1999 Acura CL Recalls
Honda has recalled 1998-1999 Accord and Acura CL, and 1999 Odyssey and Acura TL vehicles because the ignition cylinder body may be worn, which can cause the shift interlock not to function properly. If the vehicle does not securely lock in "Park" due to a worn ignition cylinder, the vehicle may roll, which can cause a safety issue. Dealers will inspect the cylinder body for wear and replace the cylinder body, collar, and latch plate if necessary. If there are no signs of wear and all is operating as designed, dealers will replace the latch plate.
The electrical contacts in the ignition switch may be worn. This may cause the engine to stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin by June 14, 2002.

They had an aftermarket converter that tookcare of the problem. So, $2800.00 later it is running ...

There are times when it starts right up and others when the steering wheel has to be tilted up or down in order for the car to start. The Acura dealership sent a recall order a couple of years ago concerning the ignition switch being faulty and causing the car t...
