Look in your owners manual/package if you have one and there should be a stereo code card in it or possibly someone may have written it in the owners manual. If not, remove stereo and get serial # and call the dealer and describe your dilemma. They have the codes in a database and can give it to you. Unless they're A-holes and are very hungry you may have to bring the car in and have it done for about an hours labor charge. Then make sure you write the code down and keep it in a safe place.

SOURCE: Honda radio says ERROR E

You only get like 10 tries this means you made to many attempts trying to put the wrong code in. Disconnect the battery cable and then try putting the code in the radio again.

SOURCE: Need the free radio code to unlock a Honda Accord

If the code is not written on the radio casing or inside the glove compartment, in/under the ashtray, behind the sun visor (or similar “hidden” place inside your car ) then the majority of HONDA codes may be available here

https://radio-navicode.honda.com

You will require the car VIN number and Radio serial Number

If they cannot provide your code then you will have to try your HONDA Main Dealer .....or a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

Battery lost charge recently after car sat unused for 10 days. Now, the sound system won't work. I don't get a "code" message on the display - no response at all when I press the audio key on the panel.


Have to re-enter the radio code

I would guess it came with the vehicle

The only other thing is to ask a dealer for the code

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.

In my 200 vw beetle tdi, the radio will not turn on. the fuse is good for the radio, so what else should i try


You need to remove the radio out from the dashboard using special removal VW radio Gamma keys. In the rear face of the unit is placed a fuse (red color) = 10 Amp. Replace blown fuse with a new one. Then you will need to exit the radio out from the security "SAFE" mode.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer, or from an Volkswagen dealer!


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/
tdisline_701.jpg
The sequence of programming for a 2000 VW Beetle radio Gamma is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDM" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDM" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDM" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.
The radio is now ready for use!

Had dead battery in 2002 honda civic got jump now word CODE in radio display


try disconecting the positive terminal of the batery for sevral minets (5-10) this will reset the brain box memory for the stero aswell as for the car it self.

what caused the batery to go dead in the first place?
things that i can think of :
1) left headlights on over night
2) bad altenator not charging batery
3) battery is old and not taking a charge anymore
4) new stero installed incorectly and drainging the batery
have you resently installed a new stero or amplifyer?
is the turn key igntion system hooked into the amp/stero antena lead so that thy are shut of when the ignition is?
of note: new streo >theres a blue wire marked ant that goes to the amplifyer if not there you need to find the orange accsesory wire coming from the turn key igntion>check for power when ignition is in the on & off states could be yellow in some cars but is usaly orange if this wire has on and of state controled by the turn key igntion this would be the wire to tap into for the amplyfire and the radio main power
check your radio's instaltion guide for code errors
its posible that when hooking up the jump it was done incorectly and blew up the radio
ie postive and negative where fliped
hope this helped :)

Radio locked on 2001 saturn sl2


Press & hold the 2 & 3 buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds; a 2 or 3 digit code will appear, write this # down, press & hold the am/fm button for about 10 seconds: another code will appear, write this # down, then call 1-800-537-5140 and enter 202108 (this is a dealer code - you can use one of the others below, too) followed by the # key, then enter the numbers that you wrote down, followed by the * key.
The call will give you a 3 or 4 digit override code. Write this code down so you have it if you ever need it again. Enter this number into your radio following the instructions in your owners manual.

Note: If you get an override code that starts with 0, you drop the 0 when entering the code into your radio.

If you don't have an owners manual, then press & hold the hour button until the first 2 digits of your code come up, then press & hold the minute button until the last 2 digits show. Then press the am/fm button.
Repeat step #5 twice in a row it will disable the Theftlock and you will see "---". You will then be able to change to a new lock code.

IMPORTANT - Other dealer codes: 139010, 206053 and 620529 - these may be inactive by now; GM will remove them from time to time if they feel that they are "compromised".

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

I changed the battery in my truck...and the radio reset back to lock..however i dont have the code and tried to guess a few times and now it say Inop...how do i fix this?


Ok your unlock code is going to be 1718. Here is how to unlock this radio.
• Press the HR button until the LOC disappears and OOO appears on the display.
• Set the first two digits (01-19) of the code with HR (hours) button. • Note: As if you're setting the time of day you will not see the 0 in the far left side. Example; if the first two digits of your code is 02 you will scroll with the HR button until 2 appears on the display.) • Set the next two digits (00-99) of the code with the MIN (minute) button. • Press the AM-FM button to enter the code. The radio will now be unlocked and the display will change to the clock.
