Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

MDX 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


The contact owns a 2015 Acura MDX. The contact stated that the keyless entry system failed. The contact was unable to unlock the doors if the cell phone and keyless fob were in the same location. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times. The technician explained that some cell phones might interfere with the keyless system. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated that this was a known problem with the keyless system. However, they were not able to determine what the proper remedy would be for the failure. The failure mileage was 5,000. Updated 11/09/15 the consumer stated the front doors would not open.

The owner's guide of the vehicle says: "to lock: Press the door lock button on any front (or rear) door handle when the vehicle is off. If the remote transmitter is inside the vehicle, the doors will not lock." But on 5/20/15, after my sister placed her 6 month old baby in the child safety seat in the back of the parked Acura and was ready to drive off, all doors were locked with baby and the remote transmitter inside the vehicle. 911 was called and firefighters broke the front passenger window to save the baby from overheating. I reported the incident to Acura who said it was a normal behavior, even though its owner's guide says the opposite. Acura people said they had a video showing the doors would lock with the remote transmitter inside vehicle, however that was not public information. That makes me wonder - if the remote transmitter can be locked inside a parked vehicle, why do they say "if the remote transmitter is inside the vehicle, the doors will not lock." In the owner's guide? I would think that either they put a wrong statement in the owner guide or they don't want to admit the defective locking system....updated 07/30/15
