Ok, I have the new part numbers, the ones listed previously (A11) are for the original fuse box. These are the new fuse boxes with the new multiplex controller for the all door unlock feature. They are available but supplies are limited at the moment. When I just ordered mine there were only 4 of them available from the regional parts distribution warehouse. You can get them for $20 from H&A, CollegeHills, your dealer and alike.

RT use part number 38200-SJC-A02
RTS & RTL use part number 38200-SJC-A12

If you're going to install it yourself see page 22-74 in the service manual. Appears Honda is going to charge for the part and install but you may be able to sweet talk your Distric Service Manager into a goodwill install.

The TSB will be released shortly, it's being written up today but takes a little while for review and dissemination into the IN network dealers access.

Actually you said A11 in your post. Might want to call your guy and double check the right A12 part is coming.
You're right it is A11 and it's a fuse box for the RTS/RTL according to the postcard I have from the dealer...

I have to take mine in next week (Beaverton Honda) to have the windshield cowling replaced. I'm going to see if they will replace mine free. If you want to wait Web I will let you know if I was successful.

Thanks, mayfielh. I'm in no hurry. I don't get "the look" from the passenger seat. :)

Make sure you check to see if your warranty is still good if you make the change. Honda says it will not honor module warranties if the parts are replaced. Even if your current module would go bad, it would be replaced with the old one (driver only). Just make sure you ask first. I would not want to be on the hook for any electrical issues not covered under warranty as they can be $$$$$$$$$$$!!!!!!!!

This is some good info dboz. I would not want to do anything that would void coverage either.

I just ordered the part from College Hills Honda. I used the number for the RTL in the original post. It's $20 but they highly recommend have the dealer install it. They said they had a guy try to install himself and messed a bunch of stuff up and it was costing severall hundred to fix.

On a side note, they don't have the ipod adapter in yet.

I ordered this part today from my dealership - Marysville Honda. I was able to use the ROC at their shop to find the part number for the fuse panel. They don't have an accurate cost for installation, but estimate it to be $180-$200 @ $72/hr. I do get "The Look" from the passenger side of my truck. So for me, it is worth it. The part is currently on backorder, and not expected until Mid February, at the earliest (there is not much confidence in this date, however).

Has there been any word on a TSB for this? One of the parts people at Marysville Honda also has a RL and ordered the module as well today (he's been on here, but not lately, so didn't know that there was a fix in place).
