Question about Cars & Trucks
You have an antitheft radio. You should have to put in a code. If you bought the car used you will have to go to dealer or call dealer for a master code. Most dealers wont give you this info so you may have to take in. Good luck.

SOURCE: radio pin code
Try this:"disconnect the battey cables and touch them together for ten seconds.
reconnect them. turn key to accessory or on. make sure radio is off.
press and hold radio presets one and six. continue holding and turn on
radio. it will display the serial number in two parts. for example
"u1234" and "l4321". drop the u and l and you have the serial number.
call the dealer with the number and they can look up the five digit
code. you may have to prove ownership of the car though."

I had the same problem when I had my battery replaced.
I guess the mechanic tried to enter the code.... and after 10 tries he failed of course, and the system locked itself and gave the ERROR message.
All you need to do is leave the system on for an hour (Yes, leave it on... meaning you most likely need to drive around for an hour... and sit in the car for an hour doing nothing....) Then the ERROR message will change back to CODE (you will hear a long beep)
Now you can enter your code. Remember do it slowly. Enter the key 1 by 1... Do not input quickly, otherwise it will not work
Hope this helps!

you need the code to reset it. if you don't have it, you'll need to take it to the dealer to do it. $$$ but with out it this will happen every time you disconnect the battery. unless you put an after market stereo in. which may be cheaper than taking it to the dealer. sorry./

SOURCE: TSX reset radio code didn't work
Same problem with a 2002 3.2 TL; was jus advised that when OnStar switched from analog to digital it causes memory dump; dealer says it requires "hard reset" which costs ?$?; Acura 800 number says disconnecting antenna may/may remedy.
