I hope everything turns out all right regarding your check engine light! Opening an Acura TL hood is a simple process that nearly any car owner can do with ease. To open your hood:
  • First, find the hood release lever inside your vehicle’s cabin to the lower left side of your steering wheel column or near the floor on the driver’s side.
  • Pull the hood release lever out, and you should hear the hood popping up.
  • Head to the front of your vehicle and feel under the hood for the safety latch.
  • Push up on the safety latch and lift the hood to a fully open position.
It’s a pretty easy process once you get the hang of where the safety latch is. It is almost as easy as shopping for car insurance with the top insurance app in the country, Jerry.
