Y acura tl 2004 will start after a few times, it makes a buzzing noise sounds like its coming from the fuse box

As weird as it sounds if i kick the fuse box it will start a few attempts, heard something that it could be a relay switch?

Relays will often stick or even engage and disengage---try first tapping on each relay to see if one will allow it to start. Most of these plug in.

SOURCE: Turn signal continues to make the clicking sound

I had the same problem, I found the post quoted below and fixed the problem in about 1 hour without having to replace any parts. Hope this helps!

(I can't seem to get back into the link but had copied the answer - the original link is: http://www.allaboutauto.us/2007/04/07/1999_chevrolet_blazer_turn_signal_clicking_noise.html)

"I had this same problem and fixed it myself. The problem is caused by the contacts rubbing and releasing small particles which conduct small amounts of electricity and cause the flasher relay to click. From a GM Goodwrench mechanic.

Disconnect Battery Before doing this.

You need to remove the turn signal arm from the steering column. This may seem difficult but it really isn't. Separate the top and bottom covers. Find the screws and remove the switch. One is located behind the column and requires some dexterity to get out. I used a Torx bit on a 1/4 box wrench.

The difficult part is separating the switch to clean the contacts. Take your time and you can figure out how to separate the switch. If I remember right, the switch separates and then the emergency signal switch slides out. Also, pay special attention to the way the rotary wiper delay switch is set into the switch.

Once you can see the contacts, clean them off of all lubricant and metal pieces. I would hesitate to use Isopropyl Alcohol for this because off the plastics involved. I just used lots of Q-Tips and a lot of patience.

Finally, get a good Dielectric (non-conducting) lubricant from auto store and cover all contacts with a thin layer. Put the switch back together, reinstall and test.

This took me about four hours to repair. Because I took my time and did not force anything. Once I figured it out it wasn't that hard. The hard part was the rotary delay switch and how it was set into the switch.

I figured if this didn't work, I was going to have to replace the switch anyway, so what the hell. Just make sure your local auto parts store has one of these available if you screw this one up.

Did this about four years ago and problem has not returned since."

SOURCE: can the transmission makes noise if fluid is low

Depending on how long you drove it low and how low it is (was), You can severely damage trans. Oil keeps it cool and lubricated. Parts in there are very sensitive to both. If you think it's got a noisy bearing, try to isolate which side. drive with windows open, have someone help you by listening on passenger side as well. If it's that noisy should not be too hard to find.

2004 Acura TL hard to start and wont stay running.


When I first read your question I would have automatically said it sounds like your timing belt is off one or 2 teeth and honestly that can still be the problem. But after reading more of your question it's become more and more puzzling. I would make sure your car was not a flooded car. After Hurricane Katrina I saw a lot of these types of problems. Cars that have been flooded with high water levels can do all kinds of crazy thing. From water getting into places it shouldn't. Such as your PCM (Powertrain Control Module) and other electrical modules. I would have a vehicle car history done by someone I trusted to make sure. It could possibly have a savage title. Hope this helps.

Seat heater stuck on, Acura TL


Check your fusebox for the fuse and remove the fuse, this will turn off the seat heater.
There are two fuse boxes, one under the dash and one in the engine bay.
Your seat heater is designed to run continuously so is most likely safe th drive the 10 miles to your dealer.

My 2005 acura tl has a weird sound when its really cold outside. Its worse when your turn the car.


Hi:
If you are getting a growling sound, when it is cooler out side, and it happens when you are moving the steering wheel, then definitely consider your power steering pump as a suspect. Check to make sure that it is full of fluid. If the noise occurs when the wheel is moved, it isn't a safety factor, but won't get any better.

I just bought my 2004 Acura TL 2 weeks ago. It


What you describe is consistant with a lifter not pumping up except at a little higher rpm, which would make sense. You have overhead cams, with hydrolic lifters. They pump up with oil. If you have one that is not fully "pumped", it will make a clicking noise when the camlobe moves it and it strikes the valve. This is not the only thing it could be...and maybe it is the tensioner, but if it is coming from the valve area....Also, your dealer should have a special stethescope so the mechanic can listen in spots, and move the pick-up to where the noise gets louder and make a better diagnosis.

best bet is to get the codes read. You prabably have one in either the Security or the PCM module. One thing you havn't said is if you charged the battery up or had it tested.. The clicking from a module could be a sign of a weak battery
