Customer Question

Hi Andrew, My name is ***** *****. I just bought a 2008 Acura TL and the HFL is locked. I don't have or know the passcode and would like to reset it, How can I do this?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: "System is locked" "Please enter passcode" prompts happen when I attempt.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Mechanics for Acura generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Unfortunately due to privacy concerns The only way to reset the code is to use the factory scan tool . There is no other way to reset the unit other than to replace it . I'm sure this is not the answer you are looking for but I'm just being honest with you. This is why your question has taken so long to get answered . Most Acura or Honda dealers will do this for you for a small fee.
