the srs indicator comes on and stays on when a cell phone or laptop is used inside the vehicle. this hinders the proper operation of the air bags which could result in a needless death to the passenger. the light can only be reset by the dealer which cost $84.00 per hour. after some investigation on the web, it appears that this is not only a problem in the acura rls but also a problem with all acura vehicles (rl, tl, tl-s, rsx and the mdx). there should have been engineering considerations which would have shielded the opds sensors from everyday interferences from laptops and cell phones radio frequencies. please give this matter some attention by contacting the acura corporation and asking for an explanation of what action they intend to take to correct this engineering defect. as with most major corporations, the average consumer has no way of contacting them directly. thanks for your consideration and i look forward to hearing from you. *ak

1) on 10/21/05, i was driving on the fwy at approx. 65 mph and my side curtain & driver seat airbags deployed for no apparent reason. 2) i did not see any debris on the road or feel anything hit my car underneath the frame, however, according to acura and american honda, a frequency sensor detected a loud noise that caused the airbags deploy. it is obvious there is a defect with either the airbag itself or the sensors. 3) tustin acura (in tustin, ca) refused to cover my airbags under my warranty and made me go through my insurance to get it fixed. it is now being considered an at fault "collision" when i didn't see what they say i must have hit and i did not feel or hear any impact. the sensor is obviously too sensitive and therefore it seems to be a defect, but still american honda refuses to cover it. *nm

Baltimore, MD

i'd like to bring to your attention an important public safety issue with acura. their airbags have the potential to deploy spontaneously. this has happened yesterday to me 2/15/2010. i was driving on route 83 in baltimore at around 6am and without any impact or warning, my front and rear driver's side as well as the driver's seat airbags deployed in my 2005 acura tl. i thought someone was shooting or my tire blew out. i immediately got out of the car and checked the car and found nothing wrong, except the air bag damage. it damaged my driver?s seat and interior roof in the front and back. the steering wheel air bag did not deploy, nor did the air bags inflate. the car was drivable, but the seat belt was broken. after settling at work, i place a call to my insurance company and to norris acura (ellicott city, md) where i have my auto service done. the insurance company asked me to contact acura because there may be a manufacturer's defect. acura asked me to bring my car in the next day. they evaluated the car and asked me to contact my insurance company even though there's no physical damage to the car. they insist that i must have hit a pot hole, ice or something. i hit nothing. if that was the case and i hit something, the air bag should have deployed and inflated. they never inflated, they just deployed. the air bag in the steering also never deployed. so if they say that i must have hit something, then the airbags are still defective and would not have protected me in an impact. my car is currently at the dealership now with 3 deployed airbags (driver's side) without any physical damage to the car. i'm not sure what to do. i don't want to have to pay a deductible with my insurance company, if this is a manufacturer's defect. *tr

i was approaching a traffic light in my acura tl 2008 car. as i was pressing the brakes, my driver side air bags deployed. there was no cause that could have triggered the air bags to deploy; my car was not hit in the side, there was no debris on the road, there were no pot holes in the road. the air bags deployed for no reason. i have taken my car to the acura dealership and upon inspecting it they decided that the airbags deployed because of a pot hole, which is not true. *tr
