Question about 2002 Acura RSX

Open Question

My 2002 Acura RSX cranks but won't start. Good fuel pressure but getting no spark.

The car has not been driven in a couple of years. I got it from a police auction and had to have the code reset at the dealership to match with the key before I could get it to even crank.

SOURCE: No spark, no start

There are typical problems on the Tegs, you should check your main relay, it is underneath the steering column area, look for 1x2 box, might be drown or black. Pop it open and see if there are cracks on the solder, you'll have to look real close. If there are, find a buddy that knows how to solder and redo them. Remove old solder and replace. The next thing you should check is the distributor. This symptoms for the distributor is well no spark, usually after it's been driven, it dies then no spark. good luck

Could be the main relay. It's behind the dash up above your gas pedal. Look for a gray and brownish box with one large plug in it. Should be easy to find since you don't have cruise control. It will be secured with one 10mm. You can bring it into reach with it still plugged in. Try starting it while tapping on the little plastic box. If it starts, pry off the cover with a flat head screwdriver and re-solder the broken connections. The break in the solder will be on the side with the sharp little things. It will be smaller than a hair. To find it you will need to wiggle it. Have plenty of light. Just hold the soldering tool on the broken one until the solder puddles around it and you're fixed.

How do I fix my 1998 E36 316i South African Edition BMW which won't switch on after the Tumbler and Tumbler Housing has been replaced with new parts and the starter motor and code box has been tested?

A BMW 'specialist' is not the same as a BMW dealership who have the benefit of more experience, computer diagnostics, computer rectification and knowledge right back to BMW in Germany.

The car has an immobiliser which is driven by a chip in the key and a chip in the tumbler housing. The two have to match codes and be paired. Your specialist should know this, I am not a BMW anything, but that behaviour sounds like an anti-theft device kicking in especially for the South African market. You get hijacked and your car stops well after the incident.

I have a 1998 corvette that has been giving me the blues because after being driven for ten miles or more, the automatic shifter won't shift out of park after it has been sitting for 8 hours at work or...

The bcm would contribute to the shift lock issues. I would try to get one out of a salvage yard and match all the numbers. What were the codes that they retrieved?

Computor will not reset after emission repair work

unhook the battery for about ten minutes... hook it back up... if the light still comes on.... go to your local autozone and have them scan it for the code(s) (free). incidentally if the light comes back on .... they didn't likely fix your problem. also if that stereo is of the anti-theft variety... make sure you know the code and how to enter it.
