  2. Brake lights not working

    1st Gen - Problems and Fixes
    2005 TSX 6-speed I have read through a bunch of posts, and have not been able to solve it yet. It seems like all of the necessary fuses are in tact. The VSA light is not on, the horn works, and if I hit the brakes while using cruise control, the cruise disengages. Any other potential solutions?
  3. Right turn squeal at 20-40mph

    1st Gen - Problems and Fixes
    A sound like a squealing, whirring, maybe even metal-on-metal occurs during a tight right turn like a circular highway on-ramp or sometimes while turning at an intersection. The sound oscillates, increasing and decreasing in volume, as if it were related to the wheel spinning. Braking might...
  4. Right Turn Squeal

    1st Gen - Car Care, ...
    I'm having trouble finding out exactly how I can check the brake pad wear. I think my brakes are in need of replacement, but like I said, I dunno how to check. Seems simple to just look at how much of the pads are still there, but I'm wondering if there are any specific instructions around. Any...

  8. Better braking performance

    2nd Gen - Suspension, ...
    Let's say, for all intent and purpose, that I enjoy my TSX in its stock state. If I just wanted to add stopping power and not change the wheels, what's the best way to move forward? I don't care for tuner-looks, lowered cars, cambering wheels, or anything like that. I just want my TSX to stop...

  10. Gen 1 Brake Wear

    1st Gen - Suspension, ...
    I have a 2007 TSX with automatic transmission. This car seems to go through brakes ridiculously quickly. My rear brakes lasted 40k miles before needing replacement, and the fronts lasted around 65k if I remember correctly. I feel like the fronts lasted a little less than normal, but the rears...

    I am interested in replacing my front and rear rotors on my 2006 TSX. Can anyone recommend an alternative to OEM factory parts?
