 Description of the problemThe problem: when it is hot the car start losing power, and vsa light comes up. Then the gauge cluster start doing intermittent shutdowns of the rpm and speedometer gauges. Additional to that, the a/c shut down and blow hot air. Acura diagnostic: john eagle acura had the car to check the problem. During the test in hot temperature, they found there is a problem of ecu communication in the f-can. There are 3 main things that communicate with ecu though the f-can: one is the gauge cluster which i replaced, the second was the vsa modulator which was disconnected to test, and the third one was the radio system that was also disconnected, and the results were the same (damaged). According to acura engineers, after proceeding with all these steps the solution is replacing electronic control unit (ecu). Acura fake recall: last december i took my car to an acura dealer because there was a bulletin for a recall for acura tsx; this recall was about ecu corrosion and it specifically say that it is going to be detailed checked and tested and if any problem was presented it could also be replaced without no cost. Well, what they did was put a piece of plastic cover on top of the ecu to cover the corrosion that the ecu already had, and 4 month later these problems come up. Therefore, i called acura and ask them to make a follow up of this recall and what they answer was that the recall was already done, and they cannot do the recall twice and that they feel really sorry. Conclusion: acura do not want to assume any responsibility for their problems and they want to still hiding problems that they have with their vehicles. Please see attached acura diagnostic. I would really appreciate your help in this matter to avoid other persons getting this horrible experience.
