Acura TL Problems

When I connect my A/C Pro DIY gauge to the low side it is in the red. The relays and fuses are in great shape but it still blows hot air. When I cycle from cool to hot I can hear everything cycling and working. Could you please help? Thank you.

Acura TL Recalls
In a crash that deploys the driver's front air bag, the inflator of the air bag can rupture, causing metal debris to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the front driver's air bag inflator free of charge to correct the concern.
This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
Prolonged under-hood and power steering fluid temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate resulting in cracks and power steering fluid leakage. Power steering fluid can leak onto the catalytic converter leading to smoke and possibly an under-hood fire. Dealers will install a new heat resistant power steering hose to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is S39.
Acura TL Reviews
I bought a low mileage '05 TL at the beginning of '09. It has been a fantastic and reliable car so far. I love the style and performance. My only complaint is the dashboard. If you read reviews on this you will find it is an all to common problem for the '04 and '05 TL's to experience major cracks in the dashboard. Acura needs to step up to the plate and offer a voluntary recall.
I have Acura TL, 2012 FWD. I do not know if anybody else have the same problem as me, but would like to find out. I think Acura has a serious problem with leather. Yes, leather on the seats.It is bulging up in no time. It is depressing to see-mostly on the driver seat since it is used most, and I am not overweight.
The interior sucks. Mine and many other owners of the 05 acura dashboards are cracking. There should be a recall. It is ridculous to pay so much for a car that is defective. So far everything else has been working fine.
