Acura RL - 2005 Fuse Box Diagram

Acura RL - 2005 Fuse Box Diagram

When you turn the ignition switch to
LOCK (0) and release it, or remove
the built-in key from the ignition
switch, the steering wheel
automatically moves fully in and up.
The steering wheel returns to its
original position when you push the
ignition switch or insert the built-in
key back in the ignition switch.
Steering wheel movement is also
controlled by the driving position
memory system (see page
).
To change the ‘‘AUTO TILT &
TELESCOPIC’’ setting, see page
.
If your vehicle’s battery is
disconnected or goes dead, or the
fuse for the power tilt and telescopic
steering wheel is removed, the
power tilt and telescopic steering
wheel system needs to be reset
when you reconnect the battery or
installing the fuse.
Push the ignition switch for more
than 1 second and release it, or
insert the built-in key into the
ignition switch, and remove it. The
steering wheel automatically moves
fully in and up to let you know the
system is reset.
Move the steering wheel to the
highest position and keep that
position by pushing and holding the
adjustment button for more than 1
second. Then, move the steering
wheel to the most inward position,
and keep that position by pushing
and holding the adjustment button
for more than 1 second.

Your vehicle’s audio system will
disable itself if it is disconnected
from electrical power for any reason.
To make it work again, you must
enter a specific five-digit code with
the preset buttons. Because there
are hundreds of number
combinations possible from the five
digits, making the system work
without knowing the exact code is
nearly impossible.
You should have received a card that
lists your audio system code number
and serial number. It is best to store
this card in a safe place at home. In
addition, you should write the audio
system’s serial number in this owner’s
manual.
If you lose the card, you must obtain
the code number from your dealer.
To do this, you will need the audio
system’s serial number.
If your vehicle’s battery is discon-
nected or goes dead, or the radio
fuse is removed, the audio system
will disable itself. If this happens,
you will see ‘‘
’’ in the upper
display the next time you turn on the
system. Use the preset buttons to
enter the five-digit code. The code is
located on the radio code card
included in your owner’s manual kit.
When it is entered correctly, the
radio will start playing.
If you make a mistake entering the
code, do not start over; complete the
five-digit sequence, then enter the
correct code. You have ten tries to
enter the correct code. If you are
unsuccessful in ten attempts, you
must then leave the system on for 1
hour before trying again.
If the code card is lost, your dealer
can access your code with your
radio’s serial number. To access the
serial number, turn the radio on. It
must display ‘‘
’’, then turn
the radio off. Push and hold the
preset 1 and preset 6 buttons, then
push the POWER/VOLUME knob.
The serial number will appear in two
sets of four digits.
The system will retain your A/M and
F/M presets even if power is
disconnected.

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.
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.
Turn the ignition switch to START
(III). 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
).
If the headlights dim noticeably or
go out when you try to start the
engine, either the battery is
discharged or the connections are
corroded. Check the condition of
the battery and terminal
connections (see page
). You
can then try jump starting the
vehicle from a booster battery
(see page
).
Check these things:
Make sure the remote is with you,
inside the vehicle.
Diagnosing why the engine won’t
start falls into two areas, depending
on what you hear when you turn the
ignition switch to START (III):
Check the transmission interlock.
The transmission must be in Park
or neutral or the starter will not
operate.
Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Turn on the headlights, and check
their brightness. If the headlights
are very dim or do not come on at
all, the battery is discharged. 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.
Are you using the proper starting
procedure? Refer to
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
.
Are you using a properly coded
built-in key or remote? An
improperly coded built-in key or
remote will cause the immobilizer
system indicator in the instrument
panel to blink rapidly (see page
).
Do you have fuel? Check the fuel
gauge; the low fuel indicator may
not be working.

Although this seems like a simple
procedure, you should take several
precautions.
Open the hood, and check the
physical condition of the battery.
In very cold weather, check the
condition of the electrolyte. If it
seems slushy or frozen, do not try
jump starting until it thaws.
Turn off all the electrical acces-
sories: heater, A/C, climate
control, stereo system, lights, etc.
You cannot start your vehicle by
pushing or pulling it.
Remove the battery cover (see
page
), then remove the
secondary under-hood fuse box
cover from the positive (
)
terminal on the battery.
Put the transmission in Park, and
set the parking brake.

COVER
A battery can explode if you do
not follow the correct procedure,
seriously injuring anyone
nearby.
Keep all sparks, open flames,
and smoking materials away
from the battery.
If a battery sits in extreme cold, the
electrolyte inside can freeze.
Attempting to jump start with a frozen
battery can cause it to rupture.

Start your vehicle. If the starter
motor still operates slowly, check
that the jumper cables have good
metal-to-metal contact.
Once your vehicle is running,
disconnect the negative cable from
your vehicle, then from the
booster battery. Disconnect the
positive cable from your vehicle,
then from the booster battery.
Reinstall the secondary under-
hood fuse box cover over the
positive (
) terminal of the
battery, then reinstall the battery
cover.
Keep the ends of the jumper
cables away from each other and
any metal on the vehicle until
everything is disconnected.
Otherwise, you may cause an
electrical short.
If the booster battery is in another
vehicle, have an assistant start
that vehicle and run it at a fast idle.
Connect the second jumper cable
to the negative (
) terminal on
the booster battery. Connect the
other end to the grounding point
as shown. Do not connect this
jumper cable to any other part of
the engine.
The numbers in the illustration show
you the order to connect the jumper
cables.
Connect one jumper cable to the
positive (
) terminal on your
vehicle’s battery. Connect the
other end to the positive (
)
terminal on the booster battery.

Turn the ignition switch to LOCK
(0). Make sure the headlights and
all other accessories are off.
Remove the cover from the fuse
box.
If something electrical in your
vehicle 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 device. Check
those fuses first, but check all the
fuses before deciding that a blown
fuse is the cause. Replace any blown
fuses, and check if the device works.
Check each of the large fuses in
the under-hood fuse box by
looking through the top at the wire
inside. Removing these fuses
requires a Phillips-head
screwdriver.
Check the smaller fuses in the
under-hood fuse box and all the
fuses in the interior fuse boxes by
pulling out each fuse with the fuse
puller. The fuse puller is inside the
primary under-hood fuse box.

If you cannot drive the vehicle
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 with
the fuse puller provided in the under-
hood fuse box. Make sure you can
do without that circuit temporarily
(such as the accessory power socket
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 with your
vehicle. Leave the blown fuse in
that circuit, and have your vehicle
checked by a qualified mechanic.
Look for a blown wire inside the
fuse. If it is blown, replace it with
one of the spare fuses of the same
rating or lower.

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
replacement fuse with the proper rating
for the circuit, install one with a lower
rating.
If the fuse for the driving position
memory system is removed, all
stored driving positions will be lost.
To store the driving positions again,
see page
.
If the navigation system fuse is
removed, the navigation system will
disable itself. The next time you turn
on the ignition switch, the system
will require you to enter a PIN
before it can be used. Refer to the
Navigation System Owner’s Manual.
If the radio fuse is removed, the
audio system will disable itself. The
next time you turn on the radio you
will see ‘‘
’’ in the frequency
display. Use the preset buttons to
enter the five-digit code (see page
).
If the fuse for the power tilt
telescopic steering is removed, the
system will be disabled. The system
needs to be reset after reinstalling
the fuse (see page
).
