If you have a test light, check the brake light switch (usually mounted at the top of the break pedal arm). The switch will have voltage on one wire....when the pedal is pressed, the switch closes the circuit and sends voltage to the other wire connected to the brake lights.

2004 acura tl 6speed standard. VSA light/triangle light/parking brake light come on.


your vsa is vehicle stability assist that works with the abs system, verify brake calipers for proper functioning, sounds like breaks stick and cant return efficiently after breaking, vsa is a traction control light, if both lights remain on without flashing, those systems are disabled due to a problem, scan vehicle for possible abs sensor malfunction

Why is the break light in my acura tl 2.5 only working periodically


All you need to do is to replace your brake (not "break") light switch. They go bad over time, and they are fairly inexpensive to replace.

Cigarette lighter wont work on my 1998 acura 3.2 tl. Dont see a fuse under the hood


The cigarette lighter works only with the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position. In the under-dash fuse/relay box, you will find the cigarette lighter relay and the 10A RADIO fuse 11. If the fuse is OK, check 15A INTERIOR LIGHT fuse 57 in the underhood fuse/relay box. If OK, check 50A IG SW fuse 36

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!

My lights on gear shift panel no longer light up is this a fuse problem


Can be a break of the line as this wire goes through the console.
If park lamps are working fine this can be possible, or even a fault in the lamp in the panel.
remove the panel to check out

Cruise control can not set speed but cruise ctl light is on


Sometimes the plastic cog on the side of the throttle body (TB) breaks. This cog is "pulled" by the cruise control accuator's cable.
To check, simply look on the side of the TB and check to see of the cable end has broken free. (The mechanisim is much like the brake cable on a bike)
