Honda Radio locked up

I own a Honda 2001 accord and recently I changed the battery and the word code showed up on my radio... I didn't look it up and began just punching numbers in... I didn't realize you only have so many tries and now the word code is locked on my radio for good .. Any suggestions as to resetting it?... I do have the code now but will I have to take it in to the Honda dealership to get a new code?...

SOURCE: Radio code for 95 Honda accord

You’ll have to get the audio system serial number and take it to a Honda dealer. They should be able to get that information for you. Since your local Honda dealer is being such jerks, you can go through Customer Service at American Honda Motor Co. They provide a service (at https://radio-navicode.honda.com/) to help retrieve Radio and Navigation codes (for free). Your phone number and ZIP code must match those on their file, so be sure to get that information updated before you start the retrieval process.

SOURCE: 2006 honda accord, after changing the battery.

Unless the Accord was jump started, creating possible power surge to damage radio, it should not of had any relationship to the radio.

But, just in case, would suggest disconnecting battery for 5 minutes, reconnecting battery, reentering radio code and see what happens.

If that fails, hopefully your under 36k miles or got the Factory extended warranty "Honda Care" Service plan, so take to the Honda Dealership to see what they say.

SOURCE: need radio code for 2001 honda accord lx

*** Please click the "Was this helpful" Yes thumbs up! ***

FREE and EASY methods to get your Honda radio UNLOCK CODE. (Dealerships usually charge)

Assuming you don't have the Anti-Theft Code and Serial Number that is found on the credit card sized Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card that comes with the vehicle at the time of purchase and is usually found in the glove compartment....

You have FREE options to retrieve that code by phone or on the internet BUT, the RADIO SERIAL NUMBER is REQUIRED (no matter what). (see bottom about removing ERROR E3)

***IF your Honda was made BEFORE 2001 the serial number MAY not be accessible without removing the radio from the vehicle.***

* TO GET THE SERIAL NUMBER (so that you can get the unlock code)

1. Get something to write with and on (you'll need it to write down the serial number)
2. Put the ingnition key in and turn it until your able to turn your radio on (accessories position).
3. Then turn your radio OFF by it's knob/button (but leave the ingition key in place).
4. Hold down the preset buttons 1 and 6 at the same time.
5. Turn the radio on while pressing down both the 1 and 6 buttons.(***IF your Honda doesn't have preset buttons on the radio then hold down the top part of the 'Seek/Skip' button AND the top part of the 'Change Disk' button instead.*** )
6. Write down the 4 numbers you see first and then 4 more that display. These eight numbers are the SERIAL NUMBER. This is NOT your CODE.
7. Make sure your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is handy to get the unlock code. (can be found on your insurance card, driver's side door jam, small plate on dashboard by registration and inspection stickers, etc)

* TO GET THE UNLOCK CODE (using the radio Serial Number and VIN)

---Internet option:

1. Go to https://radio-navicode.honda.com/ (YES, it's run BY HONDA and IT'S FREE)
2. Follow on screen instructions (Serial Number and VIN required)
3. Type in the 5 digit code into your radio. This will unlock the radio and return it to a functional state.

-OR-

---Telephone option:

1. Call American Honda Customer Relations (800) 999-1009
2. When the automated message starts 'Press 3' for 'Radio and Navigation Codes'.
3. Tell the Customer Service Agent you need your radio code. (They will ask for your name, your radio's serial number, VIN, etc)
4. When they give you your radio unlock code--WRITE IT DOWN and KEEP IT SAFE!
5. Type in the 5 digit code into your radio. This will unlock the radio and return it to a functional state.

* REMOVING ERROR E3

****If you entered too many wrong codes and got an ERROR E3 message displaying you'll need to do an additional step for even the correct unlock code to work.****

Disconnect your negative battery terminal (or pull the radio fuse out if that's easier for you) for 30 seconds then reconnect it and then the radio will say "CODE" again and you can put in your correct unlock code.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So what happened to begin with?

If the power from your battery to the Honda radio is interrupted the Anti-Theft feature kicks in, the radio is rendered inoperable and the screen reads 'CODE'. You must enter in the Anti-Theft Radio Unlock Code (usually 5 digits) to make it operational again. You know that much by now.

I don't have the car radio code. I have a Honda Accord 2001 and can't unlocked the radio, the battery died and that locked my radio. Could you help me? Thank in advance.


Good Evening, I am sorry to hear you're having problems with your radio. Unfortunately the only real way to get the radio code is pull out the radio and get the serial number off of it then call your local honda dealer and they will be more than happy to give you the code once you explain your situation. Any more questions please feel free to ask.

You need enter the THEFT SECURITY CODE... recently unplugged the battery or change the car radio? When this occur, the LOCK CODE is request by the audio system. Can find it in the bakc side radio (need take off) or visit your dealer with ths VIN and Serial number to obtain this information (sometimes need to pay for this).

I bought a second hand honda accord 2002, with chases number: IHGCG66812A106898. but the radio locked after changing battery, it's showing CODE.


Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.
