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.
Hey PRESTO!

Please help me to get the code number to unlock the radio for honda crv 2003


    • 1 Look in your owner's manual booklet for your radio anti-theft code. The code is printed on a small card (similar to a credit card) and included with your owner's manual. If you can find the code, skip to Step 5.
      If you cannot find the code, you'll need to retrieve it.
    • 2 Turn your ignition off to begin retrieving your radio code. Press and hold the "1" and "6" preset buttons on your radio. Turn your ignition on.
    • 3 Write down the code displayed on your radio. The display will flash with two numbers: one beginning with a "U" and one beginning with a "L." Write down both numbers (beginning with the "U" number), and then disregard the "U" and the "L."
      This number (eight digits) is your radio serial code. You'll need it to retrieve your radio anti-theft code.
    • 4 Contact Honda to retrieve your radio anti-theft code. You'll need your 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number, found beneath the driver's side of the windshield and your radio serial code. Honda's customer service number is (800) 999-1009. Provide the representative with the information to acquire your radio anti-theft code.
      You can also retrieve your radio anti-theft code online for free at https://radio-navicode.honda.com/
    • 5 Turn your ignition to "Acc" or "On" to power on your radio. Enter your radio anti-theft code using the preset buttons at the bottom of your radio. For example, if your anti-theft code is "55512," you would press the "5" button three times, then the "1" button, then the "2" button. This will unlock and reset your Honda radio.

Check engine light comes on intermittently. Code 14, replaced air idle control valve. Ck engine light still comes on. What the problem?


If you are secure that the repair was done correctly, pull the 7.5 backup fuse (with the car turned off) in the under hood fuse box and wait 10 or 15 seconds before putting it back in. That should clear your engine light. You will have to reset your clock, and any selected radio settings.
If you do not have an anti-theft radio, you could simply disconnect the negative battery terminal for 10 or 15 seconds and that would do the same thing, but if you have an anti-theft radio that would require a code reset, meaning that you would have to have the five digit code.
If the engine light comes back on after the reset, then something has gone wrong with the repair.
Hope this helps.

Need Radio Reset Code


The reset code that you are referring to is also called the 'Anti-theft' code. Check you glove box and look for a card that carry that code.

If you could not find a card in your glove box, you need to pull out the radio and get the serial number on the side of it. Then, contact the manufacturer or the dealer and they are the one who could provide you the code.

This anti-theft is unique with every car radio, so only the manufacturer could provide you the right code that's assigned for the serial number of your radio.

Have a great day!

Error 7 on 2005 Honda CRV Radio


I had the same issue with the radio code error lock on a 2005 CRV. I was unaware of the code procedure and had locked the radio in the "ERROR E" mode. I was able to unlock the radio by pulling the #9 back up fuse located in the fuse box in the engine compartment. This reset the radio to CODE which then allowed me to input the 5 digit number which I had in my glove box along with my owner's manual. I am happy to report I now have a working radio/ CD player.
