Product Update: NSX Electronic Power Steering

 Year: 1997 
 Model: NSX 
 VIN Application: See Vehicles Affected

November 1997

Dear NSX Owner:

This is to notify you of a potential problem with your NSX.

What is the problem?

The Electronic Power Steering control unit does a system test during engine start-up. If the steering wheel is moved during this system test, the test is interrupted and the control unit sees it as an error. The EPS indicator on the instrument panel is turned on, and the electronic power steering is disabled. The steering will then feel slightly heavier because of no power assist. This heaviness is noticeable only at parking lot speeds.

Vehicles Affected

Only vehicles within the following VIN ranges are affected: Thru JH4NA…VT000309

What should you do?

Contact your Acura dealer and make an appointment to have your car repaired. They will install an updated EPS control unit. This replacement will be done free of charge. Please plan to leave your car at the dealer for half a day to allow them flexibility in scheduling.

We apologize for any inconvenience this product update may cause you; however, our main concern is the continued trouble-free operation of your Acura. If you have any questions, please call or write:
