So what are you asking us for? you aren't planning to figure it out or do anything about it on your own
then why waste our time? I guess let us know what they find.

The purpose of this thread is to document what I'm going through with the vehicle.


If anything goes wrong, I post about it here pretty much immediately.


As of now, all is working like normal...


I'm trying to gather ideas because no one knows how to work on this thing... Even the dealer messes up occasionally..


If I can get some other RDX owners that have had similar issues in here and post about it, I may be able to "get closer" to solving the problem so that I can help guide it to a proper repair.


Like the window actuators... I knew that was the problem, yet the dealer was all like, "It's thw motor and regulator"...

Many other RDX owners have reported window actuator issues and this is how I can pretty much confirm my suspensions...

I'll tell the dealer to check the main grounds...


J, didn't this happen to your TL-S?

but what's the point, you're not a mechanic. Let the mechanics figure it out.
This isn't documenting, this is you having an issue and asking a question
You just stated you would do nothing with the responses.

Yes, my TL-S had a ground issue due to previous owner replacing the oem ground with speaker
grade wiring.

I think I may have found the problem...https://acurazine.com/forums/1g-rdx-...-start-680923/

I'm experiencing a CEL/Transmission light for the range sensor....

Maybe this is "along" the lines of nuetral safety switch?

It started after the tow, just like the guy in this thread I liked...

If it fails to start again, I'll push the shift interlock button or run the shifter from P-S back and forth a few times to agitate the connection and *hopefully* get it to work...

But the linked thread is my exact issue.

To do list.

1. Address Range Sensor issue.
2. Address A/C issue
3. Change engine oil
4. Get tires

The dealer ordered a range sensor to have in stock if I need it.


Will have that and all of the following addresses next Wednesday.

At the dealer now, waiting on all of the maintenance and a tire quote. I got another tore quote for Michelin Premiers for $986 out of the door, but I perfer my dealer to do it since I will also be getting an alignment there...


I also licked a pole in the back passenger corner nothing scratch out can't fix!

I keep buying Brigestone Turanza Serenity Plus for the same amount of money out of the door which last time lasted me more than 70K miles last time. excellent tire.

My current Bridgestone Duhlers have lasted me about 90K miles... They were almost new when I bought the RDX with 175K miles three years ago, but I did have to replace one tire at 180K because of a nail in the inner sidewall.

They're OK, but don't really grip enough for the vehicle...


I hope to get about the same out of the Michelins... I mainly drive highway....

I would go with what you know. OEM michelines were the worst, only got 25k miles out of them.

I know... I'm not getting the MXM4 or whatever that is....


The Premiers are highly rated and rate for an average life of about 60K miles.....


The A/C issue was the relay, or atleast we're 90% sure! Should be good!


Also having the O-Ring in the steering replaced "finally" to fix the humming pump I've had simce I got the RDX... Walker Acura told me it was the rack AND the pump, they're full of BS there!


I had a bad belt tensioner I didn't know about, did that too...


Also, replaced the range sensor.... Waiting on the wash now... It's dirty, taking them a while!


Also... My battery terminal IS good! It's corroded because the 100 month battery from Walker Acura from 2017 is leaking acid... They cleaned it, but I hope to have that battery replaced... The receipt faded, so we'll see how that goes...


Otherwise, all looks good!
