 Description of the problemI have researched my problem to find that this is common with the acura. Apparently there was a defect in the audio system that causes the lights on the temperature control panel located in the center dash to go out. The warranty was extended but unfortunately the public was unaware and then when the problem actually occurs it is "too late" to have it covered free of charge and way to expensive for most to afford. No lights work and this is extremely dangerous while trying to adjust temperature or radio while driving. The only thing that lights up is the window on the radio, no buttons. You hear the horror stories of texting while driving well this acura malfunction is just as dangerous. I love my car and with acura's reputation you would think that they would fix the problem. There is a huge number of these cars with this problem out there, the public just is not aware of your website to address safety issues. An investigation to acura owners would be a wise decision. Upon researching this issue on the internet the problem that seems to follow the dash lights not working is the cd player quits. That has now happened with my vehicle and the discs are stuck in the player. This is supposed to be a high end car and it is not fair to the consumer that acura doesn't fix this issue under a safety recall. Afterall, what is more costly a new audio system that supposedly will fix all problems or my death because of a safety issue that acura failed to fix when the knew that far more than a few cars had exact same issue. I have saved all my research and attempts to have the safety issue fixed. Operating this vehicle at night is a huge danger when you can't safely operate the components that came on your car because of this issue. I hope that you may be able to solve many acura owners worst worry... Loss of life while trying to adjust the temperature so you family is comfortable while traveling.
