If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

So I tried to start the car this morning and it was dead. So I took the battery in and the said it was dead but ok. But I got a new battery, got home, hooked it up and 5 mins in the system purged and the car was rough idling, I turned it off and disconnected the battery. Gonna check the relay now. Thanks for this thread!
Good Lord, you found a thread from the time I was going through nicotine withdrawals!

Surely you found the pics of the fusebox pinpointing the location of the clutch relay.
Remove the clutch relay from that fusebox so you can drive the car without burping more freon and without killing the battery overnight.

If possible, obtain an updated relay(MITSUBA BRAND) from a Honda dealer or sources online, and plug it in whenever you get it.

Keep in mind that if it burped out freon, it may not cool as well once you get it working again. It may need a little recharge, and technically it should get a new relief valve, but many are ignored and seem to be ok.
