Question about 1997 Acura TL Series

1 Answer

I was driving my 1997 acura tl. 2.5 L. to advanced auto to get a diagnostic test as I was driving I felt my car not really changing gears and the speed pick up of the car wasn't as usual.Then turned off my car in the parking lot. He did the diagnostic test and tried to clear some codes. Right after I tried to turn on my car and it wouldn't so we checked the battery and it was good. I had to move it so I tried but the shift stick wouldn't budge so I had to stick the key in the port next to it to move the gears that way so I could put it in neutral to roll it. After a little searching I found that a fuse had been blown under the steering column called (STARTER RELAY) i believe. Well I tried more fuses and it blew them also. Then I rigged a wire around another fuse so it wouldn't blow and maybe I could start my car and get it home and it did work but I took the fuse out right after I started it. So I go to drive it home and it felt to me like it wouldn't shift on it's own but I could do it manually. Also though for me to drive it I had to put the key back into the key slot next to the shifter to get it out of park. I feel that I may need a new transmission but wanted to know if you guy's had any other problems of this caliber. Also why a fuse was blown and kept blowing. My guess was that the car has sensor's to stop the driver from driving so as to not mess up the car anymore than it already is. What's yall's theory???
