    I have a 98 acura integra and recently changed out the battery. Called the dealer who gave me a code that didn't work. The same code was given to me on the Acura website as well. I have detached the battery a couple times to reset the radio w/o avail. Called the dealer today and he gave me another code which did not work either.

Your radio isn't broken. Obviously my answer is months late, but i'll throw my 2 cents in here. I drive the same exact car, and had the same exact problem. The reason your code didn't work is probably b/c you got locked out because of putting in the wrong code too many times. If you don't put it in by the third time, you get locked out and need to remove your car battery for a few seconds than try again. The code is printed on the back of your ash tray, just a little fyi.

I had the same exact problem just disconnect your battery for a few reconnect it put your code in you should be good. If for any reason you don't have your code call your local acura dealership ask for the parts department give them the radio serial number and they will give you the code. Hope that answers your question.

I'll go with solution #3... had this happen more than once on my '98 CL 2.3 with Bose stereo. Disconnect batter, wait 5 minutes, re-c0nnect and re-enter code. You're good to go!

you need to take the neg (-) battery cable off to reset the radio. you can only enter the radio code 3 times incorrectly than it will lock up. i think you can pull the back up fuse from the under hood fuse box for 10 seconds and that will also reset it.

We had the same problem. As advised from another website, we unhooked the battery and hooked the cables together for about 10 minutes. This reset the radio and allowed us to put in the 5-digit code. Now we're jammin'!

Lexus 2001 is 200 6 disc stereo error 1 code shows when trying to play cds


Error 1 - "disc is dirty, damaged, or is inserted upside down"

I quote other solution comments:

I've been getting the Err 1 and Err 3 for a while now, my headunit needs replacing but I haven't had chance yet...
I've found that the cold weather makes it worse as the CDs get that cold they are covered in condensation so the CD has trouble reading them..
In my experience when you get an Err 3 it's basically knacked and needs replacing and Err 1's can sometimes be read problems - what's the disk like?
Mine has started giving Err 1's on brand new CD's (not CDRs) so she's probably having trouble focussing....
If the car is less than 5 years old the headunit should be covered under warranty (ie free).


Hope helps.

How to reset my radio its saying err-error.


If it's saying error because you keep entering the wrong code.
Try disconnect both battery cable(red and black) and touch them together for a good 5-10 min. Usully that will reset audio unit. If not, then you have to wait a hour wihout touching the unit and it
will reset itself.

good luck.

I have a 1999 honda odyssey, the radio needs to have the reset number put in, but it says radio err.. anyway to reset it so i can put in the code??


yes if you have the code and the display reads error then you need to reset the audio unit. to reset you can disconnect the neg and pos battery cables hold them so they are touching each other for approx 30 seconds. reinstall cables and the error message on the audio unit sounds be cleared and you can now enter you code. if it still reads error then there may be internal damage to the audio unit- hope this helps

Is there a way to reset the Err-3 code? How can I get the serial # when Err-3 is on the display?


Disconnect battery for about 20 seconds. When you reconnect it, you will need to enter your code for the radio. If you try and fail three times, you get that code.

Acura car stereo lock codes my stereo needs a code is a Acura 3.0CL now it says err-3 can some one help


err-3 means you have entered incorrect anti-theft radio code more that three times.If you do not have radio code you can most of the time find the code card tucked away in the owners manual pouch.(looks like a bussiness card)If you are unable to find card you would have to pull radio from dash and retrive stereo serial number,which is on bottom side of radio.once you have s/n you can take s/n to any acura dealership(has to be a dealer)and they can get radio code for that stereo through Honda Corp.once you have correct radio code you will need to first unplug radio,or disconnect battery to reset radio memory,then type in radio code.again if entered incorrectly 3x ,radio would need to be reset again too clear error codes.good luck!
