How to Enter an Acura Radio Code

2021 Acura TLX Interior

Are you driving around Johnston in your new Acura, or on your way to Des Moines, and your Acura’s radio isn’t working? If your Acura radio displays the word “CODE,” it’s a pretty common issue, and no need to worry. It’s just part of your Acura security system and is designed to keep you protected. Learn how to enter an Acura radio code here from your friends at Acura of Johnston.


Acura Radio Code Retrieval

So, how do you get an Acura radio code around Waterloo? Start by stepping into your Acura and turning it on. The radio should still say “Code.” That means the security system kicked on, probably because it lost power from your battery.

There are few different ways to go about Acura radio code retrieval and unlock the radio. Try any of these methods:

  • Check your owner’s manual to find the Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card. There should be two groups of numbers in the lower right corner. The top group (which should be shorter and in bold) is your unlock code. The bottom one is your serial number.
  • If you don’t see the card, look for your vehicle’s maintenance journal. The certified Acura technician who first checked the car might have written your radio code in the given slot.
  • If you don’t have the maintenance journal or the Acura radio code isn’t there, look in your glove box for a small sticker with two numbers. The top number is your radio code. It could also be in the door jam.
  • If you have the vehicle’s serial number but not the code, you can call Acura. You will need to confirm your personal information for identification purposes.

Want to know how to enter an Acura radio code? It’s pretty straightforward. Once you have the radio code, simply enter it on your audio system’s preset radio station buttons to unlock the system. That’s how to enter an Acura radio code!
