I have a 2011 MDX with Tech package and i started having the same problem 3 weeks ago. I've had the car for a little over a year and all of the sudden this issue started to happen. I took it to Acura and they replaced the relay switch, but that did not fix the problem.
They are now saying it's the harness and they think it may have been damaged when my car was involved in an accident last October. I find this very hard to beleive for two reasons:
1) The car has been running fine for months after it was repaired from the accident with no problems.
2) We took the car back to the mechanic who fixed the car after the accident and he couldn't find anything wrong with the harness.
It is really frustrating to be stuck in this position.
Question: does your car have remote start installed?

As you can tell from the title I recently purchased a MDX. Now, I keep hearing a humming noise whenever I take my foot off the accelerator between 40 and 20 MPH. Also, whenever I make a U-turn I hear a humming coming from back of the MDX. Does anyone know what hell is going on? Should this be happening with a luxury vehicle? Hold on. Let me rephrase that. Should this be happening to a BRAND new vehicle?

What does the dealer/service think about your problem?

There is a recall on 2011 Acura MDX for issues with the battery management system. We did not receive a notice from Acura but were having low battery warnings constantly. When we called the dealership we were informed that there is a recall. Just wanted to let you know that some of your problems may be resolved when the dealership fixes that. Our car is having no problems whatsoever now and we love our Acura!!!!

I'm having the same issue. I was also on the freeway when my VSA light came on the brakes just locked. Only with my 2006 Acura MDX, one of my front and one of my rear brakes, aren't working. I had to tow it to the dealership because the brakes just wouldn't engage at all now. If this is going to be a pervading issue, I would say a class action suit is in order.
#2021 of 2050 B1 service cost. 08 MDX
Apr 30, 2012 (8:01 am)
Was wondering what others have paid.
I was quoted $119 + tax for B1 service. This includes tire rotation, oil change, any bolt tigthening, lubrication, parking brake adjustment, e.t.c. I know that i can perform most of the visual inspections myself though if parking brake needs adjustment that i would rather not do. (even though read it's not hard specially if the internal screw needs tightening).
THe cost of A1 service (oil+rotation) is $60 + tax
Thinking to pay the extra $60 for the other stuff to make sure all "recommended" service is done and is on record.
Wondering if the cost is reasonable ?
This is in Dallas area.
#2022 of 2050 Inside lights
Aug 09, 2012 (11:14 am)
Was wondering if anyone also has this issue. I have noticed that on my '05 MDX, the lights that illuminate some of the switches (cruise, fog lamps), seat heaters, homelink, etc are no longer workiing. The switch works, but when ON they do not illuminate the pale green lights.
Is this something I can fix? Where do I even start ordering these bulbs for these switches?
