Acura RL - 2011 Fuse Box Diagram

Acura RL - 2011 Fuse Box Diagram

When you turn the ignition switch to
the LOCK (0) position and release it,
or remove the built-in key from the
ignition switch, the steering wheel
automatically moves fully in and up.
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
install the fuse.
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.
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.

Your vehicle’s audio system may
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.
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.
You should have received a radio
code card that lists your audio
system’s code and serial numbers. 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 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.
The system will retain your AM and
FM presets even if power is
disconnected.
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 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 have a My Acura account, you
can retrieve the anti-theft code
online.

NOTE:
You can see the current latitude,
longitude, and elevation at any time
when you press the COMPASS
button or say ‘‘Display map guide.’’
The date and time is also displayed.
If the battery is disconnected
or the fuse for the compass system
is removed, the system may require
GPS initialization (see page
).
If the system does not receive the
elevation information, the display
shows only current latitude and
longitude.
If the GPS reception is low, the
display shows a ‘‘Low GPS
reception’’ message.

When you turn the ignition switch to
the START (III) position, you do not
hear the normal noise of the engine
trying to start. You may hear a
clicking sound, a series of clicks, or
nothing at all.
Turn the ignition switch to the
START (III) position. 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
.
Diagnosing why the engine won’t
start falls into two areas, depending
on what you hear when you turn the
ignition switch to the START (III)
position:
Check these things:
Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position. 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
.
Check the transmission interlock.
The transmission must be in Park
or neutral or the starter will not
operate.
Make sure the remote is with you,
inside the vehicle.
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
).
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.
You hear nothing, or almost
nothing. The engine’s starter
motor does not operate at all, or
operates very slowly.

In this case, the starter motor’s
speed sounds normal, or even faster
than normal, when you turn the
ignition switch to the START (III)
position, 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.
You cannot start your vehicle by
pushing or pulling it.

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.

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.
Put the transmission in Park, and
set the parking brake.
Remove the battery cover (see
page
), then remove the
secondary under-hood fuse box
cover from the positive (
)
terminal on the battery.
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.

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.
ʴ
ʵ
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.
If the booster battery is in another
vehicle, have an assistant start
that vehicle and run it at a fast idle.
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.
Connect the second jumper cable
to the negative (
) terminal on
the booster battery. Connect the
other end to the engine hanger as
shown. Do not connect this jumper
cable to any other part of the
engine.

Connecting the jumper cable to the
secondary under-hood fuse box causes
the fuses to blow.
The fuses are located in five fuse
boxes. The interior fuse boxes are
located under the dashboard on the
driver’s and passenger’s side.
To remove the fuse box lid, put your
finger in the notch on the lid, pull it
toward you, and take it out of its
hinges.
To open the secondary fuse box lid,
push the tab in the direction as

Turn the ignition switch to the
LOCK (0) position. Make sure the
headlights and all other
accessories are off.
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.
Remove the cover from the fuse
box.

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.
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.

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 technician.
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. Make
sure you can do without that circuit
temporarily (such as the accessory
power socket).
If you replace the blown fuse with a
spare fuse that has a lower rating, it
might blow out again. This does not
indicate that anything is wrong.
Replace the fuse with one of the
correct rating as soon as you can.

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 manual.
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
).
If the compass system fuse is
removed, the compass 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. Enter the four-
digit anti-theft security code (see
page
). You will also need to
reset the clock according to the
setting the clock instructions (see
page
).
