Default Radio code

First off let me introduce myself. My name is Aaron and I just recently purchased a 99 TL. The radio is showing code and ive been seaching the internet to figure out how to reset it. From what I can tell I will neex the radio serial number Nd the VIN. I got both of those now and I just looking to see if there is someone on here that can now help me get the code so I can unlock the radio.

Sincerely Aaron

Call a local dealer. If you can prove you own the car, they will look it up for you. Go there and bring registration, Insurance and ID. I did this with a Honda, I would assume a local Acura dealer would do the same for you

You can do it online here:

I have done this and it works - as long has you have registered the car with Acura. If you haven't, then you have to go the dealer route as suggested by Leeper.

Its on the passenger side of the radio itself. Just take the panel of he passenger side of the consol an you should see it. Best thing to do really though is rip out the Bose system an throw it off the closet bridge. No highs no lows must be Bose........
