Most likely it need the code putting in. You will find the code in your instruction booklet on the radio. Your dealer should also be able to give you the code but there most likely will be a charge. When you find the code, put it in a safe place just in case you have this trouble again.

Why is my radio is giving me a mechanical error code

Has your battery been changed, or have you had a dead battery? If so it will requir you to program into the radio a code that will unlock the radio. It is generally found on a sticker inside the glove box or on a card that may be with the owner's manual. It is a numeric code of 4 or 5 numbers. Punch them in via the preset buttons

I changed the battery in my 2007 Honda Accord LX. Now the radio clock is flashing and when I try and turn on the radio is says ERROR #. Each time I touch any buttons it spells out CODE one letter at a time...

Look in the glove box for the code , some dealers stick it to the box door. When it ask for code punch in those numbers. Some dealers put the code in the front of owners manual too. I think its five numbers

I finally got the radio code for my 99 Audi a4. But. Dont know how to punch it in.

Turn on radio - the word SAFE will appear in the display. Press th P.SCAN and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display.Release buttons. Don't under any circumstances continue to hold them down or press them once again. This will cause the radio to consider the number 1000 to be the input code.Use station buttons 1,2,3, and 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card. Use the button 1 to enter the first number 2 for the second number 3 for the third number and 4 for the last number.Once you have entered the code and it shows on the display,press the P.SCAN and RBDS buttons down again simultaneously and hold them down until the word SAFE appears in the display.Release buttons. Soon afterwords a frequency will be displayed. The radio is now unlocked.

After replacing a faulty battery in my Nissan Micra, the radio needs a code, which I have. I, however, need advice on how to register the code on the radio.

usually..... just make sure the radio is on and using the buttons for the preset stations punch in the code, after the right code is put in the radio will begin playing.

Are you asking how to get the radio to work after disconnecting battery? There is a code in your instruction manual. You punch the code in using the radio number buttons and it restores the system. Hope that helps.

My radio is broken

Hopefully, there is still a Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card in your glove box or with the Owner's Manual.

The five digit number has to be punched into the radio using the preset numbers on the radio. If you make a mistake punching in the numbers do not stop. Complete the 5 digit code even if it is wrong. Then try punching in the correct code again. Even if "CODE" is still displayed after you enter the correct code, input the code again. You'll have about 10 tries to do this and then if you still can't put in the correct code, you'll have to sit it out for about an hour before you can try again.

No card? Snoop around the car -- glove box, storage unit under the seat, all the papers relating to your car etc. to see if there is something with a 5 digit code.

Failing that, then you have to get the serial number off the back of the radio which means having to take the trim panels off etc. and then contacting your Honda dealer with the radio serial number.

Before you resort to that, give them a call first and see if your VIN number will enable them to come up with a code for you.

Hope this helps.

The radio/disc player won't work

In the owners manual booklet there should be a radio code that you have to punch in in order for the radio to work. This is in case your radio gets stolen no one else can use it. When you change the battery or the battery goes dead you have to put this code in for the radio to work again. The radio code may be on a card inside the leather case the owners manual comes in.. This is where mine was.
