    Something is draining my battery. I narrowed it down to fuse number 9 under the hood. I unplugged the radio, amplifier, immobilizer control unit, gauge cluster, and the keyless receiver unit and I'm still getting a draw ?? does anyone have an idea as to what it might be. Thank you

    I read the whole guide step by step and I went ahead and started the job. i jacked the car up and looked on the driver's side of my transmission. I absolutely could not find a fill bolt or a drain bolt on that side near my axle. There are instead tiny 14mm bolts which seem to be holding the...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    After a transmission fluid change and oil change (that I performed myself) I noticed that my speedometer didn't work. I opened my hood and realized the VSS plug wasn't plugged in (it was bolted in however, just not plugged in) but the speedometer still doesn't work. We swapped out the VSS for...

    I have a stock 2003 RSX (not Type-S) and my battery keeps draining while the car is off. It is a very small drain, however it is periodically requiring me to jump the car to get it started.

  17. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    So I went to the dealer to bitch and complain about the infamous 2nd and 3rd gear grind since I only have 64,000. Of course the first thing the guys says is change the transmission fluid and since I was already there and didn't feel like doing it myself I got it done there. Fast forward, I ask...
