Time for service, look in your owners manual for the mileage.  At the very least you are due for an oil change.

Yellow means you need it soon
Red means you ignored the yellow and need it now


If you don't rely on your car to get you places, you can ignore these and do some expensive repairs later.  If it's time for a timing belt and you ignore that,  it might cost $2000-3000 when it breaks.

1999 Acura CL check engine light need to be turned off


if the problem has not benn repaired the light will return, if the problem has been repaired then the light will shut off after a few days of driving, to turn light off now you will need a scan tool or remove battery cable for 10 min, this way you will loose your radio and clock settings. hope this helps, also autozone parts stores will do this at no charge they will even tell you what the codes are.

97 Acura cl abs light on? What does this mean and how to fix


This indicates a problem with the anti-lock brake system, make sure fluid levels are correct, but it is likely that a sensor at one of the wheels has disconnected, causing the light to go on. If you have driven over road debris, snow, ice, etc. something may have damaged a sensor at one of the wheels. Jack up the car and support it to safely go underneath to inspect all 4 wheels at the back sides for damage.

Can get the radio to come on don't know the code and I'm getting an error message


This happened to me. You have to call Acura and fax them a copy of your driver's license & the vehicle registration. You then call them back in 24 hours and they will release the code for your radio. It's a bit of a hassle, but at least you'll know the code!
