Honda Accord/Civic/Prelude 1973-1983 Repair Guide




See Figures 1 and 2

The fuse box is located below the glove compartment, on the right bulkhead on Civic models. The Accord and Prelude are equipped with a fuse tray which swings down from the instrument panel (left side below steering wheel). Some vehicles also are equipped with junction/relay box which contains various relays or circuit breakers, located near the main fuse box. Most fuse boxes contain 8 fuses, some of which are rated at 10 amps and others at 15 amps. The rating and function of each fuse is posted inside the fuse box cap for quick reference.


Fuses can be replaced or removed simply by pulling them out of their retaining clips. Since each fuse protects more than one circuit, detection of a fuse blowout is an easy task of elimination.

The turn signal relay and hazzard flasher relay are located in a junction/relay panel under the dash area on the left side near kick panel area, on all models. To replace the relay just pull it out from fuse panel/relay box. To install just push-in the fuse panel/relay box.
