I think that your only bet would be to take it to an Acura dealership. The service department should be able to reset the radio.

You must pay for this information. The code was provided with the car when it was sold new. Either see the dealer or try this website

My acura 2002 MDX does not start nor crank... I see red light is blinking( security system)

you more then likely have an anti theft device, trying putting a flasher on either left or right and try, due all the dash gauges light up when you put the key to the on position? you can try unplugging battery and replugging it, ensure you have the radio code for stock radio before doing so.

Need help unlock code for radio. Acura TL 1999

Hi Anonymous, You can check out the link below for more information or take your registration papers with your licence (licence is to prove YOU own the car) to a car dealer ie: Holden, Ford, Chrysler and ask at the sales office for the RADIO SECURITY PIN NUMBER, You'll receive your Radio security pin number and Radio serial number. These numbers belong to your car and once you have them DON'T loose them because in Australia some dealers charge a fee and some don't.... Hope this helped....CHEERS..

2006 acura mdx. battery completely dead now I

You need to get the serial number off the sticker attached to the radio. It will require pulling apart your dash. Call an Acura dealership with that serial number and they should be able to provide you the code. Or you can take it directly to the dealer but you will be charged labor.

I need a code to unlock my radio for an acura tl

The security code is normally pasted on the left or right side of the glove compartment once you open it look on the outside of the sides. It's a little sticker. Look both inside and outside of the glove compartment. If its not there then you will have to call the dealer, try the Acura dealer you purchased the car from. Also, if this is not the original radio in there, you will likely have to take it to them and show some ID to prove its yours. GOOD LUCK!

Best way to find this is look in side your owners manual. It is security code to protect from theft. If not call a Acura dealer or the shop you had it done at. They should help.

Radio Reset codes

  • You will need to find your radio serial number...this is how you can do it on a 2001 MDX
  • Press preset buttons 1 and 6 at the same time.
  • Turn on radio.
  • An 10 digit serial number will appear on display. make sure to include the small numbers or letters as well. This only works if the radio is locked.
    After getting the radio serial number you will need your VIN the dealership where you purchased the vehicle and give them both numbers and they can get it for you...thats the only way I know how to get the code.
