Honda Accords have a history of not starting because the solder on this unit cracks. You can re-solder if you want or just buy one and plug it in. This is a bear to get to but once that battle is over the rest is just plug and play. If you car starts once in awhile then Do not give up on you high mileage Accord until you replace this part or repair the old one. Just check online and you tube to get instructions to do the repair/replacement.

Didn't even work right. I stuck with the old one that if it acts up you just hit it and it works just fine.

    Comments about BWD/Intermotor Multi Purpose Relay:

    My car failed to start sometimes. But if I wait for 30 mins I can start it. I did some research online and found out it was a common issue on Accord related to Main Relay. I bought this part and installed it. It fits well. Hope it will solve the issue.

    The location of the main relay is under the dashboard on driver side. To see it you need to put your head above the paddles and look up. It is not difficult to reach it.

    The installation is pretty much easy. No tools is needed. By pushing it up and waggling it in the same time you can easily slide the old main relay out. Then replace it with the new one and put it back.

      These Acuras have this specific relay go bad routinely. Glad it was in stock and inexpensive. I bought it online, got the online discount and picked it up in the store same day. It doesn't get any better than that.

          Nephews Accord wouldn't start. Googled the symptoms, and narrowed the problem down to this Main Relay. I installed a new Main Relay from Advance, and the car starts every time.

            Car was stalling and sputtering occasionally. Replaced Fuel Pressure Regulator, no change. Took it to a garage and they wanted to replace the FPR again. Said only Honda parts work. Saw a posting on line that Main Relay might be the problem. Replaced it with this part. So far, so good. No problem.

            Replaces the OEM main relay without a problem. No issues with hooking up the vehicle's harnesses back into the relay. Everything is plug and play.

            My old main relay was starting to go bad and cause the car to take longer and longer to start. This new unit fixed that and starts are much quicker.

            The beauty is the lifetime warranty, so once I start feeling hesitant starts I just get a new relay.

                yes it is the main relay and runs the fuel pump too. It is to the left of your knee under the dash. I think the OEM has a gray cover
