    got the radio to work by pushing the 5-digit code using the preset (radio) numbers, not the dial on the navigation screen. But then I tried to get the navigation to work and it locked me out and went black and has not come back. Not even prompted to put in a code. The radio work, but not the navigation.

This is the Radio Anti Theft feature which is activated whenever there is a complete power loss to the radio (as in when it is stolen out of the car). A Honda Tech or ASE Certified Auto Tech would have plugged in a Memory Minder into the OBDII slot to not only prevent this, but also protects the Main ECM from resetting which could create some drivability issues.
If the Honda is now registered in your name, take it to your local Honda Dealer. They should be able to pull the Radio Serial number without removing it like you had to in the older Hondas, simply a matter of pushing the right buttons now. With the Radio Serial Number, Your Proof of Ownership (Registration) and a Photo ID that matches it, either the Parts Department Or Service should be able to give you a Radio Code for it.
Strongly suggest you join Hondas “OwnersLink”, you can find it on the Honda web site under Owners Resources links. In the future you can use this to recover your Radio code after you’ve been registered for awhile. Also keeps you notified of Recalls, Service Issues and even sends out Discount coupons (Latest is a $119 trunk cargo trays for $39, that is a Fantastic Deal).

Good Luck

Check in your glove box for a plastic card. my wife has a 03 accord and hers did the same thing. I looked and looked through the book and then I discovered THE CARD that it was on. I'm sure you have already looked but it just trying to help.

My Radio is on but there is now volume.

If the battery ran dead or was replaced that sends the radio into theft lock, you must enter the code that came with the cars paperwork new to reset the radio.

My battery went dead on my ford fusion 2008 now my radio doesn't work

As with many newr cars, Your radio probably had a security code which is required to reset it after the radio is removed or power was disconnected from it. You probably have the code written somewhere in your new car paperwork. If not, contact your dealer. They can probably guide you through resetting the code.

Resetting the navi and radio codes 2006 accord

The Owners Manual walks you through it step by step.

If your missing the manual, swing by your Dealerships Service Drive, most Service Advisors would be happy to show you how to do it.

You can also order a new Owners Book at directly, even have it mailed to your home. If you order it at the dealership, they get it from the same place, mark it up and you have to go get it yourself.
