The main relay, which supplies power to the fuel pump, can fail. The engine will crank but fail to start (or start intermittently).
The relay that supplies electrical power to the fuel pump may fail, causing the engine to stall or fail to start.
The car will sometimes not start because of a problem with the ignition switch. Some models may have been recalled by Acura for this issue, please check with your dealer to be sure.
A loud rattle type noise may be noted from the engine after a cold start. This can be caused by a faulty valve timing control actuator. Replacing the failed actuator will commonly correct this noise issue.
The automatic transmission tends to fail more often than in similar models.
Some vehicles may develop a soft, low brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition may be caused by a faulty vehicle stability assist (VSA) modular control unit. If this is the case replacement of the VSA modular control unit would be required.
A shudder or vibration may develop while driving at speeds between 35 and 40 MPH. Our technicians tell us this condition is commonly caused by a failed automatic transmission torque converter. It is recommend to replace the torque converter and install an updated powertrain control module (PCM) to correct this concern.
