Acura TL - 2012 Fuse Box Diagram

Acura TL - 2012 Fuse Box Diagram

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 or on models with keyless
access system, press the engine
start/stop button to set START
Mode (see page
), but the engine
does not run.
Turn the ignition switch to the
START (III) position or on models
with keyless access system, press
the engine start/stop button to set
START Mode (see page
). 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 connec-
tions (see page
). You can
then try jump starting the vehicle
from a booster battery (see page
).
Are you using a properly coded
key or keyless access remote (on
models with keyless access
system)? An improperly coded key
or keyless access remote will
cause the immobilizer system
indicator in the instrument panel
to blink rapidly (see page
).

Do you have your keyless access
system remote with you? The
vehicle will not start without the
remote within operating range and
with the keyless access main
switch in the glove box turned on.
Are you using the proper starting
procedure? Refer to
on pages
and
.
If you are unable to stop the
engine normally while in the Park
position, see
on page
.
You may need to hold the start/
stop button down or hold the key
in the START (III) position until
the engine starts. It can be held
for up to 15 seconds.
There may be an electrical
problem, such as no power to the
fuel pump. Check all the fuses
(see page
).
Do you have fuel? Check the fuel
gauge; the warning indicator may
not be working.
If you find nothing wrong, you will
need a qualified technician to find
the problem. See
on page
.

The vehicle’s fuses are contained in
three fuse boxes.
The interior fuse box is located
under the dashboard on the driver’s
side. The fuse label is attached
under the steering column.
The passenger’s side interior fuse
box is on the lower passenger’s side
panel. To remove the fuse box lid,
put your finger in the notch on the
lid, and pull it upward slightly, then
pull it toward you and take it out of
its hinges.
The under-hood fuse box is on the
driver’s side next to the air cleaner
housing.
To access the under-hood fuse box,
remove the left-side engine
compartment cover (see page
).
To access the fuse box, turn the
knob on the under cover one-quarter
turn and pull the front of the cover
straight down to remove it from the
dashboard.

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 or the fuse label,
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 if the device works.
Remove the cover from the fuse
box.
Check each of the large fuses in
the under-hood fuse box by
looking at the wire inside.
Removing these fuses requires a
Phillips-head screwdriver.
Turn the ignition switch
to the
LOCK (0) position.
Make sure the headlights and all
other accessories are off.

Models equipped with the keyless access
system have an engine start/stop button
instead of an ignition switch. VEHICLE OFF
(LOCK) Mode is the equivalent of LOCK (0).

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.
Check the smaller fuses in the
under-hood fuse box and all the
fuses in the interior fuse boxes by
pulling out each one with the fuse
puller provided on the back of the
under-hood fuse box cover.
Also check the combined fuse box in
the under-hood fuse box.

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.
Your vehicle has spare fuses on the
back of the under-hood fuse box
cover.

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.
