Forgot to mention, both headlights replaced a few months ago and the igniters, prior to that the high pressure power steering. Other than that just the typical major service (timing belt, tune up oil changes and such). Thanks looking forward to your questions or advice

Hello sorry for the delayif this battery is in question the first step here is to have the battery charged and tested. when these systems see low battery voltage they will code up.

Just the hid bulb and ignitor to solve the flicker issue. Work done 3 most ago. No other work for a year before that.

then I would get this scanned as the lights are on could be a coincidence or a fault in the system do you have access to a scanner ? to see which codes are stored so we can continue.

I don't but I just pulled my car back into the garage and only now the emission light is on the AFS and the transmission lights are no longer blinking
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago
ok. well you can try to reset the system by disconnecting the battery and letting it set or do a master reset to the system,

Please advise on doing a master reset to the system
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago
ok disconnect the battery and use a wire to connect both battery cable ends together for 15 minutes .you will need to place something over the battery so you don't short the leads to the battery post.this will discharge the entire system and clear all hard codes and memory. you will need to reenter your radio code and navi code once this is done.

What Customers are Saying:

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.

FredUSA

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
