2006 Acura rsx radio code

Customer Question

2006 Acura rsx radio code
Submitted: 6 months ago.
Category: Acura
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Also showing ErrE on radio and not letting me enter anything
Expert:  Jared D replied 6 months ago.

I can get a radio code for you, but first you should try to reset the radio by disconnecting the battery. If it still comes up with the ErrE message then there is likely a problem with the radio that an unlock code won't solve.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
We unhooked the battery, now the radio says "code" it should be a 5 digit code, we checked all the stickers in the car and it is not on any ofb them
Expert:  Jared D replied 6 months ago.

That's a good sign-it means the radio isn't bad.

We now need the serial number from the radio:

  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON.
  2. Turn ON the device and confirm that the display reads COdE. If you don’t see this message, pull the backup fuse for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
  3. Turn OFF the device.
  4. Press and hold the 1 and 6 radio preset buttons, and turn ON the device.
  5. The display toggles between two screens: U with the first 4 digits of the serial number (U2200 for example,)
  6. And L with the last 4 digits of the serial number (L0055 for example.)
  7. Ignore the U and L and record all 8 digits.

Once you have the serial # ***** the vehicle's VIN I can get you an unlock code.

Vin# *****

The radio code database appears to be down over at honda. I'll try again this evening and let you know if I can get it to give me a code.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Were you able to try again to get the code?
Expert:  Jared D replied 5 months ago.

I've tried every day except yesterday and it keeps coming up blank. Let me see if they got it going this morning.

Expert:  Jared D replied 5 months ago.

It still isn't working. I hate to say it, but you might have to call the dealer directly. Usually all they will want your contact information and the vin and serial number. Some dealers will do it for free, others aren't as nice.

I'm sorry I can't get it to generate a code for me. It is saying that "the Vin is locked and can only be unlocked through Honda customer service (1-***-***-****)".
