Sounds like tranny froze up. Not what you wanted to hear, but the shop that put the tranny in should have given you a warranty. The lights came on, because the engine stalled. Please rate me if you find this helpful, thank you.

The transmission is faulty on this car and Acura is providing extending warranty coverage. This is covered under NHTA safety recall, you should get this done for free as there have been deaths with the transmission locking at high speeds..sounds like your rebuilt never had the transmission cooler installed which was a dealer installed solution for low mileage cars

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.

My acura tl 2003 is stuck in park


Your gearshift has a "solinoid" that keeps the gearshift in park until criteria is met..I.e. Brake is engaged, seatbelts etc. It's my guess you have an issue where that solinoid is not getting power or has gone def. If you have access to a test light, pop up the cover where the shifter is turn on the key step on brake and check power. If there is none your issue may be a bad brake or possible neutral safety switch. If you have power then the solinoid is the culprit.

Ignition stuck key won't turn to start car!


Gear shift is not totally in the park position - had the same problem with a 2011 Acura TL - a rubber band kept the gear shift lever from totally seating in the park position.

Volkswagen Jetta won't go into gear from park what


There's a relay on the brake pedal arm that actuates when you press the brake pedal. This releases the lock on the shifter, so you can shift out of Park. VW's are notorious for having issues with this relay. Stick your head down by the brake pedal and you'll see where the pedal arm hits the relay. It's more than likely stuck, and may not need to be replaced. I'm guess you probably have no brake lights either...

My tailkights are not working at all. My Park in the car is stuck and won;t come down with motor started.


turn engine off. Turn key to OFF position, (no lights on dash lit). Step on brake, pull shift lever to neutral. start car, put in drive and go. this is emergency bypass.

When the key is ON, the shift lock soneoid is engaged and won't release till the brake is applied. Since you don't have brake lights, it means the solenoid won't unlock.
check for a blown fuse or a bad brake switch on the brake pedal.

OFF is the first click clockwise from LOCK. it goes, LOCK, OFF, ON, START.

I doubt they did anymore damage but i`ll bet that the engine was damaged from the training going out such as valve guides and seals and carbon build up on plugs ETC.
