For a factory fitted unit, remove the system and on the back is a label with the serial number. You need to post the make model and serial to see if a free code is available. The serial number may begin with an "M" followed by 6 numbers. If a "V" followed by 6 numbers then that will be a dealer only item.
Hope that helps

I have a 1997 acrua battery died now radio is asking for a code

when power is diconnected from your car, the radio will ask for a code. this is part of the anti theft system of your car. inside your owners manuel case, there should be a slip with the code on it.( hope its there) input this into your radio. if its not allowing you, disconnect the battery, and reconnect. this should allow you to input the code sequence.

Look through the paper work you received when you purchased the vehicle. There should be a 5-digit code on a plastic card labeled "Anti-theft radio code". Put this code into the display, and it should take it and work.

I just got my Honda Pilot 2008 out of the garage after a small coalition and now the radio doesn't work. I keep getting the message "enter code" and I have no idea which the code is. Where can I find it?

The code should have come with your manual. Look in the paperwork that came with the car. If you don't have it, ask your dealer for the code.

I changed my battery in my 2006 Acura CSX and now the Radio is asking for a Radio Code. I have the radios serial number, but I now need the code.

You will need to contact the Acura dealership to get the code. Code may be located in the paperwork you got when you purchased it new...if you have it.

Radio locked after disconnecting battery

In your manuel there is instruction to unlocking the radio and you may have the code's written in the back. If it does ask for a code try 0000 and if that does not work try logging on to
They can give you the instruction and codes you need to reset your radio. If you have a good relationship with the dealer they may be able to help you out too since they are always disconnecting and changing batteries.
Good luck and hope this helps.

How to reset the check engine light on a 2002 toyota highlander. it happens everytime they disconnect the scensor tube to get to the air filter. thanks, susan

That means that the sensor must be replaced.

You can turn temporarily off the light by disconnecting battery for five minutes, but it will probably come back.

To fix it completely, take it to a garage and have the problem fixed.

Note: when you unplug battery you may be asked car radio security code afterward.
