How to Enter an Acura Radio Code

Have you ever been driving along the roads of Costa Mesa or Tustin and realized your Acura’s radio isn’t working? You may notice that it now shows the word “CODE.” It’s a somewhat common scenario, and it does not mean that there is anything wrong with your vehicle — it’s part of a security system Acura has in place to keep you protected. That is why it is important to know how to enter an Acura radio code.

How to Find and Use Your Acura Radio Code: Step by Step

How to Get the Acura Radio Code

Step inside the cabin of your Acura vehicle and turn the vehicle on. The radio should still say “CODE” — that simply means the security system kicked on because it lost power from your battery.

There are a couple of ways to access your Acura radio unlock codes and activate the radio:

  • Consult the owner’s manual and locate the Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card. In the lower right corner, the toy should see two groups of numbers. The top group (which should be shorter and in bold) is your code. Your serial number is the bottom set of numbers.
  • If you are unable to find the Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card, try checking the vehicle’s maintenance journal. The technician who first checked the vehicle may have written your radio code in the given slot.
  • If you don’t have the maintenance journal or you do but it doesn’t give the code, look in the glove box to see if you can find a small sticker with two numbers. Similar to the numbers in the owner’s manual, the top number is your radio code. If it is not in the glove box, the numbers could be found trunk jamb or door jamb.
  • If you have the serial number but not the code, you can call Acura. All you have to do is confirm your personal information for identification purposes.

How to Enter the Acura Radio Code

Now that you have found the radio code, simply enter it on your audio system’s preset radio station buttons. This should unlock the radio so you can get back to listening to your favorite tunes on the Montclair roads. The Acura radio code retrieval process itself was actually the hard part. The rest is easy! Simply follow these steps:

  • Press the power button on your radio until the display reads, “CODE”.
  • Type in the five digits of the radio code. As you type in the code, the word “CODE” will eventually spell itself out, one letter at a time.

And that’s how to enter an Acura radio code!
