Customer Question
Hi, my name is...

Hi, my name is ***** *****. I have a 2007 Acura TSX that suddenly does not have power to the radio. Clock and Temp displays work fine, just no power to the radio itself. I have reset this before by pulling fuses 5,7, and 32 under the dash, and everything worked fine until I started the car this morning, and all of a sudden no power. I have disconnected the battery twice for 10-15 mins each time, pulled all radio related fuses I can find, with no success so far

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Not sure what else to add, you'll have to be more specific

I just replaced the 10A #6 fuse, and still nothing. The anti-theft light is still blinking, if that helps
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

ok that does help.

was the fuse blown ?

I have my radio code, i just don't get the unit to power up where it asks me for the code
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

ok then the radio will have to be removed so we can check for power and ground.

if these are present then the radio will need to be sent in for service.

did you want to remove the radio if so I can gather the directions.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the fuse was not blown on the #6 fuse, but i replaced it anyways, all mini fuses under the dash and the hood that i have found to correspond with the radio have been replaced as well
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
well considering i do not have a meter to check power, that won't accomplish much on my end, haha
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

ok

this is what will need to be done next since the system is a basic 2 fuse system.

power and aux and ground.

so the audio unit needs to be removed and then check power and ground at the connector with a volt meter

i read somewhere there is the possibility of trying a hard reset by removing the battery cables and touching them together for 20 mins with the key in the "on" position, is this worth trying?
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

semi correct the key needs to be off.

but you can try that.

no experience with the radio issue you have now normally it's the navi that does this.

but these are getting older so new things pop up all the time.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i guess i'll try the hard reset, seems the only other option for me since i don't have the proper tools to check power
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

ok.

wish their was a easier option but since this very basic the options are limited with out pulling the audio unit.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i'll let you know in a bit if it works
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

ok sounds like a plan

Ask Your Own Acura Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i tired the hard reset, and no success. i can only guess the unit itself has just died
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
tried*
Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 2 years ago

it's very possible.

this is why the radio needs to be removed then power and ground checked.

if that is present then yes the audio unit will have to be replaced or serviced.

at that point it would be cheaper to buy a replacement audio unit from crutch field for a 1/3 or the cost

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
