2009 Acura TL SHawd will not start. Steering wheel locked,

Customer Question
2009 Acura TL SHawd...

2009 Acura TL SHawd will not start. Steering wheel locked, ABS locked, brake will not depress. No sound when pushing ignition button. Lights work, radio etc. All the christmas tree lights flash when trying to start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you applied constant pressure to the steering wheel while turning the key in the ignition?

Push button start

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your TL yourself? What have you tried so far?

Sunday, hoping to get it started myself then take to mechanic tomorrow. I have tried putting the fop(?) key in it slot, versus just having it in the car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's about it.

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, first try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and then reconnect to reset the system

Hi Eric,
Thank you for getting back to me but it is day too late. As the response was so slow and I am unable to implement any suggestions offered, will you wave the fees?
Thank you.

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
