The A/C relay, which is also known as the A/C compressor clutch relay and the A/C compressor relay, is in charge of engaging the electromagnetic compressor clutch. Without it, the A/C system won’t cool your vehicle.
The A/C relay can usually be found in the vehicle’s fuse box. The fuse box cover typically has a diagram illustrating the exact location of each relay.
The vehicle’s make and model will impact where you can find the A/C relay. In 2008-2012 models of the Honda Accord, the A/C relay can be found in the R9 position in the engine compartment fuse box. Meanwhile, in 2006-2011 Honda Civic models, you’ll find the A/C relay in the R10 slot in the engine compartment fuse box.
Tips on How to Access the A/C Relay
Use your owner’s manual to find out where your fuse box is. Each vehicle can have multiple fuse boxes in different places, including the passenger side, the driver’s side, and the engine compartment. The A/C relay will usually be found in the engine compartment fuse box. Use the diagram on the box’s cover to locate exactly where it is. If the lid’s diagram is faded or difficult to decipher, you can try to check your owner’s manual or look online for a clearer diagram of your specific vehicle’s fuse box.
