  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi guys! I'm seeing this question come up every once in a while - but haven't been able to find a good answer or a step-by-step solution thang... Changed the starter motor on the car. Took the air box off, took the manifold off, all went together reasonably easily - don't remember stressing or...

  9. Part Outs RSX
    This is a remanufactured Bosch starter. I purchased it for my 05 RSX-S, but ended up departing with the RSX before I would install. I looked up the part number and it says it will work on all years, including base model. Below are pictures and a link with more information on the part. I am...

    I understand this is not directly an RSX issue but I thought I'd post here in case by chance it would be. I have a 2002 RSX premium with manual trans and there is a 2-way autostart remote starter installed. It worked last winter but is not working now. The process to arm the remote starting...

    * Starter and knock sensor are right next to each other, so the work to get to them is the same. My check engine light had come on in my '02 Base auto, so I went straight to AutoZone for a free code scan... My car otherwise ran perfectly. A bad knock sensor is supposed to throw you into a...

    I bought a RSX with a very messy wring job and in the proccess of cleaning all the wiring up I thought it would be a good idea to remove the remote starter that was pretty well useless after cutting through about 10 different wires and getting rid of everything I went to go start the car and all...

    Got a new battery and the car still won't turn on. So its most likely a starter problem. Is it better to get an OEM starter or will other brands work well and if they do which ones are the best and where do i get it??

    i know its not a k20 but ya.. So went to do the initial fire on a built b16 yesterday and all i got was rapid clicking from the starter solenoid. Double checked all grounds, and swapped a known good battery out of the rsx. Same thing happened. Messed with connections again made sure they were...
