You must go through your local honda dealer, (usually parts department) give them the numbers off the labels on the radio, along with the VIN number of the car. may have to prove ownership. They can call Honda and get that information for you. Process is alot easier if you someone that works in the parts department, if not the honda parts department, then another parts department at another car dealer.

I replaced the battery on my 2002 Honda Accord. After turning on radio, the radio display read "COdE". I entered the 5-digit code from the Anti-Theft ID card. Radio display said "Err1"....

Hello you will need to visit the dealer to retrieve the unlock code for this problem your having removal of the battery has cause this to lock.Dealer usually charges $15-$20.00 for the unlock code this is the best solution.

Changed my battery in my 98 Honda Accord V6. Radio when turned on shows a code of C. As I hit preset buttons it spells out code then goes to ERR.

lol,sorry to laugh but i truly find it amazing how so many of these so called Guru's especially ones that are supposed "Honda Expert" can pass out so much mis-information and waste peoples valuable time!!!! On any HONDA/ACURA car with stock anti-theft radios/navi units require a 5 digit code(radio), 4 digit for navi units. When the vehicle was originally stocked in as new vehicle there were 4 places the prep tech would have made this code available. A card the size of credit card w/ S/N of device and anti theft code on it would have been placed in owners manual,warrenty packet in glove box(which after several different owners is usually lost),2 small sticker with same info would have been placed in hidden spots on car.As standard these places would be either on interior of glove box lid,on interior of center armrest lid(if available) ,or on inside back of one of the underhood fuse/relay box's.It is also noted and reported through Honda corp.,through dealership computer.if any of these card,stickers are unavailable, call dealership with vehicle VIN # & 70% of the time the dealer can retrieve lock code through computer by Vin number.Very last if all these options fail you, remove radio/or Navi unit and write down S/N of unit and either I or any Honda dealer can retrieve anti-theft code from Honda corperation and get you going again! There is absolutely no way of reprogramming a radio to new code to unit, i would like to apologize for some of the mis-leading information put out by so called experts on here,it makes the the rest of us real experts look bad.Let me know if you need the that code looked up by Vin or RADIO s/n, GOOD LUCK AND THANKS JOEL

92 honda exr stereo code please.

*** 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 isfound on the credit card sized Anti-Theft Radio Identification Cardthat comes with the vehicle at the time of purchase and is usuallyfound in the glove compartment....

You have FREE options to retrieve that code by phone or on the internetBUT, the RADIO SERIAL NUMBER is REQUIRED (no matter what). (see bottomabout 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 6buttons.(***IF your Honda doesn't have preset buttons on the radio thenhold down the top part of the 'Seek/Skip' button AND the top part ofthe 'Change Disk' button instead.*** )
6. Write down the 4 numbers you see first and then 4 more thatdisplay. These eight numbers are the SERIAL NUMBER. This is NOT yourCODE.
7. Make sure your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is handy toget the unlock code. (can be found on your insurance card, driver'sside door jam, small plate on dashboard by registration and inspectionstickers, etc)

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

---Internet option:

1. Go to (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.


---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. (Theywill 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.


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

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

So what happened to begin with?
See also:

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