    i have the same problem,i called the dealership and they told me to try taking out the fuse for 5 seconds and then put it back in...only problem is the fuse they told me to take out was tied to the air conditioner, so now i need to find the right fuse, i think it may be 42?

Turned radio off then battery died, got vehicle fixed but no power to factory radio, all fuses check as good. Is there a trick to getting the radio to turn on again?


when the battery dies or is removed , the anti-theft code of the radio kicks in and the unit will not work again until a special code for that radio is reinstalled
the code could be in the user manual in the radio use section ,or there are sites on the net that may have the code for you

Radio stopped after the battery died and was recharged


The first thing to check is the fuse for the radio. More likely, though, is that the radio needs a security code to turn back on. A local dealership may be willing to give you this code if you go there with your title. There also websites that offer radio unlock codes. Does the radio display anything when you start the car or when you try to turn the radio on?

My battery died I replace the battery and now radio do not except a code.


If the radio will not except the codes because radio codes was attempted to many times, you can reset the radio by disconnecting the battery for 30 seconds and the radio will reset it self for you to re-enter the radio code. Good luck and keep me posted.

Is there anything i should be wary of when removing my battery,will it mess any of the electrical settings up?bmw z4 3ltre thanks


Just make sure your radio is turned off before removing the battery. If the radio is on and the battery is removed and replaced, the radio may get locked out. This will prompt you to enter and reset code to your radio to have it work again. Good luck and after you battery has been replaced, just reset the radio stations setting and time.

How do i enter the radio code on my acura rsx


When you turn on the radio and it says code,you need to press the station presets.according to you code. If you try to enter the code too many times and it says error, then you need to disconnect the battery and let it sit for about 10 minutes for the radio to clear and then reconnect the battery, When the radio says code try again. If that still fails you may have to visit your dealer to have him look into the problem.
