Take it to any chevrelot dealer ship and they can maintain the code for you and get it running. usually u have to push preset buttons 2 and 3 at the same time and hold it for 6 sec three numbers will pop up then hit the am/fm button and the other numbers will pop up take all of them numbers to a chevy dealer and they can contact gm and get the code for your vehicle. if that don't work just take it to the dealer and nthey will do it.

Hi
If the person before it had another stereo in the car or tok off the positive terminal without backup power to the ground and positive, and then they either put back the original radio or forgot about the anti theft system in radios now it can give you error, GM says to enter the unlock code "LOCKED" EVEN IF YOU know the number the radio has to be restored by the dealer, they have the code for your car to unlock the radio, the car dealer would need to take a look at the radio and will not tell you the master key code, as if they do that you can pass on the info and others can use it for illegal purposes.

I have an 97 acura cl 2.2 and my radio is showing an error and is asking for a code, what do I need to do?


Take the radio out and you will find a serial number on it and call the dealer and they will give you a code to activate it, your manual will tell ya how to relearn the radio with the new code.
This happens every time the battery goes dead.

Radio code


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.

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 ..

Who has an acura cl 3.2 radio code?


Hi:
The radio code is vehicle specific, and is there to deter theft. If you have the VIN number of the vehicle the radio came out of, the dealer service department can usually give you the code.

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!

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'!

Radio error on Acura


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.
