there should be a code that you can get from the dealer but they will require the VIN number and the serial number of the radio. Before you do that try to find the code on your car. Common places where the code is found are the glove box. the bottom of the ash tray, the door jamb.

No the maintenance light comes on at a set mileage interval to remind you that your vehicle will be do for oil or some other scheduled maintenance. Low brakes will not trigger the light. If there is a serious problem with the braking system it will trigger the red brake light on the dash.

Great news, you can program a 1999 Honda Accord Key Fob yourself. Simply follow these instructions:

Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle and read the instructions prior to programming.
Entering programming mode will erase all previously programmed remotes for this vehicle. You must have all remotes available for programming including working ones.
  • Enter vehicle and close all doors
  • Each of the following steps must be completed within five seconds of completing the previous step. If you take longer than five seconds or make a mistake, you must start the entire procedure over.
  • Insert the key into the ignition, hold one remote in your left hand with additional remotes close by. We recommend taking remotes off the key ring to perform the procedure. When the instructions say to press the LOCK button, you should press the LOCK button on the remote for approximately one second then release it.
Perform each of the next three steps in order, then repeat all three steps two more times for a total of three times each.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position, marked II.
  2. Press the LOCK button on the remote.
  3. Turn the ignition to the OFF position, marked I. (Do steps 1-3 three times)
Next, turn the ignition switch to ON position, marked II.
4. Using the same remote, press the LOCK button again. The door locks should cycle indicating the vehicle has ENTERED programming mode.
5. Using the same remote, press the LOCK button again. The door locks should cycle indicating the vehicle has PROGRAMMED that remote.
If you have other remotes to program then repeat step 5 with each additional remote one after another. Step 5 must be completed within ten seconds for each additional remote. You may program up to three remotes.
6. Turn the ignition to OFF. Test all remotes.
If your remote has a trunk button you will need to hold that button down for several seconds for that function to operate.

FREE and EASY methods to get your Honda radio UNLOCK CODE. (Dealerships usually charge)

Assuming you don't have the Anti-Theft Code and Serial Number that is found on the credit card sized Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card that comes with the vehicle at the time of purchase and is usually found in the glove compartment....

You have FREE options to retrieve that code by phone or on the internet BUT, the RADIO SERIAL NUMBER is REQUIRED (no matter what). (see bottom about removing ERROR E3)

***IF your Honda was made BEFORE 2001 the serial number MAY not be accessible without removing the radio from the vehicle.***

* TO GET THE SERIAL NUMBER (so that you can get the unlock code)

1. Get something to write with and on (you'll need it to write down the serial number)
2. Put the ingnition key in and turn it until your able to turn your radio on (accessories position).
3. Then turn your radio OFF by it's knob/button (but leave the ingition key in place).
4. Hold down the preset buttons 1 and 6 at the same time.
5. Turn the radio on while pressing down both the 1 and 6 buttons.(***IF your Honda doesn't have preset buttons on the radio then hold down the top part of the 'Seek/Skip' button AND the top part of the 'Change Disk' button instead.*** )
6. Write down the 4 numbers you see first and then 4 more that display. These eight numbers are the SERIAL NUMBER. This is NOT your CODE.
7. Make sure your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is handy to get the unlock code. (can be found on your insurance card, driver's side door jam, small plate on dashboard by registration and inspection stickers, etc)

* TO GET THE UNLOCK CODE (using the radio Serial Number and VIN)

---Internet option:

1. Go to https://radio-navicode.honda.com/ (YES, it's run BY HONDA and IT'S FREE)
2. Follow on screen instructions (Serial Number and VIN required)
3. Type in the 5 digit code into your radio. This will unlock the radio and return it to a functional state.


---Telephone option:

1. Call American Honda Customer Relations (800) 999-1009
2. When the automated message starts 'Press 3' for 'Radio and Navigation Codes'.
3. Tell the Customer Service Agent you need your radio code. (They will ask for your name, your radio's serial number, VIN, etc)
4. When they give you your radio unlock code--WRITE IT DOWN and KEEP IT SAFE!
5. Type in the 5 digit code into your radio. This will unlock the radio and return it to a functional state.


****If you entered too many wrong codes and got an ERROR E3 message displaying you'll need to do an additional step for even the correct unlock code to work.****

Disconnect your negative battery terminal (or pull the radio fuse out if that's easier for you) for 30 seconds then reconnect it and then the radio will say "CODE" again and you can put in your correct unlock code.

