Question about Car Audio & Video
It sounds like the unit has been "locked" which happens when power is cut from the unit for any period of time. This happens all the time actually... You just need to head into any Honda dealership and they will unlock the deck for you, it is a free service they provide.
The reason it does this is it's a security feature. If someone stole the head unit out of the car it would be completely useless to them for they would need to take it to a dealership to get it unlocked, and dealerships only unlock them when they are in the car that they match up to, so they would need to steal the whole car :).
The bad part is the cd player can't tell the difference between being ripped out of the dashboard and simply having the power cut from it.
Hope this makes sense, this is definitely what is going on.
