Look in your owner's manual
booklet for your radio anti-theft code. The code is printed on a small
card (similar to a credit card) and included with your owner's manual.
If you can find the code, skip to Step 5.
If you cannot find the code, you'll need to retrieve it.
Turn your ignition off to begin
retrieving your radio code. Press and hold the "1" and "6" preset
buttons on your radio. Turn your ignition on.
Write down the code displayed on
your radio. The display will flash with two numbers: one beginning with
a "U" and one beginning with a "L." Write down both numbers (beginning
with the "U" number), and then disregard the "U" and the "L."
This number (eight digits) is your radio serial code. You'll need it to retrieve your radio anti-theft code.
Contact Honda to retrieve your radio anti-theft code. You'll need your 17-digit Vehicle
Identification Number, found beneath the driver's side of the
windshield and your radio serial code. Honda's customer service number
is (800) 999-1009. Provide the representative with the information to
acquire your radio anti-theft code.
You can also retrieve your radio anti-theft code online for free at https://radio-navicode.honda.com/
Turn your ignition to "Acc" or "On" to power
on your radio. Enter your radio anti-theft code using the preset
buttons at the bottom of your radio. For example, if your anti-theft
code is "55512," you would press the "5" button three times, then the
"1" button, then the "2" button. This will unlock and reset your Honda
well you have to unlock your car Radio, the anti-theft will trigger if your battery is disconnected or your radio will lock if its been removed. In your car manual there should be a slip of paper or a label with the code to unlock your radio, if not you have to go to the dealer to have them unlock it
I'm guessing that you disconnected the battery recently! but if you contact your dealer they can pull the code for you, you may have to take it to them so they can connect the scan tool and get the code that way!
to turn off the theft system, all you have to do is put the key in the door lock and lock and unlock the door, this shuts down the anti theft system,now this has nothing to do with the radio, the only way the radio would ask for the code is if it was removed or the battery unhooked,anyway try the unlocking of the door even try the passenger door, hope this helps.
This is the anti-theft device on your factory radio. When the battery died, the radio thought it had been removed from your car and went into anti-theft mode. When you turned the car back on, the radio should have read "CODE" on the display, at which point you need to enter the factory anti-theft code. After 3 failed attempts at entering the code, it will simply read "OFF" and the radio is locked.
At this point: - find your factory anti-theft code - it should be in your owner's manual, or you can contact a dealer to retrieve it - turn the key to the ACC position (radio and accessories on, but engine is off) - turn on the radio so the display reads "OFF" - let the car sit for 1 hour - radio will turn off automatically and reset - turn the radio on again, and it should read "CODE" - enter the factory anti-theft code
Make sure you have the code before starting the procedure. To enter the code, use the radio preset buttons. For example, if your code is "4321", hit Preset #1 button four times, Preset #2 three times, Preset #3 two times, and Preset #4 one time. Then hit the "Tape" or "CD" button. Radio should now be unlocked.

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)
1. Go to https://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.
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.
* 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/frequently-asked-questions.aspx?Question=2
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.
