You need the radio code first if you don't have that then go to the dealer to get your code. check the manual and see if it has the code in there.

if the radio says off then you need to disconnect then put in the code

that should help you out

I have a 1997 acrua battery died now radio is asking for a code


when power is diconnected from your car, the radio will ask for a code. this is part of the anti theft system of your car. inside your owners manuel case, there should be a slip with the code on it.( hope its there) input this into your radio. if its not allowing you, disconnect the battery, and reconnect. this should allow you to input the code sequence.

Will not allow me to put code in. What can i do... Please help as i love my music!!!


If it will not take the code, then you are using the wrong code. The radio will lock up after a set number of attempts. Disconnect the battery for 1 hour and then reconnect it. Drive the car for around 1 hour and the radio will then accept the codes again. Go to the web site of the manufacture and sign up on the Owner's link. There, with the VIN # you may be able to get the correct code.

I want to change the battery


Unless you Have AoolCodes DEALER IS A GOOD IDEA




Disconnecting/Connecting The Battery

Always stop the engine before disconnecting the battery negative lead and make sure the battery positive lead is isolated i.e. wrapped in a suitable cloth.

WARNING: Radio code saving devices must not be used when conducting work on air bag or fuel systems. It must be noted that, when using these devices, the vehicle electrical system is still live albeit with a reduced current flow.

NOTE: Before disconnecting the battery make sure that the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes are known and, that no data is required from the powertrain control module as battery disconnection will erase any fault codes and idle/drive values held in the Keep Alive Memory (KAM). It is not necessary to disconnect or remove electronic control modules.

Always disconnect the battery before commencing repair operations which require:
  • The vehicle to be jacked up
  • Work on the engine
  • Work underneath the vehicle
  • Arc welding
Alternatively a Radio Code Saver may be used. With the battery disconnected, a Radio Code Saver will allow sufficient current to pass to maintain the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player memory, operate the clock and supply the door operated interior lights while isolating the battery in the event of a short circuit.

Reconnecting the Battery

WARNING: If the battery has been on bench charge the cells may be giving off explosive hydrogen gas. Avoid creating sparks, and if in doubt cover the vent plugs or covers with a damp cloth.

Always make sure that all electrical systems are switched OFF before reconnecting the battery to avoid causing sparks or damage to sensitive electrical equipment.

Always reconnect the battery positive lead first and the negative last, ensuring that there is a good electrical contact and the battery terminals are secure.

Restart the clock (where fitted) and set it to the correct time.

Re-enter the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes and preset' frequencies, if known.

Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the powertrain control module have been lost. Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes . Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. This may cause a driveability concern if the procedure is not carried out. This will allow the powertrain control module to relearn idle values.

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.

Car radio code


I had a Laguna before the gearbox packed up. Nice car but a really bad gearbox. My radio was the same. What I used to do to get it going again was disconnect the battery and thereby power it down completely. After I reconnected the battery it allowed me to reenter the code as described in the radio manual.
Happy listening, with the radio on you wont hear the gearbox tearing itself to pieces.
