Question about Car Audio & Video
Battery has been disconnected, i have the code to radio but do not know what what button to press to confirm/activae redio
SOURCE: blaupunkt 300 f
Hi does it just show SAFE or a number then SAFE?
ie: 6 SAFE
if it does show a number first this is the attempts that you have left to enter the code.
double check that you are getting the ignition voltage to the radio. other than that, you may have a faulty unit.#

Options you have:
1 - Check your owners manual. Sometimes the code is written in there. It is a security code that locks the radio and renders it useless unless you enter the code to thwart thieves.
2 - Call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 and go to option #5.
The representative will ask you for your VIN # and some personal info like phone #, address and radio serial # (press 1, 6 and "on" button on your radio at the same time, record 10 digit code). They then proceeded to have you get in your car to try different codes.
3. You can got to this site https://radio-navicode.honda.com/ to enter the vin - but you will have to prove you own the car.
Hope this helps!

when you use the "preset keys" (the keys on the radio with numbers on them) to enter the code, each time you press a code number, a letter appears [c, o, d, e]. once the word is spelled out, from entering the correct 5 digits, the radio is reset, ready to go.
BUT if you miss a number, enter a wrong number, whatever, each number pressed, still makes a letter appear from the word "code". once the word is spelled out, by entering ANY 5 numbers, if ANY of the 5 is wrong, the radio displays a message "Error" and then a number 1 thru 10.
When you see the word "Error..."
the next preset button you push, starts the whole thing over again. The radio says "Enter code". That is when you enter the 1st of the 5 digits, the letter C appears, enter the next digit, the letter O appears, enter the next digit, the letter D appears, enter the last digit, the letter E apperas, the radio is reset, ready to go, if you got the 5 correct numbers entered.
you have 10 chances to enter the right 5 digit code. Each wrong try of 5 digits yeilds a display of "Error 1", "Error 2", "Error 3", etc 'till you get to 10 incorrect tries of 5 digits each.
If you dont get it right in 10 tries, you have to leave the radio "on" for an hour, then it will let you start the 10 tries over again.

Try this..Turn your radio off, take the fuse out (for the radio) for one minute. Replace it and turn the switch on. Turn the radio on and enter the code. If this dosnt work you may have the wrong code. If you enter the wrong code 3 times it may lock and you will have to wait an hour before entering again.
