I have a 2000 Accord and had the same problem. The code is hand written on the top of the radio. It is very easy to get access. I recommend you Google "Year & Make radio removal" to get the procedure with pictures. Or you can just try removing the radio faceplate. Here is how it is done:
1. There are three phillips screws securing the faceplate; Two are located at the bottom of the faceplate. The third is behind the clock. 2. Remove the clock using a small flat screwdriver to pry the clock assembly away from the dash a little and then grasp the clock with your fingers and pull it out of the dash. I recommend diconnecting the two wire harnesses from the back of the clock so you can get the clock out of your way. 3. Unscrew the screw behind the clock and remove the faceplate. 4. The security code should be written on the top of the radio. Before you go any further write the number on the first page of your owners manual and put it in your glove box. 5. Reinstall the faceplate in reverse.
This worked for my 2000 Accord 2 door. I do recommend doing the Google thing for your model and year since engineers seem to change stuff just for the sake of changing stuff.
I hope this helps. Good Luck!

I have had the same problem. Look for a white sticker with numbers on it on the driver door. That should do it.

Can't be sure about a Nigerian Honda but in the USA if this happens:

Try to locate the code. Check your owner's manual or the inside of your glovebox for a sticker. If it is nowhere to be found the only way to get it is to remove the radio and get the serial number from the back of the radio. Tkae that number and your VIN to a Honda dealer. They should be able to get the code for you with this information. They may ask you for your driver's license and registration before doing so.

Replaced battery now I can't get into the navigation or radio. Says I need a pin. I bought car used.


Call your local Honda Dealership and talk to the service department. I think that they can take your VIN# and the model number off of your radio (may require you removing the radio) and then I think that the unlock code can be retrieved. The may also ask you to prove ownership.

Hope this helps.

How to reset a radio code


Usually this happens when the battery has been disconnected or replaced. Or it's a replacement Honda radio. The Honda radio requires a 5 digit code to reset. You will need the serial number of the radio. You may need to remove the radio to get that info. Take a cellphone picture of the serial # to have it handy. Once you have the number, call your local Honda dealer and ask for the parts department. They should be able to get you the code for the radio based on the serial #. if not, you may need to take the car in for them to get you the code .

I BOUGHT A 1998 HONDA TODAY AND THE RADIO IS ANTI-THEFT LOCKED. CAN YOU TELL ME HOW I CAN UNLOCK IT?


You should talk to the previous owner about the code you will need to make the radio work.
Your car’s audio system will disable itself if it is disconnected from electrical power for any reason, which must have been the case. To make it work again, you must enter a specific five-digit code in the Preset buttons. Because there are hundreds of number combinations possible from five digits, making the system work without knowing the exact code is nearly impossible.
If you had bought the car new, you would have received a card with your manual that listed your audio system's code number and serial number. Since you don't have the card, you can ask the seller for the code, or get the code number from your Honda dealer, but to do this, you will need the system’s serial number, or maybe the accord's vin number.
If your car’s battery is disconnected or goes dead, or the radio fuse is removed, the audio system will disable itself. If this happens, you will see ‘‘Code’’ in the frequency display the next time you turn on the system. Use the Preset buttons to enter the five-digit code. If it is entered correctly, the radio will start playing.
Hope this is helpful.
