Hi Sir or Madam, welcome. I'm Steve. And I will be assisting you today. What does the display say? If you press and hold the hang up button on the steering wheel for 30 seconds does the system say anything back?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

It says the hand free system is okay

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Yoo..

Expert:  acramstr replied 10 months ago.

Sorry about the delay I'm having internet problems. Your code is 45145 enter it and let me know if you have any problems.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Hell yeah!! Got the radio!!.. lol now I just can't figure out the hands free link

Expert:  acramstr replied 10 months ago.
Great, So what happens when you try the hfl?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

I push the hands free button and it needs a 4 digit code.. so I held down the hang up for 15 seconds and it says the hands free system is okay

Expert:  acramstr replied 10 months ago.
ok so you recently bought the car and the system has a code?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Yeah I bought it like a month ago..

Expert:  acramstr replied 10 months ago.
Ok, unfortunately you will need An Acura dealer to remove the lock out for you using the factory scan tool. The only way to reset the code someone sets is to use the factory tool. Or replace the HFL Unit ( blame privacy laws) Most dealers will do this for about $50 some will do it free so call around . I hate having to tell people this please remember I didn't design the system.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Yeah that's cool.. I just needed to know what ro do... thanks for the help.. you've been great.

Expert:  acramstr replied 10 months ago.
Your welcome sorry for the delay I think I have it working now. If there is anything else you need just let me know .
