to take the fuse board just reach behind it and you feel the relay connection

yes thats the one.and no there is no other way to do it.but its very simple dont try to kill you self trying to move the front fuse board like I said before in my post now it takes me two minutes to change mine.all yo have to do is disconnect the wire and reconnect it to the new one and you are done.if you cant screw it somewhere just let it hang its not going to do any damage.if you can look at the last picture it tells you that the relay is just behind the board,so reach with you hand from the bottom until you can feel it.good luck
