Car Clock flashing, won't reset after battery change

Ok, Here's what happened:

My car went in for some repairs. During repairs I guess my battery died and had to be recharged. Of course in the process my factory radio went into auto-theft mode and needed to be reset with the radio code.

Ok. So I got the radio code, Had to disconnect the negative pole of the battery because apparently the maximum tries to enter had been reached. Reconnected the battery, entered the code, radio is working fine, but my clock keeps flashing and won't set even when I follow the procedure to set it.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but my SRS light that usually just flashes for about 5 sec when I start the car, now stays for about 20 sec longer than usual, then turns off.

I have a 2002 Civic. Any Honda techs on here that can help me? The clock thing is bugging me because I thought getting the CODE was the difficult part, and now this.

Much appreciated.

I would try disconnecting the radio for about an hour and see if that will reset the head unit. As for the airbag light, i the SRS computer maybe taking longer than usual to read its internal data. Was the car jump started?

Re: Car Clock flashing, won't reset after battery change

2002 Civic EX

Similar problem here! After changing battery, the "code" letters display when I turn the radio on. IF I push any of the buttons for selected stations, I get an error code 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and/or ERRE. Radio/CD does NOT work. I read in manual it takes a "few days" for things to reset after changing the batter, but it has now been about 4 weeks.

What gives? any help is appreciated.

It is wanting the anti-theft code entry.

Look in your glove box for a white tag. Or with the owners manual and paperwork.

THANKS BUNCHES... WILL GIVE IT A TRY. But, IF I find white tag how do I enter the code? Guess I will find out!

NOPE, did NOT find the white tag mentioned or any indication of a sticker that might have been removed in the past. Manual has no info either.

SURELY there is a way to get the "code" to enter???

The dealer can get the code... You need the radio's serial #s. IIRC they can be displayed on the unit.
