Anti theft syastem is not letting me turn on the car, 2007…

Anti theft syastem is...

Anti theft syastem is not letting me turn on the car

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Acura?

2007 acura tsx already tried disconnecting and reconnecting battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Yeah the battery is new, so is starter. All the accessory lights come on etc., but initially the car alarm kept going off every time trying to start

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

Its my boyfriends car and he's stranded right now with the car so im trying to find a fix to relay to him

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

I dont think so!

Ask Your Own Acura Question

try this then. turn the key forward to just before start(don't start) then back to off position and push your reset alarm button (small black button to the lower left of steering wheel) push in once and release then push and hold in for 10 seconds. Now try to start. If it starts let run a few seconds then turn off and make sure it starts up if it does not start hold the button in and turn keys to start and try and start should work if the fist time didn't. If it does not work you may have a electrical issue or bad ground. Under hood take out horn fuse to keep quiet you will hear and see light inside showing alarms still being triggered.

Hey! Sorry for not keeping you updated. Nothing has worked, he had to get car towed home. I guess he’ll just have to get a mechanic to look at it in person?

sure looks that way, the transponder probably dumped the key code

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.

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.
