The lock up solenoid locks the torque converter so that is a direct link between the transmission and the engine. If the lock up solenoid is stuck or the torque converter is stuck in the locked position the vehicle should still start but will die as soon as you put it into gear.

Starter solenoid kicks back before engine starts

it may push the gear out just fine, but lack power to keep it pressed forward .Sounds like a solinoid problem. It is turning off before releasing the key. Check the solinoid! God-Bless!

My acura tl 2003 is stuck in park

Your gearshift has a "solinoid" that keeps the gearshift in park until criteria is met..I.e. Brake is engaged, seatbelts etc. It's my guess you have an issue where that solinoid is not getting power or has gone def. If you have access to a test light, pop up the cover where the shifter is turn on the key step on brake and check power. If there is none your issue may be a bad brake or possible neutral safety switch. If you have power then the solinoid is the culprit.

there should be a fuseable link on the wires on the battery side for the solinoid they might be poped it sounds to me like your not getting power to the truck except the starter make shure all the wires are connected and check all the fuses

Power at battery good. power to starte solenoid good, strater tested good. Wont turn over(start cranking)

Sounds like the solinoid is bad. The small wire going to the solinoid should have battery voltage going to it when the key is in the start position. If it does your solinoid is bad. If it doesent your key swith is bad or the wire going to the solinoid is cut somewher between the switch and the solinoid

Fist of all the ignition switch tuns with out key its been laid up seveveral years.had to jump solinoid to get engine to run .so i replaed solinoid nowwhen you turn the key nothing happens youneed to jump...

As the car has been laid up many years, it needs a thorough servicing. Besides a solenoid in the starter motor, there is a bendex as well. Its role is to push the starter pinion forwards to enable it to engage the flywheel when you turn the key. And when the key is turned backwards then this pinion is pulled backwards. This goes bad sometimes as most of the things do. So it should be repaired. Then the starter motor will start functioning as it should.

My rear driver side door will not lock using the keyless entry, i have to manually push it down for all the others doors to lcok & activate the alarm.

There is a solinoid in your door that actuates the locking mechanism. If one of the wires is loose, or somehow disconnected it will not work. Since the others work, unless your car has a fuse for each door, the problem will not be a fuse. It could be that the solinoid in that door is burned and requires replacement. A test light on the solinoid contact when trying to lock it will demonstrate whether there is power TO the solinoid. If there IS power to the solinoid, the solinoid is bad, if there is NOT power to the solinoid, you must find the disconnect. Usually it is one or both of the wires connected TO the solinoid.
