2002 Acura RL Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2002 Acura RL

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.

The relay that supplies electrical power to the fuel pump may fail, causing the engine to stall or fail to start.

Acura extended the warranty due to numerous issues with the automatic transmission. Problems with the automatic transmission may make the car undrivable and can result in costly repairs.

Acura is recalling certain 2000–2002 TL vehicles due to possible brake light switch failure, which is caused by assembly oil contaminating the electrical contacts. The brake lights may not illuminate when the brakes are applied, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will clean excess oil from the brake pedal assembly and replace the brake light switch.
