This thread is a godsend! I watched the you tube clip on how to access the handsfree link box, and when opened I was surprised how "flimsy" the chip sits inside the box. I snapped the chip in, replaced everything, turned the key in the ignition and INSTANTLY saw the bluetooth connection. The whole process took 20 minutes. Thanks to everyone who posted about this issue and how to fix (for now, anyway).

I have a 2007 TL and I am able to make a phone call by voice command. From the manual for the 2012/13 TL, it looks like that is no longer possible.
Can somebody confirm whether voice commands are no longer available and if the new approach is better or worse than using voice commands.

I have a 2006 Acura TL I have only had since June. One owner well maintained. Looks and smells new. Had HFL all set up then got an oil change last weekend and when driving home and trying to disconnect call it got stuck in the in use mode. Messed with turning the car off and on and it worked. Two days ago HFL doesn't recognize my phone and won't pair. See I am not the only one with the problem. I don't have the $ to replace. Is there a chip or something that can be easily replaced. Has a class action suit been filed yet? I would most definitely like to be a party in that! Dealer wanted over $100 just to take a look. Can't afford that either! HELP
#268 of 308 Acura 2008 Tl HandsFree Link booting issuel
Nov 21, 2012 (5:38 pm)
I have a 2008 Acura TL type s 49,000 KM. this Monday Nov 19 the Hands-Free link stop working (booting up message on the screen). I removed fuse number 7 and 10 and the HandsFree works for 10 minute and died again. I called Acura office and they told me there is no recall about this issue because it is not a safety issue. They told me to take it to the dealer. Last year the HFL drains my battery and I have to pay $250 .
I am not sure how we bring this issue up to government body to force Acura to rectify this issue free of charge.
#269 of 308 Possible Fix?
Nov 22, 2012 (11:32 am)
Have a 2012 Tl wi. a bluetooth connection that does not work after two starts of my car. Was at the dealership for something else, and was told that Acura internally knows there's a problem, and is working on it. I have a iPhone4, and an Apple engineer in their bluetooth area doesn't think it's them (of course), but said it could be. What is interesting is what the service rep told me, since Acura never acknowledged this before.

Please tell me what is the part number for the HFL. Is there an website that has reasonable prices for Acura Car parts? I want a way to determine if a price is reasonable. I know the dealership quoting $800 for replacing the HFL is actually trying to rob me. I can replace the part. I have not been able to find the part number and price in this forum nor via searching the Internet. I appreciate your help.

Add me to the growing list of HFL failures! Lots of insight here...can't wait to hear what my friendly Acura dealer has to say...as if it will be anything different from what I've read here!!
#272 of 308 Problems Pairing 2006 TL with iPhone 4 (IOS 6)
Dec 27, 2012 (9:33 am)
I never had any problems pairing my iPhone 4 with my 2006 TL bluetooth until (I think) Apple pushed out IOS 6. Now, the car cannot find my phone. All of the settings seem to be ok (the phone's blue tooth setting is on, the phone is in discovery mode, etc.).
Any help would be appreciated. Again, I believe that the problem started when Apple upgraded to IOS 6.
