you may have a dead battery or bad battery connections. try jumpstarting the car. if it starts but the battery wont stay charged, have the battery load tested and test the alternator.

I'm having the same problem with my 06 acura. I have been reading a lot of posts and everyone wants to say it's battery or cables but I know what you are going through. Best I can tell is either the ignition switch or relay. I was wondering if it had to do with my clutch because it hasn't been working that well and you have to push it in to start. Hmmmm

I have an Acura 2000 RL 3.5 same problem anybody know what's wrong with it got a new alternator on it lights came on dashboard everything lights up how to have it towed home anybody have any answers what can I look for what was their problem and how did they fix it

Cindy, you should post a new question instead of hooking up to an old one. this is over 2 years old and if you post a new question of your own, all the gurus can see it. if you post on someone elses question then only the people who followed it originally can se it. anyway, first of all check all battery connections, both ends and have the computer scanned for codes. also, charge the battery up all the way and have it load tested.
