Customer Question
Driving home last night...

Driving home last night, I got a triple light warning: The VSA Light, the small engine light, and the ! light all came on simultaneously. I don't know what the issue is, but I got worried :)

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

No. I had a concern it wasn't driveable so I have not taken it to anyone as yet

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Acura?

2003 TL Type S

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your TL yourself? What have you tried so far?

This just happened last night. The reason I was apprehensive is because the last time these 3 lights came on, my transmission went out. But on that occasion I heard a loud thud. I have not heard that as yet

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

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
