00 acura tl wont start replaced starter still wont start it starter when jumped with screw driver but wouldnt go into gear is there a fuse thats stopping this


Use your key in the slot next to the gearshift. If your brake lights aren't working it won't let you put the car in gear. This slot is an emergency switch to allow you to move the car out of park to move or tow it. Either your brake light switch is bad or both brake light bulbs are out.

Wont start just click.


Even after charging the battery or jumping? Do you know where the starter is located and what it looks like? Round, 3 wires coming out of the top, located under the engine at the rear. Check these wires and make sure they are secure. Located on top of the starter is the selonoid which causes the starter to engage. With the vehicle in park, emergency brake applied, have someone try starting it while you lay underneath. Listen for a clikcking to come from the seloniod. Can put your hand on it and feel the click too. If you get a strong click, but the starter does not engage, you may have a bad starter. Not too hard to change out but take battery cables off 1st! Also change the seloniod if you take the starter off. You do not want to do this twice so easier to make sure both parts are new. GT

Truck has power but doesn't start. Starter doesn't click either


Have you checked the circuit between the key switch and the starter ?
There should be a starter relay and a neutral safety switch involved.

Emergency break stuck- how to realease it?


The emergency brake does not affect the lighting or lights on your plates. This is an entirely different problem going on. On some vehicles, when you start them and put them in reverse the emergency brake pops out automatically. If this doesn't work, you will have to manually unlock the mechanism. As for the lights, the problem may be in your switch.

My emergency brake light has come on and stays on along with the little circle that looks like there is water or something on it in the message display...they both come on at the same time when starting...


I'd probably safely raise and support the rear of vehicle, make sure rear wheels turn freely, no braking action unless brakes are applied. You could raise one wheel at a time.
Check the emergency brake release mechanism, the switch and wiring circuit?
My main concern is your not driving down the road with braking action ongoing w/o brakes being applied.
My ex drove 50 miles one time with e-brake not fully released, the brakes were smoking like crazy when she got home. Glad she got home ok. I'm glad it didn't catch fire.

I have a 1999 voyager i turn the key all i get is a click.


If the battery is good and the headlights are good and bright, try cycling the inginition switch a few times to see if that will cause the engine to turn over. If not, check all connections to the battery and main plus terminal block and also check the connections on the starter. It could be the starter or starter solenoid. If it clicks, it's probably not the neutral position switch, but just for the heck of it, try starting the vehicle in neutral.

Make sure your foot is on the brake if you try to start in neutral so the vehicle won't roll. You could also apply the emergency brake.
