Question about 1998 Honda Accord
There is a number in the glove box, but can't enter it pass the code e.
If it displays Err or E, it's because the wrong code was entered too many times. The unit is now locked out. You will need to go to Honda and get the correct code for the unit, remove power from it to reset it, then enter the correct code. The sticker in the glove box was for the factory unit. If it was replaced at some point, the code is different.

when you use the "preset keys" (the keys on the radio with numbers on them) to enter the code, each time you press a code number, a letter appears [c, o, d, e]. once the word is spelled out, from entering the correct 5 digits, the radio is reset, ready to go.
BUT if you miss a number, enter a wrong number, whatever, each number pressed, still makes a letter appear from the word "code". once the word is spelled out, by entering ANY 5 numbers, if ANY of the 5 is wrong, the radio displays a message "Error" and then a number 1 thru 10.
When you see the word "Error..."
the next preset button you push, starts the whole thing over again. The radio says "Enter code". That is when you enter the 1st of the 5 digits, the letter C appears, enter the next digit, the letter O appears, enter the next digit, the letter D appears, enter the last digit, the letter E apperas, the radio is reset, ready to go, if you got the 5 correct numbers entered.
you have 10 chances to enter the right 5 digit code. Each wrong try of 5 digits yeilds a display of "Error 1", "Error 2", "Error 3", etc 'till you get to 10 incorrect tries of 5 digits each.
If you dont get it right in 10 tries, you have to leave the radio "on" for an hour, then it will let you start the 10 tries over again.

The radio code is a series of only 5 numbers. The van had 3 copies of this code and the dealer probably placed one of them somewhere inside or on the owners manual.

That is some great news.
We are glad you found the card.
Put the card in a safe place.
Open the trunk lid and write it on the inside of the lid. Never lose it again.
There is only 2 options.
1. Your radio code is in your paperwork for your car (Its on a hard plastic card) Find it.
2. Take your registration to Vin and Ser Number for your radio to your local dealer.
These codes are a guarded secret and no one code fits all.
Hope this tip helps guide you in the correct direction to solve this problem.
