2002 Acura RL
My 02 RL has been having intermittent stalling issues over the last year. When I slowed down and came to a stop it stalled on me a few times. It also stalled a few times while the engine was simply idling. The door lights (all fuses are good) stopped working (even when doors are open) although although all dash lights work just fine. Just recently, I got into my car and it completely refused to start. Engine cranks but won't start. I checked everything I can possibly think of and discovered that the engine gets no fuel. There is a spark but no fuel coming to the engine. The Fuel pump connection has many wires, and 2 or 3 or three of the pins showed 4.77v running through them(i am not sure if they are parallel). Old cars had fuel pumps that had 1 pin and if it was around 11-12v it was good, but this car is a bit confusing especially if you don't have a schematic. In other words I am not even sure if the fuel pump is receiving enough voltage. I have heard if ignition switch fails the dash lights won't work but mines still work. What else can control the fuel pump? I am not sure if this is related but while driving the doors would lock and unlock for no reason. Can it be a security system malfunction? The car has 50K and its driving me nuts. Only if I wasn't a broke college student.
