Acura Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am still awaiting an answer to my question. Any help would be most appreciated. If not, can I get a refund back?
Yes, anything you can provide would be welcomed. I'm just not sure where to start with my this whole problem. The car worked one day just fine. The next day it didn't. As soon as you install a fuse for the radio it blows out. It's is the fuse panel in the engine compartment. The fuse under te dash isn't blown, which I think is odd. Because of this blown fuse, the alarm goes off every time you turn the car on, open a door, or the trunk. The alarm fob doesn't work anymore, the radio doesn't work, and neither does some of the electronic components like the seat memory button. the car has to be running in order for the interior electrical switches to work, ie... the dome light, trunk release lever.
I don't know if I got some kind of ECM, or an alarm module that is bad. Just not quite sure.
Nothing would have been stuck into the cd slot as it has a 6 disc changer in the trunk. It has a tape player on the head unit, but there is nothing inside it becasue I checked. It was also recommend that maybe something fell into the cigarette lighter socket and maybe have shorted the circuit, but there is nothing in there and the lighter still works.
Yes it is.
I will take that advise and try that as an option. I have a question, if the ECM for the alarm was to go out, would the same kind of problems I am having now be present?
Is there anyway to bypass that module to check?
Sorry, for the delay in "accepting " your answer. I just wanted to check if pulling the stereo would fix my issue. I pulled over the weekend, and it did fix my problem of the fuse blowing. I would like to ask just another question. If I buy another stock radio from like ebay or something, and it doesn't work for whatever reason, what would be my next course of action? Or dod you think a new stereo is the fix-all?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Per your advise I disconnected the radio and it did solve the problem of the engine fuse blowing. My internal electronics are back to working properly as is my alarm. My additional question for you was: If I buy another stock radio from like ebay or something, and it doesn't work for whatever reason, what would be my next course of action? Or do you think a new stereo is the fix-all?
Thanks for the info on the non Bose system.
I would like to ask you other questions with regards to my acura. Do I have to deposit more money for new questions? Im not sure how this website works?
First; The only doorlock that works with the alarm disarm button, or the drivers master lock switch is the drivers door. I'm assuming that is some kid of relay or the master swith that needs to be replaced. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Second; the steering wheel up and down position switch quit working. I was having to manually adjust the steering wheel down and out to drive, and vise versa to get out because of my electrical problems, and now the the steering wheel will go in and out, but it wont go up and down. I still hear the noise like it's working, but it's louder now, and doesn't do anything. Is that mechanism gear driven? what could be wrong? Any idea's would be most appreciated.
I was wondering if you were able to get any additional information with regards to my other questions?
Actually the drivers lock switch doesn't do anything.
The pass. side switch opens the pass side and back right door.
If I try to unlock or lock the door from outside on the pass side it locks it unlocks all the doors and unarms the alarm and vice versa.
The fob with one push will unarm and unlock drivers door, a double push will unlock the drivers and right rear door, and vice versa.
Very strange behavior if you ask me.
Thank you for all of your great help. I bought a used radio for my RL today and I was wondering if you could get me the unlock code? The radio serial number is: B70524297C
Thanks a ton for everything,
I understand, thanks for your time though.
Good afternoon: I have another question for you. It is in regards to my 1991Toyota MR2 2.2 non turbo. Recently the Speedometer quit working and I am looking for what my options are to troubleshoot. Can you help?
