You may have to call the dealer. Have your VIN number available. They should give that information to you.

Reset the Radio on your 2001-2005 Honda Civic

If the radio on your 2001-2005 Honda Civic (as well as some other Honda products) has lost power for any reason (i.e. dead battery, blown fuse, etc), you will need to enter the reset code.

The reset code for the factory installed radio is located in the glove box. Open the compartment; On the back of the door, usually near the left side, there should be a small white sticker. The sticker has one alph-numeric set and one set containing five numeric digits. The number set with five digits is the reset code for your factory installed radio.

Turn on the radio. When you see "CODE", use the corresponding station pre-set buttons to enter the code. If entered correctly, the radio should active immediately.

What are the precautions to take when removing the battery that will not disturb the car radio when you have no resetting disk for a car radio

get a 9 volt battery and cigarette lighter plug and connect the 9 volts battery positive to the center wire in the cigarette plug and negative to the second wire, then plug it into your cigarette lighter socket, then you can remove the car battery and install the new car battery. good luck :)

The radio no longer plays after installing a new battery, why?

After installing a new battery, lots of things need to be reset.
All the stations you were tuned to will have been lost - I suggest you start by checking the connections to the radio, and trying to re-tune to your stations. If that fails, check the fuse.

What steps do you need to go through to replace the battery on a 2006 325xi?

Before pulling out the old battery, you should write down the code of your radio so that when you install the new battery the radio will be asking for the operation code.
Replacing battery for that model should be less than 5 minutes to install new one, otherwise everything will be reset.
Hope that helps you out!
thanks for using Fixya!

New Battery installed, need a code to use radio

You can pull the radio and get the codes or call the dealer and get them up to you. You will need your vin # in the window and you will have ti have your name on the registration number before they will give it to you.

How do you reset the radio for a 2002 GMC 1500?

You will need to contact your local GM dealer with the VIN # proof of ownership & possibly the radio SIN # they will be able to retrieve the code for you if it is the original radio for your truck.
I know it's kind of late now but, If you need to replace your battery & don't have the code I recomend attaching another battery to the battery cables via booster calbes while you install the new battery.

I hope this helps
