Re: Honda CRV 2005 asking for radio code
well check for the radio code as in following steps:
1:Under the Hood of the Car is a Fuse-Box. (Different Fuse-Box than
Inside the Car) This Fuse-Box has a Lid. Under this Lid is the Radio
Code. Therefore, lift the Lid off Completely and the Code is underside
of this Lid.
Look in your glove box for a white sticker with black numbers on it.
The sticker will be about 1 1/2 inches long and 1/2 in wide. There
should be 5 digits on it. These 5 wonderful numbers are your radio
code. Put the code in through the preset buttons on the radio. You'll
hear a beep and the radio will come back to life. (though you'll have
to reprogram all your presets)
2. Ok, there's a sticker there,
but there's more than 5 numbers on it! What do I do with that? Don't
worry, that's the serial number for the audio unit. Call a dealer, tell
them what happened and that you have the serial number and they can get
the code for you for free. Write the code down and stick it in the
glove box. Follow the steps in #1 above.
3. There's no sticker
in my glove box, what now smart guy? Don't panic if you don't find a
sticker, there are other places it's put sometimes. Check your sunglass
holder (applicable models), the center console, even under the arm
rest. I've even seen them under the cover of the under-hood fuse box.
Check all these places and hope that u will find ur radio code!! good luck!

Trent, with any factory systems you must grab the vehicle's VIN or have your registration and call Honda Service or Parts they will be able to provide you with the code. You will need the radio and CD changers serial numbers. Hope this helps buddy, let me know if it works for you.
If you are lucky someone wrote the code in the owners manual. If not, or you just don't have one, you will need to go to a Honda dealership with some ID that you own the vehicle and the vehicle VIN number (found on the metal tag on the dashboard on the drivers side by the front windshield). This is an anti-theft mechanism by Honda and anytime the radio looses power you will need that code so make sure to write it down!
Honda radio codes are located on a code card located in the glove box. This code
card looks like a white credit card. I have also seen dealerships place the code
on a label that can be placed on one of the sides of the glove box, in one of
the door jams, in the trunk along the bottom of the rear package shelf or on the
the trunk lid. Your stereo code is 62322.
However best would be to 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 don't
give, maybe it stolen radio, if you know somebody at a dealer its gonna be faste.
Another otion is to go to the site https://radio-navicode.honda.com/, punch in your serial no. & obtain the code. You will need to keep the following information handy

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
The procedure for mostly all Honda CRVs are the same as follows: 1) Turn off your radio with the ignition switch turned on. 2) Press #1 and #6 on your radio simultaneously. While holding these numbers pressed in, turn on the radio and watch the console on the radio. It will display two sets of numbers which will switch back and forth like U251 1 and L362 2. Take these numbers down and call any Honda dealer with them. With these numbers, any Honda dealer will be able to get you the code. If you are lucky they may not charge you but it will be worth a small fee.
The dealer will give you a number like 42351 or so. Turn your ignition off and enter these numbers - then turn your ignition back on and your radio should come on. Keep fiddling with this procedure until you hit it right.
My car (2005 Honda CRV) was shipped overseas and the radio asked for a code. After several tries, I searched the internet for a solution. Apparently Honda now allows you to obtain the code through their provided website. You will need the VIN #, the phone number and zip code that is on file when you purchased the car. Our car was purchased used and did not come with a manual. When I went to enter the code in I had already entered too many tries, now it reads ERROR E.
However, even before having the code (as well as now that it reads ERROR E) I can get the radio working. Push in preset buttons 1 and 6 and push in the power button simultaneously. A long number appears - at that point I pushed preset button 2 and the radio operated normally. Unfortunately, I do need to do this each time I turn the radio on.
