  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have looked at the online manuals and I have seen the schematic for the RSX cruise control. I don't want to just start throwing parts at the car but I am not sure the best way to confirm that the actuator is bad. I have checked all the fuses and my hunch is that the actuator is what quit but...

    Srs codes are 9-2 9-6 1-4 Where should I start? Could the air bad module be bad? The srs unit? Or is there something easier I could do to check?
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've run a search and found numerous issues related to gear selection, but I haven't found a step-by-step, soup to nuts troubleshooting process.

    Hi all, I know the CEL is a popular topic, and maybe this exact case has been covered before, but here goes my story: Car is a 2003 base auto, with a type S exhaust manifold, cat and type s exhaust (oem).

    I had a problem with my XenonDepot HID's yesterday, but it went away. Well, what goes away by itself, comes back by itself, so I want to be a little proactive in my troubleshooting. The system was installed by the previous owner, and he didn't do a very good job installing anything as far as I...
  10. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    So I went to install my Skunk alpha header last night and man was it a bitch to install. Once I finally got the thing to fit, one of the bolts on the far side (a2rea that bolts to the engine) would not thread. I tried untorquing all the other bolts/nuts and it still would not thread. Before...

    When I bought my RSX, it came with a jacked up HID job. Basically, when you first turn on the headlights, the drivers side light gets really bright, then goes out. Sometimes it comes on and flickers, then goes out after 5-20 minutes of driving. After some dis assembly and testing, I have...
