Acura NSX - 2002 Fuse Box Diagram

Acura NSX - 2002 Fuse Box Diagram

If you need to charge the battery
after storing the car, make sure you
do it outside the car. Do not connect
a battery charger to the jump start
terminal in the engine compartment
fuse box.
Disconnect the terminals to prevent
damage to the car’s electrical system,
and remove the battery from the
front compartment so hydrogen gas
does not build up during charging.
You need to remove the spare tire
holder before removing the battery.

Charging the battery with the cables
connected can seriously damage your
car’s electronic controls. Detach the
battery cables before connecting the
battery to a charger.

Diagnosing why your engine won’t
start falls into two areas, depending
on what you hear when you turn the
key to START (III):
You hear nothing, or almost
nothing. The engine’s starter
motor does not operate at all, or
operates very slowly.
You can hear the starter motor
operating normally, or the starter
motor sounds like it is spinning
faster than normal, but the engine
does not start up and run.
Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Check the voltmeter reading. Turn
on the headlights and check their
brightness. If the voltmeter does
not register and the headlights are
very dim or don’t light at all, the
battery is discharged. See
on page
.
If the voltmeter reads normally
and the headlights are bright, turn
the key to START (III) then
release it.
Your car has the Immobilizer
System. You should use a
properly-coded master or valet key
to start the engine (see page
).
A key that is not properly coded
will cause the immobilizer system
indicator in the dash panel to blink
rapidly.
When you turn the ignition switch to
START (III), you do not hear the
normal noise of the engine trying to
start. You may hear a clicking sound
or series of clicks, or nothing at all.
Check these things:
Check the transmission interlock.
If you have a manual transmission,
the clutch pedal must be pushed
all the way to the floor or the
starter will not operate. With an
automatic transmission, it must be
in Park or Neutral.
If the headlights do not dim, check
the condition of the fuses. If the
fuses are OK, there is probably
something wrong with the
electrical circuit for the ignition
switch or starter motor. You will
need a qualified technician to
determine the problem.(See
on page
.)

There may be an electrical
problem, such as no power to the
fuel pump. Check all the fuses
(see page
).
If you find nothing wrong, you will
need a qualified technician to find
the problem. See
on page
.
In this case, the starter motor’s
speed sounds normal, or even faster
than normal, when you turn the
ignition switch to START (III), but
the engine does not run.
Do you have fuel? Turn the
ignition switch to ON (II) for a
minute and watch the fuel gauge.
The low fuel level warning light
may not be working, so you were
not reminded to fill the tank.
Are you using the proper starting
procedure? Refer to
on page
.
If the headlights dim noticeably or
go out when you try to start the
engine, either the battery is dis-
charged or the connections are
corroded. Check the condition of the
battery and terminal connections
(see page
). You can then try
jump starting the car from a booster
battery (see page
).

Connect the second jumper cable
to the negative (
) terminal on
the booster battery. Connect the
other end to the boss on the intake
manifold as shown. Do not
connect this jumper cable to any
other part of the engine.
Connect one jumper cable to the
JUMP START terminal in the fuse
box. Connect the other end to the
positive (
) terminal on the
booster battery.
Open the rear window and engine
cover. Locate the engine
compartment fuse box on the
driver’s side of the compartment.
Remove the fuse box cover.

All the electrical circuits in your car
have fuses to protect them from a
short circuit or overload. These
fuses are located in three fuse boxes.

The interior fuse box is underneath
the dashboard on the driver’s side.
To open it, turn the knob as shown.
The engine compartment fuse box is
located next to the air cleaner
housing. To open, push the tab as
shown.
The under-hood fuse box is located
in the front of the engine compart-
ment on the passenger’s side. To
open it, push the tab as shown.

Check the smaller fuses by pulling
out the fuse with the fuse puller
provided in the interior fuse box.
Remove the cover from the fuse
box.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK
(0). Make sure the headlights and
all other accessories are off.
Check each of the large fuses in
the under-hood and engine
compartment fuse boxes by
looking through the top at the wire
inside. Removing these fuses
requires a Phillips-head screw-
driver.
If something electrical in your car
stops working, the first thing you
should check for is a blown fuse.
Determine from the chart on pages
and
, or the diagram on the
fuse box lid, which fuse or fuses
control that component. Check those
fuses first, but check all the fuses
before deciding that a blown fuse is
not the cause. Replace any blown
fuses and check the component’s
operation.

FUSE
Look for a burned wire inside the
fuse. If it is burned, replace it with
one of the spare fuses of the same
rating or lower.
If you cannot drive the car without
fixing the problem, and you do not
have a spare fuse, take a fuse of the
same rating or a lower rating from
one of the other circuits. Make sure
you can do without that circuit
temporarily (such as the cigarette
lighter or radio).
If you replace the blown fuse with a
spare fuse that has a lower rating, it
might blow out again. This does not
indicate anything wrong. Replace the
fuse with one of the correct rating as
soon as you can.
If the replacement fuse of the
same rating blows in a short time,
there is probably a serious
electrical problem in your car.
Leave the blown fuse in that
circuit and have your car checked
by a qualified mechanic.

Replacing a fuse with one that has a
higher rating greatly increases the
chances of damaging the electrical
system. If you do not have a replace-
ment fuse with the proper rating for the
circuit, install one with a lower rating.
