It is mounted on the driver side of the engine, below the left exhaust manifold. The left CV axle must be removed to remove the starter.

Attempted to jump start my 2001 3.5 rl acura and

10gage cables?
does engine turn by hand? if not,its seized.
the starter can pull 500 amps. (if cold) its called a series wound motor.
and the harder the engine turns, the more amps and HP from this
electric motor. id turn it by hand, if you can turn the engine crank
by hand than try real jumper cable (they cost more) and if they
fail the starter is jammed, or is shorted.
starters can be dead, shorted, open, weak, or jammed.
if the engine spins, take the starter to any autostore, they test it for free.

My acura rl 3.5 2005 don't start, but the batery is good and all accesories work!

Hmm, sounds to me like a bad starter. If you can see it and get at it easy enough, I would make sure the connections on it are tight.

Then useing a test light, test the smaller lead for power while someone tries cranking it over.

If it has power at the terminal then you need a new starter.
