Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 3 years ago
ok then if you have a volt meter I need to you measure the voltage at the single wire at the ac compressor. also do you have access to a set of ac gauges ? would like to see what the pressure is at static and in operation.it's sounding like the system might be low or a clutch or relay issue.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
There is a blue wire on the compressor that connects to the fan I think , once I disconnect those two the condenser fan turns on and if I do connect them the compressor turns on for about two seconds and then turns off. I checked all the relays and everything is ok
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 3 years ago

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
