Question about 2000 Acura TL

1 Answer

Acura TL 2000 outside brake lights are staying on permanently. I had the keys locked in the trunk and some tried the slim jim on the side without me realizing and as soon as they did lights came on and I could not get them off anymore. Tried alarm on off, driven the car, taken the battery terminal out but it does not go off.

SOURCE: The alarm on my 2003 acura tl randomly goes off

Have you checkd your fuses & also there is a small plastic/rubber piece somewhere on the driverside door, either on the actual door or on the car frame itself that once u close the door, that peice tells the alarm that its ok to lock and arm. (i dunno if u noticed but u can manually lock ur car w/ ur keys in the ignition, running, only if driver door is closed, from any other door usung the lock button, but not if the driver door is open) If that peice n ur door is worn, eventually it will break causing u to have to use ur key to unlock ur car. BUT, doing that will not disarm the alarm only unlock ur car & it will sound every time & not stop until u pull the fuse to the horn & lights. i had to bring mine to a dealership to get it fixd bc I couldnt figure it out. Paid $300 for a $25 piece of plastic I could have changed myself. Hope this helps..... good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 acura TL horn blows when replacing the battery

dont you have the alarm key fob? if so that will reset it. just press unlock. If you dont an dits not a OEM Acura alarm you will need to find who makes it and get a new key fob, or have a shop that does alarms to disconnect it.

I locked my keys in my ignition in my 88 legend Coupe LS does anyone know how to open from the trunk so I casn crawl in

Only by breaking and entering: you'd have to punch out the lock cylinder to get to the latch.
Try a coathanger wire past the door molding to reach the door lock and trip it. A "slim jim" may also work-a thin metal bar that slides down the outside of door window into door and catches the lock rod to spring lock open. Finally, call a locksmith to open door, and have him make you a spare key after he opens door.
Good luck.

2000 sable permanent number won't open the door. keys are locked in the car, what to do.

There are a few things you can try. Sometimes the Police Department will help with a lockout. They have a tool called a Slim-jim which can open doors without a key.

Next would be to use your Auto Club or Car Insurance benefits for a Locksmith. Locksmiths have keysets which is a duplicate of all keys. Or you can try a Towtruck and ask if they would have a Slim-jim if the Police won't help.

Look at your Car Insurance forms and get the Vin# off them. Or get the Vin# off the small ID plate at the base of the Drivers Windshield. Call the Dealer and see if they will make a Doorkey for you. You do not need a Computer chip in the key. The Computer key is very expensive. Just a plain key to work in the Doorlock.

These are the cheapest ways to get into your car.

ABS light on in my 1996 acura tl

This means that the abs is not working. The brakes will still work just without the anti lock feature. Check your fuses then check the connections at each of the brakes, when ever I have had the abs light stay on a connection had came loose.
