Question about 1999 Acura Integra

2 Answers

I have a 1999 Acura 3.0 CL that I recently bought used. I had to replace the battery, and so now the Bose radio/CD player won't work because it needs the 5-digit secret code to re-activate it. However, I don't have a manual for the car. Is there any way to retrieve the serial number (or even code itself) without physically removing the unit? If not, how do I remove it from the dashboard? There is a sticker on the side of the glove box with the number "M97E208145" on it. Could this be the serial number for the radio? Thanks for your help.

The dealership will charge about $100 - $125 and they require the serial number off the radio (which you can only find by removing it) and the VIN number. Just using the registration and the VIN will not get you the answer..... You can go to your local shop and they will charge you less. Also, the Acura website gives you the ability to enter your information online and they won't charge you. They will send you your code online. You have to register your car with the Acura website and I encourage you do to that - as there is a wealth of information...

Take your registration and title to a dealership and they can look it up for you based on the VIN number of the car. They may charge you up to an hour's labor for doing this though, so make sure they give you the code written down on a card you can keep, and they also show you how to enter it. Otherwise, you'll have to go back and pay again if power is interrupted in the future.

We had the same problem. As advised from another website, we unhooked the battery and hooked the cables together for about 10 minutes. This reset the radio and allowed us to put in the 5-digit code. Now we're jammin'!

you need to take the neg (-) battery cable off to reset the radio. you can only enter the radio code 3 times incorrectly than it will lock up. i think you can pull the back up fuse from the under hood fuse box for 10 seconds and that will also reset it.

Your radio isn't broken. Obviously my answer is months late, but i'll throw my 2 cents in here. I drive the same exact car, and had the same exact problem. The reason your code didn't work is probably b/c you got locked out because of putting in the wrong code too many times. If you don't put it in by the third time, you get locked out and need to remove your car battery for a few seconds than try again. The code is printed on the back of your ash tray, just a little fyi.
