You will need:
Your 17 Digit VIN number
Your phone number and zip code when purchasing the vehicle
And your radio serial number
When your stock Honda radio/stereo begins to flash "CODE"
this means you have lost power to your stereo for some reason. Honda has built an anti-theft security feature in to all stock stereos. If the stereo loses power for any reason it will activate the security feature, which locks the stereo completely. They assume if you have lost power someone might have stolen your stock radio. In an event to stop them from using this stolen stock radio an anti-theft security system has been installed. It's really just annoying, who wants a stock radio anyway? THE CODE:
The only way to redeem this is to enter you RADIO CODE
. This is a 5 Digit code using #1-5 radio presets to enter the code into the stock stereo. When you purchase a new Honda the code card comes with a new vehicle, usually in the glove box. Stock the code is on white card about the size of a business card. It clearly says ANTI-THEFT RADIO CODE
. A white sticker about the size of your index finger is optionally put on the inside of your glovebox lid. My dealership always installed this sticker but some do not. This sticker if there has your radio code & serial number on it. SERIAL NUMBER:
The serial will be an 8 digit serial code
If you cannot find your ANTI-THEFT RADIO CODE CARD
you will need the serial number off the affected stereo to obtain your radio code.
There are three ways to obtain the serial number. Option #1
Look inside and around your glove compartment box for a sticker with the serial number Option #2
Is to pull the damn stereo and physically get the serial # off the back of the radio. Option #3
is only available on some 2001+
Turn ON the car.
Turn OFF the radio.
Hold radio presets #1 and #6,
While holding those presets, push the power to turn ON the radio.
Your radio will either toggle between two screens
U#### and L####
Show the 8 digit serial number ########
If it shows U and L screens, ignore the U/L and record all 8 digits WHAT TO DO WITH THE SERIAL NUMBER:
or contact your local HONDA dealer DEALERSHIP:
Dealership can give out the code with the same information you provide to the website.
VIN, Serial, and Phone/Zip code WHAT TO DO WITH THE CODE:
Simply turn the car on. If the radio does not turn itself on use the power button to turn it on. The radio should be flashing CODE
at you. This is want you want. You can now use you #1-5 radio preset buttons on the stereo to enter the code. If for some reason you enter the code incorrectly several times the radio with lock up on you and you will not be able to enter anything. Even after cycling the key several times. At this point the stereo has gone into another security feature. You need to simply disconnect your NEG- cable on your battery to clear the memory of your stereo. I usually do this for 1-2 minutes. Reconnect the NEG- and retry to enter you code!
