Default Acura TL not starting

I put in a fresh battery for my Acura TL 1995, and I go to start it, but all I get is a click as all the electronics go dead and then slowly turn back on until another click. While keeping the key turned for a short while, the speedometer jumps a few times. I'm out of ideas and don't really have the cash for a mechanic, anyone got any ideas on how to trouble shoot this?

Default Had a similar problem on my 96 TL...

I had pretty much diagnosed it as the starter going bad, which turned out to be the problem. The problem had been intermittent for a long time, and I had also thought the battery was going and tried replacing the battery.

It was a bear to get at on my 96. Had to partially disassemble the front suspension and remove the driver's side half shaft to get at it. Not a particularly easy DIY. On the 96 TL, the engine is situated longitudinally in the car, not transversely.

Plz donot neglect this problem. Arrange some cah and go to its work station and get it checked fully. Avoiding this can result to some serious mishap which will be painful for you only...
