    Hello everyone. On my '04 RSX Base, are the cruise control buttons located on the steering wheel supposed to light up when you turn the headlights on, or do they only light up when you hit the master "Cruise" button on the dash when the headlights are on?

  4. Cruise Control troubleshooting

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have looked at the online manuals and I have seen the schematic for the RSX cruise control.

Just curious if this is normal because the diagram on "acurapartswarehouse" under "Engine/VTC Oil Control...
