SOURCE: Reset 1992 Honda Civic radio code

The Unlock Code and the device unit's serial number are listed on the anti-theft ID card that comes with the vehicle. The card is usually placed in the glove box at the time of delivery. Use the Unlock Code listed on this card. For certain models, the dealer may have placed a label with the device serial number on the glove box. eb235a0.jpg ----------------- If you cant find it, you need 3 things

1. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

2. Phone Number and Zip Code Information

  • For security purposes, we(HONDA) verify ownership by comparing the phone number, zip code, and VIN you enter with those we have on file. Unless you have updated these values through Customer Services, the phone number and zip code will be those on file at the time the vehicle was purchased.
3. Device Serial Number
  • you need the radio's serial number. since it is located on the back of the radio. your gonna need the pull the radio to get it.

Then CLICK HERE and enter the information for automated code retrieval.

------------------------------

or you can pull out the radio, take it to the service dept. of a honda dealership and ask them if then can look up the code for you. they might ask you for your vehicles VIN, so you might wanna have that written down.
i always get a marker (Sharpie) and write the code on the top of the radio. that way you can't loose it.

SOURCE: replaced battery - need to reset clock / radio won't play

My manual said the same thing. Although I have never had the radio stop working on me even after I changed the battery. To set the clock you hold the mode button, like your changing the bass/ treble. Hold it down then it will show clock flashing. From there I cant remember i think i used the arrows by the number pad to change the time. Hope this works for you.

SOURCE: 2004 saturn vue Replaced battery. Radio and Cd no longer work.

Turn off the car and remove the negative battery cable off. let sit a few minutes then reconnect the cable. try it several times. The removal of the battery causes the computer to deprogram itself. what you will be doing is re-programming the computer module.

SOURCE: battery ran down.now radio/clock don't work. flashes Error.can this be reset?

try taking the radio out and looking on the top for the parts number. call Honda and tell them what is going on and they will give you a 4 digit code that will reset the radio. i had the same problem with my 05 civic, did that and it worked for me.
good luck

I need the radio code for a 2005 kia sedona


Unfortunately, that's something you'll most likely have to call the dealer about. I had a GM that had the same problem and the dealer wanted $80 just to look into their records to retrieve the code. Needless to say I bought an aftermarket radio for about $20 more.
Check your Owner's Manual book first. Sometimes the code will be printed somewhere on the inside of the front/back page or in the section that covers the code system itself. If nothing else, the manual may instruct you how to reset the system for just this situation.

Just bought 1995 Lexus from someone who was NOT the original owner, they replaced the battery and the radio stopped working..they took to a mechanic and he said the code needed to be reset. How do I find...


First thing to do is look carefully in the owners manual. A good mechanic [or owner] will write the code in either the main manual or the manual for the radio. If there is no code available, go to any Lexus dealer's parts department. Be SURE to bring your auto registration with you [to prove you own the car] The parts guy will be able to look up your radio code using the VIN [vehicle identification number] listed on your registration. Usually, there is no charge for that.
Your owners manual will spell out the procedure for entering the security code [usually 4 or 5 numbers] to get the radio working again.

Radio does not work. Cannot set clock. Door open


There is an anti-theft system tied into your radio. When the battery goes dead, you have to reset your radio with a code. there is a code in your manual that has to be typed in. If you don't have the manual, go to the dealer. They will find the code, for free. Then, look in the manual. You have to type in the code, then hit a button or two, then the radio will come right back on. then you can reset the clock too.

2007 Honda Accord--battery died now radio and clock don't work


Hi. Jumping the battery when the radio is turned on will often cause a problem. I would check the fuses for the radio first as one of them may have blown. Regarding the clock it is blinking and needs to be reset.

Since this is a relatively new car I recommend going to a book store and purchasing the service manual for Honda which includes the 2007 models. This will you how to reset the clock. Then keep the manual in the glove compartment for all future reference.

Good luck.
