I have just recently gotten a 96 honda civic, but it's asking for a code on stero system and the original owners dont have anything int he paper work that lets me know what it is. How can i find out how to get this code ?
You just have to go to a dealer and get one, they shouldn't charge you for it. Every time the battery is unhooked the stereo will need the code again, so try and get them to give it to you and not just put it in for you.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Try to locate the unique code number that will unlock the theft-protected audio system on your 2003 Honda Civic. It probably was imprinted on an anti-theft identification card that you should have received when you acquired the car. The code was printed on a document that came with your owner's manual packet
If you do not have the code, you will need to track down the audio system's serial number. In the case of the 2003 Honda Civic, finding the serial number may require seeking assistance from a Honda dealer. The dealer should be able to determine the audio system's special code number so you can reset the radio. With some newer Honda Civic models, the serial number can be retrieved electronically from the radio.
If you are able to locate the serial number of your 2003 Honda Civic's audio system without a dealer's assistance, you can obtain the special code by going online to the Honda Web site. You must first provide specific information to prove you own the car. For instance, you will need the Civic's vehicle identification number, or VIN, and the audio system's serial number.
When you know what the audio system's special code number is, use the preset buttons on the car radio to punch in the digits. This should reset the audio system, enabling you to resume using the radio and the CD player.

Hello you will need to visit the Honda dealer ship each Radio CD player code is different with each car has a separate serial number so .So go to Dealer ship produce the owner ship and they will help you with the unlock code for a fee.
The only way to get the radio code is from your Honda dealer. THis is an anti-theft issue, and you must have your VIN number to get the code. Often it is written down in the cover of your owner's manual too!
try disconecting the positive terminal of the batery for sevral minets (5-10) this will reset the brain box memory for the stero aswell as for the car it self.
what caused the batery to go dead in the first place?
things that i can think of :
1) left headlights on over night
2) bad altenator not charging batery
3) battery is old and not taking a charge anymore
4) new stero installed incorectly and drainging the batery
have you resently installed a new stero or amplifyer?
is the turn key igntion system hooked into the amp/stero antena lead so that thy are shut of when the ignition is?
of note: new streo >theres a blue wire marked ant that goes to the amplifyer if not there you need to find the orange accsesory wire coming from the turn key igntion>check for power when ignition is in the on & off states could be yellow in some cars but is usaly orange if this wire has on and of state controled by the turn key igntion this would be the wire to tap into for the amplyfire and the radio main power
check your radio's instaltion guide for code errors
its posible that when hooking up the jump it was done incorectly and blew up the radio
ie postive and negative where fliped
hope this helped :)
Have you checked the original owners manual? Had this happen with my CRV. The number will be a 5 digit number and will probably be written in the information at the very front of the manual. Try any 5 digit numbers that you see there. Thats how I got mine working again. Good luck.
check in drivers door jam , glove box there should be a little sticker somewhere there with a 5 didgit code that will be youre code or in with youre owners stuff,once you try putting the wrong code in three times it will show error then you will need to disfconnect the - battery cable to try again, if you fcant find the code you will need to take to dealer and ask them for it they should have it if not you will need the serial number off the radio and they can get it with that
