  8. Is the starter bad?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    04 RSX base 5-speed. For a while now it has been slow cranking. It would struggle to crank sometimes (take a few attempts) but most times it would be slow, but crank up on the first try. Well I didn't drive it for about 4 days and now it won't start. It will either turn over once slowly and not...

  15. Air Fan intermittently turning off and on after starter replacement?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I recently replaced the starter in my Base 02 RSX. I've noticed that the fan blowing heat out of the vents mostly isn't working. Every now and then it will turn on for a little bit. I've also noticed that my cruise control randomly turns off. I'm assuming I loosened some connection but am unsure...

    Hello everyone, I have an 02 RSX and I am pretty confident my starter took a crap. When I turn the key, I slightly hear it try to turn over just a little, but it fails after that.

  20. Can you identify if this is a starter issue?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi all, My RSX base has had some strange issues lately. This is completely random, the car will start and then sometimes it does not. It sounds like the battery is dead but its brand new, along with a new alternator. Checked them out at Advance Auto and they also stated the starter was fine...
