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 radio code

The radio code came with the manual packet on a card - five digits. If you have lost the packet, I heard that you can get it from a Honda dealer, or try the code systematically started with 00000, 00001 etc.

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
    • 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.

Hi i lost my radio code for honda crv lx 2003 ,pls help me out.

Sorry no easy fix, 2 choices, 1 remove radio and take to car radio specialist, they can recode to a new one. Or contact your local Honda Main dealer, give them your chassis No etc, and if it's the original radio they should be able to scource the code from the manufacture, Cheers

I could not operate my tape and cd tape due to code error

Honda outlines it here:

You can retrieve your 5-digit code if you have your VIN (look for the plate at bottom of windshield on drivers side, looking from the outside), your phone number (the one Honda has on file, gathered when you bought it from the dealer) and the radio serial number.

They give you instructions on getting the radio serial number from the radio display which did work. Turn on ignition, have radio off and while simultaneously holding the 1 and 6 radio buttons push the "on" knob. Two code will flash... a U code and a L code, each followed by 4 numbers. Those 8 numbers (without the U and L form the radio serial number

I need to retrieve the Radio serial number from the top of the radio so I get the Anti Theft code. Can anyone tell me how to remove the radio from the dash of a 2001 Honda CRV?

IF you contact a Honda dealer and give them the VIN, they will be able to give you the code. They may ask you to come in and show them the title to prove it's really your car.
