SOURCE: Honda Accord Key Code
To get the radio to work you don't enter the "key code" for your keys. You enter the security code for the radio. Two different numbers. if you make 10 attempts and fail, I believe you have to leave the radio on for either a half hour or an hour before retrying with the correct code. If you can't locate the security code for the radio try this:
The code normally comes on a separate document as does key codes or numbers. You could check the owner's manual to see if it was noted in there. (A bad idea.) Also check for a sticker inside your glove box. If that doesn't work then you need to remove the radio/CD player from the dash to get it's serial number from the back of it. Take that number with your VIN to a Honda dealer and they should be able to get your security code for you. They will likely ask for your driver's license & registration to prove you own the vehicle.

SOURCE: Radio code
I think if you remove the radio fuse for a few seconds it will start the code required sequence over. This next part from Honda owner's manual for 2002: "When the radio shows "code" then enter the five digit code using the radio preset buttons. If you make a mistake, do not start over--complete the five digit sequence, then enter the correct code next try. You have ten tries to enter the correct code. If you are unsuccessful in ten attempts, you must then leave the system on for one hour before trying again."

SOURCE: Honda radio says ERROR E
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.

call 1888mitsu2001, choose option #4, then hit * (star). give the
operator the last 8 numbers in your vin and they will provide the radio
code for FREE!
DO NOT PAY FOR THE CODE ONLINE OR GO TO THE DEALER (they will also charge you).
- you will also need to provide the serial and part number of your radio (takes about 5 minutes to take apart an eclipse dash...1 screw in the bottom of the HVAC panel) if you call the 1888mitsu2001 it will provide basic instructions on how to accomplish this.
- if your radio says "off" (meaning you entered the wrong code too many times) you need to put your key in the ignition and turn it to ACC mode for approx. 45min - 1hr and then your radio will say "code" at which point you can enter the code to unlock the radio.
