Hi can you do a ohms test ? Do you have a voltmeter?

No, I don't. Can I get one inexpensive somewhere?
Not really. Does the release button on the hatch feel funny, like there’s no button anymore ?
Ask Your Own Acura Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
it feels and sounds like there is no click anymore
I would start by replacing that release button, the micro switch has possibly gone bad

Ok can a local shop replace it for less than the Acura dealer?
Absolutely
Ask Your Own Acura Question
I would have them check for continuity at the release switch first. Very easy test

Could you tell me how much I should expect to pay and how many hrs should it take to repair
Not sure for cost around your area but I’m guessing no more than 1 hour diagnosis charge and a half hour to install it. Switch can range in price from 50 to 400 if you have the rear camera mounted with switch

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!!!!
