I had to go to a dealership to get the radio unlocked, also the cause; ( radio locked) was Battery Failure. After I puchased a new battery I found the radio use to be locked.

I changed the battery in my 03 odyssey but the problem is that my radio is not on?

It means the radio is locked. You will have to insert the code to unlock the radio. You must have disconnected the battery or the battery ran down.

Any time a battery cable is disconnected the preset radio stations have to be reset and the clock has to be reset ( if that is what you are referring to )

I had to take mine to the local Chevy dealer to get the code to reset the radio after the battery was changed. I was charged $40 by them to do this.

anywhere from 1-4 years if you are worried about the battery you can buy a spare at radio shack or walmart

If the battery was disconnected during the repair you may need to contact the dealer for the radio code and procedure to enter the code.

The anti theft device in the radio locked it up. You will have to take back to dealer or garage that has a obd2 scan tool to unlock the radio.

The new battery was dead. ======================== Another contributor believes that this is the more likely answer: The 'newer' car radios, with programmable push buttons ... and other things where you can set it once and then forget it ... need to constantly connected to power or else they 'lose their memory'. When they're installed, there's a wire that stays connected to the battery even when the radio is off and the ignition key is out. If you changed out the battery on your car, then there was a time when this extra power wire to the radio went dead, and the radio lost its memory. You have to start from the beginning and reprogram everything.

You need to enter your radio code, it should have been supplied with the vehicle and or written in the front of the owners manual.

If your radio is locked and you DONT know the passcode then you need to call Acura....but if you do know the password...then you should enter it

The radio has a security system to prevent theft. You will need a reactivation code from the dealer to allow it to work again

It is not, but thanks for the concern.

The radio doesn't have a battery. It uses the vehicle electrical system / battery. If the power to the radio is interrupted, you will have to reenter the presets. Make sure the fuses for the radio are not blown.

My boyfriend bought a 2003 eclipse, when the battery was unhocked the radio locked. Apparently you have to call 1-888-648782006. You will need last 4 vin #'s and serial # and model # off radio, should be located in the back or bottom of radio. Hope this helps you!

I have an e320 (98). To access the battery remove the rear seat cushion. If you are disconnecting the battery make sure you put a 12 volt source between the cables. If you don't your radio will be locked up and you will have to go to a dealer to get the code reset.
