    I had the same problem. I just got off the phone with Honda. If you leave the radio on for an hour it will reset itself to "code" or "enter code." You can then enter the radio code. No need to disconnect the battery. I did this on my lunch hour. Also, if you pressed any keys before entering the radio code then they stayed in the radio's memory. When you did enter the correct code, those numbers were added to what was stored in the memory. That is why the code did not unlock the radio.

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.

To get rid of the ErrE message, you need to have the radio powered on continuously for at least one hour. After an hour, then CODE will come back. You can then enter your 5-digit code. If you don't want to wait an hour, disconnect the battery--that will work too.

This link steps you through how to get your code, if you don't have it:

Good luck. It took me 3 days to get my radio/cd back. It didn't help that my Honda dealership gave me the wrong code. The link above gave me the correct one, thank goodness.

From the offical Honda website- frequestly asked questions
The Unlock Code & device unit's serial# are listed on the anti-theft ID card that comes with the vehicle. The card is usually in the glove box at the time of delivery. Use the Unlock Code listed on this card.

2003 - 2007 Accord with Navigation System
1. Turn the ignition switch to ACC (I).
2. Turn on the audio unit, and make sure you see COdE in the upper display. If you don’t see this message, pull the backup fuse for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
3. Turn off the audio unit.
4. Press and hold the top halves of the SEEK/SKIP and CH/DISC bars, and then press and release the PWR/VOL knob. This display toggles between two screens.
5. The first screen displays a U and the first four digits of the serial number (for example, U2200).
6. The second screen displays an L and the last four digits of the serial number (for example, L0055).
7. Ignore the U and L, and write down all eight digits.

Hopefully it's somewhere with the paper work for your car, should be 5 digits. If not the
dealer will have to get radio serial no. to obtain the code. Good luck.

The battery in my 2004 honda accord died. I got a jump and now the stereo won't operate and the clock just flashes. What do I do?


You have to put in the code for the radio, it is usually on a card in your owners manual. whenever you replace a battery, or disconnect it the code has to be entered. same thing happened to me.

My battery died on me the other day and now the radio won't work.


The Accord radio does indeed require a code. Have you tried just putting the code in. If you do not know the code do not attempt to guess, as after a few attempts you will lock the radio for good. I need to know the error message exactly as you see it if inserting the code does not work.

Radio code


If you have tried a few times before NOT entering the right code or making error when entering code. This radio will lock you out, here is what you do disconnect battery cable for 60 seconds (positive cable) or disconnect radio fuse. Then re-enter code make sure that you are pressing firmly on number and make sure that you enter correctly.(POWER ON RADIO SHOULD BE IN ON POSITION WHEN DOING THIS) If this doesn't work then you will need to go to HOnda and fora fee they will be able to get code. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA.
