SOURCE: changed battery of my 2002 acura mdx, need codes for radio nav

You need to get the serial number off the sticker attached to the radio and nav. It will require pulling apart your dash. Call an Acura dealership with that serial number and they should be able to provide you the code. Or you can take it directly to the dealer but you will be charged labor.

SOURCE: 2002 Acura MDX. AT TEMP light came on and and

The Drivers side is the LEFT ....you mean Left tire correct? Your Automatic Trans was overheated. WHY??? who knows, but its not good. Start by checking the ATF fluid level, and the engine coolant. Were you driving hard? fast? up a mountain? off road? was the engine overheated? I woul dhave it checked ASAP, you may already have damaged something.

SOURCE: 2002 chevy silverado starts right

By what your stating, that it starts and dies every time, It seems to be fuel related. You need to perform a fuel pressure check. You will need a pressure tester, one that would at least be able to read pressure to a maximum of 150 lbs of pressure. Although you really only need about 50-60 pounds of pressure to maintain proper fuel injector operation. There is a test port located on the fuel rail where you would conect the pressure tester. The test port is usually located on the drivers side of the engine near the rear section coming up from the firewall. Unscrew the pressure port cap if its still there and connect your tester. But also keep in mind you may have fuel pressure of some sort in the rail so be careful. While the tester is screwed to the test port you want to cycle the ignition key on and read pressure, you may want to repeat this several times. You must have at least 50 pounds of pressure, if so it should start. If you are losing pressure while your maintaining a visual check on the tester it could also be a faulty pressure regulator/fuel pump or even a rubber hose connection inside the fuel tank that connects the fuel pump to the fuel line. If you have any questions Im here to help. Thanks for using FIXYA

My 2002 Acura MDX acts like its starting when I turn the key, it is putting roughly, but dies as soon as I let go of the key.


It could be a number of things from head gasket to fuel pump, unfortunately it will have to be checked out to determine the exact issue.

My acura 2002 MDX does not start nor crank... I see red light is blinking( security system)


you more then likely have an anti theft device, trying putting a flasher on either left or right and try, due all the dash gauges light up when you put the key to the on position? you can try unplugging battery and replugging it, ensure you have the radio code for stock radio before doing so.

Your Hands Free Link unit has probably died. It's in the compartment above the rear view mirror where the front cabin lights are. They cost a couple hundred bucks and aren't too hard to swap out (there are a couple good videos on youtube detailing the procedure).

This could be a blockage in the carburator,try to clean it, especially the valves. There is a specific spray for the job on the market. You might need to dismantle it.

Main computer problem...starts briefly but will not run


Sounds like a bad install and the wiring might be crossed. But as they stated, without schematics, it's hard to know which wire is which. Acura should cooperated if the Honda dealer is authorized. Mention "small claims court" and see how fast they cooperate. BTW, the MDX and Pilot share alot of the schematics. i don't know why Honda can't play with it. I believe they don't want the liability.
