You are in the Acura Integra
What is this discussion about?
Acura Integra, Coupe, Hatchback
Jan 30, 2006 (3:44 pm)
I bought my 1997 Integra in July. I had to replace the battery and with that my radio/cd player (stock) was disconected. I need the error code to hook it back up. The code should be in my owners manual but sadly, I never got one. I've been told the only way to find the code is to either take out the deck and find the reference code on the back and from there call it into Acura and obtain the code that way OR apparently you can look under the hood fuse box lid...and it's suppoused to be there. (It's not.) I eventually plan on putting a system into my Teg but not for a while, I want to have some body work done first. My question is, is taking the deck out the only way to get the code? And if so, I've heard horror stories about taking the cd player out...true or false...?

you can go to the dealership, prove you own the car, and they will look it up for you, as long as it is the original stereo installed in the car. I can't imagine they would charge you to do that, although I wouldn't say it was impossible either.
#768 of 1037 Radio problem
Jan 31, 2006 (6:56 am)
My OEM radio unit turns on fine, but after a few seconds, there would be no sound (or sometimes, no sound at all after turning on the radio).
I tried to play a cassette, and the same thing happens, so it isn't just the radio. I want to take the unit out to see if the plug in the back is loose. Or to just change to a new unit altogether. Does anyone know how to take the radio out? Do I have to remove all the front panel cover?
#769 of 1037 Love my 94 Integra - but need new car - suggestions?

It is time to part with my loyal 94 LS Integra which has never stranded me except for flats. I need a slightly larger car, probably a wagon, to haul my toddler in. But everytime I try a new car it is never as nice as my Integra. I am looking for a similar ride and decent mileage as well as some luxury. I also want a reliable vehicle and don't want a big SUV. I know I can't get the same ride in a wagon, but I would like something close. Any suggestions? I did like the new Maxda 5 crossover but it does not have enough upgrades.

I would check out the new Mazda3 hatchback, unless it would just be too small for your current needs. It will seat two adults comfortably in the back, or two child seats if need be. It has better handling than the Integra, it will be a little faster than your '94, fairly easy (high 20s combined mpg) on gas, and a decent list of upgrade features. It is a lot of fun, and I almost bought one (bought an RSX instead) when I replaced my old Integra.
#771 of 1037 Transmission Fluid Change

My 94 Integra is now at 80K. It's been 30K since the last transmission fluid change. Wondering what is the avg price for this at local shops and at the dealership?
Is a 'flush' necessary, or should it be just a drain & fill.

If you're car shakes every time you brake my guess is your rotors are done. You can try to resurface them if they're not too eaten up... otherwise you should just upgrade/replace them.
If your car is a manual and you dont want to be constantly resurfacing your rotos I recommend NOT braking in neutral. Yes, you heard me . Just leave your car in gear when you're braking and than don't pop the clutch in until you're about to stall out. I'v had so many friends that dont know how to drive and refuse to take my advice and suffer a similar fate as your shaking car.

Thanks, bdog for the suggestion. I'll give it a look. I guess I am a little concerned about staying small b/c of the saftey factor, but not so concerned that I want a big gas guzzler. I feel that the handling of my Integra & especially its fast braking has saved me from several accidents.

#775 of 1037 Sudden shutdown of the car
Feb 07, 2006 (11:03 am)
Hi all. Can someone please help? I have a 98 Integra GS-R, and it has run excellent without problems and I do the routine maintenance work on it. The other day, I was driving on the freeway about 70-80mph, when the car just shut down completely. The tach and speedometer just went down and the car shut down, basically leaving me crusing in neutral as you would if you just let the parking brake off while parked and cruised in neutral down a hill. When the car shut down, the radio stayed operational, but NONE of the lights on the dash came on. I tried to start the car three times to no avail. Each time, the car cranked very well, but would not ignite. After waiting a minute, the car finally started and I drove off and haven't had the problem since. Soon after, I had the battery and alternator checked, and those both checked out very good. I asked around and was told possibly the fuel relay, distributor or ignition coil. Does anyone have any idea what could have happened? Or yet, can anyone speak from experience? Thanks for reading and thanks for your help!
