Re: my civic information
The last 6 digits; 200808 are probably sequential and the number of cars built that year up to the one you have.
The major portion of a VIN number (in the US) identify country of origin, model, equipment/engine installed, etc.
At least in the US, falsifying VINs is not uncommon if the car was stolen, considered 'salvage' for some reason (accident, flood damage, etc).
Sometimes, these phony VINs turn up when someone tries to retrieve the car's history and the VIN doesn't work because it is counterfeit.

Hi Hannah, Your engine size should be listed on the emission sticker(on the hood or front radiator support, and its listed within the V.I.N.(vehicle identification number) the 6th digit of the VIN is your engine size. Here is a conversion for that year: "9"=1.6LiterVtec "8"=1.5Liter "6"=1.6LiterVtec "3"=1.6LiterVtec Below are pictures of your VIN and emission sticker.
Try to locate the unique code number that will unlock the theft-protected audio system on your 2003 Honda Civic. It probably was imprinted on an anti-theft identification card that you should have received when you acquired the car. The code was printed on a document that came with your owner's manual packet
If you do not have the code, you will need to track down the audio system's serial number. In the case of the 2003 Honda Civic, finding the serial number may require seeking assistance from a Honda dealer. The dealer should be able to determine the audio system's special code number so you can reset the radio. With some newer Honda Civic models, the serial number can be retrieved electronically from the radio.
If you are able to locate the serial number of your 2003 Honda Civic's audio system without a dealer's assistance, you can obtain the special code by going online to the Honda Web site. You must first provide specific information to prove you own the car. For instance, you will need the Civic's vehicle identification number, or VIN, and the audio system's serial number.
When you know what the audio system's special code number is, use the preset buttons on the car radio to punch in the digits. This should reset the audio system, enabling you to resume using the radio and the CD player.

call your honda dealer on a 2001 you hold 1 and 6 down and the two codes show up then call that to the dealer and they may require some registration information but they can get the code that way. If you cant get the radio 8 digit codes you may have to remove the radio the numbers are on the radio and you call them into honda parts and they will get the code after you give the ownership info.
You must write down you VIN number. Also you may have to remove the radio to get the serial number and model number and write it down. Call the dealer or you may have to go to the honda dealer and provide this information and prove you own the vehicle for them to relenquish the information. At this time they will tell you what you would need to push in order to bring the radio back to life. Hope this helps.
You must get this information from your Honda Dealer service department. This is because this info is antitheft prevention, so crooks cant steal radios and reuse/resell them. If you go to your dealer , with your VIN number , and your car, they should be able to look up the security code for you.
The only way to get the radio code is from your Honda dealer. THis is an anti-theft issue, and you must have your VIN number to get the code. Often it is written down in the cover of your owner's manual too!
