Honda CRV Radio Code Error

I finally received a code to reset my anti theft code on my radio. I pulled the 10 amp fuses out of the fuse block and then re-insert them (this was suggested online here at FixYa) and the system still reads Code Error in window. What should I try next?

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.

I had Error E code which means I put the wrong code in 10 times. Honda says 2 ways to fix this. In the fuse box under the hood, remove the "Backup" fuse for 1 minute and 10 seconds(or 2 minutes) then replace. If this doesn't work,place key in ignition and turn to the FIRST position. Allow key to remain in this position for ONE HOUR(to be safe, try 1 hour 2 minutes.)
Turn key to second position and the errors should be erased and the CODE will come up. Put your code in and the radio should work.
I still have 45 minutes!

I have a 2009 CR-V EX-L, the battery went dead and I got the "Code Error E" message. I did not know where the reset code was, so I went to the dealer. The guy at the desk found the code in my service book. He tried to re-set and couldn't, then he removed the "backup" fuse for 10 mins and re-installed The Code Error E was still there. I couldnt leave the car so I left. I tried removing the "Backup" fuse, while it was out I checked the radio, still had power, just the door locks didnt work. Finally I disconnected the battery for 10 mins, when I re-connected and turned on the rado, I had the option to enter the code, I did and it worked. Note that the owners manual said after an hour you would be able to re-enter the code if you got the Code Error E message, but that did not happen. Only thing that worked was disconnecting the battery.

You need to put 4 or 5 digits number that can be found in the glove compartment do not touch anything in the radio could lock the radio for 12 to 24 hours simply enter the numbers using the radio buttons and it will be fine don't go to the dealer they will charge you over 200 for one minute fix that you can do it by yourself

If the radio is the one in the CRV when it was assembled, radio code will be on the underside of the fuse block cover under the hood.

21 Aug 2010 I have an 03 Honda S2000 and after a battery changed I managed to put the radio code for my wife's Insight into the S2000 radio instead of the right one - it came up with CODE E. I turned the ignition to the 1st 'notch' and left it for 40 mins. The display then reverted to CODE and I was able to insert the correct code. Simple!

To get rid of code error E, disconnect battery or remove fuse for 5 to 10 mins then enter your radio code. If you disconnect for a too short period of time, it won't work.

I followed the above and every time I put the 5th number in it went back to error. When I put the first 4 numbers in it spelled c.o.d.e
I found that it worked if I:

took out the backup fuse
Put it back in a minute or so later
Entered the first 4 numbers
Turned radio off then on again
Entered the 5th number.

My battery has been disconnected for 6 years. Car goes but radio just says code. I have tried to punch the code in but it just beeps and nothing happens. I have the correct code for the vehicle as hav


YOu have a blown fuse. The OEM radio has an error code and basic power supply that gives you an error response. Check your fuses and make sure that the main fuses and fuses for the radio and console unit are good. If it's an aftermarket unit it may be a bad cmos battery that needs to be replaced.

Hi Can anyone be kind enough and give me a code for blaupunkt 2040 from my peugeot 206? 14 digit code is BP8146x2387842 and the 10 code is 7648146392. Many thanks


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Peugeot service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

How can i retrieve my honda car model NO.CR-V, radio code?


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's radio anti-theft system has a code that is unique to each radio. This code is supplied to you when you buy the car. So the dealer should have this, right?

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)

Honda CRV 2005 asking for radio code


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!

Hi Ed

Please see the following article posted here.

It explains where to find the code on your vehicle. It is on a white sticker "somewhere" in or on your vehicle. This could be as simple as the glovebox door, to the engine compartment to the inside of the center console.

It is a 5 digit code.

Good Luck

Car radio


Found this on another site.

General Motors coded THEFTLOCK® radios have a backup unlocking code that can be accessed by a General Motors dealer or a Delco® radio repair center if the owner programmed security code is not available. Honda, Acura and Audi anti-theft radios are examples that will require radio removal to access the radio serial number that a dealer needs to obtain the factory security code. Sometimes the original dealer for a vehicle may keep records of the radio security code for factory-coded radios.

Sounds like you may have to remove the stereo so you can see the code on the back.

Then I would take it to a local dealer and prove its your vehicle and give them the serial number.

They should be able to decipher it for you.


Best of Luck.
