The Acura service consultant said that the whistling noise was due to the right front window cracked open. First I couldn’t believe it and have asked him to look into the problem from the transmission standpoint as well, based on what I have read on the forum. He checked with Acura and found that this whistling noise can be caused by two reasons 1) The transmission pipe OR 2) When the re-circulate air button was turned on and he also confirmed that both of these problems have been fixed in 2007 models and onwards and are NOT applicable to 2009.
I was able to reproduce the problem by rolling the right front window slightly down and it stopped when I closed it completely, which is very strange - High pitched whistling noise as apposed to wind noise. I believe it as I see it. I had to keep my MDX for two days at the dealer for thorough investigation though.

I definitely got the same problem just today on my 2005 MDX. The radio stopped working for FM and AM while CD and DVD works fine.
Totally have no idea on what would be the problem here. Have you found the root - cause and got it fixed? I'll appreciate what you share with me on the forum.

Bmmandm (or anyone else who might have some suggestions),
Did you ever find the source of the scraping noise from under the front of the car after passing over a speed bump? Having the same problem with my 2009 MDX with 8500km. Definately not the ABS which is a short term thumping that occurs at about 30km/hr for about 3 seconds when the car hasn't been run for awhile. The scraping seems to occur after you go over a (small) speed bump at slower speed and go back on the accelerator. Nothing hanging under the car, not the wheels hitting the wheel well, and not the mud flaps or anything else hitting the ground. Took the front wheels off and don't see anything unusual. Doesn't happen every time but enough to cause concern. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have to exact same problem w/ AM FM radio not working, and XM CD DVD all working. I didn't notice problem until mid January 2010.
Have you been able to fix? If so, what was diagnosis?

I posted wind noise when I had my new 09 MDX Sport back in June (only one month I had). Technician said it is the sound from outside due to car box design.
It doesn't have any air leak thru window. My wife felt this noise right after we had the car. But the wind noise is getting so loud even when I drive at 45mph. The loud wind noise is continue when I drive at 60mph and above on local thruways or highways. My ears are getting heart after an hour drive.
Had anyone had this experience? I couldn't believe it is Acura quality. it is worst than my previous Jeep. It must be something wrong. Any one have any thoughts?
Will complain to dealer at next service. Someone mentioned it caught loud noise when connecting thru blue tooth when receive calls. But I got wind noise no matter what conditions. Please help.

Is it wind noise or "whining from engine area"?
See if you can find a TSB #08-031 issued Aug 09
Symptoms are very similar to what you mentioned.
I do not have a copy...try googling it

I had a "wind noise" on my '07 Sport, sounded like the drivers side window was down a crack. Dealer tested it and replaced all the soft parts of the door seal and no more problem.
#1849 of 2050 Radio and wind noise...
Feb 16, 2010 (11:01 am)
I guess I am the Lucky ONE who encounters both Radio and Wind Noise...
The radio issue seems like software related issue, I will contact my dealer and see what they have to say. It will cost me $$$ since it is out of warranty period, sux...
I will keep you posted.

Well, our first warranty related(thank god) problem on our '07 MDX Sport/Ent. with 35k miles. The "Sport" doesn't work!
The "ADS" light was coming on for a while and Acura said it was just a sensor so we put it off but now the sport/comfort button doesn't work, it just stays in comfort mode. We'll be dropping her off at Crest Acura real soon. Anyone else have problems with ADS?
