I just bought one. Open the glove box and look on the side on a white sticker and you will find the five digit code on top and the serial number on.bottom. that's radio code. Open the truck remove the side covering and unscrew the DVD player and give the dealer the serial number on back an he should give you the navigation code

I purchased my Acura from Car Max as well and it didn't come with an Owner's Manual (what are the odds of that). Any who, I have a 2002 Acura 3.2 tl and the code they gave me was 15216. I think that the codes may be different for each vehicle according to the vin number. You can try that code (it won't hurt) If this don't work just call the carmax where you purchased your vehicle and a service consultant should be able to supply you with the code over the phone. I hope this helps!

You need to call the dealer, I had same problem. Now Honda
replaced my battery and I need the CODE for my NAVi!

Dealer where I bought doesn't have the code, nor does customer service.
Also no one has the SN....they say I have to pay to remove the Navi - Radio from the dash to fine the SN!......needless to say I'm NOT a happy camper!!!!..... All I need is the SN from the unit and then Acura will supply the Navi code.

Any suggestions anyone????

    The ONLY way I was able to get BOTH codes (without pulling my unit) was to call the Original Selling ACURA dealer.

My 2005 Honda pilot had battery disconnected then read code and now says error? I tried putting in radio code still error?


Sounds like you have the wrong code, maybe the radio was replaced? Hold preset buttons 1 and 6 then turn on the radio. It will display the radio serial #, 4 digits then 4 more. Dealer can get you the code. Or you can register at the owners site online and get the code yourself.

I need a code number of radio Honda Accord 1998 serial no.M97A189067


Nobody is supposed to have the complete database of codes, only authorised dealers. As a security measure, any time the battery is disconnected, the radio is Locked Out, and will not function until the security code is entered on the radio itself. Furthermore, after 3 tries, it wont even accept the code on the radio display, showing the ERR condition. Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.When you get hold of the code, disconnect the battery for 15 min. This will erase the ERR condition, and allow you to introduce the reactivation code.

Need radio code for a 2003 Honda serial numbers areU1110 L9512


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 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. Once you have the audio unit serial number, you can go to the Radio & Navigation System Micro-site to retrieve your 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. Most older vehicles (model year 2003 and older) require a visit to the dealer in order to retrieve the audio unit serial number. If dealer assistance is required to retrieve your serial number, the dealer will be able to provide the radio code as well. They do charge a fortune for this service BUT>>>>.... this website is so much cheaper to obtain along with detailed instructions http://www.radio-code.com/?gclid=CMr1lJPqn6kCFU5qKgodUDlDxA

Code radio


In the owners maunel you should have a card with the radio code on it.

The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2 or 4 hours - see the manual for your model. If you got the code from a card from Volvo, and it didn't work, then the radio has been changed or it has been reset by the dealer and your current code is invalid. You will have to pull the radio and find the serial & model number, and get Volvo to look up the code for that radio or the dealer may be able to lookup the radio code via vin# from Volvo. The dealer can reset the radio and enter a new code. When the radio is "ready" to accept an unlock code the display will say "codE". You will need this code if your battery is ever disconnected.

Changed battery on 1999 daewoo leganza and display said to use reset code, why do I find it? I have no manual.


If the car starts and runs OK, disconnect the negative of ground on the battery for about a minute. If the code is still not gone take it to AutoZone or someone to have them scan the car. You might have something else wrong with the car. Good luck.

Radio display reads loc and does not work any ideas keyless entry would not stop horn so i pulled fuse put fuse back in and radio reads loc and will not play


You need to enter a radio code to reactivate your radio. When the fuse was pulled, it cut the 12 volt to the radio and the radio anti-theft came on. Try entering 0000 to unlock you radio, if your radio does not take any more entries. Disconnect the battery again for 1 min and reconnect and then you can reenter codes again, if the code is not 0000. You can go the dealer and they can reactivate your radio, but if they want a crazy amount. Log on to radio-code.com, there is a fee but it's like $24.00. good luck and keep use posted.

Radio locked after disconnecting battery


In your manuel there is instruction to unlocking the radio and you may have the code's written in the back. If it does ask for a code try 0000 and if that does not work try logging on to www.radio-code.com.
They can give you the instruction and codes you need to reset your radio. If you have a good relationship with the dealer they may be able to help you out too since they are always disconnecting and changing batteries.
Good luck and hope this helps.
