Shuts down 4 seconds after it starts, .
Does anyone have a little more insight on how to properly synch your garage with the opener that's attached to the car? I've gone over the steps within the manual over and over, and never have seemed to get it to work. Any tips are welcome!
This was after a car accident, but it seems to be getting less milage now. I know, because I always pay attention to the miles my car has left, and see how many miles I've driven since that last time I've filled up. I also haven't changed my driving style up, it's been the same commute as always. Any tips on where to get started first? I want to avoid taking it to a dealership, since I'm short on cash right now.
I have some pain scruff marks on both rear sides of my bumper. I would like to see if I can buff out as much as possible. I just don't know what products/what to do. Nothing comes out when I wash my car by hand with just car soap. Any help would be much appreciated.
My vsa light is on how much is for brake light switch
Low beam is out. Bulb is ok. Fuse is ok. No continuity from fuse to light. Is there a transistor in the path?
Alternator failed and was replaced. New alt is charging now, tested by mechanic to be fine, but upon deceleration at about 10MPH, charging light flashes on then back off. Does not happen all the time. Seems to coincide with down shift (automatic). All good except annoyance of light.
I replaced all brake pads and had rotors resurfaced and bleed the fluid by the dealer and the brakes still suck, pedal is low and they don't have the "bite" of a good set of brakes.
Will mod the system with a performance brand work?
I have had the car since I purchased it new and there has always been times when the car takes a time or 2 to start. Now the car has some mornings where it won't start for a good 10 tries! Anyone find the reason behind this issue?
1. Broken of lug nuts the wheel hub was stuck so the mechanic installed a used aftermarket spindle, that's when vibrations started, also installed after market drilled and slotted rotors at the same time (car also pulls to the left or right sometimes)
2. Mechanic said maybe the tires out of balance, got it done, still vibrates
3. Mechanic said alignment, got it done still no help
4. Mechanic said bent wheel, changed the wheel still no change
5. Mechanic said driver said CV axle replaced it, still vibrates
6. Replacing the mechanic and looking for a new one.
(and trying to figure out a solution)
The car has sat a lot outside for over a year. It hasn't started for 6-7 weeks, 2 weeks ago it started, I filled it up, next day it wouldn't start and hasn't since. The car cranks, but won't start. Battery replaced 5 weeks ago. Lights on are check emissions, check TPMS. Took it to a mechanic, he said the main computer won't communicate with the diagnostic machine. My friend thinks its old gas and I should put dry gas in, the mechanic thinks it could be anything up to the main computer. The original main computer was replaced around 60k, so this is the second. Any thoughts would be very helpful.
I recently had my car air-conditioning serviced, and was told no leaks were found in the system , but it was low on refrigerant.
They evacuated the old refrigerant from the system and put in new.
I had thought that you could not lose refrigerant unless there was a leak in the system.
It had been approximately 2 years since I had it checked.
what do I need to do?
Just had alternator and battery replaced then check charging system light would flash on for a second when I slowed down. This happened about 6 times in 10 days after replacement. Now within the last couple of days the light isn't coming on but the dinging noise that accompanied the warning sign has come on 3 time within last couple of days when I come to a stop. What could be causing this ?
Temp set at 86 deg, switch to low for AC. sometimes it cools and other times it stays hot. If it does cool , and I don't change it from the low setting, the AC will work indefinitely. Could the Climate Control module be malfunctioning?
In my most recent scheduled maintenance - I was told my front compliance bushings are starting to tear.
My 2014 Acura TSX has a little over 10,000 miles on it. I have been having problems starting my car over the last couple months. The problem mostly occurs after I have driven the car,parked it for an hour or so and then go back to restart it. It takes 2-3 attempts to start it and normally requires me stepping on the accelerator before it starts. At first I thought that the cold weather might be a contributing factor, but I have experienced the same problem in 45 degree weather as well. I have brought my car to the dealership on 3 separate occasions (it is currently there now) but they have been unable to fix the problem.
Anyone experiencing the same problem????
Only happens in cold mornings, acura mechanic said that my starter and battery are good, heard other 2014 acura tsx owners have complained about this same problem.
