Radio code for acura 2003 3.2 tl


Generally this wokr in newer Honda and Acura's...
1. Turn on engine w/ radio off. Push and hold down buttons 1, 6, and power.
2. Got the letter "U" followed by 4 numbers and then letter "L" followed by 4 numbers; write down those numbers.
3. Go to Honda.com
4. Click on Owners home link.
5. On that page you should see an option for retrieving radio codes for honda/acura
6. You will need to enter Vin#, home phone number and zip code of the original owner. This will then give you the radio code.

Hope helps.

The above tells you how to retrieve the serial no. from the display of the radio by pushing certain buttons.

Also, some cars have a card with serial no. in the left part of the glove box.

Ever since I replaced the battery in my '96 Acura tl, the radio/cd playerwon/t play. It displays C0DE:E. Is there a general code?


You have to go to an Acura dealer and they will be able to give you the code when you give them the serial number.

Also keep in mind that Acura is known to put the radio code on a sticker, place in an odd location of your car, such as the trunk, glovebox, etc.

Furthermore, you don't have to remove the head unit in order to find out its serial number. Just follow the instructions below:

RETRIEVING THE AUDIO UNIT SERIAL NUMBER

To reduce warranty and customer costs whenever an anti-theft code is lost, the audio unit’s serial number can be retrieved without having to remove the unit. To recall the serial number, follow these steps:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the accessory (I) position.

2. Turn on the audio unit. Make sure “CODE” appears on the display.

3. Turn off the audio unit.

4. Press and hold the number 1 and number 6 preset buttons at the same time, and then turn on the unit. The serial number will appear in two parts – the first
four digits followed by the last four digits, and then the sequence will repeat.

5. Enter these eight digits into DCS to retrieve the antitheft code.

I need a radio code for my 1999 acura TL.


You must contact the parts department of your local Acura dealer to get this code. You will need to show them your car's registration to prove that you are the owner. You may be able to get the code with only the registration and the VIN code (found on the registration). Some manufacturers require the serial number on the radio, which would require that the radio be removed from the car to see the serial number.
