Only the horn works,no other power?

Why want car start?

Sometimes when the ABS light goes off,
the buzzing stops, sometimes not.
This is the first time I've heard this
sound.
What could be causing this and is it dangerous to drive when the sound is on?

I just discovered on CAR FAX that recalls where issued in 1999 for all 1996-1998 Acura 3.5RL's with automatic transmissions!!
The recall follows right along with tranny issues we inherited AFTER owning it for only 6 Days!! Recall states that a bolt can drop out of Tranny and cause the entire unit to SEPARATE from the Differential with no warning!!! ALSO.... this can cause these same models of cars to surge forward unexpectedly WHILE IDLING and WITHOUT Being in GEAR AT ALL!! unless the Emergency break is on. this can happen at a Stoplight while you have foot on brake!!!!

happened on freeway,6 days after purchasing from private party. After towing home, have occasionally been able to engage Reverse than shifted to drive.We drove it 3/4 way around block, then coasted it home. We want to make sure #1: can a solenoid or a malfunction computer code have caused this.#2:could it just need a complete tranny flush and filter(change)#3: could it be a relay of some type?
