I bought a used 2002 Acura TL Sport VIN#19UUA56882A011822; When I power on the radio it's asking for a "Code". Where can I get this code from and how is it entered?


Hello and welcome to, first you look in your glove box area for a white sticker. if there is a sticker there it will have the serial number, the code number or both. if it has the code number great! you only need to enter this number in the radio using the radio preset buttons. if it has just the serial number you can post it here and i can get you the code


if there is no sticker, then you have to get the serial number electronically. first make sure the radio is saying "code" and not "err". if it says "err" then you will have to disconnect the battery for a few minutes to get it back to saying "code". then turn off the radio and hold down preset buttons 1 and 6. hold the buttons down while you turn on the radio. when the radio turns on release the buttons and the radio should display the serial number. copy it down and post it here.


please do not rate my service until you are completely satisfied. thanks

I saw a small white sticker on the outside of the glove box and it had a number on it "AD010970". I'm not sure if this what you were looking for. Also when I turned on the radio it gave me an "ERR" code.

sorry that's not going to be a good serial number. please get the number electronically like i posted in the previous post but first the radio has to say "code" again. You can do this by disconnecting the battery for at least 20 seconds and then trying the procedure. post the number whenever you can.
