Question about 2005 Acura TSX
Anyone have any troubleshooting advice for resetting the radio in my TSX. We had to replace the battery and of course now my radio and clock need resetting. I found the card with the code in my glove box, however upon entering the number, it continues to flash CODE across the radio and now I have received an error e message..any suggestions on fixes or is this a call to my dealer.
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!
