Question about Acura RL

1 Answer

My 2001 Acura RL has a problem starting. I've changed the starter and battery. When I turn the ignition key, the lights come on but it won't start. Their is no clicking or any other sound. I'll try starting it two or three times before it actually starts. It runs great once it starts. What can be causing this problem? I've heard possible alarm system or ignition system

Could either, could be alarm or ignition relay or ignition switch itself, could also be transmission selector switch try putting transmission lever in neutral and then start if it does the same you will know it one of the other causes. Have auto electrician check alarm and ignition relays.

`2005 Acura RL randomly wont start , key -on all works key to start -nothing dash lights stay on . even w/jump. Power start, sol. ,, starts right up . Next time you turn key=yes -no ? ? ?


lister for a clicking from the start motor you may need some to help you. if you or your friend hear the click on the starter motor then the motor and it does not turn the engine or goes crunch like its engaged but does not turn,It will need replacing or fixing, if no click this could be the starter relay or the ignition switch or you have a lose wire tot he relay.

What's are the signs that my starter on my 2006 Acura RL is Bad??? I have full power inside my car, it won't start....


Could be the battery isn't charged enough to turn the motor over. Try jumping it and listen under the hood for any grinding or metalic sounds. You can have lights inside but not enough to start the motor.

Attempted to jump start my 2001 3.5 rl acura and


10gage cables?
does engine turn by hand? if not,its seized.
the starter can pull 500 amps. (if cold) its called a series wound motor.
and the harder the engine turns, the more amps and HP from this
electric motor. id turn it by hand, if you can turn the engine crank
by hand than try real jumper cable (they cost more) and if they
fail the starter is jammed, or is shorted.
starters can be dead, shorted, open, weak, or jammed.
if the engine spins, take the starter to any autostore, they test it for free.

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

1996 Acura 3.5 RL won't start


Try putting battery voltage directly to the starter solenoid

If the starter works then the control circuit is not working,
fuse,worn ignition switch,neutral safety sw & such

If you use jumper cables directly to the starter that will eliminate
that if it works

How do you turn your maintenance light off on a 1996 acura rl 3.5


Turn your ignition off.
Press and hold both your "select" and "reset" buttons by your instrument cluster.
While holding in both buttons, turn the key to the "on" position but do not start.
After 10 seconds the light should flash and go out.
Done.

Clicking noise when attempting to start my 2001 Acura RL


The clicking sound is the solenoid trying to operate and engage the starter. Have the battery checked for voltage and load, if it proves to be okay you may have a stuck starter which will require replacement and or repair.
