I entered the VIN of my dec 14 build into the Acura recall website, and it showed no recall...

I had this TSB applied in February 2016 when my transmission was replaced, but looks like there is updated software. Will the dealer automatically update the software or do you have to ask?

I could be wrong, but I don't believe the dealer is required to do any TSB unless you complain about it/request it. Their first question to me is always where I got the TSB. One time, I was told not to believe everything I see on the Internet. Ok, boss. lol.

It may vary by dealer or what recommendations the factory makes, but on my '15 4 cyl, when I went in for the first scheduled service their computer and my receipt showed it was eligible for a TSB, and they applied it (the 8 speed transmission fix).

What are the symptoms for this issue? Hard to tell from the TSB.

Can you translate this to English? Anyone have an example of one of these notifications?

"Clients receive excessive notifications for a low power mode through AcuraLink®"

"Your 2015 Acura TLX has entered low power mode. This could be attributable to a low battery or vehicle inactivity lasting more than 7 days.

Until the ignition is turned on again, AcuraLink features such as Stolen Vehicle Locator and Remote Door Lock/Unlock will not be available. We will send you another message when your AcuraLink system is again operational.

Sincerely,
AcuraLink"

Due for my B1 service, calling tomorrow. Need to find out if we wait till we get stuck with car, or is this TSB being done proactively.

Wow. That's serious. I checked the manufacturer date on mine and thankfully, I am not in the range...

Glad I'll be getting rid of my 15 TLX very soon. The amount of TSBs just keep on piling up, so long for Japanese quality ... Just for reference, the A4 only has 2.

Dont forget that the ZF 9HP is a "German Engineered" transmission.

Yup, was thinking the same. Should have used ZF's excellent 8sp or their own DCT. Stupid decisions but it is what it is, Acura paid the price.

Does anyone know what L4 trim means or what this sound resembles? Now that my engine chirping was fixed, I can hear a faint clicking at idle that almost sounds like a lifter tick. My service advisor said it was normal when I asked about it last month. I'm still not so sure.

L4 isn't a trim, it stands for Inline 4. Also, the ticking you hear at idle is normal for direct injection engines.

Thank you both. I went back to review other I4 TSBs and sure enough they all say L4. Seems like a strange naming convention to me. I4 or K24 or 4-cyl would have been more intuitive. I typically associate "trim" with vehicle package, i.e. Base, Tech or Advance, while the model would be a better place to capture things like I4, V6 and AWD. Semantics perhaps. I never gave it much thought until looking at this TSB.

On the ticking, I know that is inherent to engines, but my TLX is much more pronounced than any other make, model or trim I've ever observed idling. That's why I threw it out there when I saw this TSB. If no one else notices theirs, I'll simply have to get over it!
