Electrical problem
1998 Acura RL 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

I dont know whats wrong with it. It simply does not work. It uses to be very flaky, sometimes it would work and then sometimes it wont, then I thought it was the prongs inside and I tried to pull them out a little bit. Since then it does not work at all. I could have shortened it. Is there a separate fuse for the lighter, I saw something about relay, Suggest something please.

Do you
have the same problem?

1997 Acura RL

I have an 1997 acura rl, the radio, interier lights and cigarette lighter stopped working at the same time. Does anybody know what relay or fuse controls these things? What do I need to replace in order to fix these problems?

1996 Acura RL 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 204000 miles

I shorted the cigarette lighter. ALL the fuses are fine, but the cig lighter does not work. I use it for cell phone, MP3 player etc. The manuals suggest to check the relay in the relay block under against the right rear of engine compartment on the firewall. Which relay is it?

Then underhood relay box is not located in the spot you indicate on my 1996 Acura rl. Do you have any idea where it might be?
