    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 tohttps://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. **(alternative input method for some radios - Twist the knob and you'll see numbers move from 0-9.... twist the knob to the number you need, press the knob in and then it will move to the next digit.... do this to put in the code for the radio. * 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? See also:http://automobiles.honda.com/information... 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.

Try calling the selling dealership. Any dealership is supposed to be able to help you (and you don't have to go there), but most won't waste their time if you aren't "their" customer.

I cant find the radio code for my 98 honda accord wagon.


Go to the Glove box and get the serial number to the stereo, It is not the unlock code itself. Call a Honda dealer and give them the serial number, and they should give you the code for free.
Hope it helps Dave

I need the code t o reset the radio on my 1998 honda accord. The battery was disconnected for a while and noew the radio will not work without the code.


You will need to go to your local Honda Dealer. The unlock code can be obtained thru the Parts Department. You will need the VIN and proof of ownership (i.e. Title or proof of insurance). You will also need the codes that the radio gives you when you press and hold buttons 1 & 6. That will usually give you the codes, if not, then you will need to get the radio serial number. This can, usually, be found in the glove box. If not, then the radio will need to be pulled.

Cant Find radio code


The code is just for your radio and the Dealer can get it. I believe they have to get in to the PCM. It usually costs around $75.00. You might be better off buying an aftermarket stereo and installing that

98 HONDA ACCORDEX RADIO CODE


Radio codes are avail. from the origional dealer. If you did not purchase the car new usually the original dealer has them. You will need to show proof of ownwership. Hopefully the original dealer has not perched his records.
These codes are needed every time you disconnect your battery.,if you ever want to use your radio again

Radio code


Unfortunatly the code is directly tied to the S/N of the radio. Without the serial there isn't much I can do for you. But If you are handy with a wrench and can remove the radio yourself, then I can more than likely get a code, but I too would need the S/N.

Hope this helps
