It also cuts power to the airbags and the seat belt tensioners, though these pyrotechnic devices have up to a 3-minute deactivation time. To prevent accidental restarting, you must remove the keyless remote from the vehicle and move it at least 20 feet away. If you cannot locate the keyless remote, you should also do the SECOND-BEST METHOD for high-voltage shutdown (for preventing high-voltage current flow). Cutting the negative 12-volt battery cable and cutting the DC to DC converter cable turns off the gasoline engine and immediately shuts down the high-voltage system controllers, thereby preventing current flow into the high-voltage cables.
The frame of the Acura NSX is comprised mostly of aluminum however, high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel is used in the colored areas. The body panels are comprised of various materials such as aluminum, plastic, and other composites.
