What make my 2005 Acura RL AC blow out heat not cold air

There could be several causes. Someone will need to do some more troubleshooting to determine the likely cause. For example, it could be low on R-134a in which case the A/C compressor clutch would either not engage or might cycle rapidly. The blend door could be broken, causing air to always flow through the heater core. Or, your RL might use an electronic flow valve to shut off coolant flow to the heater core, and that valve could be failing. The HVAC control module may be functioning incorrectly and always calling for heat. Or one of the temperature sensors may be faulty and telling the HVAC control module that the vent temperature is colder than requested and therefore it provides more heat.

I have a 1998 Acura 3.0 CL and the radio had an error 3 last week. I had to take the console and radio out in order to find the radio serial number and got the radio code from Acura, since mine was...

I don't see this as related to the console. This issue is usually caused by the idle air control valve. The valve may be bad or possibly the wiring. If it's the wiring, normally the computer will turn on the engine light.
You can check the valve operation using a common obd2 scanner in data mode.
Here is more info from
Engine idle speeds are controlled by the PCM through the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve mounted on the throttle body. The PCM sends voltage pulses to the IAC motor windings causing the IAC motor shaft and pintle to move in or out a given distance (number of steps) for each pulse (called counts). The movement of the pintle controls the airflow around the throttle plate, which in turn, controls engine idle speed. IAC valve pintle position counts can be observed using a scan tool. Zero counts correspond to a fully closed passage, while 140 counts or more corresponds to full flow.
Idle speed can be categorized in 2 ways: actual (controlled) idle speed and minimum idle speed. Controlled idle speed is obtained by the PCM positioning the IAC valve pintle. Resulting idle speed is determined by total air flow (IAC/passage + PCV + throttle valve + calibrated vacuum leaks). Controlled idle speed is specified at normal operating conditions, which consists of engine coolant at normal operating temperature, air conditioning compressor OFF, manual transaxle in neutral or automatic transaxle in D .
Minimum idle air speed is set at the factory with a stop screw. This setting allows a certain amount of air to bypass the throttle valves regardless of IAC valve pintle positioning. A combination of this air flow and IAC pintle positioning allows the PCM to control engine idle speed. During normal engine idle operation, the IAC valve pintle is positioned a calibrated number of steps (counts) from the seat. No adjustment is required during routine maintenance. Tampering with the minimum idle speed adjustment may result in premature failure of the IAC valve or improperly controlled engine idle operation.

TESTING The IAC can be monitored with an appropriate and Data-stream capable scan tool

Where can I locate the PGM-F1 relay and what process would I have to do to replace the fuel pump on a 1998 Acura RL?

1998 Acura 2.3cl will not idle

idle control valve is either blocked or damaged this controls engine at low revs or idle, removing the pcv is just letting more air into the fuel system, but this will not be controlled airflow. this is the under side of the idel control valve
underside_with_valve-02v24stlnrwd2v1pzef3romw-4-5.jpg top centre is the wiring connection, this is what needs cleaning or replacing. they more than likely just needs a good clean, also clean the MAF and replace the air filter as if this part stops working there has to be a reason from the air intake. MAF use MAF cleaner only. idle valve clean with carb cleaner give it a good soaking, and shack out an flush again do this a few times and then shake it out then spray loads inside and leave to soak. for about an hour and shake out the rest a flush it one last time. and leave to dry. then refit. when no more dirt comes out.
