'03 Honda Accord won't recognize CD player after battery replaced

I recently replaced the battery in my '03 Accord. When I turned the radio on, the word "code" appeared on the display. I entered the correct code and the radio started working, but I can't access the CD player. Pressing the "CD/AUX" button has no effect, nor does any attempt to eject or load a CD. The six icons showing which slots are occupied by CDs do not show on the display either. Any ideas other than disconnecting and then reconnecting the battery?

    I have honda accord 2003 V6 EX coupe.My car won't recognize the cd player either. The other day I was switching from my disc 1 to disc 2 and the disc got stuck somehow.I could not eject the cd nor could I load a new one. I tried pressing the cd/aux button but it made no difference.Finally, after reading on some forums I disconnected the battery and reconnected it again after 15/20 minutes. I have done that twice and my car still won't recognize the device. If anyone has any solution, please let me know.I went to see a local honda dealer and they said if they take it out and send it for repair, it would cost me 350.00$ and the warranty is for 90 days.That's absolutely outrageous.I would have installed a after market cd player a long time ago, if it was not for that huge dash board.It would look ugly without that factory cd player.

I have a crv also. the audio system has an anti-theft mechanism, to deter thieves from stealing your cd player/radio. you need a code to turn your unit back on, usually a four or five digit code, that should have been provided when you bought the vehicle. If you don't have it, the unit will come back on after, and only after a full, uninterupted hour of driving.

As the original post states, the code was entered. The problem is beyond that.

03 honda accord cd player wont come on. Says ErrE

There is a big possibility that the unit has an internal failure,and it needs to be replaced. First of all, you need to reset the radio to ask you for its code. Disconnect both battery terminasl for some 30 seconds and reconnect then.

Long time I heard that the Error E only comes on when you try to decode it 10 times then have to unhook the battery for 30 seconds and let it sit and after an hr you can try 10 more decodes.

If after doing this, the radio asks for a CODE, then you need the code now, but if the radio keeps displaying ERROR E the radio is bad (the radio will never give you any code to unlock it for that purpose you must go to your nearest Honda dealer as they are authorized to retrieved it online from factory).

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Hello, I recently changed the battery of my honda. When I turned on the car I noticed that the radio, cd player, clock would not work. It says code on the display.

You have to contact the Honda dealer with the VIN# and they will be able to give you the access code for your radio. Just follow your manual in the radio section and this should fix the problem. The VIN# is located on the drivers side looking at the lower side of the windshield.............Hope this helps you out.

03 vibe cd player will not respond

I blew a fuse controlling the radio, charging system, turn signals, heater fan, ,etc..this ran down my battery.

When I replaced the fuse, the CD player would not respond, but the radio worked.

I disconnected the battery for over 30 seconds, hooked it back up, and the time reset on the radio to 12:00 and the CD player works again.
