No sound using the FM stations nor CD player, correct?

correct, as well as the cassette player. the power goes to it, but the graph showing sound level is flat, and then after a few moments it shuts off.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it's the bose sound system that came with the car.
Mechanic for Acura: Chris (aka- Moose), Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

The symptom chart for no sound combined with the audio unit shitting off indicates to replace the radio not the front amplifier for this issue.

You guarantee that it's the actual unit that needs replacing, that it isn't specific to the radio, the Cd or cassette player, the dangling cable or anything that can be repaired.

I would need to see a picture of this cable to get closer to a gaurantee.

i can try to send you a photo, but as stated in my first message, it is brown, as well as the connection, sort of recessed and square-ish shaped. i'm thinking that-when they install sound systems-there shouldn't be a cable not connected. in which case, would that be the problem?
Mechanic for Acura: Chris (aka- Moose), Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

I have looked over the wire diagrams and can not find a single brown wire to connector from the radio. Would a wire diagram help.

sorry, because i work nights it's sometimes hard to reply immediately. i checked on youtube and google, to see if there are pics of the cable. no luck so far.
i'm just concerned by you saying that the system needs replacing. having familiarity with acuras, perhaps the rsx-s, and the bose system, is it normal for any cable to be hanging unattached for a sound system supplied stock?
Mechanic for Acura: Chris (aka- Moose), Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes you can have cables not connected when a car is not equipped with a certain feature. Can you take a picture of it?

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
