When it cuts out does the radio's display still work? Can you change channels but just not HEAR anything? Did you buy it from a private party or a dealer? Acura dealers may cover this under a warranty. Otherwise, time to join an Acura forum and look for answers there.
Call a Acura dealership to get the code- see if you can find out where the Acura was purchased. If you don't know then keep calling other Acura Dealerships until you get the answer. Someone will tell you. Goodluck!
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.
Disconnect the negative battery terminal to prevent
an accidental short circuit.
Using a small screwdriver, unclip the perimeter
of the radio trim bezel. Disconnect the climate
control and rear defroster wiring and remove
the bezel. Remove (4) Phillips screws securing
the factory head unit/trim bezel assembly.
Loosen (2) Phillips screws securing the back of
the head unit to the metal housing and slide the
unit out. (It is NOT necessary to remove the
screws securing the metal housing to the
bezel). Disconnect the wiring. (Fig. A)
Turn on car key, turn on radio. Enter your 6 digit code, using the numbered preset channel buttons on the radio. My code for my 2003 is 16353. The radio should come on and start playing. May have to enter more than once.
