"i have a 2004 honda accord my radio needs a code"
I had the same problem on my Honda Accord.
After several attempts to fix and many error messages I called a Honda house and the lady in service said "No problem". She then asked for the two codes listed by using the procedure described above (the "U" and "L" codes which both contain 4 digit numbers following the U or the L.
I gave her this and she "looked it up".
In a couple of minutes she returned with a 5 digit code which I immediately tried.
Of course it didn't work because it only has room for 4 numbers.
I went thru the battery disconnect reset (for 5 minutes) and while that was going on, I remembered that the code for the navigation system was located by another service tech once before.
All he did was pop the top off the fuse panel under the hood.
On the cover, along with the fuse identification was a white sticker with some numbers on it.
One of the typewritten numbers had a "N" written with a pen on it.
Another number was 4-digit and had a "R" in blue ink, like the N written on it.
I thought "If N stands for navigation, would R stand for radio?"
The rest is history.
When I plugged that number into the radio in the code entry mode - everything started working.
If I hadn't seen that tech open and retrieve the navigation code, I never would have related "N" and "R". The under hood fuse box is located on the driver's side up near the windshield.

the cover is removed straight down, slowly working it with a thin tool or butter knife. WD40 to front and rear edge (there's nothing medial or lateral). The cover has 2 Y clips on each side, one about half way, and one that clips straight off of the hinge post. There are no "tabs". It will eventually unclip straight down. Then can replace with a DE3175 LED bulb (V-LEDs.com)

Try 'jiggling' the key while you hold it in the start position' this could be a failed ignition switch.
It could also be that the + terminal on the starter or starter solenoid may be corroded. Since the battery was just replaced, those terminals are probably clean enough but check the negative cable where it attaches to the chassis or block. If the connection is flaky here, enough current can often pass to allow lower current devices to operate but drop too much voltage if the starter is trying to operate. Starters require 100-200 amperes, many times higher than anything else in our vehicles and show up cruddy connections pretty quick.

There was a recall for the 03-04 Accord radio. It had faulty circuitry that caused the screen to go dim. Check with Honda to see if they'll still honor the recall.
