Acura interior

When you’re behind the wheel of your luxury Acura vehicle on the Clovis roads, the vehicle’s radio not only offers exceptional entertainment for your commute but also reliable navigation, traffic features, and much more. However, you may notice that all of a sudden, the word “CODE” is displayed on your vehicle radio display, so what do you do next? There’s no need to panic. It’s likely that you just need to enter the Acura radio code on your Acura vehicle to regain access to radio functions.

In some older Acura models, the Acura radio code will need to be entered into the radio if it has been reset. Fortunately, it’s a simple process to enter the Acura radio code before you can continue to enjoy an entertaining commute. Learn how to enter the Acura radio code today with the service experts from Fresno Acura! Since the Acura radio code is needed in some earlier Acura models, feel free to stop by our dealership anytime when you want to trade in your older Acura model for a brand new one with updated infotainment features.

How to Find an Acura Radio Code

Before we can go over how to enter the Acura radio code, you’ll want to know where to find the radio code in the first place. In some earlier Acura models, you’ll need to enter a radio code during a radio reset. You may also need to enter the radio code if you’ve just acquired a new OEM Acura radio to install in your vehicle. Other instances where you’ll need to reset your Acura radio are if you need a jump-start or need to replace your vehicle’s battery.

Using your Acura radio code will allow you to enjoy your Acura radio during your Madera commute. Of course, you can always upgrade to a new Acura model from our dealership for an updated infotainment system, but if you want to get your older Acura radio working again, here’s how to find the radio code:

  • The anti-theft radio identification card in your owner’s manual.
  • Your vehicle’s maintenance journal.
  • A small sticker in your glove box, on your door jamb, or on the trunk jamb. The sticker should contain two series of numbers. The top five-digit series of numbers is your radio code. The bottom series of numbers is your serial number.
  • If you only have the serial number, call Acura Customer Service. They will ask for the serial number and your identifying information, then give you a new Acura radio code.
