My 1997 acura 3.5rl won't start.

Asked by Aug 17, 2014 at 07:49 PM about the 1997 Acura RL 3.5L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Most of the time when trying to start the car the starter engages but won't start. Other
times the starter has no response. But in both senerios their is a green lighted key that
shows up on the display panel. Yesterday it did that but eventually started. I think it must
be a security malfunction but not sure.
