Acura MDX QuestionsRefine by vehicle
So had issues with my car not always starting. Seemed like it was mainly when I would drive around running errands so the car wouldn't sit much between. I would turn the key to start and it wouldn't there is no noise like squealing or clicking
All the lights come on and I could turn on the radio if I wanted too so it has power. The problem became worse. The problem became worse took the car to the shop. It of course didn't do this there. There are no codes coming up at all. So they looked and said my battery voltage isn't high enough that I need a new battey because of this it isn't strong enough to start it. Get a new battery and the same issue. Take the car back and they keep it for two days and it starts every time. They put a new starter in. The day I picked it up it starts go home no issues at all. The day after I drive to a few places. Park my car on a small incline at the end of my driveway and now it will not start. I have tried several times. Any advice? Please help! :(
Our navigational system/radio stopped working. When we took the center console apart to find the wiring, we seen that the wires had melted. Nothing else was affected just the radio and nav system. We can't see where the wiring goes from the console. Any suggestions on how to repair this problem ourselves without thousands of dollars??
My son's 2006 Acura MDX has been in shop for 5 weeks. Mechanic admits he can't fix it. Front cat converter replaced, and cam sensor replaced twice. Plugs replaced. Says vehicle runs, but is in "limbo," second gear. Thought it might be a timing issue. Any ideas? Don't want to keep wasting money with this mechanic.
Truck still idles rough. Check eng lite n VTM 4 lite still come on. Gas mileage is now horrible. Mechanic said he needed to reprogram computer, which he did and all these issues keep coming up. Now the truck stalls at idle, when cold. Once warm, no stall.
Where do I go from here?
Check engine lite turned off today.I am soooooo frustrated and am tired of spending money on a continuing issue.
Cannot find fuse in manual. Radio fuse good. what is the name of the fuse that I should be looking for. Manual isn't clear on fuse description. Thanks much.
Hi i drive my acura mdx 2003 i feel my 3rd gear slip but the Only code i have is P0420 and nothing
Engine was replaced in July 2014 with 137,000 miles. Replaced engine has 89K. Shop owner cannot find source of why engine runs rough with new rear cat converter. Should I have it towed to an Acura dealer? Thanks for any kind of help. Need my car.
i went to 2 different places
I have an Acura MDX 2007 model year, with 31,500 miles.
Should I change timing belt now, based on the elapsed time 8 years since purchase new, even though mileage is low?
my problem is that allthe light in the dasboard are on,for weeks now, what should i do to fix it? Acura 2004
i need the exhaust system from the catalytic converter back with both mufflers
I have recently started driving my company's car, but the nav unit doesn't work. The screen lights up and gets power, but the unit under the seat (bolted to the floor of all places) is corroded. This is obviously the source of the issue. My "stealership" is trying to charge me $4400 to fix it. Is this not their issue? They have said that they need to determine the source of the corrosion.... Uhmmm pretty sure bolting an electronic system to the floor is where the corrosion is coming from. Should they not have to pay for this?
with about 180,000, the light has come on a few times then gone out. Now it has stayed on for the last few hundred miles around town. I have brought into dealer who told me it was the converter though I didn't get the number. I'll go do that soon.
In the meantime, what problems happen by failing to get it fixed before said problems develop? How risky is it in regards to causing more expensive problems?
Check current draw with ignition off

I maintain my car well. The "check emission system" light has been on/off over past 3 months. Sometimes with a new tank of gas and a long trip, it clears out; sometimes not. Have never changed this part before. Is 150,000 miles a reasonable life expectancy for a catalytic converter?

I seen a pre tow checklist for 2004/2005 and have read 2004-2006 have the same drive train so I believe the answer is yes. However, I've not seen any Acura/Honda literature to confirm this belief.
Our MDX is parked outside always. Ever since it became cold, our Check Engine light is on until we've been driving for 30 or so minutes. It also begins to shudder when you exceed 20 mph. I also noticed today that the VTM-4 light comes on as well. We thought it was our transmission and just took it to a dealer to have that system flushed. They did a diagnostic and said everything looked good. We are at a loss as to what the problem is... Help!
Im asking this because I need to go get my car smog
