Yes your not getting a good connection between clamps and terminal or bolts and terminal. Use some sand paper and clean the clamps and posts or whatever set up you have. Make sure the cable clamps are tight to battery you may have stripped it and it just separated the clamp get a nother bolt if that is the case

2000 acura tl 3.2 wont start when hot starts after cool down several hours later


If nothing happens when you turn the key, the starter doesn't even try to turn over, then you may have a faulty connection on a wire near the engine that loses connectivity when the insulation is earned up and softened. The connection is reestablished when the wire cools and firms up. You will not be able to visually see the damage as it is covered by insulation. To locate the short, test each wire with an omh meter while the engine is warm. Does the engine warm up and then die while running? Or will it not restart once you kill the ignition while the engine is warm? If it dies while running, then you have a faulty ground wire. Try Replacing the ground wires from the battery to the chassis and the one from the engine to the chassis. Will take about an hour of your time and somewhere around $10. Don't run all your ground from the same connection.

Acura Tl 2005 won't start


This vehicle is equipped with a chipped ignition system.On your dash warning lights,when turn key into on position you'll notice a yellow key symbal, it should flash then go out. If it flashes then goes to solid on, it means the system does not recognize signal from key. This can be because of wrong key(original valet key will not start car) or key for whatever reason has been deprogrammed. Which can only be done by dealership unfortunately. If system is working(light does go out) then you need to look at possible brake switch sensor,park/neutral safety switch on shifter, and for signal at started when key turned to start position

2005 Acura tl car won't start


Do you get warning lights on the dash ?
If yes, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter.
The circuit between the key switch and the starter has a neutral or clutch safety switch that could have failed.

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!

99 Acura TL dies when I try to start


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!!
