1994 Honda Accord radio does not accept code written on card.
Just bought a 1994 Honda Accord EX. Good shape. We installed a new battery in it. It needs the code entered into the burglar proof system in order for the radio to come on. Have tried entering the code numerous times. Yes the radio is turned on as well as the car. What can I do to have a working radio in my car?

Re: 1994 Honda Accord radio does not accept code written...
Since there were many different codes for this, The easiest way is to call the Local Dealership and ask for the Parts Desk, They have all of the Codes right there and can actually look your up by Entering your VIN Number.

I have right now the same problem. I just pulled the fancy/shmancy radio head out of my (Honda) 1992 Acura Integra and the whole dash is now a mess. It had been professionally installed. The dome light now doesn't work, the "door open" warning lights stay on, the clock is messed up, etc. I installed the fancy head in another car, in a 1992 Honda Civic. That works perfectly. Sounds like you need to find a professional installer to re-do your new head. I think the dash lights and the taillights are on the same circuit/fuse.
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
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) =
I'm sorry if this sounds a little too vague, but when the exact same thing happened to our Accord, my husband handled it and I wasn't really involved. Someplace you should have a card (It's either in with your papers if you bought the car new or if you bought it used, hopefully the last owners left in the glovebox or ? .) that has a 'security code' on it for 'resetting' the radio, etc. (There's some sort of an auto-shut-off in case someone is trying to steal your radio, etc..). When you follow the directions on the card and punch-in the numbers, it automatically resets and the radio and lighter* come back on (*BTW, I'm not sure if our lighter ever went out...??). If you can't find the card, then you'll have to go into a Honda dealership (They will NOT give out the # over the phone!) and by using your VIN they can look-up your #, although I don't know if they charge for this service or not. Hope this is of some help to you! BEST OF LUCK!
Check owners manual, made written on inside of covers or on radio pages. IF not check inside of glovebox for four digit code. If not luck, remove radio document all number, ie serial number on unit and call local honda dealer. They must run the VIN and radio info back to the motherland to get lock code.
