Question about 2000 Acura TL

Open Question


Good morning, I am e-mailing you today because my SRS light is staying on my 2000 Acura TL. I have tried your way of using a wire that connect to the end of the MES Connector. I HAD NO LUCK!, so i took the car to the Acura dealer ship to see why the SRS light is staying on. They diagnosis and told me i would need to replace the main wire harness. I don't see this as the problem. The two codes that where retrieved from the dealer ship were code 2-5. Code 2 is a battery voltage out of range. code 5 is the relay chort to battery. So, i feel that the dealer ship is feeding me **** about the main wiring harness, and i think that it may be the battery relay. I would like to find out what you think. PS I replaced the driver side airbag and passanger airbag as well the computer modle. My e-mail address is Thanks, Dave

SOURCE: how to change spark plugs on 2005 acura tl


you need a 6 inch extension, short 3/8 ratchet, 5/8 plug socket, 3/8 swivel "u" joint, (sold at sears) 8mm 1/4 drive socket deep well and 1/4 inch ratchet.

find the coil packs (6 total, three in each head.)
remove the two retaining nuts holding each coil pack using 1/4 8mm socket and ratchet.
twist the pack to break the sticking boot below.
pull up (be careful to not rip the boots however it may still happen but rare.)
remove coil packs, the rear is a little more difficult with the intake.
use 6" extension and u joint and ratchet to remove plugs and replace.
reverse order to assemble. Good luck, and hoped this helped.

there should be a belt diagram from a label either on underside of hood or on radiator support. That should help if you can do it yourself.

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.

On a 3.2 TL Acura, the "SRS" Indicator Light stays on after the engine starts. What codes will be indicated when I try and read the codes?

THE SRS means Air bag sensor and trigger ..

Simply put the SRS light tells you that the sensor cant connect to the trigger of your airbag namely the one locate in the steering wheel. This is beacause of a device known as a clock spring located in the steering. Its moves like a clock and allows the sensor and bag to get connection but sometimes the coil wires get broken.

To fix this take it to a SHOP.
reasons for that.

the fix involves. (REMOVE BATTERY)
1.) remove the steering wheel using the lock bolt and key
2.) unblot and remove then unlock the clock spring
3.) replace,
4.) recalibrate and reset spring
5.) reset error codes
6.) reassemble
7.) reset error codes.

My SRS light is on? what does this mean?

SRS is for "Supplemental Restraint System". This includes airbags and any other passive restraint device like a seat belt pre-tensioner. It is trying to tell you that your restraints will not function properly in the event of a collision.

Reset srs light

Well basically all Honda/Acura because the system sometimes "hiccups" and causing codes to trip the SRS light.

DISCLAIMER: Please do this at your own risk, i am not responsible for any damages that you may cause by doing this SRS DIY reset. If you do not trust yourself, please take the car to Acura Dealership and have them reset it for you, Warranty will normally cover for reset at FREE of charge. Try this DIY at your own risk,

Note: If your airbag deployed or seats has been removed or anything that may have triggered the SRS, this DIY will not work for you. All you will get is two flashes or more and the light will remain on.

Tools Material Needed:
- Standard Paperclip (or wire)
- Maybe flash light (night job)

- 1 to 5 minutes

First make sure your key is out of the ignition.

Step 1:
You can use two options in this step to use to make two contact connect together:

Paper Clip, you can use the paperclip and bend it out to where both ends are next to each other so it can be put in to two pins.
