  7. Battery drain stops when I pull hazard fuse or seatbelt fuse

    Integra
    Got a weird issue with my '90 Integra. Battery drains faster than it should. With key out of ignition it draws about 220ma. If I pull the hazard fuse or the "Passive Motor R" fuse (used for automatic seatbelts) the current drops to normal range (about 20-40ma). This makes no sense to me. I'm...
  8. fan running an hour after use, engine is cool

    3rd Gen TL

  11. Do I have a lemon?

    MDX
    :mad: All, I am trying to figure if my wife's MDX is a lemon or if the dealers who checked the car thus far are incompetent. We bought a 2008 MDX in November of 2008 and since then the car failed to start at least 10 times due to a dead battery. Typically, my wife would try to start the car...
