Most likely, be sure you have the "radio code".... there is a way to do it, but involves have a few "jumper wires" so that the car never loses battery power. or you could even use a set of jumper cables.

You normally need any security codes you or the manufacturer have programmed the radio with .

The clock and dashboard configuration will need to be reset

You can make up a set of leads with an open jawed croc clip (so that it fits around the battery posts ) and clip these to the car battery cables while you are doing the transfer

I would suggest that you also wrap the positive lead in a cloth in case you earth it down while you are lifting one battery out and the other in

You might try disconnecting the battery and then pushing the on button on the radio. Hopefully you have a copy of the radio code nuber in case that is necessary. Then reconnect the car battery and set up your bluetooth link again.

I disconnected battery and antenna for 2003 acura tl but code wont take


on the TL - 5 digit code for the radio; 4 for navi; numbers are typically on a sticker on the side of the glovebox (nearest radio) or rear truck arm (great security acura?). Need to unplug the antenna and then put in the code, reconnect the antenna and your back in business. search the net to learn how to access the back of the radio. typically needed after power is lost to the vehicle, new battery installed, etc.

After changing the battery on my 2005 Pontiac G6 the radio will not display anything. Not even the


did you hook the cables up backwards (ground to positive) as this could short out your electronics. are there any other electronic issues. if you didnt and everything else is ok you radio may have an anti-theft program. you can try disconnecting the ground connection to the battery for about 30 secs and reconnecting it. if it still doesnt work look in your owners manual how to reset the computer also check your fuses.. if all fails you may need to get the radio reprogrammed good luck

We just replaced the battery in our 2005 Acura TL and now the radio will not work. All that comes up on the screen is CODE.


In these vehicles, there is an anti-theft system embedded. In order to retrieve the code, call your local dealer.

Replacing car battery 2005 acura tl radio does not work "CODE" appears on radio


This is the security code for theft radio system; add it; the radio code generaly is in back side of the radio, or in the owners manual (last page). If you dont have anyone, need to call the Acura dealer with the VIN car number (sometimes need to pay for this service).

Hope helped (remember coment and rated this post).

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.
