Mechanic for Acura: Dan, ASE Master Technician replied 7 months ago

The steering wheel icon indicates an error code in the electronic steering assist system. You need a scan tool to check for codes in the steering and all other systems. Make sure that the battery cables are clean and tight and that the battery is not causing the problem. You need a volt meter to check the voltage on the battery. You could try disconnecting the battery and performed a capacitance discharge. That is basically disconnecting both of the battery cables and holding them together for a few minutes. That should reset the system. Check all of your fuses as well. If all of this checks out you may have a faulty starter. To verify you need to jump the starter solenoid. If the engine cranks you know the starter is ok. You may have a security system issue. You would need a scan tool to verify that.

Now that I have provided a full or partial answer a 5 star rating would be appreciated very much. You can do this rating at the box on the upper right hand corner.

Customer satisfaction is my number one goal.

Providing a rating is the only way I will receive credit for my work with you.

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.

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
