The problem could be an in-line fuse, close to the battery post. If for some reason the cables were put on backwards(temporarily) or the in-line fuse was pulled on or weak, it could have broke. Let me know if that helps.

the best and safest way to remove this radio is with the special tools that Acura made specifically for removing the radio. Any radio store or best buy can easily remove it for you. I hope this helps please rate this and thank you.
Had similar problem, went to dealer told battery posts were dirty and loose. Battery was checked and said to be fine. Posts were cleaned and tightened. Next day on way home from work car died. Got a boost from a freind and made it home took out battery went to Autozone and found out battery no good!!!!!!!!!!!! Change your battery that may be the problem.
For the radio try this and it could fix it all: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen. You have to get the serial number off the radio by removing it or partially taking it out to see the numbers on it try not to remove any cords. With the stereo out (to make sure you get the right number off of it) call an Acura dealership with the number and they will give you the another number to enter into the stereo and directions on how to punch the numbers in. Make sure while you have the stereo out you write the serial number down and keep it in a safe place also the number that the Acura dealership gives you because if you sell the car or if it happens again its easily accessible. Good Luck!
