Acura TSX - 2008 Fuse Box Diagram

Acura TSX - 2008 Fuse Box Diagram

ʵ
If the driver’s
window senses any obstacle while it
is closing automatically, it will
reverse direction, and then stop. To
close the window, remove the
obstacle, then use the window switch
again.
Auto reverse stops sensing when the
window is almost closed. You should
always check that all passengers and
objects are away from the window
before closing it.
The power window system has a key-
off delay function. The windows will
still operate for up to 10 minutes
after you turn off the ignition switch.
Opening either front door cancels
the delay function. You must turn
the ignition switch to the ON (II)
position again before you can raise
or lower the windows.
If the power windows do not operate
properly after resetting, have your
vehicle checked by your dealer.
Pull and hold the driver’s window
switch to close the window
completely, then hold the switch
for about 2 seconds.
Start the engine. Push down and
hold the driver’s window switch
until the window is fully open.
If your vehicle’s battery is
disconnected or goes dead, or the
driver’s window fuse is removed, the
AUTO function may be disabled. If
this happens, the power window
system will need to be reset after
reconnecting the battery or installing
the fuse.

The preset frequencies may be lost if
your vehicle’s battery goes dead, is
disconnected, or the radio fuse is
removed.
Repeat steps 1 through 3 to store a
total of six stations on AM and
twelve stations on FM.
Pick the preset number (1
6)
you want for that station. Press
the button or icon and hold it until
you hear a beep.
Each preset button or icon
can store one frequency on AM, and
two frequencies on FM.
Select the desired band, AM or
FM. FM1 and FM2 let you store
two frequencies with each preset
button or icon.
To use the SCAN, preset and A.SEL
function, press the AUDIO button to
view these icons.
The SCAN function
samples all stations with strong
signals on the selected band. To
activate it, press the SCAN button, or
touch the SCAN icon (models with
navigation system), then release it.
You will see SCAN in the display.
The system will scan for a station
with a strong signal. When it finds
one, it will stop and play that station
for about 5 seconds.
If you do nothing, the system will
then scan for the next strong station
and play it for 5 seconds. When it
plays a station you want to listen to,
press the SCAN button or touch the
SCAN icon again.
Use the TUNE, SEEK, or SCAN
function to tune the radio to a
desired station.

When you turn the ignition switch to
the START (III) position, you do not
hear the normal noise of the engine
trying to start. You may hear a
clicking sound, a series of clicks, or
nothing at all.
Diagnosing why the engine won’t
start falls into two areas, depending
on what you hear when you turn the
ignition switch to the START (III)
position:
Check these things:
Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position. Turn on the
headlights, and check their
brightness. If the headlights are
very dim or do not come on at all,
the battery is discharged. See
on page
.
Check the transmission interlock.
If you have a manual transmission,
the clutch pedal must be pushed
all the way to the floor or the
starter will not operate. With an
automatic transmission, it must be
in Park or neutral.
Turn the ignition switch to the
START (III) position. If the
headlights do not dim, check the
condition of the fuses. If the fuses
are OK, there is probably
something wrong with the
electrical circuit for the ignition
switch or starter motor. You will
need a qualified technician to
determine the problem. See
on page
.
If the headlights dim noticeably or
go out when you try to start the
engine, either the battery is
discharged or the connections are
corroded. Check the condition of the
battery and terminal connections
(see page
). You can then try
jump starting the vehicle from a
booster battery (see page
).
You can hear the starter motor
operating normally, or the starter
motor sounds like it is spinning
faster than normal, but the engine
does not start up and run.
You hear nothing, or almost
nothing. The engine’s starter
motor does not operate at all, or
operates very slowly.

In this case, the starter motor’s
speed sounds normal, or even faster
than normal, when you turn the
ignition switch to the START (III)
position, but the engine does not run.
Do you have fuel? Check the fuel
gauge; the low fuel indicator may
not be working.
There may be an electrical
problem, such as no power to the
fuel pump. Check all the fuses
(see page
).
If you find nothing wrong, you will
need a qualified technician to find
the problem. See
on page
.
Are you using the proper starting
procedure? Refer to
on page
.
Are you using a properly coded
key? An improperly coded key will
cause the immobilizer system
indicator in the instrument panel
to blink rapidly (see page
).

Use a screwdriver or coin to
remove the round plug in the
center of the headliner.
Insert the moonroof wrench into
the socket behind this plug. Turn
the wrench until the moonroof is
fully closed.
Remove the wrench. Reinstall the
round plug.
If you need to close the moonroof
manually, it means the moonroof
opening/closing function is
developing a problem. Have your
vehicle checked by your dealer.
If the electric motor will not close
the moonroof, do the following:
Check the fuse for the moonroof
motor (see page
). If the fuse
is blown, replace it with one of the
same or lower rating.
Try closing the moonroof. If the
new fuse blows immediately or the
moonroof motor still does not
operate, you can close the
moonroof manually.
Get the moonroof wrench out of
the tool kit in the trunk.

The interior fuse box is on the
driver’s lower left side. To remove
the fuse box lid, pull it toward you
and take it out of its hinges.
The under-hood fuse box is located
near the back of the engine compart-
ment on the driver’s side. To open it,
push the tabs as shown.
Turn the ignition switch to the
LOCK (0) position. Make sure the
headlights and all other
accessories are off.
Remove the cover from the fuse
box.
If something electrical in your
vehicle stops working, the first thing
you should check for is a blown fuse.
Determine from the chart on pages
and
, or the diagram on the
fuse box lid, which fuse or fuses
control that device. Check those
fuses first, but check all the fuses
before deciding that a blown fuse is
the cause. Replace any blown fuses,
and check if the device works.

Check the smaller fuses in the
under-hood fuse box and all the
fuses in the interior fuse box by
pulling out each one with the fuse
puller provided in the under-hood
fuse box.
Check each of the large fuses in
the under-hood fuse box by
looking through the side window
at the wire inside. Remove the
screws with a Phillips-head
screwdriver.
Look for a blown wire inside the
fuse. If it is blown, replace the fuse
with one of the spare fuses of the
same rating or lower.

If you cannot drive the vehicle
without fixing the problem, and you
do not have a spare fuse, take a fuse
of the same rating or a lower rating
from one of the other circuits with
the fuse puller provided in the under-
hood fuse box. Make sure you can
do without that circuit temporarily
(such as the accessory power socket
or radio).
If you replace the blown fuse with a
spare fuse that has a lower rating, it
might blow out again. This does not
indicate anything wrong. Replace the
fuse with one of the correct rating as
soon as you can.
If the replacement fuse of the
same rating blows in a short time,
there is probably a serious
electrical problem with your
vehicle. Leave the blown fuse in
that circuit, and have your vehicle
checked by a qualified technician.
If the radio fuse is removed, the
audio system will disable itself. The
next time you turn on the radio you
will see ‘‘CODE’’ in the frequency
display. Use the preset buttons to
enter the five-digit code (see page
).
If the driver’s power window fuse is
removed, the AUTO function of the
driver’s window may be disabled.
You should reset the AUTO feature,
(see page
).

Replacing a fuse with one that has a
higher rating greatly increases the
chances of damaging the electrical
system. If you do not have a
replacement fuse with the proper rating
for the circuit, install one with a lower
rating.
