My 2005 acura tl hands free link is not working correctly.

Customer Question

my 2005 acura tl hands free link is not working correctly. When I speak the response is not correct. when I say pair or phone I get something else and can never get to pairing. I used to get the phone icon to appear and now it does not. It was there about three months ago. I did not by the last update. Do I need a new module?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have thought about it. There is not an Acura dealer in Columbia, MO only a Honda dealer. If it is not too expensive, I will have it fixed. If it is quite expensive, I may try it myself.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I have not tried anything yet. I was wondering if there was a hard reset that could reset the system. I have my car serviced regularly. I don't know of anything that could be causing the problem.

Hello welcome to Just answer I am master tech and will be able to assist you today.

the problem with your hands free link system is caused from a failed HFL unit.

this is the tell tail sign when they fail to recognize any normal commands.

to correct this problem you will have to replace the hands free link unit.

If you give me your vin # ***** can look up the correct part for you on my catalog.

I can provide you with a link I have made to actually replace this your self if you have a 8mm nut driver or socket set.

it will take you all of maybe 5-10 minutes to change this your self.

then let the unit come down and unplug it and plug the new unit in and its a plug and play system.
