Ever since I replaced the battery in my '96 Acura tl, the radio/cd playerwon/t play. It displays C0DE:E. Is there a general code?
You have to go to an Acura dealer and they will be able to give you the code when you give them the serial number.
Also keep in mind that Acura is known to put the radio code on a sticker, place in an odd location of your car, such as the trunk, glovebox, etc.
Furthermore, you don't have to remove the head unit in order to find out its serial number. Just follow the instructions below:
RETRIEVING THE AUDIO UNIT SERIAL NUMBER
To reduce warranty and customer costs whenever an anti-theft code is lost, the audio unit’s serial number can be retrieved without having to remove the unit. To recall the serial number, follow these steps:
1. Turn the ignition switch to the accessory (I) position.
2. Turn on the audio unit. Make sure “CODE” appears on the display.
3. Turn off the audio unit.
4. Press and hold the number 1 and number 6 preset buttons at the same time, and then turn on the unit. The serial number will appear in two parts – the first
four digits followed by the last four digits, and then the sequence will repeat.
5. Enter these eight digits into DCS to retrieve the antitheft code.
