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.

Reprogram computer to fix shifting problem in automatic transmission
Some automatic transmissions have a shifting problem that can be corrected by simply reprogramming the computer.
Electrical smoke coming from under dash drivers side by steering column

I smelled and saw smoke coming from underneath the stearing column and the gauge needle lights don't work anymore. All the inside fuses are good and going to check under the hood now.

Car runs fine the only thing that I can see wrong is the normaly lighted neddle for rpm, mph, fuel are not lit.

2007 Acura RL Recalls

Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

The driver's frontal air bag inflator may be susceptible to moisture intrusion, which over time could cause the inflator to rupture. If this happens, it would spray metal fragments upon deployment. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Possible Brake Fluid Leak From Master Cylinder

Use of incorrect brake fluid may cause a rubber seal in the rear of the master cylinder to become dry and leak. The leaking fluid will enter the brake booster and may not be visible externally. A loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected seal on all master cylinders, leaking or not. This recall is scheduled to begin during December of 2010. The Acura recall number is R52; the Honda Recall Number is R51.

Recall 07V551000

2007 Acura RL Reviews

Overall has been an excellent car. Did have to have the drive axle replaced at 44K due to a know issue with center dif bearing. About to get brakes taken care of...expensive job so be prepared. I would complain that the rotors warped early and I am not replacing with OEM. Interior is first rate, materials are excellent; almost as good as my Audi A6.
