Stubborn or Sticky Shifter

This bulletin applies to 2016 Acura RLX AWD vehicles where multiple indicators are on or the transmission won’t go into gear, and the MIL is on with automatic transmission DTC P26C3 (internal control module transmission range sensor performance). 


Acura Makes it Easier

This bulletin applies to all affected vehicles including, for example, the 2014 Acura MDX vehicles equipped with a 3.5L engine. Acura reports that they have made the HDS easier to install.


Safe Slip-On

Acura recommends the use of Honda TB2720C water-base lubricant, P/N 08734-0013, as the only lubricant that is factory-approved for installing rubber intercooler hoses.


Acura Rocker Switch

This bulletin applies to 2007-2012 Acura RDX and 2002-2006 RSX models. The MIL may be on with one of the following DTCs:


Acura Hands-Free Issues

This bulletin applies to 2013 Acura ILX Hybrid, RDX and ILX vehicles. When using the HandsFreeLink (HFL), one or more of the following problems may occur:


Acura Buzz

This bulletin applies to 2014 and 2015 Acura MDX vehicles. After driving in reverse and steering, a buzz or grunt may be heard after shifting from reverse to drive and turning the steering wheel. 


Try Battery Cable Reset

This bulletin was released by Acura. Should software develop errors, which can happen from something like a low battery or interrupting a learn procedure, it can cause all sorts of odd electrical problems that can be hard to troubleshoot. Trying a battery cable reset just might do the trick.


Repair, Don’t Replace

This bulletin applies to 2001-1012 Acura MDX, 2007-2012 RDX, 2005-1012 RL, 2009-2012 TL and 2010-2012 ZDX models. If the threads for the rear differential drain or filler plugs are stripped, there’s no need to replace the pricey rear differential case...simply repair the threads.


Funky Idle

This bulletin applies to 2012 Acura RDX models. If the throttle body was recently cleaned or replaced, DTC P2279 (intake air system leak) or P0507 (idle control system rpm higher than expected) and a fluctuating idle exists, it’s likely that the throttle plate is now in a different position from the one that the PCM/ECM had previously learned. To fix the problem, the ECM/PCM must be relearned to the new throttle plate position.


Acura Nut Update

Just in case you’re working on a 2014 Acura MDX, pay attention to the wheel nut specs, as nut size and torque differ from those on the 2013 MDX.
