Question about 1999 Acura TL
99 Acura TL (129K miles) dies when I try to start, this doesn't happpen 100% of the time probably around 65%. Sometimes I have to try to start 3-6 times until it finally stays on. It had died one time in the last few months while actually driving, I pulled over and it started after a few try's and has never done it again so far. It kinda seems to me like it dies more often in hot weather vs. mild weather. I just replaced the battery and I am hesitant to take it to Acura ($$$). THANKS FOR YOUR TIME
I have helped many Honda/Acura owners on this issue. Many mechanics will replace many parts prior to solving this problem, which then creates unnecessary repairs and spending. So here is my diagnosis: Notice if your speedometer drops to zero when your engine dies while driving. If this happens its your ignition switch failing. Ignition switches in Honda/Acura vehicles years 97-02 encounter faulty or shorted internal contacts. This causes premateur electrical failure to vital engine electrical parts, causing vehicle to stall intermittedly. A recall has been in place since 2002, approximately 1.3mil vehicles are affected, call your local honda/acura dealer for info and possible free repair or replace the ignition switch yourself. Hopefully my info helps you!!
