Question about 2005 Honda CR-V

Cr-v radio problem gets worse

Brian032472-thanks for your help.
However, the dealer is not a honda dealer and either doesn't know how to fix it or can't. they want to put a cheap Kenwood in its place. First,I do not know if it will take another radio and how the antitheft system will accept it(although I know not to take the one they are offering. it is $100 garbage); then is there a problem changing the radio with another brand? Can the CR-V take any radio or does it have to be a honda product in order to still use the controls on the steering wheel?
thanks for any help you can give

I can answer your last question.

it would need a honda radio with a steering control capability. look at the socket and if it would fit, there is a big chance it would work. but if it wont fit, then it wont work. if you use other radio even honda radio but it does not have the steering control capability, then still it would not work.

tnx 4 using fixya,

How to reset the radio code of my 2007 Honda CR-V?

You have the wrong code. Hold preset buttons #1 & #6 down, turn on radio. Keep holding down buttons, record 1st 4, then 2nd 4, of radio serial number. Either register your car on-line with Honda to get the code or go to a Honda dealer.

My 2011 Honda CR-V EX driver's seatbelt does not retract all the way - Is this covered under warranty?

Sorry about this.
The only way to know if this is covered under warranty is for you to confirm whether your warranty period is still active or not.
Warranty period active; take your car back to the dealer and get the seatbelt recoil fixed.
Warranty period inactive: you have to bear the cost to get the seatbelt recoil fixed orrepaired.

I bought a 2002 Honda CR-V and the battery died. We have fixed the battery and now the radio is locked because we don't know the code. Please help.

the only way to fix this is by obtaining a code from the radio manufacture, or possibly honda when u call the dealership have your vin# handy. they will need it to acesess your code. this info is free of charge from both Honda and the radio manufacturer.

Hi i lost my radio code for honda crv lx 2003 ,pls help me out.

Sorry no easy fix, 2 choices, 1 remove radio and take to car radio specialist, they can recode to a new one. Or contact your local Honda Main dealer, give them your chassis No etc, and if it's the original radio they should be able to scource the code from the manufacture, Cheers

How can I get my CR-V radio serial # without having to remove it? Dealer is gonna charge me $90.

Sometimes Honda places a sticker in the glove box that has a 5-digit number on it, that would be your radio code. Otherwise, you can sometimes open the glovebox, or the ashtray and peek through to see the serial # on the bottom of the radio. I know that for sure on the newer Accords.
