Hi,

Try this code 16411 followed by the universal codes 23514 and 25134 but only try them after reseting the player.
You usually have about 3 attempts to enter the correct radio code. Any attempts after that will not be accepted.

Disconnect and reconnect your battery after 60 sec to reset your radio again and reenter the code. If it continues to fail, contact the Honda dealership and see if they can retrieve the code for you. They will do the work for upto $75

If you're the original owner of the vehicle they will attempt to ask you some personal questions they may have on file to confirm you're the owner.

here might be a code on a sticker in the original owners manual or in the glove box.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution

    If you have this problem with an Honda radio, it means the anti theft
    lock had been activated.
    23514 and 25134 are universal unlock code for the radio, if they do not work you need to contact back honda or to find the original code.
    To unlock the radio you need to insert the original 5
    digit radio serial number. This usually it is in the book, or on a
    sticker in the glovebox. If it is not there, or you lost the book, then
    you will need to pull out the whole car stereo to get the number, as
    The number is also usually printed one a sticher at the back or side of the stereo.

My 2000 430E Audio suddenly came up with CODE I tried to enter numbers and it won't remove the CODE. I purchased the car second hand and they did not include the code sheet for the radio. Any suggestions...


Hi Gal in PA...

The word CODE is displayed if the radio is removed or if the battery is disconnected. You'll need to do one of the following to get the radio code:
1. Call or go to your local MB dealership. They may or may not provide this to you free of charge.
2. Email MB USA customer assistance. (I found a post online where someone did this and had success)
http://www.mbusa.com/mercedes/#/contactusOverview/

Either way, you'll need your VIN.

I'm surprised your catalytic converter needs to be replaced with so few miles. If your dealer is telling you this, I suggest a second opinion. Or, post a new question in the car section of fixya.com.

Good luck!

My car radio asks for the code every time i use it. once the engine is running i can turn the radio on/off without putting in the code. Once the engine has been turned off i need to re-enter the code Can...


Check your car battery (either at a service station or by checking it's voltage if you have a voltmeter). The radio's anti-theft is triggering. This triggers when the battery has been disconnected; but if the voltage goes down (likely when you start your car), the radio may trigger the power disconnected alarm.

I had a new battery put in now the radio comes on and COD is displayed. HELP I need my music


Hi,
I'm assuming we are talking about a car receiver, and you just had the battery changed in the car. Changing the battery triggers an anti-theft feature in the radio, as if it had been taken out of the car and was trying to be used someplace else.
If it is a factory radio, you will have to go by a dealership to get the code. I drive an older, beat-up BMW, and the one time I needed a radio code for it, I was required to bring the car in physically. One, to make sure a dealership hadn't swapped radios somewhere along the line, and Two, to make sure I wasn't the thief trying to get the radio I had just stolen to work! :)
If this is an after-market car radio, there should be a code in the paperwork that came with it.

Had dead battery. Now radio says I need a code to unlock it.


What type of radio is this? If it is aftermarket, then typically Eclipse and Kenwood are the only units that utilize radio codes. If it is a factory radio (Honda, Acura, Audi, VW typically), then you will need the code which is 4 or 5 digits long and located in your owners manual or vehicle documentation on a small card the size of a credit card. If this is unavailable, then you will need to visit a local stereo shop, have your radio removed and re-installed, and your serial number written down. Take your radio's serial number to any dealer for your car manufacturer, and they will provide you with the unlock code. Hope this helps.

How can I reprogram Nissan pulsar car radio a battery change which has deleted memory? panel shows error message only ERR.


You will need to turn the ignition on (do not start the car) turn on the radio and leave it on for anywhere between 1 - 3hrs untill it prompts you for a code.

There is a internal timer which adds time depending on how many times the code is entered wrongly.

Do not start the car, or turn off the ignition or radio during the 1 - 3 hr period.

Hope this helps.

Thank you

Hi there, there is no easy fix for this. First, check in the owners manual for the car. It is often written down in there. If not...you will need to go to a Honda dealership with the VIN of your Accord and they can look up a database and give you the code. They may charge you for this, but it will be a minimum charge only, and certainly cheaper than a new radio. Good luck
