1999 Acura Starts Occasionally - Help?

Okay, so this is my first time posting so if I screw anything up, my bad.

So... My lovely 1999 Acura TL 3.2 is being a bit of a fussy bitch. It starts occasionally, usually after a day the first time I start it, it actually starts. After that, everything will work but the damned green key icon won't come on and it won't actually start. Now, I know that the ignition switch is often the cause but I literally replaced it four days ago. Still doing the same BS.

Here are the things I've done just in this month alone:

Replaced to alternator
Changed the oil and oil filter
Replaced the spark plugs
Changed the gas cap
Replaced the battery
Replaced the ignition switch
Replaced various fuses

And yet, it is still doing this crap. I'm not a mechanic and honestly, if I had no other choice I'd just get a different car but that just isn't in the cards for me. If anyone can give me advice or help me in any way, I'll greatly appreciate it! And also, I live in a hick town where there is only one mechanic and he is a grade A dickweed who would charge me more than what I paid for the car to really look at it.

I'll go ahead and include the codes that came up when I got them read. At the moment I'm waiting for payday to replace my car battery wires since the negative wire is frayed all to hell. I'll also post a video of what my car does when I try to start it and it doesn't actually start.
