U need to enter the radio's anti-theft code to unlock the audio system. Its written in your maintenance journal together with your owner's manual and you should have received and anti-theft card when you purchased the vehicle.
You have 6 tries before the system locks up. Code 3 means you used up 3 tries.

Hi there,

These are individual to each radio, if it is not in your service book, your dealer will be able to retrieve it unsung the cars VIN No on their master data base.

You need to pull the code number from the radio and take it to the dealer to reset it.

So I bought this car (acura cl 3.2 type S) at an auction place but the radio gives me an error I found out this happens when ever you change the battery. So I learned how to get the U and L codes (U3000 and L6771) but I don't know what to do next please help? I also have the radio serial number(UH018999).
