I have tried to rebuild my 1500 starter relay. I unsoldered the coil leads from the contacts. Took it apart and found the "loose" contactis sandwiched between the contact attached to the power connection(battery or starter motor) and a swaged joint. I could not see a way to take the contacts apart without destroying it.



Is there a trick anyone knows todress the contacts?

Although with an emery board you might be able to dress it up, I would just get a new relay. I've done the old relays on cars and trucks years ago, it wasn't worth it due to them wearing out again after a couple of weeks, so it was easier to replace it. I ordered my last relays from Honda Direct Line,for my 93, about a year ago. Don't remember what it cost, but it was a lot cheaper than what the local stealer wanted for it.:)

The starter relay switch A is usually the one that fails first. There are very few problems with the starter relay switch B.

While you are there, check the 30-amp main fuse and it's contacts.

Starter relay switch A, part # 35851-MF5-751
