Question about 1999 Acura TL
Hello. All of these warning lights are related and caused, most likely by a bad sensor. This is a very common problem in these cars with ABS once they get to be over 3 years old. If you have an AAMCO repair shop nearby drive there and they will scan your car's computer for free. Otherwise, call your local parts stores until you find one that scans car computers for free and then you will know what your car's computer is telling you. In the mean time, the car is still safe to drive, you just may not have the anti-lock feature to the brakes but u will still have brakes. Joe
4 thumbs up will be appreciated. ty.

Well, I would have the 1999 Acura scanned with an OBD-II Scanner at Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, or you can buy your own scanner for under $100 at Sears for the engine side.
For the ABS and SRS lights I would say that the dealer should have scanners that can diagnose that portion of your problem. The $100 scanner for ABS and VRS that I know of from Actron.com is good for only American nameplate vehicles (GM, Ford, Chrysler).
That should get you down the road on diagnosing the problem. The parts required to repair the vehicle is the next phase of the repair process, and follow from the codes that are read with the appropriate scanning tools.
I wish you luck on these repairs.

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must
now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and
"scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module
