Question about 2002 Acura RSX
The car has not been driven in a couple of years. I got it from a police auction and had to have the code reset at the dealership to match with the key before I could get it to even crank.

SOURCE: No spark, no start
There are typical problems on the Tegs, you should check your main relay, it is underneath the steering column area, look for 1x2 box, might be drown or black. Pop it open and see if there are cracks on the solder, you'll have to look real close. If there are, find a buddy that knows how to solder and redo them. Remove old solder and replace. The next thing you should check is the distributor. This symptoms for the distributor is well no spark, usually after it's been driven, it dies then no spark. good luck

Could be the main relay. It's behind the dash up above your gas pedal. Look for a gray and brownish box with one large plug in it. Should be easy to find since you don't have cruise control. It will be secured with one 10mm. You can bring it into reach with it still plugged in. Try starting it while tapping on the little plastic box. If it starts, pry off the cover with a flat head screwdriver and re-solder the broken connections. The break in the solder will be on the side with the sharp little things. It will be smaller than a hair. To find it you will need to wiggle it. Have plenty of light. Just hold the soldering tool on the broken one until the solder puddles around it and you're fixed.
