2000 Acura RL Problems

Sensor Problems May Cause SRS Light To Turn On

The Airbag (SRS) warning light may illuminate due to one or more failed sensors. Our technicians recommend complete diagnoses of any stored fault codes because these sensors can be very expensive to replace.

Check Engine Light due to failed EGR valve or restricted passages

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to failure of the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve), or restricted passages in the engine related to the EGR system.

Car Horn keeps going off

The car horn keeps going off. Took it Honda Repair Shop. They thought they fixed the issue, but didn't. Took it back... They said couldn't find anything. Tonight at 11:15 pm it went off. Then again at 12:30am. It's waking up the neighborhood. We'd all appreciate the solution. I'm taking the car back in the morning. If anyone has knowledge of the solution, please let me know.
