    Try unlocking the driver's door with the key. On many models, this will reset the security system.

Hooked new battery up, alarm went off, waited until it stopped, locked car with fob then unlocked and the car started.

SOURCE: acura rsx won't shift when it's on, only when off it shifts

This may be a clutch problem or a cluthch slave, what is happening is the transmission is not completely stopped spinning, so as you try to go into gear the clutch is not disengaged completely. this can be due to a bad slave or master.

The fluid for the clutch master, make sure its full. if low then you may have a leak. if low fill and pump pedal a few times to see if that helps.

If clutch master is low or full go to trany and locate the cltuch release fork on the transmission at the end you will see clutch slave, make sure there are no leaks. have someone push clutch pedal as you watch the fork move. make sure it move the distance. if its leaking then its bad.


The last thing would be the clutch pressure plate or disc, this is hard to see without removing transmission, If something broke away from cluch plate and is jammed against plate this will keep traany spinnig, but it would also be hard to get into first.

If you can start car in neutral and put into 1st gear without a problem then thats confusing, but if it is hard to go into first also then its in the clutch system. i am guessing you are in first with clutch down when starting and then its hard to get into other gears. good day.

How do i turn of my airbags on acura rsx


I presume you mean SRS light. You need to find out what the code is. Seat belt buckle failure is common. Honda warranties seat belts for life, so if that's the failure, it is free.

Fuel gauge is always on E and light indicator is on even though tank is full. This is on 2002 rsx type-s.


It will be one of the following (in order of most likely)

Tank float (lost resistance - repair or replace)

Wiring - check connector is clean and good contact

Guage on dash - replace
