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.

mrastenis:

I also have navigation in my car. It is also broken. Recently had to change my battery. I was able to enter code without the navigation screen. There is little screen above the air conditioning vents. With the radio tuner, you can move the numbers up and down and look at little screen. When the number is correct, push the tuner in. Then you can continue to do this for the rest of the numbers in the code. This should work. Let us know.
