20 Most Recent 2005 Acura TSX Questions & Answers

I had the same problem when I had my battery replaced. I guess the mechanic tried to enter the code.... and after 10 tries he failed of course, and the system locked itself and gave the ERROR message.
All you need to do is leave the system on for an hour (Yes, leave it on... meaning you most likely need to drive around for an hour... and sit in the car for an hour doing nothing....) Then the ERROR message will change back to CODE (you will hear a long beep)
Now you can enter your code. Remember do it slowly. Enter the key 1 by 1... Do not input quickly, otherwise it will not work
Hope this helps!

you can find that out by simply having the fault codes read

You can get the transmission rebuilt. Look for a local transmission repair shop. It's much cheaper that way.

I had a similar problem and the solution was actually very simple. I opened the car manually (with the key not remote control), then locked it manually with the button on the side of the driver's door. I think that reset the alarm and all was good!

Most likely is one of your door pin switches is very marginal and barely making contact and slight vibrations push it over the edge.
The easiest way to find it usually is close the vehicle with all windows down, lock and activate the alarm. wait 2 minutes (for modules to sleep and fully arm). Now without reaching inside or touching the outside handle, grab each door over the open window and shake it gently while pulling out. this doesnt have to be violent by any means...just a light shake should be enough. If one of them trips the alarm and the others do not, youve likely found your answer,. some people believe in putting a spacer on a door pin switch if it has one. That can work for awhile and is fast and cheap. If the switch for the door is in the lock, youll likely end up replacing the lock assembly.
If your regular mechanic has an enhanced san tool for talking to the vehicle computer, he can extract the most recent alarm trigger data from the tool. This is absolutely the best and easiest way, but expect to pay for it. He has training, rent, and a 5000 dollar scantool to pay for to be able to do such work, its worth every penny.
Good luck.,

The 3 hopeful places most common on a Honda/Acura product are:
1- owners manual.
2-card in the glovebox or inserted in the owners manual
3-look on the inside lip of the glovebox door for a white or blue or silver sticker with numbers on it. IF you have the sticker, the number will be your radio code.

If you dont have any of those 3, you can call your selling dealer and they are SUPPOSED to keep it and return it for free, or any other honda dealer MAY give it (in person!) for free or a small fee. It can also be determined with a code calculator, but that requires the serial number off the radio, which means removing it, so lets try the above 1st as all are easier than taking things apart.

I wouldn't trust them at all

I would however-- be there-- & see the testing that was
done, in person,so you can make a informed decision

If you had been looking under the hood, once a month,
you would see the battery leaking & the cable being effected

No reason to allow that

Look in your owners manual and a lot of the time there is a card or piece of paper with the code. If not there, I would go to your Honda/Acura dealer and tell them you had to unhook your battery and don't have the code. In the past I have gotten the code this way and they didn't charge me anything.

fuses first , check all fuses.
then check if dead switches are 12vdc input and then dead output
to the window motors.
use a voltmeter for effortless and zero error, diagnosis.
the FSM covers all tests here, why not get one. and read those steps?
