3 Answers

Bizarre car my acura legend ls 1989 model will not start up, I have replaced to starter,the altanator,battery and had a $69 fuel service done plus the deluxe oil change and new front breaks....need i continue too many things to mention? I am at a loss, it may be a main relay problem,cilinoid or other electrical problem what are my options to narrow the field? I am stressed over it and have limited options, the symtoms are as follows if there is a light on the dash it comes on! (Batery+ -, Check Engine, System Check, Break, Anti-lock)whew! it seems there IS NO fire going to coil and or distributor and both have been check and are fine, according to word of mouth based on being looked at.

Make sure you try putting in a new main relay. You install in under the dash to the left of the steering wheel.

Have you checked the ignition to the starter plug?
With all those hands under the hood it may have simply become unplugged. This happened to my 87 Acura.

1989 acura legend will not crank over after replacing alternator and battery


May not have been the alternator , check the main relay module , may need to re solder the connections. Its under the dash on the left side
of the steering column , its a little hard to see and get out but the connections often burn through the solder and present problems such as this that mimic a fuel supply problem .

My 89 acura legend will not start it makes no noise when i try to start it it doesnt make any sound when i try to start it i checked all my fuses there all fine i pulled out my starter and had it checked...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

I strongly suggest that you check or replace the positive cable going to the starter. It can be broken inside that's why there's no current going to the starter. I believe you'll be good after.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My 93 acura legend wont start. Ticking sound??


That sounds like a dead battery. The ticking sound is the relay (a type of switch) which enables power to the starter motor when you turn the key. If the battery is weak, the relay will click, but there is not enough power to turn the starter motor.

Radio code


Remove the radio and write down the SERIAL NUMBER and MODEL NUMBER. Go to your nearest Acura dealer with those numbers.

Which fuse causes the car not to start?


There is no fuse that would keep the car from starting...

Check your battery 1st to make sure you have enough power to turn your starter over. Your battery may need a charge or may need replacement.

Next, check the cables and connections to the starter solenoid to make sure they are not damaged and are securely fastened.

If you hear a click,click,click, it indicates your starter solenoid is bad and needs replacement.

My 89 Legend coupe 2.7 wont start


1st- find the short. If the previous owner said there is a short under the seat , look for it and repair it.
2nd -after repair check your charging system and battery to make sure its up to specs.

Note: I gather the under seat wiring is for seat control, maybe you could unplug it and see if the battery and alternater work ok. If it does and you can't repair wiring perhaps you can get a replacement wiring harness for that section( seat control?)

Good luck
