Question about 1998 Acura TL
Your option if you have no wiring diagram
or experience with vehicles, is a repair shop
Disregard anything your told when it comes to
vehicles, as they have to be properly diagnosed
to find a problem,any conversation or attempt
to throw parts at something you know nothing about,
is a waste of time

SOURCE: Acura MDX A/C won't come on
I went to an Acura dealer to buy the transistor for the rear A/C unit. The service advisor told me that the problem with the front A/C was probably due to a defective front transistor / resistor. I bought that part too.
The front transistor is located next to the blower motor under the dash on the passenger's side. It is secured by three or four small bolts. The one on the bottom left is very close to the carpet and the most difficult to get off and put back on.
The rear transistor is located behind the carpeted trim panel on the center console (driver's side). The carpeted trim panel is secured by clips only - there are no screws, so remove it carefully starting at the side near the accellerator pedal. Once the panel has been removed, reach inside a small hole in the metal frame to access the rear transistor. It is removed by twisting it and pulling it out. The hole in the frame is small and you might find pliers helpful.
After replacing both parts, the front and rear A/C are working. Apparently these transistors are common failures. If the A/C is out in your Acura MDX and the fuse checks good, a new transistor will likely solve your problem.

same thing happen to my car, it was the distributor. FIRST CHECK YOUR PLUG WIRES TO YOUR DISTRIBUTOR BECAUSE ONE OF MY FACTORY WIRE DOES NOT HAVE A GOOD FIT. THE LACK OF CONNECTION BURNED OUT THE METAL CONNECTOR IN THE WIRE. I REPLACE WITH PERFORMANCE PLUG WIRES.
