Illumination of Entertainment/Navigation Screen and Switches May Fail on Acura TSX

The illumination of the entertainment/navigation screen and switches may fail. This is generally caused by a failed circuit board. Acura has extended the warranty on the audio display unit to 7 years or 105,000 miles for the 2004 model year only.
