Question about 2005 Acura TL
I think either blown fuse for starter or ignition or bad starter or ignition. No cranking sound when trying to start engine
This vehicle is equipped with a chipped ignition system.On your dash warning lights,when turn key into on position you'll notice a yellow key symbal, it should flash then go out. If it flashes then goes to solid on, it means the system does not recognize signal from key. This can be because of wrong key(original valet key will not start car) or key for whatever reason has been deprogrammed. Which can only be done by dealership unfortunately. If system is working(light does go out) then you need to look at possible brake switch sensor,park/neutral safety switch on shifter, and for signal at started when key turned to start position

Car won't start? Try this:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.

i have posted this solution before, I will give you the short version. On the steering column, under the left side of the cowling, on the opposite side directly across from where the key goes in the ignition,... there is a wire loom screwed to that end with 2 screws, remove this and clean the inside of both sides CAREFULLY, dont break anything. expensive dealer part! just scrape it lightly and wipe a little, carefully re assemble, dont bend it, dont screw it back in too tight, you cant make it go together any closer than it will. This solution solves a number of odd problems attributed to ACURA quitting , battery not charging, lights flickering turn signals not working, a lot of things, so i think everyone should do this to there ACURA, and its EASY!
