I have a 2004 TL that I replaced the starter on and was still having problems starting. Here's how I fixed the problem(thank you Jesus for the word of knowledge): The positive end of the battery cable had a Y in it with one cable going to the starter, and the other going elsewhere. I cut the cable housing back from the terminal, back to the Y and found the starter cable very corroded. I bought another terminal, but the connection was not great. I then went to my local battery exchange, and he had a terminal that fit both wires together well. So try this and get your Acura back out on the road .
