P2279 Acura

Fix code P2279 Intake Air System Leak Acura

If you encounter this P2279 Acura trouble code, especially after cleaning the throttle body, you must do an idle relearn procedure. Make sure the throttle plates are clean and the port to the MAP sensor is clean.

1. Then remove the negative battery cable for MORE than 10 minutes.
2. Start the engine with all electrical loads turned off. That means NO A/C, blower, radio, wipers, etc. Hold the RPM at 3,000 until the cooling fans come on.
3. Release the throttle and let the engine idle normally for 5 minutes. If the cooling fans come on during this time, ADD their running time to the 5 minutes.
4. Turn off ignition
