If the code is not written on the radio casing or inside the glove compartment, in/under the ashtray, behind the sun visor (or similar “hidden” place inside your car ) then the majority of HONDA codes may be available here
You will require the car VIN number and Radio serial Number
If they cannot provide your code then you will have to try your HONDA Main Dealer .....or a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)
Honda provide a direct support service to customers who have lost the security code to their radio owing to the power being lost through a flat battery or having been disconnected for maintenance etc...<br />
<b>The site is maintained directly by Honda and gives you your genuine factory code for your radio for free! </b><br />
Honda is one of very few manufacturers to provide a service such as this and most people are not aware of this.<br />
You will need to provide some details - the VIN of your car and the serial number of the radio. This can be obtained on most Honda vehicles without taking the radio out of the dash and can be made to show on the display of the radio - full instructions are at the link. <br />
You must also provide the ZIP code and telephone number you used when you purchased your vehicle. This is to confirm that you are the genuine owner of the radio. Be aware if you purchased your vehicle from a non Honda dealer the service may not work as these details must be already registered with Honda customer care in order to verify ownership.<br />

Hi; I do not believe the need the s/n from the radio. If you can contact the dealer where you baught the car new, they will have the code in their sevice department records. Just tell them the VIN for the car and they should give it to you free. When you get it it is 5 digits in length. Press and hold the code button untill you here a beep. Release the 'code' ( the am/fm ) button and enter the code numbers using the preset buttons as the numbers (1-5or else 6).
What?? They want money? That is rediculous! I actually used to own a 1992 Honda Accord and also needed the radio code because I disconnected the battery. I went to my dealership (Honda House, hondahousemn.com), presented the VIN and serial number. After proof of ownership, they looked up the code and wrote it down for me free of charge. If possible, I would try going to a different dealership. Maybe even calling a different dealership would work. Unfortunately, Honda dealerships are the only place for Honda radio codes.
It MAY be written down somewhere in the manual.
It MAY be written down and hidden somewhere in your glove box.
You could MAYBE try going to a repair shop such as AutoZone or Strauss and ask them if they have access to such things.
I'll locate you a stock radio you can pick up at a local salvage yard if you'd care to tell me your zip code. Honda radios are notorious for burning out, and I am surprised yours lasted this long. The other route you can consider is going with an aftermarket radio. There are plenty of places that sell them and you can also pick up a harness that matches your vehicles wiring harness so you don't need to do any wiring other than plug it in .
Hi all! I have solved my radio dilemma. I took the dash apart and found the manufacturer sticker on the bottom of the radio. It has the serial number on the sticker. You need this number when you call the Honda dealer and tell them your problem. I simply called and explained what happened to the service department of my local Honda dealer and gave them the serial number I found on the radio and they gave me the code for no charge. They just put the number in their computer and VOILA! out came the five digit code(which, by the way, is probably the same for all Honda Accord EX and the same Acura cars from 1994 to 1998 that have a casette player/radio. The code is 21543. Try it if you are having this problem and own the cars with said dates above). Hope this helps someone else.
CHECK YOUR GLOVE BOX AND SEE IF STICKER IS PASTE IN IT, YOU MIGHT FIND YOUR RADIO CODE PRINTED ON THE STICKER, OR Make sure your radio is OFF. Hold down the preset buttons 1 and 6 at
the same time. Turn the radio on and your SERIAL NUMBER will appear. 4
numbers first and then 4 more. Write them down (obviously) then call
(800) 999-1009. Make sure you have your VIN number handy because they
will ask for it. They will ask for your name and approx. milage, and
your radio's serial number. They will then give you your radio unlock
code--WRITE IT DOWN!
if you dont know our code take the serial number behind the radio call honda dealer at parts be nice to the guy he should give you the the code sometime they domt give maybe it stolen radio if you know somebody at a dealer its gonna be faster thanks for using fixya pierre
