I recently had to remove the battery on my 2005 TSX, and of course now my radio and clock are needing to be reset. I found the code for the radio reset, however after several attempts to enter it continues to flash CODE accross the counsel. Now I have an error e message..any suggestions of how to correct? or is this a call to the dealer?
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.

Look in your owners manual and a lot of the time there is a card or piece of paper with the code. If not there, I would go to your Honda/Acura dealer and tell them you had to unhook your battery and don't have the code. In the past I have gotten the code this way and they didn't charge me anything.
Hi, this sounds like the starter solenoid, but on your car the solenoid is integrated with the starter motor assembly. You will need to remove the starter and have it tested at your local parts chain.
If you have the proper equipment, you can test at home as indicated below. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
The factory sound system has a coded theft protection system. It is recommended that you know your reset code before you begin.
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
Remove or disconnect the following:
Negative then the positive battery cablesIntake manifoldStarter cable from the B terminalBlack/white wire from the S (solenoid) terminalHarness clamp and holderTwo bolts that mount the starter to the transaxle assemblyStarter
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
When installing the heavy gauge starter cable, make sure the crimped side of the terminal end is facing out.
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!
Not sure this will work. Wondering if you could cut off your batteries and plug them back in again? It might do the reset on the CD as well since I know that the clock does get reset back to 12:00 or so.. All the best.
