Acura TL s type won't crank

Asked by Aug 21, 2017 at 03:31 PM about the 2002 Acura TL Type-S FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car will not crank it acts like the battery
is dead, but I have 12.57 volts on the battery
when the car is running I have a little over 15
volts at the cables when I turn the ignition
switch to the on position I have power inside
lights, when I go to crank the car everything
goes out what could that be

1 Answer


What is the voltage drop down at the starter? Bad wires from battery will keep car from cranking. Have you tested starter and starter relay?
