Asked by Samshow Apr 16, 2013 at 02:22 AM about the 2006 Acura RL AWD w/ Navigation + Tech Pkg

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My RL (2005) AC does not come on.  When AC button is pushed, a message that "Engine should be running before putting AC on" come up

1 Answer

Not Active

Apparently the system does not know the engine is running to send you that message. I would start by checking all fuses. And if you care to look at : there is one guy that had a similar problem and wrote: Make sure you contact Acura right away. I had mine go out and Acura knows that it happens on the 05 and 06, they reimbursed me for the full amount labor and parts, which was $426. I love their customer service' The RL is the best car I ever got. I am the 2nd owner on mine and Acura did not care they still paid for my repair.
