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.
The codes are not the same for all radios. Here are two codes I was given for my 1994 Accord 36344 and 15424 with the latter working. To save headaches in the future, document your radio's model, reference, and serial numbers and all anti-theft codes in the manual and in a separate file (digital or hard copy or both).

Re: Honda Accord Radio code
YOu have to call the dealer. Unless you can get lucky and someone wrote down the code in your owners manual or on the radipo itself. you will probhably hav eto remove the radio to retrieve the serial number off of it in order to obtain the code from honda. The truck here is that if you know any mom+pop auto shop, usually if they call honda for you honda will give them the code for free or cheap.
The Honda Security codes are algorithms so how could every car be the same since all the serial numbers are different? You can call American Honda at 1800-999-1009 or Alpine at 1800TECH101 They'll find you the code.

disconnect the battery, than reconnect. radio should indicate code.. press in the code using the 1-6 radio preset buttons, if correct code , it should function normally, if wrong code it will indicate code on the display, it will only allow 3 or 5 failed attempts than will need battery to be disconnected again.
If you have a multimeter or test light, try to find a wire that still has 12v when the key is off. Connect that wire to the yellow wire of the radio. The yellow wire has to have constant voltage going to it to maintain the memory.
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 assume you checked at the fuse block of the car. If the radio is aftermarket also check if it has has a fuse or maybe 2 fuses at the radio. They might be in fuseholders from the hot wires of the radio.
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
I have a 93 accord ex with the bose amp system. Had a Sony deck put in it. It had the popping and the noises. It was installed at a store and they had to hook the red power wire to the antenna wire to get the sound to come out of the system when playing a CD. I thought that was bogus to have the antenna up all the time so I took it back out and put another quick hookup harness in it and it did the same thing. Will not put out any sound till the red power wire is hooked up to the antenna wire so that it goes up when the key is turned on. Installed the same stereo in a 94 taurus SHO with amp and it worked great. I believe that there is an expensive kit that converts the bose system to hook up a unit so that it doesn't pop click buzz, and have to have the antenna up to play.
