Find out how here with the team at Acura of Ocean, serving Freehold area drivers in Ocean, and then retrieve your Acura MDX radio code.

Acura Radio Codes

Acura radio codes serve as an anti-theft device, deterring potential thieves from breaking into an Acura to steal a radio because the lock code will prevent them from gaining entry to the car’s radio.

How To Unlock Your Acura Radio Code

In order to enter your Acura radio unlock code, you’ll need your vehicle’s VIN number as well as the device serial number on the car. Once you have this information, you’ll need to enter it on the Acura Radio and Navigation Code website here in order to get your Acura radio code during the following hours:

  • Monday – Friday, 1:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. EST
  • Saturday, 1:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. EST
  • Sunday, 1:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. EST

Where to Find the VIN and Device Serial Number

  • VIN – Your VIN number is a 17-digit number that can be found in a number of different places, including your vehicle registration, the base of the windshield on the driver’s side, on your insurance policy, and financial services statement.
  • Device Serial Number – Find the device serial number on your vehicle’s anti-theft ID card (likely in the glove box) or on the multimedia display unit itself.

How to Enter Acura Radio Code

Once you have entered your VIN and device serial number for your car on the website linked to above, you’ll receive your vehicle’s Acura radio unlock code. Now, all you have to do is enter this code directly into your vehicle’s multimedia display unit to gain access to your radio again.
