My 1997 Acura RL has been excellent. Rarely had any problem.

Today, it started once fine. But, then it only cranks but the engine doesn't start.
I am fairly handy. Any clues about what I should do?

Good place to start is the main fuel relay (Acura Honda OEM 39400SZ5A01 RL TL ECM Relay 39400-sz5-a01). This is a common problem with first generation RL's.

No Crank, No start, not even dashboard lights.
As turning key on, dash lights, AC, radko all flashed off, with a arching sound from under dash. Fuses are alive. Haven't checked relays. Anyone care to surmise which relays to check first?
