Acura radio PCB board serial number and code retrieval

Step 1 - Retrieve radio serial#

Acura will have two ways of retrieving the radio serial#.

* Type 1 or Type 2

* DEPENDING ON THE YEAR

Type 1

Acura ( For all 2001 and up vehicles )

* Turn the vehicle's key to the "on" position.

* Press the preset buttons 1 and 6 at the same time.

* Turn on the radio.

* A 10 digit serial number will appear on the radio display, (if stereo was locked up at the time).

* There will be 10 characters in the radio serial #.

* A U followed by 4 numbers and an L. followed by 4 numbers.

* Example, your display will indicate, U5123 L1235. ( SN #:51231235 )

* Or will indicate all 8 numbers at one time. Example: 51231235.

* Please document this number, as you will need this number for the form below.

Step 2 – Get the code using the link below

https://radio-navicode.acura.com/

* You will also receive your radio unlock code, via email.

*

Note : If the code cannot be retrieved because it is locked, call the Acura Customer Relations at 1-800-382-2238 option 6 to unlock and retrieve the code.

So is this going to fix my Nav that's completely black? (radio works fine, and buttons do light but they don't do anything)...

I'm wondering because in the Acura service bulletin it says,
"On vehicles with navigation systems, this condition does not affect the display, but the navigation panel buttons do not illuminate."

^ if that's the case, then it wouldn't fix my issue of having a black nav screen...or am I reading it wrong?

Thank you.

Thank you so much. Over four years later and this helped me out. I just replaced the alternator on my 04, and was having trouble finding the code. You are a lifesaver
