If the radio on your 2001-2005 Honda Civic (as well as some other Honda products) has lost power for any reason (i.e. dead battery, blown fuse, etc), you will need to enter the reset code.
The reset code for the factory installed radio is located in the glove box. Open the compartment; On the back of the door, usually near the left side, there should be a small white sticker. The sticker has one alph-numeric set and one set containing five numeric digits. The number set with five digits is the reset code for your factory installed radio.
Turn on the radio. When you see "CODE", use the corresponding station pre-set buttons to enter the code. If entered correctly, the radio should active immediately.
Only a Honda dealer can give the code after removing the radio and obtaining the serial number. Before you go, if you have the owners manual or any papers that came with the care look through them it might be written down some where (5 digits).
many peolple and parts store sales persons as well. they should have used a memory saver.you need to break out your manual on audio.the code should be there, if you don't have one you can call the honda dealer with your vin number explain your problem and they will give you the code.
If you have the five digit code, you need to remove the negative battery cable for 1 minute and then put the cable back on. hit the power button on the radio and type in the five digit radio code and you should be good to go.
Have you checked the original owners manual? Had this happen with my CRV. The number will be a 5 digit number and will probably be written in the information at the very front of the manual. Try any 5 digit numbers that you see there. Thats how I got mine working again. Good luck.
Opposed to a blown fuse, most likely the drained/dead battery caused the radio to "reset" itself. You should have a 5 digit (or 4) code that was provided by the dealer or owner. Most owners write it down somewhere on their owners manual. If not, the dealer can give you the code. Once the code is entered, you back in business!
