#762 of 804 2004 V8 SRX--Car starts intermittently
Jan 04, 2008 (5:12 am)
Never been on a forum before but this is my last resort. I bought my SRX in July 2007. Since, Nov 2007 the car started intermittently. Jim Coleman Cadillac in Bethesda have replaced the mass air flow system and the alternator. They have checked the started and the fuel pump and they said that it is ok. They finally told us that the problem is the engine harness. They stated that the car had some damaged wires from a previous accident which we had no clue about because it wasn't on the Carfax report. On January 2, 2007, we finally got the car out of the shop (after paying $2500) and low and behold the next day, the car wouldn't start again. This morning, it started up again and so it's back at the dealer today. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what else I should have the dealer check into? BTW, the car was bought from a dealer called Car Spectrum and they do not certify their cars. But that's another story.

I also think those annoying chimes are the reverse warning system.
I find them pretty loud, and think i'm going to disable them.

Disable them? Is that possible? Today I had something behind my car and when I put in reverse the warning lights went on and it did'nt beep. I guess that it goes off when nothing is there.

I think that there should be a 4 on the back end where the SRX emblem is. At least my 2007 has SRX 4 on the back.
After looking on Ebay at some 2004's that are AWD, there does not seem to be a 4 on any of them
However, on mine there is a caution in front of the radiator that says this is an AWD so any testing done needs to use proper equipment...
If you have snow, then you could try to get it stuck and see if all 4 wheels spin

Aside from checking the VIN #, You'll have to do some research on that. Look under the front of the car, check each inside of the front wheels, Do they have the half-shafts or axles coming off the wheels to the center differential? If there are half-shafts present than it is AWD.

Any news on the Sirius SIRGM3-A unit. I have had a loaded SRX for about a month and I love the car, however I can't believe anyone pays for that crappy XM. It is not close to Sirius, not to mention Stern. I need to convert that XM radio to Sirius before I scream!

Look in the RPO list for MX7

That is all well and good if you know where to look for the list of RPO numbers.
The easiest thing is to look under the hood at the front for the caution (a yellow tag) that says this is an AWD vehicle. If that tag is there then it is AWD. One can also check for the drive shafts on the front wheels, but this is somewhat more difficult to do (but not hard). The fun way would be to take it into a snow covered parking lot and try to spin all four wheels....
