Here is what you need first:
Your Vin #
Radio Serial # (can be found in one of 3 places - white sticker in glove box, coin or ash tray and interior fuse box)
Copy of Driver License
Copy of Vehicle Registration

then call 1-800-382-2238 - option 5

Provide them with that information, they will then give you a fax number to send a copy of your registration and driver license to and they will call you with in 24 hours with your code.

I need to unlock my 2004 Honda civic rodio code

There is no default code, try the following.

1. Look in glove box for small sticker with numbers, should be 5 digits with numbers no greater then 6.
2. Pull out the ashtray and see if the sticker is on the back of there.(older models that have them)
3. Pull radio from dash and write down radio serial number and call local dealer with that number and they will be able to get the code for you. They will ask verifying questions.
4. If you happen to have all the books from the dealer look in the 'HONDA SERVICE HISTORY' book, NOT the owners manual. It should be on the first page in the AUDIO CODE box.

The dealer can not give you the code for the radio with your VIN unless you purchased the car from the dealer and they still have your info on file. If they charge you it's because they will do step three above.

Some say if you turn off radio and hold the 1 and 6 preset buttons then turn radio on it will give you the serial number. I hope this helps. If not, let me know so that I might be able to try again.

I have an 97 acura cl 2.2 and my radio is showing an error and is asking for a code, what do I need to do?

Take the radio out and you will find a serial number on it and call the dealer and they will give you a code to activate it, your manual will tell ya how to relearn the radio with the new code.
This happens every time the battery goes dead.

Radio code

You need to get the serial number off the sticker attached to the radio. It will require pulling apart your dash. Call an Acura dealership with that serial number and they should be able to provide you the code.

Who has an acura cl 3.2 radio code?

The radio code is vehicle specific, and is there to deter theft. If you have the VIN number of the vehicle the radio came out of, the dealer service department can usually give you the code.

Radio will not work

If the person before it had another stereo in the car or tok off the positive terminal without backup power to the ground and positive, and then they either put back the original radio or forgot about the anti theft system in radios now it can give you error, GM says to enter the unlock code "LOCKED" EVEN IF YOU know the number the radio has to be restored by the dealer, they have the code for your car to unlock the radio, the car dealer would need to take a look at the radio and will not tell you the master key code, as if they do that you can pass on the info and others can use it for illegal purposes.

I need a radio code .


there are two ways we can get a code for your vehicle. being a 2001 model, you most likely can just call the selling acura dealer and give them a VIN number. ( open the door driver's side and in there at the door jam) they will be able most likely to look it up for you. If you don't know who your selling dealer, try calling your local dealer and see if they can find it for you. sometimes they can pull the record even of it's not the selling dealer.

If all that fails, you will need to remove the radio and and get the serial number and model number so they can look it up that way. I would tell you how to remove the radio but this particular model is very complicated to remove for acura standards. Hope this helped good luck.
