Re: 2003 Honda Civic Radio
The fast way to connect an mp3 player is to buy an mp3 FM converter. it has this small input hole where you can use the wire included with it and connect it to your headphone of your mp3 player and then listen to it in the FM channel.

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.

If you're getting power to the CD player then there's power to the radio. The antenna involves the grid on the rear window, an antenna coil and cable to the radio. You can check the grid for a break and if it's small you're auto parts store will have a repair kit. My 05 Accord rear window defogger did not work and it took Honda 2 attempts to repair it. Other than checking the grid I would bring it to the dealer.
Your missing two digits from the upper serial#. Turn the radio off, press and hold the 1 & 6 preset buttons, then turn the radio back on. First the Upper serial # come on with a four digit number for 5 seconds then the lower serial number comes on with the other four numbers. (note: the letters U and L are not part of the serial #. it just indicates the upper and lower order of the #'s)You'll need this 8 digit serial number to give to your local honda dealer. There they can run the serial # in the honda system to get your four digit radio security code.
go to an auto parts store and purchase a repair manual it will clearly tell you how to remove the radio . read and understand the directions carefully if you have questions ask the partscarrier they often can assist you
if the tape player works fine and no static u most likely have a problem with your ground,check to see if your radio is getting good ground and also check the antenna unscrew the two bolts on top of the car and carefully pull the antenna upwards and check the wire connected to a piece of metal where the screw goes (if good) add another ground to your radio.
If you still have the factory radio, there is a way to split the power wire for the factory radio to the aftermarket radio. All you will need are the power and ground for your aftermarket radio, so the rest of the wires should be untouched on the plug for the factory radio. You can simply re-install the radio within the dash and retain the keyless entry as well as restoring your dome light function. Here's a PDF of some instructions. If you did not keep the radio, I would suggest looking online or ins ome junk yards, because it is needed. www.installdr.com/InstallDocs/Honda/PDF/466013.pdf
The code for the radio needs to be input.
the radio must have been disconnected from the battery.
look for the code on a card in the glove box.
if no card, then u have to pull the stereo out and get the serial #
to the dealership.
