The "Theftlock" theft deterrent system is a feature on all base and uplevel radios. There is no need to program a security code into the radio as in past model years. The theft deterrent system now utilizes Class 2 serial data to determine if the radio is in the appropriate vehicle. Each time the radio receives the "run" power mode message, it compares the VIN information it has stored to the VIN information received from a module on the Class 2 serial data circuit responsible for transmitting that information. If a mis-match occurs, the radio display will indicate to the user the radio is locked. Once this takes place, a DTC will set, the radio will not respond to any button presses and become inoperative. The two scenarios able to cause this condition are:

No, the radio won't tell you. If you are putting in another stock radio from an original vehicle it could be difficult as the VIN# of the vehicle usually lets the car manufacturer find the code. See if you can find a serial number on the unit somewhere and call the maker of the unit, they will have the listed pin code

Once you have the model# and serial # both off the back of the radio you need to car your local honda dealer and ask the parts department for the security code for the radio.
and then write it down in the owners manual for the next time or next owner
