Q: How do I replace the Radiator Fan Relay. on 1997 Acura RL

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I went to Acura dealership and they gave me a drawing showing the relay was on the driver side under the dash, close to the fuse area? I can not find it.

Right next to the upper radiator hose the is 2 long blocks with covers over them. Inside is fuses and relays. In the box closest to the radiator is the block you want. Remove the cover and the relay is right in the middle or 3rd from the left. That is the radiator fan main relay. In the second block there is a smaller radiator fan relay. I cant tell you why there is 2. the thing to do would be to switch both 1 at a time to see if a different relay will turn it on. If it does you have your faulty part.
