problem #3

Apr 162018

TLX Sh Awd A-spec V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,986 miles

Vehicle Stability assist 61-12 ABS may not operate properly... Dealer replaced battery but this seems to be related to the idle engine stop

TLX Sh Awd A-spec V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,670 miles

2nd time Vehicle stability assist 61-12 appeared. Definitely not the battery, dealer tried to charge me as this is apparently a message not a code and Acura only warranty's codes. I told them where to put their invoice.

3rd time same error message 61-12 Vehicle stability assist. We literally left the car with them for a week and opened a case # with Acura. The consensus is that it's related to the idle engine stop causing voltage fluctuations and messing with the battery and draining the power. This is not fun.
