I can get you the radio code. I will need your vehicle's Vin number and radio's serial number. If you do not have the radio code let me know i can get you the procedure to retrieve it without radio removal.

Ok. Can you also confirm your vin number? It is missing a character, should be 17 characters.

Is this the original navigation tha came with the vehicle? Have you already tried code 1383?

I am unable to get to 8 because my navigation says please check your disc. I’m only able to access numbers 1-6
Mechanic for Acura: Gunvir Singh,
 replied 7 months ago

Let me check. Please stand by.

Sorry about the wait. The input option for nav code is at the nav screen. Since it says check disc, need to start by removing the disc and check for scratches. If good, remove disc for 1 minute and put it back for reset.

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

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

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.

EdUSA

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.

SummerUSA

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