2015 MDX: TQI INFORMATION


Under-Hood (Engine Cold)


5. Check the Battery


To ensure long battery life and that the client gets a fully charged battery, it must be checked at these times:


l When the vehicle first arrives at the dealership l During the TQI, if done at a later date l At regular intervals


l  Just before vehicle delivery


Test the battery with the ED-18 battery tester using S/B 88-016, Battery Testing and Replacement. If the test results show GR8 DIAGNOSTIC NEEDED, you must charge the battery with the GR8 battery diagnostic station.


Write down the GOOD BATTERY 10-digit code in the maintenance journal. During the TQI, write down the code in the "Under Hood (Engine Cold)" section. Then, at vehicle delivery, write it down in the "Final Inspection (At Delivery)" section.


NOTE: Make sure the ED-18 has the latest software installed before using


it. See Service Bulletin 09-034, GR8 Battery Diagnostic Station Update Information.


Vehicle Exterior (Vehicle Raised to Full Height)


  1. Install the Body Plugs


Install the body plugs on each side of the vehicle as shown.

The upper and lower shields on the front grille have a dark silver satin plating. Remove fingerprints and other residue using just a common spray-on glass cleaner or mild soap.


Vehicle Exterior (Vehicle Lowered to Ground)


  1. Set the Tire Pressures


To prevent flat spots during vehicle shipping and storage, the tires are inflated to over 40 psi. Adjust the tire pressures to the cold inflation values listed on the driver's doorjamb label. If you are in a cold climate region, make sure the tires are at the outside ambient temperature before adjusting the pressures; otherwise, the Low Tire Pressure/TPMS indicator may come on in cold weather. Be sure to also check the pressure in the spare tire (if equipped).

  1. Install the batteries into the wireless headphones. Each headphone uses one battery that you insert under the cover of the left earpiece. To remove the battery cover, place a coin in the slot and twist it slightly. The remote uses three BR3032 batteries that are already installed.


  1. To use the headphones, pivot the earpieces outward to turn them on. When you remove the headphones, the earpieces pivot inward and the headphones turn off. Store the headphones in the flat (off) position.


  1. Turn the ignition to ACCESSORY or ON, then insert a DVD into the DVD player. Open
