  1. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    I have one of the Pioneer AVH units (the 2440NEX to be exact), and this morning, it would not turn on. The buttons at the bottom are illuminated like normal, but the screen is just blank. Weirdest part though, the backup camera still works. It comes on when I stick it in reverse like normal, but...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Here's what I've encountered the past couple of weeks. When I started using my A/C after the winter it would take a while for it to kick in. I had to play around with the settings to get it going and then it eventually does get going. But I also noticed a weird smell coming out of the vents on...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Good evening ClubRSX people! I got my rsx this past November and she has treated me well. I have replaced the passenger side motor mount (working on getting some hasport motor mounts), power steering hose and belt. She's been running well since today... Kind of. I have been driving all day...
  4. Turbo RSX
    I drive a 02 rsx type s boosted on 12psi. 91pump gas. She was driving fine. Then I stopped to fill her up and when I went to drive away she stuttered like she was only running 3 cylinders. But every now now and then she runs fine. Mostly does it in 1st and 2nd gear. Did a compression test the...
  5. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    so today i was driving and all the sudden my clutch just got really really smooth. it was easier to push in, harder to jump with, i can switch gears with practically no revving. my car has never acted this way before and im not sure if i like road the clutch and its about to give out or if...
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I went to the last SCCA SOLO for the year at Qualcomm yesterday in the lovely rain. And everybody got 4 runs, my first run was slow but no issues, second run i could pass 6000 RPMs, figured I was spinning since there were no lights indicating any problems, and on my third run (which ended up...
  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    so the other day when i was messing around with some friends in sport shift mode, i realized that when my rpm needle gets close to redline my car shifts by itself, for example, I'm in 2 nd gear, and my rpm needle hits 6500 it shifts to 3rd than 4th, what could be the problem? i changed the atf...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So last night I got into a couple of races out in the streets (Go ahead judge me) but upon braking at stop lights, my brakes were acting extremely weird. When pressing the brake pedal, it almost seems as though it was working less and less as I braked at different lights, to a point where I...
  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, I got into my car the other day and my A/C was acting very strange. When I turn on the A/C, it works fine for 5-10 seconds blowing cool air, then it turns off and doesn't blow any air out at all. If I leave it on for awhile, it will kick back on a minute later then shut back off...
  10. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hey, there. Few days ago, my transmission suddenly locked itself at Park. I can't move the knob anywhere unless I press the shift lock button. There was no CEL and there was no fault code when the car was diagnosed. I brought it to a wiring shop and after two days, they found out it's a wiring...
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I put Inv mounts on my car (all 4) I got 60 for the main 3 and the grey for the front mount. I didn't have a torque wrench available so I used my breaker bar to the best of my abilities. I have a couple questions, 1) is my car supposed to shake so bad as if its like getting no gas sitting at...
  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have an 02 type s with exhaust and intake last week I installed a rbc intake manifold with adaptor and hondata gasket after installing everything the car ran great and just tonight it started acting up after I hit vtec. Now when you let off the gas it sputters and drops rpms fast and when I...

    Ok guys had a good mechanic install all 4 struts for me and I dropped off my car at firestone to get the allignment done, of course I dropped it off at night and put the keys already in the drop box without locking the car :deadhorse So I pushed real hard on the lock for the driver side door...
  14. Problems & Solutions EP3
    :shakeheadMy starter has been acting funny but it only happens sometimes, usually when the car is cold (Has been going on for two years). Sometimes is stays stuck after the car has already turned on and makes that grinding noise, and sometimes it just won't turn over at all (so far only happened...
  15. The DIY Garage RSX
    OK i just installed a shift light; however the light is coming on with a delay. It has a self adjust RPM dial on the back, so i set it for 8000 RPM, but the light doesn’t show until about 8300 RPM. The obvious solution to this is to turn the dial backward to compensate for the latency, but if...

    Uploaded a map from kmanager and car is acting weird . I DO NOT HAVE THE 02-04 O2 SENSOR. Any other maps I should try?

    Hey guys, I got my ep3 about 2 months ago now, I've dumped so much money into this car between body work and a new clutch and paint so on and so forth... 87000 miles on this car. I went to put a fresh new valve cover on that I painted wrinkle black, slapped that thing on, and replaced the...

  19. General RSX Discussion
    I have a problem with my A/C, whenever I turn on defrost mode I don't seem to get any warm air(defrost works but no warm air coming out), however, when I set it to cold air, it works fine(both defrost and cold air blows). My ac works normally in all of the other modes, just when I put it on...
  20. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey all, I first wanna start out by saying I am a car noob. I have a 2005 type s and I was pulling with someone down the interstate the other day. After we were done fooling around by car seemed extremely sluggish and would not me rev past 4k while driving. I got it home just granny shifting and...
