I have a 2005 accord, and this worked for me.

1)Turn on engine w/ radio off. Push and hold down buttons 1, 6, and power.
2)I got the letter "U" followed by 4 numbers and then letter "L" followed by 4 numbers; write down those numbers.
3) Go to Honda.com
4)Click on Owners home link.
5)On that page you should see an option for retrieving radio codes for honda/acura
6)you will need to enter Vin#, home phone number and zip code fo the original owner. This will then give you the radio code..

How can I find the NAV code for 2005 honda accord.

Here is how I solved my issue after learning that I need a code for my radio & NAV after replacing the battery.

I open the glove compartment box and saw two stickers with a four digit code and serial number below. One of the four digit number activated the Nav.

To activate the radio, I had to press the tuning dial then turn it to the first number in the code and press the dial in. I did that for all four numbers and it worked.

    This was the exact problem I had. I got the mag unlocked with the 4 digit code on the sticker but couldn't figure out how to enter code for the radio. I only have one sticker with 1 code and 1 serial number. So I tried the same code as the nav and that didn't work. Am I just missing the radio code sticker?

There are two ways to solve this problem. First, my 2005 had the radio code displayed on a sticker inside the glove box. If you can't find it there, then you can go to Honda.com and plug in the VIN#, your zip and phone number and it will give you the code. If you are not the original owner, call Honda Service.

From Honda's FAQ:

The battery was disconnected from my vehicle and now my radio display is flashing “CODE” and the radio doesn’t work. Where can I find my radio code? If an audio unit with theft protection is disconnected from electrical power, you must enter a unique code number into the unit or it will not work. This code and the audio unit’s serial number are listed on the anti-theft ID card that comes with the vehicle. If this card is lost, you must obtain the audio unit serial number in order to get the radio code. Some newer vehicles allow you to retrieve the audio unit serial number electronically from the radio. Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific procedure. Some older vehicles (model year 2003 and older) require a visit to the dealer in order to retrieve the audio unit serial number. Once you have the audio unit serial number, you can call Auto Customer Service at (800) 999-1009 or have the dealer look up the radio code.

I just went thru this with my dealer. As you probably know, to get the correct code, you must have the radio serial number. My 2005 Accord EX has the navigation system, so that was the first problem I had to solve. The dealer had a service bulletin to tell me that. The Radio code on a 2005 Accord EX is only 4 digits. His computer showed 5 digits for the code. So he called Honda and the gave him the correct code for my serial number. It had no relationship to the 5 digits obtained from his computer. Nice, huh?

If we go to the dealer and ask them to help us get the code do we have to pay? I mean if we give them the serial number on the radio all they have to do is give up the code. How hard is that?

I found my code inside the lid of the center console. There should be a sticker somewhere in the car with this info. Good luck!

The battery on my 2005 Accord LX died and I was having the same problem as everyone else here. The owners manual said that the dealership should have supplied a radio serial number along with a code at the time of purchase. I could not find any such card or information so I called the dealership ( I live 25 miles from where I purchased the car). The person I spoke to told me to start the engine but with the radio turned off and then press the number 1 and number 6 buttons while simultaneously turning the radio on. She said that it would give me the radio's serial number and i should then call the service department and they would give me the needed code number. She said that the number that would appear would begin with the letter U followed by 3 other letters and the letter L also followed by 3 letters. When I tried this there was a total of 5 letters and a funny looking symbol. It looked nothing like what she told me would appear. But I did immediately here static and began playing around with finding stations. I found a clear station and then located my usual stations. Perhaps the letters that appeared after holding the numbers 1 and 6 down while turning the radio on was the needed code. The radio has been working fine since then.

I have the same problem outlined above, except my daughter "hit some buttons" after she saw CODE and now ERROR 2 is displayed.  Anybody know how I can get back to it reading CODE?

I have same problem as well with my 2002 Accord where its battery died and now it is displaying CODE and then after pressing a few buttons, it is now showing ERR2. I checked the manual and it says that to locate the code from the security card that came with my car. Unfortunately, I don't have the card. I assume that the previuos owner never turned in when he traded his car to the dealer whom I purchased this car from.

Take it to your local dealer and give them the vin number and they can look it up for you or you can call them but they prefer you bring it in so they know it's not stolen.

I am getting an error e code for my stereo after replacing my battery.


There have been too many bad radio code entrys and the radio is now locked out. To clear this you must remove one of the battery cables for about 30 seconds. After reconnecting the battery you enter the code for the radio. If the code is incorrect or entered out of sequence you will get an error message. Too many bad entrys and the radio will lock out. Your local dealer sould be able to help with this for little or no expence. If the code is incorrect they can get it for you easily by accessing the radio serial number through the radio itself, without removing the radio. They can use this information on line with Honda to get you the correct code.

Radio is asking for a CODE- I have the number for the code but when i put the number in, nothing happens.


are you entering code correctly, also after 3 trys the radio locks you out, you now need to leave radio on for one hour before trying to enter the code or else it will not accept it,may need battery charger so battery doesnt go dead during the hour, hope this helps.
