    Same here, but I am the daughter. The key that unlocks it is supposed to be used when the led says CODE and since it says err-3 I don't think that will work. I trieed it too and no luck.

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.

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'!

Reset radio


remove the radio unit, and strip it down to the electronics.
there will be a few capacitors in there...using a jumper that is thinner than the solder points, short out each capacitor you see. (from positive to negative)

this resets some old TV systems and Radios memories.

hope it helps

I disconnected battery and antenna for 2003 acura tl but code wont take


on the TL - 5 digit code for the radio; 4 for navi; numbers are typically on a sticker on the side of the glovebox (nearest radio) or rear truck arm (great security acura?). Need to unplug the antenna and then put in the code, reconnect the antenna and your back in business. search the net to learn how to access the back of the radio. typically needed after power is lost to the vehicle, new battery installed, etc.

Check Engine light with an Err 3 on the radio.


err 3 is not an engine system fault code, a tyupical code looks like this P0420, this happens to be a evaporative emission system fault code.

I have a 1999 honda odyssey, the radio needs to have the reset number put in, but it says radio err.. anyway to reset it so i can put in the code??


yes if you have the code and the display reads error then you need to reset the audio unit. to reset you can disconnect the neg and pos battery cables hold them so they are touching each other for approx 30 seconds. reinstall cables and the error message on the audio unit sounds be cleared and you can now enter you code. if it still reads error then there may be internal damage to the audio unit- hope this helps

Is there a way to reset the Err-3 code? How can I get the serial # when Err-3 is on the display?


Disconnect battery for about 20 seconds. When you reconnect it, you will need to enter your code for the radio. If you try and fail three times, you get that 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!

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.
