Question about 1999 Acura TL

Open Question

I have a 99 acura tl, recently the abs light started coming on, soon after, the transmission starts slipping, not shifting and all my gauges stop working. The first time it happened I shut the car off and then when I tried to start it back up it wouldn't start, just some clicking. We replaced the battery yesterday thinking that was the problem. They tested the old battery and it was bad, however I'm getting all the same problems again.

SOURCE: 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!!

The transmission has to come out & be rebuilt

Once they slip your done

Then install all new motor & transaxle mounts
& change your trans fluid every 3 years, on all your
vehicles or they will suffer the same fate as well

Change your power steering fluid every 3 years or the rack will fail like transmissions do

You should call your local Acura Dealer. Some of these TL's had additional warranty coverage for similar transmission problems. I would first see if you car qualifies for any Manufacturer support.

It sounds like when the dashboard was replaced that one or more of your lighting harnesses weren't completely plugged in.

Since your check engine light came on, you now have an error code to help pin it down. I would suggest you take it to an autoparts store and have them read the error codes in your computer. WRITE THEM DOWN IN THE ORDER THEY COME OFF, so you have them. That should give you a starting point for further troubleshooting.

Sounds like the transmission is starting to slip. If you have an Acura dealer check for fault codes, you will more than likely find a malfunction code for the transmission.
