Re: driver side unlock code
Unfortunately, it looks like you can't actually change it. You can program your own code, but my '97 manual says that if you program your own code, the vehicle will accept both the original AND the one you programmed.
Here are the instructions anyway:
1) Enter the original code.
2) Within 5 seconds press the 1/2 button.
3) Within 5 seconds press the 5 digits you want to program.
To erase your programmed number:
1) Enter the original code.
2) Press the 1/2 button within 5 seconds.
3) Wait 6 seconds.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

the code indicates a bank 1problem.so anything that is common between both sides of the motor will not set this code,if anything it would set a different code and show a common code for both sides of the motor,vacuum leak would not be the problem as it would also affect the way the motor runs,bad /dirty maf sensor again affects both sides and a code difference,bad coolant again affects both sides and different code,an 02 sensor can show which side the problem is and could cause the setting code.bad spark plugs can also cause this code, an injector one or more for this side can cause this,bad fuel pressure regulator will affect both sides again.so I would check spark plugs, check the 02 sensor for proper voltage readings on the left side of the motor(driver`s side),it`s uncommon for injectors on one side to only go bad and not injectors on both sides.if the plugs are okay and don`t need changing you may need to check for tune-up items such as plug wires.it sounds like the motor is not burning the fuel properly giving the rich running code
I hate to tell you this, but if you don't know the code to unlock the radio, you are bound for your local Acura dealer to unlock it for you. The radio thinks it has been "stolen" due to the loss of battery power. Nobody online can tell you what code is programmed into your radio. If someone did know, it would be pretty dumb to publish it online anyway...someone could steal your radio and use it in their car if they had the code. (This is the reason for the code in the first place - to make your radio totally worthless to someone trying to steal it. That way, they won't bother trying.)
The dealership can use your VIN to look up an "Override" code. They can then reprogram your radio to accept a number that you can remember so you don't have this problem again.
Be sure to take your picture ID and your proof of registration in to the dealer with you when you go. They will not unlock a radio for anyone except the registered owner of the vehicle. (At least, they're not supposed to.)
Do a Google search and also look on Ebay. Might take more than 1 day of looking since items change constantly. If you have any nearby wrecking yards look there too. I think 96, 97, 98 and maybe 99 share the same headlight assembly.
I don't think any of those items can cause a problem in only one direction.
<div>I would have someone sit in the driver's seat with a running engine (maybe someone you trust?) and with the transmission in Park, have them slowly move the steering wheel slowly from one lock to the other while you study the wheel behavior and look for any odd movement of them.</div>
<div>I suspect you may have some serious wear or damage on one side or the other causing the one-sided problem.</div>
<div>If you cannot see anything amiss, I would recommend you have a pro take a look at it; steering a a wee bit critical to only guess at the problem. </div><!-- from fixya rte -->
HI,WHEN YOU REMOVE DOOR PANEL,AT DOOR LOCK YOU WILL SEE PLUG WITH RED ITEM PULL THIS AND IT WILL RELEASE PLUG, GIVE IT A CLEAN,AND TRY LOCKS AGAIN. ALSO IF YOU HAVE PROBS WITH CODED BUTTONS,THEY DO WEAR,JUST LOOK IN YOUR HANDBOOK,AND CHANGE CODE WITH FRESH BUTTONS.THANKS
look on the side of your glove box on the casing of the glove box compartment and if there is a sticker with i think it is a 4 or 5 digit code press that code in. and it should unlock. if not you can always pull the stereo out and get have the dealership look it up and give you the code. if you have the owners manual they normally put the code in the back pages of the owners manual as well. if you cant find it post another problem i will try to help
