There are a few things to look for -- in the owners manual that came with the car it should have the code writen in there. if it is not there you will need to get the VIN number of the car and you might also need to pull the radio and get the ID number off the case and then go to the dealer and they will be able to get the un-lock code for you. make sure that as soon as you do have the code that you write it down on the radio case and in the manual for future reference.

Removing the starter


First you want to determine the reset code for your factory installed stereo system. The anti-theft system in place will shut down when you disconnect the battery cables. You will need the reset code for your stereo to remove starter.

Park your Honda Accord on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Disconnect the positive battery cable. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter.

Remove the starter motor wiring harness in 2.2L, 2.3L and 2.7L engines. In 2.2L and 2.3L engines, your next step is to find the bracket on the starter motor and disconnect the lower radiator hose. In 3.0L engines, you need to remove the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) cooler.

Locate and remove the starter cable from terminal-B on the back of the solenoid (for all four engine sizes). Disconnect the black and white cable from the S-terminal.

Unfasten the two starter mounting bolts from the transaxle assembly. Remove the third mounting bolt at the back of the starter. Place all bolts and nuts in the baby food jar to prevent loss. Remove the malfunctioning starter.

Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it.

Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter in your Honda Accord. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them.

Hope this helps

Can remove the front passenger seat of a 2003 Honda Odyssey? How?


On models with side airbags, disarm the airbag system before starting work. Get the code for the car stereo from the owner's manual or invoice paperwork. Disconnect the cable from the negative terminal of the battery. slide the seat forward to access the rear riser covers. Release the tabs on the outer edge of the riser cover and the clips to separate the riser cover. remove the lower anchor bracket from the weight sensor on the outside seat rail. slide the seat to the rear and remove the front riser cover--releasing tabs and clips as before. Now you can access the seat mounting bolts. Remove them. Tilt the seat forward and disconnect any wire connectors. Lift the seat from the vehicle. Installation is reverse steps of removal. Connect the negative battery cable. Use the stereo code to reset the radio.

    How do I remove the factory installed radio from 2006 Honda Pilot LX


    I'm doing this from memory since it's been about four months since I actually did this.
    This is for a 2005 LX. EX procedure may be slightly different.

    Disconnect the negative battery cable and make sure it can't come back into contact with the negative battery terminal.

    1) Remove the plastic tab (where a push button probably is for EX model) to the upper right of the radio.
    2) Carefully pry off the plastic piece which surrounds the stereo. I used a thin screwdriver and sock, and slightly scraped things up. In hindsight I should have used a specialized pry tool for removing such things. I think there were four or five places where this plastic panel is clipped into place.
    3) After you get the plastic panel pried off, slowly remove it. You will need to disconnect the three wire harnesses connected to the buttons / indicators on the plastic panel.
    4) The plastic panel should now be out of the way. Remove the four mounting screws holding the radio in place.
    5) Slowly slide the radio towards you. Disconnect the wire harness and the antenna.
    6) You should be ready to install a new stereo.

    As a side note, when pulling the wire harnesses apart be sure to pull from the plastic connectors and not on the wires. If you pull on the wires, they may come loose from the harnesses.

    If you are hooking up an aftermarket stereo, be sure to use a wire harness to connect from the aftermarket stereo to the Pilot's harness (otherwise you'll end up having to cut off the Pilot's wire harness which isn't ideal). I'd also recommend soldering and heat shrink tubing the aftermarket stereo's wiring to the aftermarket stereo's wire harness. It takes a while longer than the crimp or electrical tape method but ensures a robust connection and no electrical shorts when done correctly.

    My aftermarket stereo has a power antenna connection. This needed to be connected (the Pilot's antenna is part of the rear window and thus isn't powered) because there is a signal booster which requires power (otherwise you won't be able to tune into any AM stations and will get very poor FM reception).

    2004 honda pilot radio code


    I held down preset 1 and 6 while turning on the radio. The display then said "CODE." I punched in the 4-digit code (found on the side of the passenger side glove box) using the preset buttons, and viola! the stereo came back on.

    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.

    Radio/cd player 2001 honda prelude shows "error."


    Look in your owner manuel for a radio code, should be a 5 diget code. If you try to put wrong numbers in the stereo more than three or four times the radio will lock up. If you can't find the code call the dealer with the vin# and they should be able to tell you over thier computer. Another way to find the code is hold number 1 and 6 at the same time for 10 seconds and it will bring up a code that you will have to right down, that code will get your password for your stereo when you call the Honda Dealer. If your stereo does lock up just take your battery cables off and hold the red and black one together for 30 seconds and this will reset your radio.

    Stereo error code


    The code for the radio needs to be input. the radio must have been disconnected from the battery.
    look for the code on a card in the glove box. if no card, then u have to pull the stereo out and get the serial # to the dealership.
