Hybrid vehicles can vary — a lot. Some are named "hybrids" because they rely on battery power to propel or assist in propelling the vehicle. A hybrid vehicle might plug-in to charge, and some hybrids have regenerative braking. Some hybrids even come equipped with a conventional 12-volt battery and a high-voltage battery.

High voltage cable inspection: Your technician will visually inspect the outer cable jackets and connectors on your 2016 RLX and check to make sure no high voltage energy is transferring to the chassis. They'll let you know if the cable needs replacement.

Isolation test: For this test, a technician uses a special tool to see if any high voltage parts are "leaking" electric energy to the chassis.

Remove and replace hybrid electric battery: Is your Acura RLX's high voltage battery a goner? Let us install a new one.