So what happened to begin with?

If the power from your battery to the Honda radio is interrupted the Anti-Theft feature kicks in, the radio is rendered inoperable and the screen reads 'CODE'. You must enter in the Anti-Theft Radio Unlock Code (usually 5 digits) to make it operational again. You know that much by now.

Means that it is requesting the code (anti theft) to reactivate the radio. In all probability, the vehicle battery was disconnected and the anti theft tripped.

1999 Honda... | Answered on May 24, 2018

Your battery must have gone dead or you replaced it.
Your car’s audio system will disable itself if it is disconnected from electrical power for any reason. To make it work again, you must enter a specific five-digit code in the Preset buttons. Because there are hundreds of number combinations possible from five digits, making the system work without knowing the exact code is nearly impossible.
You should have received a card with your manual(if you have one) that lists your audio system’s code number and serial number. If you don't have the card, you can get the code number from your Honda dealer, but to do this, you will need the system’s serial number, or maybe the accord's vin number.
If your car’s battery is disconnected or goes dead, or the radio fuse is removed, the audio system will disable itself. If this happens, you will see ‘‘Code’’ in the frequency display the next time you turn on the system. Use the Preset buttons to enter the five-digit code. If it is entered correctly, the radio will start playing.
Hope this is helpful.

Return to the dealership for warranty if it failed in a day and half, that means they haven't repaired it for the price you paid.

Did you check and make sure the cable hasn't just popped of and if is has it is really easy to put back on just take a look under the dash where the handle is.

1999 Honda... | Answered on Nov 19, 2017

sounds like you need a dealer to assist you with this some vehicles when the battery is removed the computer needs to relearn all functions .

So all of your dashboard lights come on, you can hear the fuel pump prime itself, but yet the engine doesn't start? Have your starter tested, to see if it is good. If you can get the starter off, you can bring it into a Autozone, a Napa, or any other local auto parts stores in your area; and they can hook it up to a test machine. This will tell you whether your starter is the problem or not.

Sounds like the ignition switch going bad.

1999 Honda... | Answered on Jul 28, 2017

it could be more a relay problem, do you have the code as the code helps better different code reads come up with a generic code and code read will say what the code is but this can differ from what the code actually means, like Code 41 to test the sensor, do this. you will need a meter, Turn ignition off. Disconnect 4-wire connector from O2 sensor. Measure resistance between connector terminals "A" and "B" on O2 sensor. See Fig. 9 . If resistance is 15-20 ohms, go to next step. If resistance is not 15-20 ohms, replace O2 sensor. then this Check for continuity from each terminal of O2 sensor to ground. If continuity exists, replace O2 sensor. If continuity did not exist, check for continuity between O2 sensor terminal "A" and terminals "C" and "D" individually. See Fig. 9 . If continuity does not exist, go to next step. If continuity did exist, replace O2 sensor.
192750_ho2s90accord_1-02v24stlnrwd2v1pzef3romw-4-0.jpg there is a heater built into the sensor this heats the sensor to work more efficiently. if the heater is damaged this will not work properly, when the exhaust is up to temp it turns it off but still reads the heater. sensor reading is constant. if this fails the ecu log this as a fault and in USA it cuts the engine out. as there is a fault with reading the sensor. a weak or warong relay will also give a false problem but this is because the connections are not good, sometimes you can repair the relay if its not connecting properly, as the copper heats up and its arcing in the switch it will stop connecting until it has cooled down. you can clean the connections on thew switch inside the relay and adjust the copper arm so its a better connection when the relay is in use. O2 sensor this is not the case it could be damaged and need replacing, also if the weather has been wet and humid there could be a leak in the connector to the main wiring this can be a bad seal on the plug, check this for water and also check the connections inside as if they white this means water has gotten in there clean them with emery cloth to clean them back up to a shine and make a good connection. the relay has 2 plastic tabs that you use to open the relay up, they are in the bottom of the plastic use a flat blade or driver to prise it open. hope this helps.

get a locksmith to cut keys to suit the existing lock barrel then program the keys to suit the vehicle
it is a difficult job to replace the switch so get a workshop manual if you want to do it yourself

1999 Honda... | Answered on Jul 03, 2017

A bad O2 sensor would not prevent it from starting. The computer ignores the O2 sensor until the engine warms up. If the fuel pressure is good, check the engine coolant temp sensor. If that's bad, the computer may think the engine is warmer/colder than it really is and will give the wrong air/fuel mixture.
