Question about 1998 Acura TL

Open Question

When i try to start my car it does absolutely nothing. im getting power to the starter (which is new, well refurbished), but it wont turn over. recently the same thing happened and i replaced the starter and it worked fine for about 2 weeks then the same thing happened. i took that starter to get it tested and it failed after about 3 tests onces it got hot. i put another one in and nothing, thats where im at now. it had a new ignition, battery, ground from battery to frame and motor. but when i hooked up the diagnostic it red P0333 (knock censor high circuit) and P1660 which was not listed but i looked it up online and it said a bad ground. which is why i replaced the ground from the battery to the frame and motor. so what other possible ground could be defective? or what else could be causing this? please help im stumped and starting to get real frustrated and i dont want to end up repairing my windows that i busted out (just playing). thank you for your time.

SOURCE: honda civic hard start when its hot

you might have leaking valve seats they are expensive to replace, what happens is while your driving they let some oil go past them resulting in oil being dripped into the cylinderwhere the gasoline is supposed to go ..its hard to start because it needs to burn off the oil first.

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

Hi there,
I dont know about your other problems with the solenoid or etc., but i recently replaced the starter on my cousin's Acura TL (98yr.).Now if this is your problem I can help,1st. disconnect your battery so you dont get fried!!! LOL,next you have to remove the cv boot or cv axel from the tranne no exceptions.Then you remove the lower bolt (which you get to under the car by the driverside tire)the last bolt is in the back by the fire wall (facing the oppesset side of the stater) they dont tell you that @ the dealers. Hope that the information I provided will help GOD BLESS!!!!!

Car wont start have power everywhere but when i turn key nothing, could it be a fuse or neutral safty swith? starter new, battery new


alternators usually make a noticeable whining sound when they are going bad. if you picked up a used starter it could have died already. bad starter core. could be a fuse somewhere. idk im not an expert. 2 fuse boxs. under the hood closer to the windshield. the other is in the drivers side footwell. if the turnover clicks starter should be alright. if not you'll need a new starter.

Have a 1984 Toyota Maual pickup 4 cylinder, Put in new battery but still nothing when turning key, have head lights but absolutly nothing else.


if the starter is not making any noise then try tapping the starter while someone tries to start it.if the car turns over then you have a bad spot in the starter and will have to be replaced.

Car wont start..turning the ignition and it wont make any noise at all, absolutely nothing. not even a click. power comes on though. any ideas?


Extremely low voltage from battery. If you are under 9 or 10 volts you can power anything in the car but it isn't enough to engage the starter. Before you buy a battery try cleaning the connection sometimes thats all it takes.

My 99 monte carlo wont start the lights and radio work but the car wont start what do i do


If you have power but the starter won't engauge here are a few things to check 1 start at the fuse box check fuses. If the fuses are good check the starter. This time of year cold weather starters have more strain and burn out easier. Also exessive oil dripping on the starter can cause to go out because of residue build up in the starter. If the starter checks out good it is then a bad conection or wire. thanks

No power going to the starter (2002 jeep wrangler x 4.0 auto)


Hi Tyler.
By run position I assume you mean that you're trying to crank the engine, and that by nothing you mean that there's no sign of the starter engaging. Is this correct?
If you've checked the starter and you are absolutely sure it's getting power you have a seemingly impossible problem, because if the starter is getting the power it needs and you know it's mechanically ok there's nothing in the world that could stop it from cranking.
Are you sure you haven't missed a wire when checking the starter? If the car has an alarm with an immobilizer (also called start inhibitor) it might be activated due to a fault somewhere in the wiring. Some cars might even disable the starter if a critical engine failure is detected. If so the cars diagnostic system should report a fult code when checked. (And, needless to say, an attempt to hot-wire the starter is not recommended until you identify the problem).
I'm really curious about this problem, please notify me when you find a solution!
Good luck!

No power to ignition - ? please help! 91 amigo 2.3l


If everything is turning on, and there's power... check for 12V at the alternator. it may be out now.... or a connector came loose, or wire broke.
