I just purchased my first Acura 3 days ago a 93 Vigor. I love it but the radio is stuck on code. I got the serial number off the deck and called the dealership and they provided me the code but it does not work. I called 4 different dealerships and Acura Canada just to see if they would give me a different code but they all provided the same code. I read some where that radio i signals could interfere somehow from the antena so I unplugged it but no luck. The buttons all work because it beeps after each 5 digit code, then after 3 tries it locks me out. I then disconect the battery reseting the system and try again with the same results. Any one have any ideas how to fix this? :wtf:

You might need to replace the radio. I've seen radio replacements needed because they were stuck in code.

Thats what I was thinking but I just wanted to know if this ever happened to anyone else before. I guess I will put in a aftermarket or try to pick up a used head unit with a code that works for cheap. I just need the radio to work so I can play my I-pod.

If that's the case, aftermarket radio is probably up your alley.

Yes, mine was "stuck" in code. I even tried disconnecting the battery to maybe reset a unlock attempt counter. I didn't try pulling the antenna as I saw on a YouTube video.

I wanted to change it anyway since I wanted hands-free, Bluetooth, CD etc., and the radio was cassette.
