Acura Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
any more advice? it did not start, battery is new and fully charged!
ok does the starter click when trying to start ?
is their any clicking or noises while trying this ?
ok thats good then.
we can try a very simple test if you have a multi meter ?
also we can try and manually jump the starter solenoid to see if this is just a starter problem only.
ok you will need a wire with a female terminal. it will look like a speaker wire end then you can hook up the end to the solenoid wire and then touch it to the battery and see if will click or start you may want to try this a few times and a starter may not work intermently please click here for picture of wire on the shock tower.the connector c113 gray. use the end that goes down to the starter. let me know your results
this picture doesn't look my engine. but i will try this method when i have help tomorrow. i will ask for you again tomorrow evening. i appreciate your help. i thought it could be the alarm relay switch myself? because i did not have starter symptoms before i kept reset the alarm switch to start the darn car??
Yes it is a 2.5 TL. That would be great. I have checked the fuses at least prong type, I don't know how to check the plug in type. I think I may have screwed up the reset switch pressing it so much? Where would the alarm relay switch be???? Thanks so much again for your patience and help. I can't afford to take it to the dealer and other mechanics don't want to mess with it..... or don't know how to fix these factory installed anti-theft alarms. I figured out the code on the radio by calling the original dealer of the car in Pasadena, Ca. I am in Washington State??? The Acura dealer here told me he would have to PULL the radio to get it to work after the battery was replaced. I am a damsel in distress......oh well!
i'm sorry, i don't understand. how do i bypass it??
Thank you so much Dino! Take your time!
Ok Dino please tell me how? i don't even know where the alarm control unit is?? sorry, you got such a difficult one here.....
Thank you. I'm satisfied for now!! I will try this first thing tomorrow morning. Hopefully that will take care of this problem. I will accept this info, when are you usually available online for help ! Just Answer. You have been very helpful and informative!
Dino, Ok, i will certainly try to do what you have suggested before i take it anywhere to be fixed. I will see you if you are available tomorrow at around the same time. I will try to send email again and hit accept. If not, I will let you know tomorrow. Thanks again so much for ALL your time.
