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.

2004 Acura TSX Owner Comments

TSX Inline V4

Quite annoying especially when its dark out. Have been reading that this issue had a recall and was even extended but my issue just started and I did not own the car before the recall time expired. Any help with a DIY fix would be greatly appreciated or knowledge of Acura covering repair costs well beyond the recall would be a great help

So a couple years ago I spent about $300 to have the circuit board replaced in my stereo by the dealer. As I was told that was the issue for the center console lights going out. Not to mention, because of the mileage at the time, I had surpassed the warranty. Which I cannot understand, being that this a well known issue for the 2004 Acura TSX. Anyway, after about a year and a half later, the center console lights are doing the same symptoms: flickering lights in center console and sparatically going out completely. So I am very aggravated with this happening, I have had this car 9 years and love it besides this stupid light episodes. Why won't Acura use this issue that they are fully aware of, create a recall and the mileage on the vehicle should not void any warranty. This is so annoying!
