Radio Code Entry with Broken Navigation

I bought a used '08 TSX for my son with a navigation system that doesn't work. He was able to still use the radio until the battery died and had to be replaced. It is now asking for a code which we have but cannot enter due to the broken navigation. Does anyone know of a work-around for this?

On earlier models of Acuras the code was entered with the radio preset numbers. Perhaps this will work if all code digits are <= 6?

good luck

I was thinking the same. I replaced the battery on my daughter's Accord a couple of years back and keyed the radio ID on the presets as her car does not have nav.
