Ok
Mechanic for Acura: Daniel Chaidez,

Okay well all of these systems do not share much in common. What they do share is the MICU and this is what Honda/Acura refers to as their body control module. The MICU is a computer board that is installed into the fuse box under the drivers side of the dash. This is the main brain behind most of the body related functions. Now with all of these systems going bad at the same time i do suspect that your MICU has failed since it was a common failure point for this era of Acura/Honda. Being an electronic component you would need further diagnosis with a scan tool to confirm if your MICU has failed but you most likely will be replaced the MICU here unfortunately.

How much would it cost to have fix
Mechanic for Acura: Daniel Chaidez,
 replied 1 year ago

ballpark of 500-600 for the part and for the programming that is required after replacing it.

In an estimate how much would the labor be
Mechanic for Acura: Daniel Chaidez,
 replied 1 year ago

1-2 hours since replacing it is not very difficult and programming usually only calls for 1 hour of labor.

You can order it online or from your local Acura dealer. I don’t have access to the Acura parts catalog to give you a part number.

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
