This is an antitheft device that unfortunately also occurs when a battery goes dead or is removed. A dealer may want up to $100 to do this.

There is a procedure in the owners manual to retrieve the radios serial number by pressing the 1 and 6 buttons while turning on the radio. The serial number then appears on the display. This only works if "code" is displayed on the radio. If you can do this, write it down. If you cannot, then there is usually a sticker in the glove compartment with this information.

You will also need the VIN (vehicle identification number) along with the radio serial number.

Call Honda America toll free at 1-800-999-1009 and they will give you the unlock code and the procedure for free.

best wishes

You might wanna contact your dealer and they will ask you for you VIN number to get it unlocked if you are lucky and they should do it for you for free if you bough the car from them. Good luck

Hi

If you can get the serial number off the side of the radio or phone honda with your vehicle I.D number they will be able to get it for you. failing that a radio decoder can do this at your home, cost about $40 or £25 I think. Finally if you look on ebay some dealers can send you the code if you have the serial number coat there is $17 here is the link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Mitsubishi-and-Honda-radio-code-/300388577711?pt=Car_Audio_Video&hash=item45f08df1af

Default radio lock code


The code is different for every radio. The only way to get the radio lock code would be to go to a dealer. Some dealers will do it for nothing, others will charge you about 50 to 60 dollars to retrieve and unlock the radio. It is possible that the dealer will not be able to retrieve the code and you may have to put in a after market stereo into the car(I had this happen to me once). If you don't have the code, your best bet is to take it to the dealer as putting in too many wrong codes will only further lock your radio and prevent you from making further attempts.

How to put code into 1997 lasabre radio, i know the code.


If you are refering to the Theft Lock code, you must first push the right sequence of radio buttons to enter the un lock mode in the radio's computer. Once the radio's Theft Lock Identifier code is displayed, you then enter the un lock code into the radio. Ususally, this is a dealer operation as they have the online program to retrieve the unlock code after they submit your Theft Lock ID code. I'm wondering how you were able to get a unlock code without the dealer's assistance.
