Turn your radio off
Press the #1 Preset button and #6 Preset button at the same time and while doing this with your other hand turn your radio on and your will get a stereo code. Call the dealer and see if they will give you the unlock code for the stereo code otherwise go to stereo-code.com and pay $ 28.00 to get it quick

This anti-theft feature began in 1990, and it has driven owners crazy, and might have prevented a couple of stereos from being stolen! My understanding is that you must get a code # that is either located on a sticker in the side of the glove box, or on the back of the stereo (which of course means u must remove the stereo). This # must be brought to the dealer, where they will provide the # needed to get the radio working again. Let me know how u make out, as I have never personally had to deal w/ this.

My avn520 car stereo is locked


If its locked then to unlock it the radio system needs to be reprogrammed.

To reprogram the radio there is 4 digit code. That code has to be inserted, once these code is inserted, your car radio will get into its actual setting where you can set/select your radio setting.


Many a time's radio asks for the code after car battery is disconnected.

On some cases to retrieve the code its mentioned in manual or else car dealer is other option to get car radio code.

Hi there!

Your radio will need a code and the only way you might get it is, If you contact the place where you got the car they might have the code still. Good luck

HOW CAN I UNLOCK THE RADIO ON AN ACURA 3.2 CL TYPE S


Try this:
> Disconnect the battery cables: Negative {black} cable first, then Positive{red}.
> Touch and hold the metal ends of the cables together (hold together so they make constant contact) for at least 30 seconds.
> Reconnect cables to battery: Positive first, then Negative.
> Then try entering the code.

Sometimes the radio will lock (especially if the code has been typed in wrong several times) and this is a way to manually unlock it.

I bought my Acura 2.2cl used, and have no CODE or idea what the Code is to re-activate the stereo after the battery died!..What do I do, and also who thought of this brilliant idea??


what you need to do is bring your car to any acura dealership and what they do is pull the radio (or take it out your self and take it in to them) and find a serial number on the radio. with that number they can access the radio code for your car ..

Can get the radio to come on don't know the code and I'm getting an error message


This happened to me. You have to call Acura and fax them a copy of your driver's license & the vehicle registration. You then call them back in 24 hours and they will release the code for your radio. It's a bit of a hassle, but at least you'll know the code!

Acura car stereo lock codes my stereo needs a code is a Acura 3.0CL now it says err-3 can some one help


err-3 means you have entered incorrect anti-theft radio code more that three times.If you do not have radio code you can most of the time find the code card tucked away in the owners manual pouch.(looks like a bussiness card)If you are unable to find card you would have to pull radio from dash and retrive stereo serial number,which is on bottom side of radio.once you have s/n you can take s/n to any acura dealership(has to be a dealer)and they can get radio code for that stereo through Honda Corp.once you have correct radio code you will need to first unplug radio,or disconnect battery to reset radio memory,then type in radio code.again if entered incorrectly 3x ,radio would need to be reset again too clear error codes.good luck!

Radio error on Acura


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'!
