I am not sure as to your question since you do not reference a certain problem. If you have a relay that seems to work intermittently, I have found that if you very slightly twist the tabs that it will fit tighter. This will insure that you are getting good contact.

The problem is the Main Relay. The location of the relay makes it susceptible to failure when the sun is shining on it. A simple replacement of the Main Relay will fix this problem. If you want to replace it yourself, it is located under the dash, to the left of the steering column (hidden by silver cruise control box, which needs to be removed).

How do you locate and change the main relay on a 1992 Integra?

Main relay to what? There is no "main relay". You have multiple relays for a variety of functions. There is what may be considered a main relay, it is a "circuit opening relay". It controls the function of a variety of circuits (I.E. fuel pump, ECM, starter). Goto and look up your vehicle and see if their website gives you the location for this relay. Actually there is a Main relay it is under the steering coluum it is a 10mm bolt that holds the hazard flashers and the Main relay it is a burnt brown color easy to fix best way is to take the kick panel off (the 2 Phillip screws) and a couple clips and you will a little black box and behind it there is the Main relay =)
