How to Enter an Acura Radio Code

radio code acura

Has your Acura radio ever displayed the word “CODE” during your Escondido commute? Not to worry. This notification is simply a safety precaution Acura has in place for enhanced security. Learn how to enter an Acura radio code with these DIY car care tips from Acura of Escondido! 

Acura Radio Code Retrieval

When your Acura radio displays “CODE” that means your security system activated during a loss of battery power. Luckily, the Acura radio code retrieval process is easy, helping you get back to accessing your entertainment in San Diego. 

There are several ways how to get your Acura radio code and reactivate the radio:

  • Find the Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card in your owner’s manual. Inside you’ll find two groups of numbers: the top group (in bold) is your code, while the bottom group is your serial number.
  • If you don’t have the card, look for your vehicle’s maintenance journal. Your local Temecula Acura technician may have written your radio code in the given slot during your first maintenance appointment. 
  • If your maintenance journal doesn’t provide answers, look in the glove box to see if you can find a small sticker with two numbers. As with the owner’s manual, the top number is your radio code. Other places to look include in the trunk jamb or door jamb.
  • If you have the serial number but not the code, you can call Acura. After confirming your personal information for identification purposes, an Acura representative can give you your code. 

Enter Your Acura Radio Code

Once you’ve acquired your Acura radio code, turn on your Acura model and simply enter the numbers on your audio system’s preset radio station. This will unlock and reactivate your system, allowing you to once again enjoy your favorite music and entertainment during your Carlsbad errands.
