I need a parts for the Sub Cooling Fan Relay that is located in the Fuse Box.

There are two relays for this cooling system each controls a different fan that is located on the back of the radiator. One is called the Cooling Fan Relay and the other is called the Sub Cooling Fan Relay. I need a part # for the latter.

This relay has four male ends that plugs into a rectangular receptor inside the fuse box. This receptor is slightly different in shape from the Main Cooling Fan Relay, which also has four male plugs.

This Relay may be also be called a Condenser Relay.

Because it plugs into the fuse box I don't believe it should have a metal loop on top of it which appears to be for mounting.

Do you
have the same problem?

The part number is going to be different from every supplier and the original OEM won't even be made any more. If you just bring the relay into any parts store, they should be able to match it up.

I would love to take the old on in but it is not there, that's why I'm asking for a part #. Some one surely is driving a Honda Accord that would have one that could share that information with me.

What's the point? That number will be obsolete.

An obsolete number is better than none at all. Besides, what good would taking in the part (if I had it) if the part number on it wouldn't help.

I buy relays every day and never use a part number. You can get it by application or match up the pattern. There's only 6 or 7 common relays. The same car usually has a half dozen of the same relay in it.

I have talked to parts stores, given them the pattern, checked the other relays (which won't interchange) and am checking wrecking yards to find something I can work with and haven't found anything. That's why I'm asking the car experts.

I don't know what you're trying to buy there. I just looked at the wiring diagram and there is no "sub cooling fan relay" in the circuit. There is one relay for the cooling fan and one relay for the Condenser fan. That's it.

The labeling on the fuse box calls one circuit the Cooling Fan Relay and the other one the Sub Cooling Fan Relay. I believe the latter is the Condenser Fan. I need help identifying the proper relay for this circuit because it is a different relay than the one on for the primary cooling fan.

The second fan is for the air conditioner only.
