I am having the same problem with the alarm going off and the car not starting. I leave the hood open and try to start it, but it doesn't work. The alarm starts going off the minute I re-connect the battery. I've tried jiggling the key, holding the hood switch open & closed in different ways, but the alarm won't go off when the battery is connected, and of course the car won't start. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I had this happen to me, but the bad thing is it did it when I was pulled over talking to cops about an accident I saw. I put the key in the driver's door with the hood closed, alarm going off and lock and unlock the doors a few times with your main key. (all Vigors came with three keys from factory; one that will do everything and two other (valet) keys that will only start the car and unlock and lock the doors). I had to do it a few times to my car, but according to Acura and my own test that's all you should have to do. This is just another one of the joys of a factory alarm system.

Just bought a 92 Vigor. Just put in a new starter, and I'm not happy with the results of my effort. Brand new starter and battery have good grounds, tried connecting both positives on the starter, and it still just clicks. Could it be a bent flywheel? By the way, it still bump starts right up with ease and runs great! Suggestions please!

Beware of Craigslist. Every car I've got on there did not last more than 3 months.
But anyway, I have a 93 Acura Vigor. I love it. It never has problems. It's got 161 thousand miles. About to put a new timing belt on it, but if you want a nice car, the Acura Vigor is the way to go if you can find one without too many miles. They're really cheap to fix too if something goes wrong.
Thank you for reading.
Any questions about how to fix something on the car, email me at email@example.com.

Hey man, did you ever find the problem with your Vigor?? Did you get the car to start??

Just bought a 1992 Vigor with 69,000 original miles. One owner. I spoke to the original owner and it was driven very little as a second car, but well maintained.
First thing I did was change the timing belt and transmission fluid.
Had the alarm go off recently and I'm about to flip the hood sensor as was done in other posts.
The car is immaculate inside and out... I call it my 'time warp' car because it looks like it just came off the showroom floor. Love my Vigor.

Glad people are finding what I found outstanding in 1992! 320,000 miles! Many Vigor problems; radio light, dash lights display only half of them work, and my cruise control is not working for some reason and my heater/ AC motor is going to cost me a thousand dollars. But every cool day I wash wax it and watch people in the next car say, "what is that" kinda cool to be noticed! Especially on a cool day! Feels really extra cool! Gives a 62 year old man what he had 25 YEARS AGO! Beat that! Jazzy! Jazzy! Jazzy! KEEP THIS FEELING ALIVE!!!
