Customer Question
I have a 2003 MDX...
I have a 2003 MDX. The VSA light is on, I have to manually over-ride to get out of park and horn and brake lights are not working. Took it to dealership and they fixed a fuse. That worked for a couple of weeks and same thing happened again. So I am trying to find that fuse and understand what is going on? Thanks.

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

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
