You might try disconnecting the negative battery cable. That should cause you to lose whatever programming your radio currently has and move to the CODE required point. Since you have the code, you don't have anything to lose.
Might work. Hope so.

My 98 accords radio is reading err7 and will not turn on or play or anything

As a security measure, any time the battery is disconnected, the radio is Locked Out, and will not function until the security code is entered on the radio itself. Furthermore, after 3 tries, it wont even accept the code on the radio display, showing the ERR condition. 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.When you get hold of the code, disconnect the battery for 15 min. This will erase the ERR condition, and allow you to introduce the reactivation code.

I have a 1997 honda accord, I just changed the car battery recently, and my radio keep asking for a stupid code, I do have a code, and I enter the code properly, but the radio isn't working still..? help...

Are you sure you have the correct code? Look in the glove-box. There should be a small sticker, usually near the front left of of the compartment. There will be two sets of numbers. The number set with 5 digits is the correct code.

If you or someone else changed the radio, you'll have to contact the radio manufacturer with the radio model and serial numbers for the code.

My battery was replaced and now I have a code of Err-3 on my radio display. How can I find the secret code without having a model number?

If it is a Honda radio, go your dealer to have the code put in. If you still have your owners manual, check the back of the manual for the code. (Not in the radio section. At the back of the manual where the key code and radio code should be.)
