      Comments about BWD/Intermotor Relay:

      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.

      Comments about BWD/Intermotor Relay:

      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.

        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.

              This BWD/Intermotor Relay - part# R4819 is an exact fit for your 2003 Acura TL. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

              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
