the battery terminal was remove and when we connect it back the radio now, show code i try to insert some code numbers and it show erro code please kindly assist me where the code located in car thanks.
The code normally comes on a separate document as does key codes or numbers. You could check the owner's manual to see if it was noted in there. (A bad idea.) Also check for a sticker inside your glove box. If that doesn't work then you need to remove the radio/CD player from the dash to get it's serial number from the back of it. Take that number with your VIN to a Honda dealer and they should be able to get your security code for you. They will likely ask for your driver's license & registration to prove you own the vehicle.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

They should just pull out! Hold the stereo firmly against the dash and pull the removal keys out! Also have you forgotten the radio code.....is that why you need the serial number because I have used this service on gumtree.com, they email the code to you from the serial number!
No, the stereo unlock code cannot be retrieved with the VIN.
You can get the unlock code for free from any Honda Dealer. You will need to give them the stereo serial number from the back of the stereo or written on a card (or possibly the manual) provided when the vehicle was new. If the dealer removes the stereo to retrieve the serial number they will charge around $100.
DANGER: Do not try to enter the code randomly! The stereo will lock out after 10 incorrect attempts.
I just bought my 3rd Acura Legend...but never encountered this problem. They removed my battery to place in another vehicle on the lot...and when they replaced my battery, the radio locked up and would not do anything. I called the Acura dealership in my area....have an appt for Monday, she said $51.00 to get code. I was reading on all the websites i could find about Acura radio codes...then i come accross one posting about an Acura Integra. It said her code was under her ashtray. I went out to my car...pulled my ashtray out. There was a white sticker with a 5 digit number first, and then an E number. I turned my radio on, entered 5 digit number...it BEEPED. I turned it off, and turned it back on...to the most WONDERFUL BOSE stereo system!! It worked ya'll!! I was so shocked!! It may not help everybody....but my Acura Legend 4Dr Sedan has MUSIC now!! So i thought i would pass it along...saved me FIFTY dollars!!
You have to do this: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen. You have to get the serial number off the radio by removing it or partially taking it out to see the numbers on it try not to remove any cords. With the stereo out (to make sure you get the right number off of it) call an Acura dealership with the number and they will give you the another number to enter into the stereo and directions on how to punch the numbers in. Make sure while you have the stereo out you write the serial number down and keep it in a safe place also the number that the Acura dealership gives you because if you sell the car or if it happens again its easily accessible. Good Luck!

Yes this happens because the radio enters a security mode (anti theft) after you disconnect the battery terminals to it, I'm afraid you can not find that code on internet, you can either find it on your car's owner's manual or go to a Honda dealer ship and they'll provide you the security code for your car, not a big deal.
Hope it helps and please rate the answer, as it helps me with my general ratings, thanks!
P.S. comment if you need more advice
if its an acura radio,and you dont have a radio code, you'll need serial #off of radio itself(requires removal).once ou have serial # you can go to any acura dealer with s/n and they can retrive working radio code from that radio through honda corporation.without that 5 digit code radio is useless.
Most of the time that code is related to either a burned music cd being used. Its not every burned cd that causes it ,but there are some brands of cd's that are actually physically thicker than than a normal cd or some writables.belaeve it ir not this causes the cd to beunreadable by acura radio.once error code is set radio needs reset(pull battery cable for 30sec or so,reconnect)you will need anti theft radio code to re-enter into radio so be sure you have it,if not you would s/n off radio and any acura dealer con use s/n to retrive radio code from honda.note:if same cd is used again stereo you'll be back to square one again.GoodLuck
Look in your owner manuel for a radio code, should be a 5 diget code. If you try to put wrong numbers in the stereo more than three or four times the radio will lock up. If you can't find the code call the dealer with the vin# and they should be able to tell you over thier computer. Another way to find the code is hold number 1 and 6 at the same time for 10 seconds and it will bring up a code that you will have to right down, that code will get your password for your stereo when you call the Honda Dealer. If your stereo does lock up just take your battery cables off and hold the red and black one together for 30 seconds and this will reset your radio.
