Question about 2002 Acura 3.5RL
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?
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?

Get the serial number off the radio ,that is located on the radio itself that it to the acura dealer and they will run the serial number it the computer and give you the correct radio code ,the code you have is wrong, acura rob

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.
