How to Enter an Acura Radio Code

2019 Acura RDX Cockpit View

While behind the wheel in Wallingford, you may have realized that your Acura’s radio isn’t working. When this happens, you will see the word “CODE.” However, this is not anything to worry about and it is actually a common occurrence — it’s part of a security system Acura has in place to keep you protected. Because this issue is not uncommon, it is beneficial to know how to enter an Acura radio code.

How to Find and Use Your Acura Radio Code

Step inside the cabin of your vehicle and start the engine. The radio should still say “CODE” — when it says this, all that it means is that the security system was engaged due to a loss in power from your battery.

It is easy to locate your Acura radio unlock codes so that you can re-activate the radio:

  • Find your owner’s manual and look for the Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card. In the lower right corner, you will see two groups of numbers. The top group (which should be shorter and in bold) is your code. The serial number is the one at the bottom.
  • If you are not able to find the card, you may still find this information in the vehicle’s maintenance journal. It’s possible that the technician who first checked your vehicle recorded your radio code here.
  • 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 owner’s manual, the top number is your radio code. If you do not find this sticker in the glove box, check the trunk jamb or door jamb.
  • If you have the serial number but not the code, contact Acura. Once you confirm your personal information for identification purposes, you can receive your code.

After you’ve found the radio code, all you have to do is enter it on your audio system’s preset radio station buttons to have everything unlocked and back to working as intended.

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