How can I enter radio code?

Use the radio station preset buttons to enter the code after you turn on the power to the radio. The radio's display may say "CODE" asking for the security code.

I pushed in my cigarette lighter on my 2000 Acura RL and both my lighter and radio stopped playing. What happened?

Sounds like you blew a fuse. The fuse for the radio and ACC which I believe would be the lighters as well is located in the interior fuse panel (see picture of location below) and will be the fuse in the number 4 position (see 2nd picture below of diagram of layout). Now I hope you have the security code for the radio that should have come with the vehicle because you will need to enter it in order to get the radio to work again as it will be locked until you do. On Honda/Acura if you begin to enter the code and you start to enter it wrong continue with a code anyhow because you can't go back. You have 3 trys. If you mess up 3 trys in a row, the radio will be locked for 1 hour and then you can try it again. I hope this helps and good luck.

93 acura legend radio battery went dead in car and now flashing security light how do i get radio to work again anim assuming it needs a code an how can i get code for free

I just bought my 3rd Acura Legend...but never encountered this problem. They removed my battery to place in another vehicle on the lot...and when they replaced my battery, the radio locked up and would not do anything. I called the Acura dealership in my area....have an appt for Monday, she said $51.00 to get code. I was reading on all the websites i could find about Acura radio codes...then i come accross one posting about an Acura Integra. It said her code was under her ashtray. I went out to my car...pulled my ashtray out. There was a white sticker with a 5 digit number first, and then an E number. I turned my radio on, entered 5 digit BEEPED. I turned it off, and turned it back the most WONDERFUL BOSE stereo system!! It worked ya'll!! I was so shocked!! It may not help everybody....but my Acura Legend 4Dr Sedan has MUSIC now!! So i thought i would pass it along...saved me FIFTY dollars!!

Left key on, battery stereo won't work...says something about a code?

Modern stereos have an inbuilt security code which is there to prevent theft and damage to your car.. If you remove the continuous supply from the radio ( by any means which includes a discharged battery) then the radio will not function until the correct security code has been entered. BE WARNED, some radios will only give you a limited number of attempts at entering this code. If you use up those attempts then the radio will be permanently disabled and may have to be returned to its manufacturer to have the code cleared, this can be very expensive. Check your vehicle documentation to see if the code is given, it may be on a small card ( like a paper credit card) and the manual for the radio will tell you how to enter the code. Follow the manual to enter the code and if you do everything correctly, the radio will spring to life. If you do not have the code, take the vehicle and all your ownership documents and your own ID to the dealership as they will need proof of ownership and your ID to give you the code. Some dealerships will only post the code to you so be prepared for a wait. There is no method of circumventing this security so get the correct code and follow the manual for entering it..

Changed battery in car and code came on the display on radio. Don't know the code or how to retrieve the code or how to enter code.

You need to call the dealer with your vin number which is located under the drivers windshield youy should be able to see this number .The radio locked out for security reasons the dealer can give you the code and tell you how to input it :)

2005 Acura TL Radio/Nav code

Your navigation code and radio codes writed on stikers on glovebox. Just open your glovebox and look on left side of gloivebox, not inside but outside. Open glovebox and look on left side. On my 2005 Acura RL NAV and Radio codes is different but it both on glove box. Sometime you even need to remove your glovebox cover to see those codes.
