Many cars set this lamp as a result of reaching a certain number of miles that clock in on the odometer. It usually means you've reached a particular service interval - often a "major" one.. Other times, it can be the result of detecting a malfunctioning sub-system or sensor that needs attention. Your mechanic (possible autoparts store) can usually scan the computer to determine exactly what the cause is.

You cann't remove only radio you have to remove whole panel which contains radio.

There are two possible scenarios for you car radio panel

1. Your car can have Navigator, Climate Controller and Radio.

2. Your car can have Climate Controller and Radio.

You have to open whole panel.

This Panel contains some of SRS components, so have to be very careful while removing it!

1996 acura rl i need code for unlock my radio

Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code. You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership. Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.
