#885 of 1046 turn signals, hazard lights
Jul 20, 2006 (6:09 pm)
I just bought a used 2003 Acura RSX. Unfortunately, when I got it home I noticed that neither the turn signal nor the hazard lights work. I replaced the fuses for both with no change. I've never heard of a bulb causing all lights to malfunction, but I guess I will try that next. Also, the turn signal indicator lights on the dash don't light either. Any ideas out there? Thanks.

Try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. Sometimes this clears the codes.

'05/'06 use different suspension parts than earlier years. I KNOW the springs are different because when I got my Eibachs for my '06 they carried a different part number. I too have the popping sound in the front end. Dealer told me it was caused by the Eibachs! I guess not, after reading about all the front end noises on these stock RSXs.
#888 of 1046 hesitation when shifting 1st-2nd when hot
Aug 02, 2006 (6:58 pm)
I have a '06 rsx, i was wondering if anyone else has this problem. When the car is cold, it's very snappy when shifting from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd. But when the car gets hot, it has a bad hesitation when shifting in those gears from 4000 rpms to 5000rpms, and if i leave it in 2nd it studders untill it passes 5000rpms. The dealership is telling me its normal, but I don't believe that. It's bogs out bad. It only happens when its hot, like i said its really powerful when you first start it up.

I don't have the exact same problem, but it sure does seem like the A/C saps about 1/2 of the engine's power. Do you notice the problem when you have the A/C on? My car is a total dog with the A/C on. And if left to its own, the tranny is almost always in a too high of a gear, making the situation worse.

Yea, my car looses alot of power with the a/c on too, but my car does this without the a/c on, it just totally dogs out when shifting at 4 to 5000 rpms only when its hot

Is it an auto or a manual tranny?
When you say "when the car gets hot" are you referring to when the car is warmed up or that it is actually running hot?
Just trying to get clarification before I answer
Also, what are the air temperatures when you notice this?
#892 of 1046 Suspension Problems (for a change)
Aug 08, 2006 (7:32 am)
I am experiencing the oh so common spring issue, which has taken the dealership 6 months to figure out. I suggested that they put MDX spring silencers on (as I saw on here) and they said it wouldnt work...after an argument, they did, and it worked (so far...two days and counting). However, I have also had three sunroof replacements...rattling, creaking, etc. My question is, I also have a knocking in the rear passenger side tire. Its worse when the car is first driven. The dealer replaced a strut, made repairs to the sway bar, and the problem did not go away. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

I have the same problem with my 05 base model. I was on the thruway the other day in the rain, and it began. I thought something was falling off my car. I have had three sunroofs replaced, and it may have something to do with that? Im on the third, but it hasn't rained yet...

My car is a manual, 5 speed. The car isn't running hot, just when the temperature warms up. When I first start it in the morning or whenever, and take off, the cars got alot of power, but when it warms up, it totally dogs out when shifting from 1-2 and 2-3, when shifting between 4000-5000 rpm's. The dealership is telling me this is normal, I know better, I've had alot of other cars and none of them did something like this.
