I bought a 1999 Acura Integra & the seller didn't tell me about the kill switch. How do I get rid of the kill switch?

you need to find the kill switch and remove the wires from the switch and attach them together if it is a 2 wire switch, lights dimming on break application is due to a short in the wires, common problem with integras 94-2001

I left my 2003 acura 3.2 tl s type idling with heat and defrost on,all of a sudden it started to idle rough and vibrate a bit. It doesn't seem to be getting enough power or is bogged down?

These cars are very sensitive to gas that is either remotely old (couple of weeks), outside temperature and/or too low of octane rating.

Try some fuel injector cleaner such as Beryman B52 found at Walmart pretty cheap. Put the whole can in with a fresh tank of gas and drive it down to 1/8 tank over normal driving.

Make sure the cable clamps or bolts are clean and tight on the batt. Dirt will interfere and cause batt to act like it is low on power.

I replaced the battery in my 2003 Acura TL a month ago. I had no problems with it until last week when it wouldn't start; after a few minutes it started and again, no problems until yesterday. Now when I...

I suspect the problem lies in your starter. When a battery goes bad, it can cause surges that can adversely affect the rest of the electrical system, causing different components to go bad. If you've done a load test on your battery and it is functioning correctly, then you'll need to have the starter tested and / or replaced. The single click implies the solenoid is working correctly but the armature in the starter is not turning. If your starter is expensive, you may be able to have a mechanic replace the armature in your starter. If you choose this option, have the mechanic replace the brushes in the starter as well.

Two weeks ago, when I went to Acura deller for oil change, they sugested me change the battery, since I never got a problem for start, so i did not change the battary. But next day I can not start my car,...

First make sure the terminal and posts are clean and greased.

Then make sure the alternator belt is tight.

The type of battery makes no difference as long as it fits.

What matters is whether or not the alternator is putting out 13.5 volts or higher, in order to keep the battery at 12.5 volts. Put a voltmeter on the battery and rev the engine.

1997 acura 3.2TL needs lot of cranking in codl

Hows your oil level?When was the last oil change?May take more to get it started if oil is low or old.Oil turns to syrup in the cold.

Another possobilty is the cranking amps of the battery or the amount of power it will put out. A higher cranking amp battery will turn the engine more efficiently.

that pretty much sounds like a bad battery, next time its jumped, autozone or any other shop like that will usually test the battery for free. if you have a volt meter, measure the voltage on the battery with the vehicle on and off. vehicle running should have about 14.4 volts, and off 12.6 at a full charge. if there is low voltage at the battery after a full charge, its most likely the battery.
