What does the 2011 Acura RDX code P2263 mean?
I was driving the other day when the check engine light and SH-AWD light illuminated on the dash of my 2011 Acura RDX. I have an OBD scanner, so I plugged it in and it gave me a P2263 code. What does this code mean on a 2011 Acura RDX?
Answer provided by
The PP263 code on your 2011 Acura RDX means that the car has a problem with the turbocharger. The cause of this problem varies, but in a vast majority of cases, wear and tear on a screw on the end of the turbo actuator is the issue.
If you don’t fix this problem, you’ll notice sluggish acceleration and the RDX automatically switching from all-wheel drive to front-wheel drive. The good news is that it’s easy to fix. However, the part itself isn’t available from Acura. Oftentimes, they’ll try to tell you that you need a new turbocharger on your dime, which can cost upwards of $4,000 or $5,000.
The alternative is to hop on eBay and type in 2011 Acura RDX turbo. This should bring up several items called turbo variable flow eye actuator. This is the part you need. Just don’t skimp on the price. Get one in the $30 to $50 range and you should be good to go.
