Customer Question
Check VSA System SAHWD...

Check VSA System SAHWD lights all came on at once. Got car into garage and all electrical died.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Sorry--the yellow information on the dash of my 2008 MDX

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '08 Acura?

Car made a whistleing kind of sound when I first started up then all the yellow info came on

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

Literally drove it into the garage and all systems crashed.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

140,000 miles and have taken very good care of it.

Ok more then likely you have lost battery voltage i recommend you check this if the battery checks out then you may have a issue with the body control module which you will need to check and see if you have power going to it if you have power at the body control module and the battery checks out ok then you will need a new module and coded by a certified shop that has the correct scan tools to do this . I hope this helps please dont forget to provide feedback for the help provided thank 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.

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
