Tip & How-To about Honda Civic

Reset the Radio on your 2001-2005 Honda Civic

If the radio on your 2001-2005 Honda Civic (as well as some other Honda products) has lost power for any reason (i.e. dead battery, blown fuse, etc), you will need to enter the reset code.

The reset code for the factory installed radio is located in the glove box. Open the compartment; On the back of the door, usually near the left side, there should be a small white sticker. The sticker has one alph-numeric set and one set containing five numeric digits. The number set with five digits is the reset code for your factory installed radio.

Turn on the radio. When you see "CODE", use the corresponding station pre-set buttons to enter the code. If entered correctly, the radio should active immediately.

where is power window relay

the FSM covers this as does alldata.com
fuse 15 blown?>
here is free (Del Sol, is unique)


they sell them at HONDA, and most auto stores.

ok , i found the window schematic.
there is no relay, well ,that you can unplug.

do you have 12vdc to the door motor,? are all dead.?all motors?
if all are dead the fuse #15 (10amps) is blown (top cause)
the schematic shows:
the fuse
5 switches to fail
then to the "power window control unit" PWCU
this controller runs all windows.
if the inputs are good to the controller and the motors are good and not jammed, then the controller is bad. PWCU

use a voltmeter at the motor that is dead.
then work back from there, to the controller,

part ID 15 here, shows the PWCU.
this page shows ALL controllers.

this is typical of all cars you can look online at any time
and all cars. goggle "honda OEM parts"

When you turn on the Radio you get a message COD

If your radio lost power for any reason (i.e. dead battery, blown fuse, etc.) you will need to enter the reset code. If you look in the glove box, you should find a small sticker in the back of the compartment door, usually near the left side. The sticker will have two sets of numbers. The number set with five digits is your reset code.

My daughter owns a 2001 Honda Civic EX. After

The exact problem happened to me...

Opposed to a blown fuse, most likely the drained/dead battery caused the radio to "reset" itself. You should have a 5 digit (or 4) code that was provided by the dealer or owner. Most owners write it down somewhere on their owners manual. If not, the dealer can give you the code. Once the code is entered, you back in business!

Good luck!
