SOURCE: trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL

Look for the end of the wire retainer clip. Unhook it and lift it up. Remember not to touch the bulb. But if you do, just clean it with a bit of alcohol.

btw - Here's a bit of info from a previous post of mine...
The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out. The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to start up.

Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.

If the problem stays on that side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black covers.

If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

SOURCE: starter replacement on acura 2000 TL 3.2

This starter can be changed without disassembling the top of the engine on the 2.5 with automatic transmission. You will need a 10mm, 14 mm, 17mm, and a 9mm wrench. First with any electrical repair disconnect the battery at the negative terminal. The starter is on the driver's side close to the firewall below the intake manifold. Remove the transmission dip stick so you don't ruin it, then look and study the starter itself. You will notice the starter drive housing with a top and bottom bolt. The top bolt is a 14mm and the bottom a 17mm, loosen both a half turn. Remove the top 14mm bolt first, then the bottom 17mm, this will allow you to pull the starter out of the bell housing. With some angling and no brackets holding the back of the starter you should be able to pull it out enough to disconnect the positive wire and 9mm nut from the soleniod. Disconnect the starter ignition small wire by pulling it off it's connector. Now just pull it out of the engine and fender void and you've got it, saving about a hundred and fifty dollars of labor. Take it to the parts house and match it up with a well made remanufactured or new starter. Reverse the proceedure, hook up the battery.

SOURCE: cooling fan for acura tl 2000 does not work

If you can locate the temperature switch, looks like a large bolt head with 2 wires on it, bridge the wires on it, and this should make the fan work. If the fan works then this switch is faulty. If the fan doesn't then it could be the fuse, or a broken wire.
The fan switch is either on the radiator or on the thermostat housing.
If you can get to it easy, short across with a screwdriver.

SOURCE: 2000 acura TL horn blows when replacing the battery

dont you have the alarm key fob? if so that will reset it. just press unlock. If you dont an dits not a OEM Acura alarm you will need to find who makes it and get a new key fob, or have a shop that does alarms to disconnect it.

My acura gets stuck in park it's a 1999


are you on flat ground? are brakes free of ice. and wheel not stuck
against a curb? if on flat ground release hand brake, to make this more easy. if on a hill, say so and post. for answers.

this is a feature,,,, (it's failing.) and runs off brakes.
its called the PARK lock out , feature, most older cars
have bypass port, on the console, new cars this idea is illegal.
this is covered in you operators guide, lost that?
the console has either a hidden or side port, a cover of sorts.
or has a key slot that is for Bypass. All A/T owners must learn to use this , so when this happens you are not stranded, RTM
yes, read the manual, see the page on starting a A/T car?

this is just one fail path there are others.
the shifter release botton.
the tranny dont want to exit park (inside)
the cable is seized.
some have a cable to the ignition switch, that can fail.
if the bypass fails, then post. for steps to isolate true case.

How do i replace/remove the shift lever cover on an automatic 2005 acura tl? It got sticky and now doesn shift into gear well.


All cars have this small opening on the shifter gate. It is always on the left side of the shifter when the shifter is on PARK. Pry that open and insert the car key. That should override the safety switch and let you shift the car off PARK.
