I had the same problem with my 2003 Civic then I found a white sticker with a number in the car's glove box and that was the code.

First a warning- STAY AWAY from the website service called "radio-codes dot com." They have no security measures in place to know if the unit is stolen or not. So don't pay them and encourage such practices. besides, they're just going to do what you can do yourself for free, and in a more ethical manner for all.
Okay, that said, your code may in fact be found somewhere on the car. It will be five digits: Try for a small sticker in the glovebox or on the outer side of the glovebox. Maybe even try looking for it under the ashtray. Up under the trunk space somewhere. If it can't be found, the 8-digit radio serial number may be, and you will need that to get the code. However, you can get the serial number electronically on almost all models except '03-'07 Accords w/navigation in six, or six and 1/2 steps...
STEP ONE: get a pen and paper handy, or a friend with a photographic memory.
STEP TWO: turn on ignition
STEP THREE: turn on audio unit and check if you see "COdE" in display-- if not, pull the backup fuse or battery cables again for 1 minute or longer and until you do).
STEP FOUR: turn off audio unit.
STEP FIVE: press and hold the preset buttons "1" and "6" simulatneously, then turn on the audio unit. The display will toggle back and forth between two screens-- the first showing the letter U followed by four numbers (WRITE THESE DOWN!) and the second display showing a letter L followed by four numbers (yep, you guessed it WRITE THESE DOWN NEXT!)
Forget about the U and the L. The eight numbers -big or small in size- make up your serial number (NOT YOUR UNLOCK CODE).
STEP SIX: If the car is registered with Honda USA, you can simply go to the website
https://radio-navicode.honda.com/ to get the radio unlock code for free. (they will tell you the info that you will need to prove you're not the theif who simply stole your radio (ie: the serial number you just retrieved, the VIN, and probably your name and the address the car would be registered with them under).
STEP SIX AND A HALF: If you don't have luck there, proof of ownership, the VIN, and the unit's serial number should be all you need to get it from a dealer. They might charge 25 bucks, or they might not if you seem like or act like a regular.
Hope this helps. My first solution. But it worked 100% for myself.

You can try removing the radio and finding the serial number of the radio. A call to the local Honda dealer with that number and they should be able to retrieve the code from their computer database. They might also tell you the proper technique for installing the code

Code for radio/cd honda civic 2003


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.

Can I know the radio code for a honda civic lx 2003


yes you can . first you must have access to the serial number on the radio, which usually requires removing it from the vehicle. when you have the serial number than you can call a Honda dealer near you and give them the serial number and tell them you need the code. this should work for most japanese made vehicles. german made cars require the vehicle vin # instead. hope i was of some help to you.

What is the code?


Most hondas have the code on the vehicle itself for resetting the code once the battery has been disconected or radio removed. Try pulling the glove box out and looking on the inside of the cavity. You should not need a code to remove the radio the alarm should not go off, it is the installation. The radio will not work with any other --vehicle without your specific code, good thieves know this and would rather steal the whole car. "Especially the Honda Accord. Have one in the garage and a 2005 Pilot.
