Battery died and now can't use the radio. My husband and I thought we know what the code was, but now we can't get to work. We've tried 7 times now and we don't want to permanently get locked out. Anyone know the override code?

You have to go to the dealer with your registration and they will give you the code for your radio but you will need a good battery you will need to leave your key on the acc side and wait for 15 min then put your code in
Don't know if yours is one but some 95 Honda civic have a antitheft program. If the battery ever goes dead or voltage is removed from it, it will not work until a program code is given to bring the radio back to life. you might want to try searching 95 Honda civic radio code.
The first question is: why is hubby punching in codes when he doesn't know the correct code? Is he a lottery winner? It's a 4 digit code, he's got a one in 10,000 chance of getting the correct code. The code can only be entered in one time, and that's the 1st time. The penalty is: you must take the radio out, record the serial number and call the dealer for the unlock code. Only they have it. While you have the radio out, slap the hubby up side the head with it. This usually activates the learning curve regarding attempting to do things you have no knowledge to do.
Then wait 1.5 hrs with key on acc to then push in the correct code.
This should unlock the radio and alarm. They're connected. Why, so someone doesn't run off with your radio and car.
If hubby has done other stuff to further disable car and isn't telling you, remove radio and slap him up side the head with it one more time. The learning curve should then be permanently activated. Then go to dealer with husbands checkbook. At $125/hr or more, it isn't cheap. And they work slow.
some cars have a radio theft system that requires a code be enter to make the radio work if it is totally without power ( as if some one removed it from the car) you might want to call ford and see if your car has this system in it.
My husband had the same issue with not knowing the code (we bought the car used, never given the code). If you remove the radio, it should be printed on top. Odd, I know, but that is where his was located.
i shoul not afect any thing unless you replace the batterie with the car runing, and some radios have antitheft code if batterie die or disconect the radio will ask you to type a code in order to work again but most of times it display the worl code on the digital screen
