My 89 Legend coupe 2.7 wont start

Ok my legends problems are as follows; it wont start anymore unless jump started, when i do drive it, it dies at every stop sign, there is a hesitation in the ignition. ok now ive replaced the alternator, starter, battery, and spark plugs and have done a oil change and fuel treatment and everything on it, and the sum ***** still wont start, the guy i bought it from said there is something in the wiring of the drivers side seat that drains the battery. but im on my 3rd battery now in just about 3 weeks, so why in the hell is my car not running the way it should be???? if anyone can help it will be much appreciated

1st- find the short. If the previous owner said there is a short under the seat , look for it and repair it.
2nd -after repair check your charging system and battery to make sure its up to specs.

Note: I gather the under seat wiring is for seat control, maybe you could unplug it and see if the battery and alternater work ok. If it does and you can't repair wiring perhaps you can get a replacement wiring harness for that section( seat control?)

Good luck

Does it crank (turn over) and not start? Does it not crank? Try locking and unlocking the doors with the key.

New altenator new battery but battery light stays on and car wont start without a jump and then dies while driving after a few minutes. i drive an 89 acura legend


Hi!!
Your best bet is to remove the battery or the negative battery cable, charge it and drive your vehicle to an AutoZone, Checkers or similar Autoparts store to have your charging system checked. If the engine is running, even if you disconnect the negative battery cable it should stay running, if it dies, the alternator is not working, probably the voltage regulator. If you just bought the alternator, try to take the vehicle to that place so they can check it. If you don't think the car would make it to the auto parts store. Remove the alternator and the battery to have them tested. It is not unusual that an alternator fails when just out of the box. Good Luck!!

My 93 acura legend wont start. Ticking sound??


That sounds like a dead battery. The ticking sound is the relay (a type of switch) which enables power to the starter motor when you turn the key. If the battery is weak, the relay will click, but there is not enough power to turn the starter motor.
