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 acura tl wont start. Replaced Nuetral safety switch, but still won't start. Lights work on dash, and head lights are bright. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Have you done the testing at the starter wiring your not receiving hot to the solenoid circuit on the starter when the key is turned over? Place a test light on the connector for solenoid hot and have some one turn the key if it lights check for constant voltage on the large wire connection from the battery to the starter. If that's all working your starter is bad.

Hi. I do not get any heat from my 99 Acura TL. Fan and a/c working fine.


Check coolant level in coolant reservior. Also with the engine cold, remove the radiator cap and check coolant level. it should be full.
If you fluid levels are full have your mechanic check your heater control valve. It may need replacing.

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.

Check Engine light


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.
