How to Enter a Radio Code on an Acura

By WayneC

If the radio in your Acura vehicle does not allow you to use it, the radio's anti-theft security system has most likely activated, which occurs when battery power to the radio becomes cut off. The only way to unlock the radio involves entering its security code. Using the preset buttons on the radio's front dashboard to enter the security code unlocks it, but you need to have the radio code on hand to do it. If you do not, get in touch with Acura to obtain the code.

Step 1

Find the card with the radio's security code printed on it. If you cannot find it, contact your Acura dealership and ask for it. You must provide the Acura dealership with the radio's serial number, found on the radio itself.

Step 2

Turn the car on.

Step 3

Use the preset buttons to enter the radio's security code.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you need to get in touch with Acura for the code, write it down and keep it where you can find it easily in case the radio ever locks again.
