Error 7 on 2005 Honda CRV Radio

Hey folks,

I'm sure this has come up but I cannot find it. I had to have my battery replaced and the word "CODE" was displayed. My daughter, being the 12-year old that she is, pressed all sorts of buttons and apparently I'm locked out. I did find my card with the security access code and the instruction booklet says to leave the power on for an hour for it to reset...an hour and a half later, nothing. Any advice?

I had the same issue with the radio code error lock on a 2005 CRV. I was unaware of the code procedure and had locked the radio in the "ERROR E" mode. I was able to unlock the radio by pulling the #9 back up fuse located in the fuse box in the engine compartment. This reset the radio to CODE which then allowed me to input the 5 digit number which I had in my glove box along with my owner's manual. I am happy to report I now have a working radio/ CD player.

    I replaced my battery and used the procedure of removing the #9 fuse to reset the E-Code. I entered the correct unlock code and the radio freed up right away. Thanks NJ Guy for the info..

    Had "ERROR 7" in radio window. Removed fuse #9 in the engine compartment and was able to reset the code on our 2006 Honda CR-V. Removing the Front Accessory Power Socket fuse #18 next to the driver's right knee did not work. Thanks a bunch!

Same problem with 2002 Honda CR-V. Could not find security access code. Drove around for about two weeks staring at that Code message. Called dealership. Code was posted inside glove box. Could see it sitting in drivers seat with glove box open. Pushed all the radio buttons for the umpteenth time. Code demanded to be entered. Entered code and it worked immediately. Never knew about reset time.

Instead I found an alternate solution to the need for cut power to reset the radio code error lock. If you turn the ignition to the accessory position (engine NOT running) and leave the locked radio ON for 1 hour, the radio error lock will reset and you will then be able to enter the correct code for restoring radio function for my 2002 Honda Odyssey.

Vauxhall meriva wont start after changing flat battery.the message safe is showing on dash board


Make sure ignition is switched on, hold down button AS and turn on the stereo. Wait for the beep, then release button AS. Display should now have 4 dashes ----. Enter correct code using the radio preset buttons 1 to 4. Once code is entered, press and hold down button AS again until code is either confirmed or denied. WARNING - you only have a max of 10 attempts to get it right, but if still no luck after the 8th attempt, STOP and contact a Vaux dealer.

Car won't start and alarm is going off


This is an anti-theft measure. Usually, there is a code to input in the radio/display to disable it. If you can't find it in your owner's manual, you'll need to contact a dealer to get the code.

There are some folks who sell the codes online. Beware of scams with that.

Hey there i have a 1997 BMW 328i and i changed my battery n when i started the car up my radio said code wait andd now i cant get rid of it please help me fix this. thank you ...


Hi chris,

Code wait is part of the built in anti-theft system BMW has for the radio. The ignition must remain in the on position for 1 continuous hour. Usually rush hour traffic does the trick. You will need the radio code to enter into the radio after it displays "CODE". just enter the code according to the buttons listed 1-6. ie if it ask for 13556, just enter the digits in that sequence. Make sure you have the correct code. If 3 unsuccessful consecutive entries are made, you will have to wait another hour.

if you do a search for GM car alternators, Buick, Pontiac, Saturn, Chevy, Caddy etc. on www.youtube.com you can no doubt find videos of lots of folks doing this. some are even actual mechanics.

Radio error on Acura


We had the same problem. As advised from another website, we unhooked the battery and hooked the cables together for about 10 minutes. This reset the radio and allowed us to put in the 5-digit code. Now we're jammin'!

Radio won't restart after battery change


Sometimes it takes MUCH longer than the 4 hours (up to 8).
Neat system, huh? By the time it resets, your battery is dead and it will shut off again!!! No wonder the stock radio hardly ever gets stolen. Put a trickle charger on the battery, and leave it on for longer. (Make sure your insurance covers theft lol, I did it once and forgot that the key was in my car in the driveway for a full day)
