96' 3.2 Acura TL dies while driving now won't


i have posted this solution before, I will give you the short version. On the steering column, under the left side of the cowling, on the opposite side directly across from where the key goes in the ignition,... there is a wire loom screwed to that end with 2 screws, remove this and clean the inside of both sides CAREFULLY, dont break anything. expensive dealer part! just scrape it lightly and wipe a little, carefully re assemble, dont bend it, dont screw it back in too tight, you cant make it go together any closer than it will. This solution solves a number of odd problems attributed to ACURA quitting , battery not charging, lights flickering turn signals not working, a lot of things, so i think everyone should do this to there ACURA, and its EASY!

Why do the lights flicker when trying to turn over the engine?


The battery is low on charge. Either the battery is failing or your alternator is not putting out enough charge or the starter motor is drawing too much electricity. If you have a volt ohm meter you can check the all of these conditions. Simply by connecting the VOM to the battery. Your battery should have a static charge of about 12.5 volts. When you try to start the engine the voltage on the meter should not drop below 10 volts..If you have the engine running the voltage should come up to about 14.4 volts within 2 minutes. If it doesn't come above 14 volts there is a problem with your alternator.

My 2004 f150 wont start. i drove it to the store and everything worked fine. when i came out of the store, the truck won't start. when i turn the key nothing happens. i can hear a clicking noise coming...


I would check your battery. I would also look for loose grounds. The clicking you hear is your fuel pump turning on. I would check your battery voltage and, have the battery load tested.

98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over


Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
