Question about 2005 Acura RL

2 Answers

2005 Acura RL would not start..........

My warranty expired Wednesday and I had a problem starting the car on Thursday. Oh well... Is it advisable to jump start my RL? If it is, where is the "grounding point" for the negative jumper cable? Does it require taking the plastic around the battery apart? Is an OEM Acura battery necessary?

#1 -- If you follow the correct procedure for jump starting the vehicle using cables and another vehicle, everything should turn out just fine.

#2 -- The grounding point is in most cases (99%) the actual body/frame of the vehicle itself. Most cases connecting the ground cable to something that won't be damaged by the cable teeth like an engine mount, if the engine mount is in an accessable and high position in the engine bay, or possibly to the Strut-suspension mounting bolts usually protruding through the wheel wells.

#3 -- It doesn't require it, but its optional and may or may not be easier to connect the ground that way -- depending on where the battery is mounted.

#4 -- Although it is probably recommended by the Manufacturer, it is not 100% mandatory that you use a battery with an Acura logo on it. An Advance Auto or AutoZone battery should do fine, and as a matter of fact, I'm fairly sure Advance Auto and/or AutoZone will install the battery themselves there in the parking lot.

2005 acura rl had battery with low startup voltage, tried to start the car and it didn't at first, second try it started however the Rear power windos and auto self lock feature turned off. now rear...


It may reinizialze its self once you take battery out and put new one in. The computer modulator resets when you take neg. side of battery off. So that should work. If not try asking at Advance Auto or one Auto parts stores.
