1999 Acura RL ProblemsSensor Problems May Cause SRS Light To Turn On
The Airbag (SRS) warning light may illuminate due to one or more failed sensors. Our technicians recommend complete diagnoses of any stored fault codes because these sensors can be very expensive to replace.
The exhaust recirculation valve (EGR) on the 1996-2012 Acura RL may fail, causing:
The EGR valve has open and closed positions, and opens or closes on command from the computer.
Exhaust gases constantly pass through the valve when it is open, leaving carbon deposits on the valve. These carbon deposits may lead the the valve sticking in the open or closed position.
To correct this issue, sometimes it is sufficient to clean the valve, but replacement is recommended in all cases.

These relays send power to the fuel pump and fuel injectors when the key is turned to the “ON” position. So, when they fail, there is no electrical current to the necessary fuel system components to send fuel into the engine, causing engine stalling or failure to start.
In this situation, there are many other possibilities, so testing components is vital for time and money savings.
If the relays test bad, they must be replaced with relays specific for that circuit.
To help prolong the life of your under-hood electrical components, ensure the lid for the fuse block is closed, and any factory sealing material is correctly installed.

1999 Acura RL RecallsAcura Recalls 1996–1998 TL and 1996–1999 RL Models Due to a Loose Transmission Case Bolt
Acura is recalling certain 1996–1998 TL and 1996–1999 RL models because an automatic transmission case bolt may loosen and fall out, allowing the transmission to disengage from the differential. This may cause a loss of power to the drive wheels without warning. Also, a parked vehicle could move unexpectedly if the parking brake is not set. Dealers will install a redesigned transmission case bolt to correct this issue.
