Acura radio problem

After replacing a dead battery, my radio code on mk y 2002 Acura RL would not go in. I have the code, tried several suggested methods to re-enter the code, but it still does not work. Bought a usedAcura radio with the code, had it installed, and that one does not work either. The radio does say"CODE". Could the mechanic who replaced the battery have done something to the wiring?
Help!
Thanks

I also replaced the battery, went through acura and then bose. Bose contacted me a day later with a code. I entered it while on the phone with bose. It didn't work. I have a 1999 acura rl and no sounds. I bought a new deck and figured I get a professional to install. One of the shops told me the new deck might not work with the stock bose system. He said others have reported this problem in the past. Help!! Not sure what to do. I don't want to put the deck in for nothing. What are my options?

You could try an unlock site. www.dvdexploder.com run a radio code unlock service you might want to try. They have a good reputation and may come up a with a solution.

Wiring? Don't pay the mechanic any more! All that's happened is by removing the power source your Acura radio thinks it's been removed from the car. This system is meant to act as a deterrant to stop car thieves - but more often acts as a pain by owners!

Some redio brands have solution like reprograme your chip but its quit costly so its batter to pay 90 % of new radio than buy new model & use.

I have an acura 02 rl the radio is giving me a


You have to do this: 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!

Call the dealership for the number and tell them you are the original car owner and make sure you have the right serial number off the radio itself try this if you don't: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen.

Radio code for 2002 Acura RL


you need the serial number from the radio unit and the navi system (not the screen). If you are the origal owner, that was given to you with the books. the radio code is a 5 digit number and the navi code is a 4 digit number.they may have put a sticker with a 5 digit number on the inside walls of the glove box. if there is a sticker with more that 5 numbers, call you dealer with that number, that may be your serial number. the navi system has 4 digit code
