I f the car turned over before you replaced the alternator then maybe the problem is not the alternator but ignition issues, sometime the igniton module goes on these cars without warning my advise would be to remove one of the spark plugs to check for spark, remove wire then plug in plug to wire lay the plug on a part of the motor that is metallic, have an assistant turn the car over and try to start look to see if plug has a blue spark or purple don't do test in direct sunlight. If a good spark is seen go on to next test stick your finger into the hole where the spark plug goes have an assistant turn motor over you should hear and feel alot of pressure trying to push your finger out of hole if you don't feel a good deal of pressure you probably broke the timing belt and the cylinder head must be removed and rebuilt because of the nature of the designed interference engine (valve gets hit by piston bending it when timing belt breaks) good luck

I have a 1992 Acura legend. the battery died. i installed a new battery and it wont start. what vould be the problem?


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

1989 acura legend will not crank over after replacing alternator and battery


May not have been the alternator , check the main relay module , may need to re solder the connections. Its under the dash on the left side
of the steering column , its a little hard to see and get out but the connections often burn through the solder and present problems such as this that mimic a fuel supply problem .

My ignition cylinder is worn down and the key wont start the car anymore. is there a way to start it without having to buy a whole new cylinder?


I just had that problem with my 93 acura, and it wasn't my whole ignition cylinder, it was only my ignition switch, which only takes about 45min. to an hour to replace yourself. You can find the D.I.Y tips online. Part runs about $80. Replaced it, and the car starts on the first turn every since. The cylinder parts cost way more, so I would go the other route first. Hope that helps.

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.

I own a 1991 Acura Legend... one morning I am driving to work and I am exiting off a ramp going 65 mph then I feel the car losing speed so, I pull over on the side of the highway, put the car in park, and...


Your alternator needs to be checked, if it goes bad the car will run of the battery but when the battery gets low the car will lose power and when the battery goes dead the car will just die and not restart. Did the engine even turn over when you tried to crank it if so its probably the alternator. I hope that helps you out!

'93 acura legend sometime will not start, or will start and cut off in a couple of seconds. Wait a while and it starts up. The wait time varies.


My 93 legend starts up when i turn the key, but sometimes when i release the key the car will cut off.
I had the fuel pump replaced some weeks ago thinking that was the problem but now its doing it again. Any solutions will be much appreciated.

Acura Legend Sedan 3.2 lts 1994


replace de ignition module first.. if still wont start good chances is the crank sensor is located behind the timing belt.. my 94 legend use to do the same thing until i replace the crank sensor.. and also if u can afford i will suggest u to replace the main fuel relay too... all this is after u are 100 pcnt sure that ur fuel pump is working....
