Go to any Kragen auto or auto zone and ask them to check your engine trouble codes,(that is why the light is on), also ask them to clear them after you write down the codes they retrieve from the computers memory, be advised the system will turn the light back on in a few days if the problem that turned it on in the 1st place is not fixed.

The tcs light and the check engine light came on my 99 acura 3.2 tl


On permanently on mine ... I was told to ignore it since it was detecting carbon levels or something to that effect and since it was so old that the light would keep on coming back on unless I changed something else which would be very expensive ... so I chose to live with the light on. (I just hope nothing else happens which would have notified me that something was amiss ;^)

Check Engine light on Acura TL 3.2 1999


You can turn off the Check Engine light by either disconnecting the battery or by using a code reader to clear the codes. However, if the problem still exists it will come right back on. Instead you should get the code read, find out what the problem is, and fix it. Your local autozone or checker auto parts store will read them for free.

How do I turn off my check engine light on my Acura TL 99


To turn off the check engine light you have to 1.) Have a scan tool capable of reading your cars computer that has an option to clear any codes stored, or 2.) find out what is causing the check engine light to come on and make repairs.

Even if you clear the code which will turn off the check engine light, and there is a persistent issue, then the check engine light will come back on.

Your best bet is to take it to an auto parts store like Autozone and have them use their scan tool to retrieve the stored code and tell you what it indicates. If that information is not helpful to you then post up the code here and I will see what I can come up with for you.

99 TL engine roars and shakes when pressing on gas.


a flashing chack engine light means you have a catalyst damaging misfire the tcs light comes on because this system will not function with certain codes stored for the engine or trans. knowing that you have a misfire you very well could have a bent valve the question is why. have someone check the engine timing incase the timing belt tensioner has failed. i have seen this happen on the 3.2 before or a burnt exhaust valve . as far as the distributor goes the 99 tl does not have one it has cop (coil on plug ignition) . this means you have a seperate coil on top of every plug one of these could have failed check the code to see if the problem is isolated to 1 cylinder rhen start looking at that one and you better hurry that light flashing means you will damage the catalitic converter if the car continues to skip good luck and i hope this helps you.
