It would be much easier and cheaper if you write down your VIN and take it to a local Acura dealership . They can cut you a new key for ten to $15.00 .

    The dealer said because I do not have the red key or the black to start the engine, the key replacement will cost me $600.00
    This is why I am trying to see if I replace the ignition with another used ignition with a black head and a red logo key might work.

Open either the driver's or passenger's side front door. The ends of the dashboard the but-up to the door when their closed should have a plastic cover/door that can be pulled out. Behind that cover should be a fuse box that might have the flasher unit.

You have to replace the assembly if you can't pull the end of the key out. That is done by removing the steering column shroud and chisseling or drilling off the captive bolts which clasp the lock assembly to the column. Then refit the new assembly and tighten and snap off the new captive bolt heads.

I could be wrong but I am pretty sure there are a few (3, I think) screws on the bottom side of the steering column. You remove those screws and take the plastic off from around the steering column, top and bottom. There are two 8 mm bolts on the top of the column holding down the ignition switch. The cylinder is on the bottom side of the column and should now come off.

I bought a acura 1997 3.5 rl and i need the code for the radio.

Here is how: 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!
