Why can I not e file? it says opening day is the 3rd but it is telling me to try back on the electronic filing opening date.

Where did you see opening day is the 3rd?  Does it say that on Turbo Tax?

IT'S TOO EARLY TO FILE!  TurboTax is not yet open for filing.   Come back towards the end of  the week to finish up.  And then they will just hold them all until the IRS opens Efiling on Jan 23.

The IRS will open efiling on Jan 23, 2017

No point rushing it turns out!!!!  And lots to lose too in fact!

Certainly, you can start entering all the various personal data that you have, and if you want to try to guess what your Form W-2 will look like and also any Forms1099 that you might receive, such as Interest Income, feel free to do so for ESTIMATION purposes only.
However, read this post to learn why others have found it to be a very serious mistake to go ahead and submit your filing before you have gotten all your W-2s and 1099s.  

Go to this link and learn why the earliest that the IRS will even see your tax return filed is January 23, 2017, and the earliest that the IRS might deposit your refund is February 3, 2017.  Go to this https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/3405630
