If by resetting anti theft system you are referring to the radio code, the dealer can usually look it up by the Von number. If not the radio must be removed to read the serial number on the top of the unit itself. The dealer will look up the code by that number.
Try to locate the unique code number that will unlock the theft-protected audio system on your 2003 Honda Civic. It probably was imprinted on an anti-theft identification card that you should have received when you acquired the car. The code was printed on a document that came with your owner's manual packet
If you do not have the code, you will need to track down the audio system's serial number. In the case of the 2003 Honda Civic, finding the serial number may require seeking assistance from a Honda dealer. The dealer should be able to determine the audio system's special code number so you can reset the radio. With some newer Honda Civic models, the serial number can be retrieved electronically from the radio.
If you are able to locate the serial number of your 2003 Honda Civic's audio system without a dealer's assistance, you can obtain the special code by going online to the Honda Web site. You must first provide specific information to prove you own the car. For instance, you will need the Civic's vehicle identification number, or VIN, and the audio system's serial number.
When you know what the audio system's special code number is, use the preset buttons on the car radio to punch in the digits. This should reset the audio system, enabling you to resume using the radio and the CD player.

Radio code is specific for each and every car.
It is specific like anti theft code.
You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in
authorized dealership. Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can
provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

You can get the code only from a Honda dealer. You need the VIN number off the Honda, and the service department can look it up for you. Of course, you need to do this in person. It is for anti theft purposes, and that way, theives just cant steal your radio, and call the dealer and get the code. Once you get it, write it down somewhere , but not in your car!
Before anything else, please understand that if you have an anti-theft radio your car’s audio system will disable itself if it is disconnected from electrical power for any reason. To make it work again, you must enter a specific five-digit code in the Preset buttons. Because there are hundreds of number combinations possible from five digits, making the system work without knowing the exact code is nearly impossible. You should have received a card with your manual(if you have one) that lists your audio system’s code number and serial number. If you don't have the card, you can get the code number from your Honda dealer, but to do this, you will need the system’s serial number, or maybe the accord's vin number.
Remove the retainer that goes across the top of the battery (one end of it usually has a threaded rod so that the retainer can be loosened but stay together when it is removed). Loosen the nuts on each terminal and remove the cables from the battery. You should then be able to simply pick the battery up out of its tray.
Hope this helps you.
Most hondas have the code on the vehicle itself for resetting the code once the battery has been disconected or radio removed. Try pulling the glove box out and looking on the inside of the cavity. You should not need a code to remove the radio the alarm should not go off, it is the installation. The radio will not work with any other --vehicle without your specific code, good thieves know this and would rather steal the whole car. "Especially the Honda Accord. Have one in the garage and a 2005 Pilot.
