I would that is car back as soon as it came up. I beleive that code is saying that something has been diss-conected, A customer Honda came in with a code almost the same, after a week or to of trying to figure it out I called the customer, He told me his son wanted to change the dash lights, unfortunatly he disconnected the odometer. well to make a long story short, Manufacters have put in a "saftey" if something is dis-conneted that will change something ie: odometer, a code come up so as to alert you (being a pontental buyer that something is amiss). Take the car back and get tham to look over there work. This could be something as a lose connector. They will (should) be able to reset it. Best of luck, hope this helps.

You probably got it by now but if not contact Acura with your VIN # for your reset code (will not find it in your manual)

I have the code but when I tried to type it in, I messed up a number and now it says err-3 and won't let me try again.

you need to unplug the battery and only put in the code when it says code not Err-3.. err-3 means you tried too many times the wrong code!
