SOURCE: 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.

I'm assuming you have the Magellan Roadmate 800? Your shorthand doesn't give me a lot to go on. Here's the manual for the Magellan. If you have something different my apologies, give me a bit more info and I'll get what you need...]

Find a small hole otn the fron of the radio, insert a paper clip and the radio will reset the system, if the cd doen not comes out, you have to tear down the radio to get it.

Sounds like an amplifier issue. Check the fuses that run the factory amplifier, if not a fuse, then most likely a bad amp.

Ok, This simply requires that the "Park"Wire is either Earthed out, or Taken to +12 V. To be safe you should put a 1000 ohm resistor (This will limit any current to about 12mA, drawn, if wrong) in the line to stop any bad things happening, Tap on to the relevant, Eth, or Plus and see which one works.

Acura tl navigation code

You'll have to remove the display and get the serial number off of it, call the dealer and get the code. Easier to register on and do it that way.

My Acura TL nav keeps loosing powering while the car is running It makes me enter my pin number to start working again

Check your fuses. Some Honda products have a fuse marked back up or two radio fuses. Some cars have the memory on same circuit as an accessory plug so check all fuses first.

Radio and navi won't turn on. Tried looking for blown fuse but unable to locate one. Help.

It helps to state what radio you have.....So did you find the fuse and its good?and getting power or just tried to find it? Try fuse 11 and 13 for the Nav. Fuse 8 and 9 inside and fuse 4 under hood for BOSE SYSTEM. Fuse 8, 9 under dash and 48 under hood for non BOSE

Replaced the battery in my 2007 Acura. I entered the 4 digit code....the nav system works but the radio doesn't turn on.

I solved the problem. Turns out there were two codes, two "enter" code messages and two keys to enter the codes. The keys for the nav code were obvious. The keys for the radio are the preset buttons.

Navigation asks for a code

Contact you can look under your nav system in the trunk. You will need to remove the screws that hold the Nav System in place. The serial number is right in the middle on the bottom of the unit. Once you have it, call Acura and tell them you need the code. You will also have to prove that you own the vehicle. Good Luck.

Rearview backup camera not working, flashing screen. Not tailgate camera wire problem. Please Click "Want Answer" to get this question answered. Just to start out, I have replaced the entire camera wiring harness so a broken wire there should not be the culprit.I've had the MDX for a 4 years and the camera and Navigation have not worked for years. I recently replaced the Navigation unit hoping it would also fix the camera issue. Now the Nav is working as it should but the camera is still not working, still flashing between black and white with no picture visible. I have been able to bring up the brightness menu through the nav screen to adjust up or down screen brightness but it has no impact when I increase or decrease the brightness. I've read a lot on about every possible forumn. When my MDX is in reverse, my backup camera does not work. I did research and find the most common reason for failure related to severed wires (red wire usually) in the passenger side boot between the tailgate was broken. Mine was broken too and I started with soldering the wires together but that didn't work. I then purchased ($28) a new OEM Rearview Camera wiring harnes from Acura. I replaced the entire wire harness to solve the issue but the camera still does not work. All fuses are checked and good, reverse lights work, light bulb in hatch door is working. No damage in wires between the Camera and new wire harness. That leaves me with a possible bad Rearview control unit (havent been able to find this yet) or a bad camera assembly. Maybe some other internal wiring issues between display and control unit. I've tried to take the passenger side interior panels off but saw it was going to be a pretty big job so I thought I should ask before I gave up. Please help. I have a cheaper volt meter, has red and black lead, but haven't learned how to use or read it yet. I wish I knew. The main difference I have noticed between others that have been able to fix their problem by reconnecting the wires is that their screens are blank, which indicates they just aren't getting power to the camera. My screen flashes between white and black about every second.
