Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code. You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership. Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

Radio and console does not work after replacing battery

Radio may need code, radio should display "code, loc, ..." IF no power at all, check all fuses. Sometimes spark from changing battery can blow radio fuses easily.

Chaging battery on 2003 Accord

YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY NEED TO KNOW THE RADIO CODE TO OPERATE RADIO AFTER YOU CHANGE BATTERY. Check your owners manual for code may be on a sticker on the radio page on in the manual. If its not there for a fee it can be retrieved by the dealer but it must be the original radio for that car. Good Luck

your car is setup with an anti-thief system. You need the radio code that is inside your radio. Check your owner manual for the 4 digit number. If not in there then you need to take it into the dealer to unlock it.
