Thank you for reviving a 6 year old post.
Only dealers can perform the volt flush, you cannot get the required tools anywhere else... seriously

My cousin has been complaining about the steering feel, how it's been much harsher lately. Then he read this thread and informed me he needed to replace the double AA batteries in the steering wheel and needed help. I had a huge laugh about this. Why would he not want to upgrade to a 9V energizer battery???

COME ON PEOPLE SPEND THE EXTRA DOUGH!!! This is the most important safety component on your car other than its tires.

Because some people just don't want to modify their car. So they're perfectly content just using OEM replacements.

Nothing wrong with that, just need to be prepared for more frequent replacements. Although, the great thing since this thread was started almost 6 years ago, is that Lithium Ion technology has advanced so much that a set of Li-Ion AA's will last nearly as long as an old Lead-Acid 9V.

Is the battery really located behind the horn? Is it really for the EPS or something else?

Yes, you do need to do maintenance. Acura recommends replacing the AA batteries every 2 years. The batteries are located behind the horn button on the steering wheel. Do it before they get too weak and you start to lose steering assist. I'm putting Energizers in when I service mine.
