Question about 2004 Honda Accord
I had a dead battery and replaced it with a new one. I can't find my radio book so I can set the error code that comes on the radio screen. Can anyone help?????????? Thanks
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).

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.
