Go to the next dealer if you encounter a problem (i.e. one in a low auto theft area).

I had this same problem before and I did not have the code.I called a dealer and they told me to bring it in and so I did. What you need to do is take your vehicle to a honda store near you and they will be able to give you the code using your VIN number.

    Were you charged to get the code. I was not treated so nicely. They acted like I stole the car. Refused to give me the code so I called the dealership I now go to for repairs and they were even less helpful saying anyone who knows how to change the battery should know how to get the code. They flat out refused to give it to me. This code thing is an unpleasant experience and still not sure what the whole point of it is. So it makes the radio not work how is that a security feature. Makes no sense to me at all.

    My solution after the experience is never trust the male species when I am in need of help with my car. I called the dealership where I got the car, another dealership as well and they all told me if a qualified person was changing the battery there would not be an issue. My argument was what if I want to change my own battery?There reply was then call when you need the code. Here is the deception not one of them had the common decency to tell me my make and model did not need a code! And they knew what car and model I had! They all had their fun with me Ha! Ha! Think I will ever take my car back to them for service? I think not. I will find a female mechanic next time. I reported all the jerks too. You guys give car service a bad name when it comes to servicing women. So I set my own radio cause all it needed was the time set. You bunch of jerks!

Who is the code for honda element 2006

The security code is listed in your owners manual, hidden under the passenger seat. You can also call a Honda Dealer and provide them your VIN# to obtain the code, but you better write it down in a safe, convenient place, because this happens often.

Replaced both 02 sensors on 2003 honda element engine light still on drove vehicle 50 miles

The CEL will not turn off by itself. You have several options.

1. Take it to a dealer to clear the code, which will cost $50.00 to $100.00, depending on where you live.

2. Purchase a code reader (Actron makes a couple of nice models for about $150.00), and you'll have it for any future needs.

3. Find a friend who as a code reader and will let you use it.

4. Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery for about 5 minutes. This is a ****-shoot as you can't be certain that the CEL is on because of the O2 sensor. If it was on for some other reason, the light will just come back on after you've driven a few miles. Also when you disconnet the battery, you will need to reset your radio. You should find the reset code on a sticker in your glove box.

How to reset the 2006 honda crv car tape with the code

If you are sure that the code you have is right you may want to disconnect the battery and then re-connect the battery and try again. You only have a few tries to enter the code and if you make mistakes you won't be able to enter the code until you disconnect and re-connect the battery and start over.

2006 honda accord, after changing the battery. resetting the radio code. the radio will not pick up any stations???

Unless the Accord was jump started, creating possible power surge to damage radio, it should not of had any relationship to the radio.

But, just in case, would suggest disconnecting battery for 5 minutes, reconnecting battery, reentering radio code and see what happens.

If that fails, hopefully your under 36k miles or got the Factory extended warranty "Honda Care" Service plan, so take to the Honda Dealership to see what they say.

I just replaced my battery in my 2006 honda accord with a new battery. Now the car will not start! Is there a sensor or a reset button????

Hi there. When you purchased the battery was it supplied to you as dry cell battery? If so, was the battery filled with distilled water and left for at least 30 minutes to become effective/charge? If the battery was purchased (wet) already filled with distilled water, is it fully charged, effective and ready to go? When you say the car will not start, is the engine cranking over at full speed? If it is, then we need to consider quite a number of points. Firstly, are you absolutely sure the correct specification of battery is fitted and are the positive and negative terminals exactly the same and the right way round? If so, firstly, to ‘reset’ everything, switch off the ignition (in fact remove the ignition key) disconnect the battery for at least 5 seconds and then reconnect the battery. Then try starting the car. If the car does not start you then need to view if the PGM-FI ECU has any fault codes flashing. If there is a code showing, I’m afraid to say that you will need to seek the help of a Honda Dealer. Hope this helps get you started. Scottech.
