I have a 1999 acura 3.5rl. You put the key in and turn it to start position and nothing happens. I thought it was the battery but with the lights and turn the key the lights stay bright. will not come out of park. windows will not work, radio will not come on. I put battery charger on will wait tell morning. Is their some kind protection or his it the battery? My wife despersately needs her car. Thanks Patrick Hawkins

Sure sounds like a bad ignition switch to me. Get out your voltmeter and wiring diagram and check for power in and out at the ignition switch

SOURCE: car alarm preventing car from starting

1999 CONCORDE: check the battery terminals probably they are not tight enough...something like that happened to me just the lights turned on and the car seemed to be dead, the battery is still ok since then. I just needed to buy new terminals.

SOURCE: car won't turn over

Neutral safety switch may be going bad or is out of adjustment. Switch is on the transmission under the shift linkage ear where shift cable attaches. Loosen it and put car in reverse (not running) turn switch so that reverse lights come on. semi-tighten switch and check that it starts in both park and neutral. If not you need to change the switch.

Why does nothing happens when key is turned to start?


You have a faulty ignition switch relay. It's responsible for using a low voltage signal (key in start position) to send full battery power to your starting circuit.

2006 Acura does not start.


Yes. Here is quick test, open the hood , with a long enough metal bar or 3/8 extension, have someone hold the key in the crank position, as nothing happens , tap on the starter motor and see if it catches.

2003 Aurora, left key on and battery went dead. Recharged battery. Won't start. Turn key to on, security light out and check engine light on. Move key to start and nothing, back to on, one minut


Very interesting site here.. regarding your problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
Another thought.. even though you charged the battery, it's not at all uncommon for a car battery to be very damaged by fully discharging. Especially if not new-ish. One or more cells in it may be bad causing the overall voltage to be under normal. This alone can cause the problem you have. I would try jumping it with another car or test the battery to see if it's got at least 12.7 to 12.9 volts when sitting doing nothing. Good luck.

Maint required light flashing 10 times when I start a car 2000 acura rl 181000 miles I had a tune-up & oil change 1 month ago, car runs perfect


These happens every "scheduled maintenance" milage. Pretty soon it will come on and stay on.

On a 1999, if you hold in the milage reset buttons and turn on the key to 2nd position, the maintenance light will go out.

Maintenance light blinks several times when I turn my 1999 Acura TL on. It goes off after about 30 seconds should I be concerned.


this may mean its time for an oil change it's the cars way of saying it's time for a scheduled maintenance.
Turn the key off and push and hold the select button. Keep holding while you turn the key to the on position (not the start position) keep holding for about 15 seconds then turn the key back off . next turn the key back to on position the light should only come on once. now you can start the car
