Radio code after new battery

So I purchased a new battery today and course I'm not able to put in my radio code. I looked in my glove box and I do have a white sticker with 8 numbers these numbers have 8 and 9's in it so I dont think it's my radio code due to not having 8 and 9's to punch on the radio.

Can anyone assist me in knowing what to do exactly, I can't live w/o my radio

Go to the dealer and get the radio code and navi code.

Your options:

1> check your owners manual....some dealers are nice and put a sticker with the codes there (i have a sticker there)
2> glove box (you already did)....I have a sticker there too
3> under spare tire....my dealer also put a sticker under the spare tire, right on the trunk....
4> go to the dealership
5> call Acura....

either way am sure you will have your radio/navi working by tomorrow....I have mine memorized (6 digits )

Also, Check your Maintenance Journal. It might be on one of the first few pages along with the VIN and everything.

Check your owner's manual, it should be written in there somewhere.

Once you get your code register your TL at myacura.com in the USA or https://myacura.acura.ca/ in Canada. Save your Navi and Radio codes there.

Cant Find the XM Radio ID?
Just View It Electronically
Currently Applies To: 0509 MDX, 0709 RDX,
0509 RL, 0409 TL, and 0609 TSX
Need that 8-character XM radio ID number off the
XM receiver but youre not sure exactly where its at?
Finding it on the component can be a bit tricky, since
its location can vary from manufacturer to
manufacturer.
Fortunately, though, theres an easy way to get that
ID: Just tune to channel 0, and you can view it
electronically on the audio display. When you do this,
make sure youre in channel mode and not in
category mode; otherwise, you wont see it.
If youre in channel mode but you still cant see the
ID, then call XM Satellite Radio at 800-967-2346
and one of their friendly agents will help you find it on
the component. Their agents are available to take
your calls Monday thru Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to
11:00 p.m. ET and on Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to
8:00 p.m. ET. When you call, make sure youve got
the component in hand or ready access to it.

They may have it but anyone with access to Honda IN can get the code. Service Writers, Techs, etc.

I can get it for you OP if all else fails.

Has the radio ever been replaced?

Turn the radio off. While holding 1 and 6, Turn it back on. Is the serial number the same as the one on the glovebox?

If it's different send me the serial number and your VIN. I'll get it to you asap.
If it's the same disconnect the battery for a while and try again.

Mine came with the two codes on a card in the owners manual and on the drivers side of the glove box. The ones on the side of the glove box are most easily seen from the drivers seat.

If you have the code - turn the radio on and when it asks for the code punch it in on the radio preset buttons. Shouldn't be any more difficult than that.

if you have navi and are trying to put in the radio (not navi) code, look at the upper "HUD" where the clock and air conditioning status is, etc.

I did this in hopes of my code, and bamn got it! I was not the origInal owner of my 04 tl, but i got the code through this site!

Just input the info, and you get your code!

I bought from the dealer, you might not get it as easy if it was person to person sale!

Good luck

Thanks to love my tl-s!

Glad I bought my car from my Dad and in all the paperwork on the car (and he saved EVERYTHING) I have both the nav and radio codes.

Quick Fix

I just had mine reset.

> Called (not original) dealer

> He had me press 1 and the 6 together

> I read him the two codes that came up

> He told me to punch in the code.

Done

PS Then he suggested I write it down and put in glove box

You do not have to go to a dealer!

DONT PAY THE DEALER! Honda/Acura has a website dedicated to radio/navi code retrieval. I am a tech and I use it ALL THE TIME for customer cars when they lose their radio code cards. All you need is some personal info and some info that can be retrieved from your radio display (even when locked).

Radio-navicode.honda.com
Radio-navicode.acura.com

I also just replaced my battery and entered the nav code and it is fine, but have no a/c or radio and it isn't asking for an additional codes. I have the codes, but not sure where to enter them. Where are the 1 and 6 buttons you pressed? Thanks in advance!

The radio code is entered using the radio preset buttons.
Input the code to see if that restarts the radio.

You don't need to press 1 and 6 if you have the radio code (pressing 1 & 6 are to get the radio serial number for the dealer to call for the radio code).
