Try to first look inside your glove box on the sides of the glove box there may be a white sticker with either one or two rows of numbers. the sticker will be about 1" long and .5" high. If there are two rows of numbers the top row will be a 5 digit number and that is your radio anti-theft code. If there is only one row of numbers and they are about 9 or 10 letters and numbers that is the serial number for the radio. If you have the serial number you can call your honda dealer and they can look up the radio code from the serial number.
if the tag isn't inside the glove box, take out the ashtray and check behind it to see if its glued on there. If not there, check under the trunk lid. The dealers usually put the stickers in on of those places.
if there is no sticker, try to do this: with the ignition key "ON" and the radio OFF, hold in the station buttons numbered 1 and 6 at the same time. then as you're holdign the buttons in, turn the radio ON. if this works, you see a series letters and numbers. the first will start with the letter U and then 4 numbers followed by the letter L and four numbers. If this comes up, write them down and call your honda dealer and give them the numbers starting with the U numbers then the L numbers. That is the serial number for the radio. This only works on some models so I can't guaranty it will work on yours.
lastly, if all else fails, you can remove the radio and get the serial number off of the back of the radio. Its not hard to pull the radio out.
each radio has its own anti-theft code. With the serial number of the unit any honda dealer can look up the reactivation code
hope that helps
