I had to recently put in a new battery in my 2005 tsx. And the stereo is no longer working. I figured out how to get the serial number without taking out my stereo. Was hoping there's someone on here that could help out with the actual code???

If you open your glove compartment. From your drivers seat. Itll be right infront of you. Its a sticker on the outside left wall of the glove. Its a 4-6 digit code I believe. I forgot. But thats pretty much it. Just enter it into your radio

No. Do not do this. I called a dealer and they quoted me around $160 for code retrieval since it required the removal of the radio according to them. There are much less intrusive ways not involving any tools of course.

Instead, use this website: https://radio-navicode.acura.com/

I was able to pull my radio and nav codes using this. After that, I saved the codes in an Evernote...note, so it can be accessed from my computer or phone.

Dealers can get you the nav/radio code for free if you provide them your registration and/or title. They have it in their system.

EDIT: my friend called his local dealership over the phone and they provided it to him, didnt need to show proof of ownership.

Only time they need to pull the headunit is if the code they give does not work, which means the headunit is not the one that was sold with the car.
