Hi!

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!

Can I retrieve the radio code with the Odyssey vin number? The code is not in the glove. I do not have the manual.


No, the stereo unlock code cannot be retrieved with the VIN.

You can get the unlock code for free from any Honda Dealer. You will need to give them the stereo serial number from the back of the stereo or written on a card (or possibly the manual) provided when the vehicle was new. If the dealer removes the stereo to retrieve the serial number they will charge around $100.

DANGER: Do not try to enter the code randomly! The stereo will lock out after 10 incorrect attempts.

I need to retrieve the Radio serial number from the top of the radio so I get the Anti Theft code. Can anyone tell me how to remove the radio from the dash of a 2001 Honda CRV?


IF you contact a Honda dealer and give them the VIN, they will be able to give you the code. They may ask you to come in and show them the title to prove it's really your car.

I have honda 2005 accord coupe with the CODE reading on my stereo


If an audio unit with theft protection is disconnected from electrical power, you must enter a unique code number 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 (some people say that they have found the code on a sticker inside the glove compartment, but I wouldn’t count on that). 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 (the following usually will work: Turn the radio off. Push the preset 1, preset 6, and power buttons at the same time, then quickly release. The serial number will come up to two sets of numbers)
. Some older vehicles (model year 2003 and older) require a visit to the dealer in order to retrieve the audio unit serial number. Once you have the audio unit serial number, you can call Auto Customer Service at (800) 999-1009 or have the dealer look up the radio code.

Here is the URL for the Honda Owner page. If you register (no charge) you are able to get radio codes using the VIN number of your car, the serial number of your radio, and the
Phone Number and Zip Code that you give them when you register.

Hope this helps you with the process.

Radio Code for unlock 1999 honda CRV car


HONDA codes are not readily available from anywhere on the Internet apart from here

https://radio-navicode.honda.com 

You will have to quote the car`s VIN number + other details.

If they cannot provide your code then you will have to try your HONDA Main Dealer or a Decode Service who will plug it into a laptop and electronically read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

Have you tried calling you nearest Honda dealer?
Give them the V.I.N number of vehicle, they should be able to supply code if unit is original to this particular vehicle.

Reset 1992 Honda Civic radio code


The Unlock Code and the device unit's serial number are listed on the anti-theft ID card that comes with the vehicle. The card is usually placed in the glove box at the time of delivery. Use the Unlock Code listed on this card. For certain models, the dealer may have placed a label with the device serial number on the glove box. eb235a0.jpg ----------------- If you cant find it, you need 3 things

1. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

2. Phone Number and Zip Code Information
  • For security purposes, we(HONDA) verify ownership by comparing the phone number, zip code, and VIN you enter with those we have on file. Unless you have updated these values through Customer Services, the phone number and zip code will be those on file at the time the vehicle was purchased.
3. Device Serial Number
  • you need the radio's serial number. since it is located on the back of the radio. your gonna need the pull the radio to get it.

Then CLICK HERE and enter the information for automated code retrieval.

------------------------------

or you can pull out the radio, take it to the service dept. of a honda dealership and ask them if then can look up the code for you. they might ask you for your vehicles VIN, so you might wanna have that written down.
i always get a marker (Sharpie) and write the code on the top of the radio. that way you can't loose it.
