Hopefully, there is still a Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card in your glove box or with the Owner's Manual.
The five digit number has to be punched into the radio using the preset numbers on the radio. If you make a mistake punching in the numbers do not stop. Complete the 5 digit code even if it is wrong. Then try punching in the correct code again. Even if "CODE" is still displayed after you enter the correct code, input the code again. You'll have about 10 tries to do this and then if you still can't put in the correct code, you'll have to sit it out for about an hour before you can try again.
No card? Snoop around the car -- glove box, storage unit under the seat, all the papers relating to your car etc. to see if there is something with a 5 digit code.
Failing that, then you have to get the serial number off the back of the radio which means having to take the trim panels off etc. and then contacting your Honda dealer with the radio serial number.
Before you resort to that, give them a call first and see if your VIN number will enable them to come up with a code for you.

Yesterday the battery died in our Honda- and after the hassle ofreplacing it I thought all was well- until ...
Have had a similar experience with my 2000 Ford Windstar. The extra load added by turning on the headlights affects the instrumentation power feed. The illumination flickers and the gages go crazy. Your 2003 CRV may have its original battery which is near death. It took me four batteries to stabilize things and I still get the flickers at night sometimes
Inside the glove compartment, on the back side of the glove compartment door you should find a small sticker with two sets of numbers. The number set with 5 digits is you radio reset code. Turn on the radio and when the message "CODE" comes up, use the station preset buttons to input the code. If the code was input correctly, the radio should come on immediately.God Bless and ggod luck.
the **** way is to diconnect the neg batt term for a few mins, then put it back on...don't be afraid to try it.... it takes your car only a few minutes to relearn what it is supposed to know....works everytime
I own a 2002 Honda CRV. I bought it used and all owners manual was
provided with the purchase. I lost power to the car's system and the
radio set itself in an anti-theft mode requiring a code to get the radio
to function again. I tried pushing several buttons without succees. I need your help to put the right code!!
I had the same issue with the radio code error lock on a 2005 CRV. I was unaware of the code procedure and had locked the radio in the "ERROR E" mode. I was able to unlock the radio by pulling the #9 back up fuse located in the fuse box in the engine compartment. This reset the radio to CODE which then allowed me to input the 5 digit number which I had in my glove box along with my owner's manual. I am happy to report I now have a working radio/ CD player.
