Anybody have a problem where while lightly accerlate after at a stop light, ,y 2006 TSX hesitates and then a yellow triangle with an exclamation point comes on the dash briefly? It happened twice this week already, once while in light rain, another when it wasn't raining. I never had this problem with other cars. It seems like the tires were moving but the car wasn't. Did something failed? I would hope that my TSX was more stable than to hydroplane in small amount of water.

    What does your manual say the yellow triangle means? That might be a starting point.

    IMHO, you set off the stability control system.

    The yellow triangle indicates you activated the VSA. It shouldn't happen from a start unless you break the front wheels loose. If you're breaking the wheels loose, then it's normal. If not, have it checked out. I suspect you are, seeing how you're driving in wet conditions.

    All dashboard warning lights illuminate followed by all electrical components shutting off and go back on (flicker) - speedometer, sound, headlights, tailights, dashboard lights, interior lights - everything! Has anyone experienced this problem?

    I also have 2004 TSX and just recently got the same problem. Has anyone found a solution? Thanks..

    I found the solution. Check your batter connectors and make sure they are tight and secure.

    I have 2004 Accura TSX and is it true that there is no way to light the text (MENU, INFO, ZOOM, AC etc) for the panel around the navigation screen?

    I found to apply to class action lawsuit regarding alleged manufacturing defects with the AC system.
    Good luck to all.

    Like above on the 2004 tsx, my radio and ac cuts on and off, and my dash lights flicker and now all the warning lights are on on the dash, and my battery cables are tight. Any ideas?

    My 2006 TSX does something similar. After I started the car, emissions system warning light came on, after a minute, the various warning signals kept cycling every 15 second, ABS, VSA, and Brake. Car also stalled a couple of times driving home, had to restart the engine, but the warning lights continued to recycle. Bringing it tomorrow on flatbed. No interest in driving it on the freeway at this point.

    Sounds like it might be the alternator.
