The main relay on a '91 Accord is under the dashboard on the driver's left side of the interior (near the hood release lever). I first had to remove a large rectangular electrical device (no idea what it is) that had a harness plug-in in order to see the relay. Then the relay was visible higher up against the left wall. Use a socket to remove the securing nut, then the relay can be manipulated to more easily remove its harness plug.

Your main relay is near you fuse panel, its a little gray square. To find your main relay you can get a flashlight and stick your head in under your fuse panel and look around or you can listen or feel around the area as you move your key to run (not start) position and it will click as the fuel pump turns on and click a few seconds later as the fuel pump turns off.
