  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Gonna TRY to keep it simple. I'm guessing a grounding issue but..... • Passenger high beam headlight wasn't working. • Pulled light, looked good & voltage meter ohms showed good • Checked power from connector = voltage meter moved - but just barely. • Looked at wiring, no obvious...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi Guys, I'm new to the RSX community and I recently purchased an 06 Automatic RSX (Don't roast me :/ ) in the past month or two. Long story short, I had a kill switch installed when I first got it. Last night a friend and I decided to tuck it into the center console because it was just...

    Start the car up this morning (started like usual) and I noticed that the headlights were flickering. Then I noticed on the dash that the airbag light was on, and in the upper slightly left of the dash an indicator light was faintly flashing (I think it was the high beam light). Turn off the...
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    recently purchased a base RSX and when driving it at night for the first time I noticed that all the exterior lights pulse very subtly. Not a huge amount but if you're next to the garage door with your headlights on you can see a slight pulse in intensity. Stops when only under battery power...

  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    '02 RSX Type-S doesn't feel well, multiple symptoms. In order of importance, 1. DTC 5-1 on SRS. The manual says check the battery/system voltage before replacing SRS control unit, which makes me remember of 2. Weird door lock behavior. An attempt to lock or unlock the doors with either a...

Checked ohm between hot side of battery and engine ground, and sure enough, dead short. wtf. figured that the big positive wire to the...

  17. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Today my turn signals (left, right, and hazards) have started to emit an electrical buzz intermittently during the normal blinker sounds (it sometimes buzzes during the clicks but then will stop). It's a high-pitch sound coming from the instrument cluster, and definitely new. Has anyone...

    I need your help. My car won't start. New battery and alternator, both of which were tested. When I turn the key I just get a constant click click click. But if I jump it starts right up. After I disconnect the jumper cables the battery constantly drains. After a couple mins the radio goes out...
