We have an Acura TL 2006. We had a new battery put in today

Customer Question

Hi, we have an Acura TL 2006. We had a new battery put in today and our am/fm/ satellite radio will not turn on. The navigation system seems to . We were given a code for the radio, have tried to enter it many times with no luck. The word code was showing but now it only shows ERR,(error)... So we obviously are not doing things properly... Thank you in advance for any help you can send our way☺️!***@******.***

I have checked the "radio" fuse... It appears to be okay. I'm not good with doing "on line" things so please let me know if I've done what is needed for an answer. The price if $36.00 sounds reasonable if this will really help☺️. Thank you, jeannette

Hello welcome to just answer I am master tech and will be able to assist you today .

before you entered the code did the radio just say code ?

and once you entered the code it beeped a few times and then code came back up ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
then eventually only the "ERR" would come up , and code no longer came up.
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

do you have the serial #. please press and hold the 1&6 buttons together and then while holding turn the radio on it will display a code I need this code to get the radio code

I held the 1&6 buttons together and tuned on the radio on, nothing happened, in fact no letters or numbers appeared until I released the numbers, turned the power button off and on again, then the ERR appeared again😚..
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok then disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and it will reset. then make sure the radio is off and then key is on. then repeat

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What exactly should be repeated?, the 1 and 6 hold buttons thing or redisconnect the battery steps again?
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

the steps to recover the code. the battery disconnect allows the system to be cleared so you can use the 1&6 buttons to recover the code.

the Honda site is closed already so getting the code this evening will have to wait until tomorrow morning

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I thank you and guess we can finish this tomorrow.
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok in the mean time if you can proceed with the battery disconnect and then use the 1&6 buttonw to get the serial # ***** in the morning I can access the radio code for you so your radio is operating again
