Electrical problem
1999 Acura RL 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 162000 miles

This morning I got in the car and turned on the ignition. I hear clicking and a pop. Then the car is dead. Nothing. When I turn the key, I now hear clicking in the dash behind the steering column. Nothing works. Could it be the main relay switch?
What are your thoughts?

Thanks

Hi chsimpson,

Did you check the battery, its connections and the main fuses?

Are the horn, hazard and headlights working?

You were right.
It was the battery.
I lost a cell in the battery.
It was an 8 yr and I had it 3 yrs.
Replaced and all is well.
Thank you.
