You can call the dealer to get the code for your radio, you need your vin Number and you may have to go to the dealer with Id to prove you are the owner, we don't give out the informaton here because we have no way to verify that you are the owner of the radio. This is to protect you and others from getting thier radio stolen.

I discconect the batery and the radio doesnt work

You should have a card that came with the car with a code to enter into the radio to reprogram it, the owner's manual will explain how to enter the code. The radio has an antitheft feature in case it's stolen so it won't work without the code. You can go to the manufacturers web site to retrieve the code if you don't have it or you can pay a dealer for the code but be sure to write it down for future reverence.

Honda oddyee 2002 we took the batery out to replaced it and the radio willnt work, i dont find the code for the radio.

If you open the glove box, on the outside of it facing the drivers seat there should be a code there. If not, the only code they offered was a small card that had 3 stickers on it that came with the manual. Those three stickers were suppose to be placed in the appropriate spots. If the original owner did this, then the code should be there on the side of the glove box. Thanks.

I found the digit number now i need the 5 digit code to unlock it please! on 2002 honda civic si

You're talking about the radio, right? Look in your owners manual, sometimes the previous owner wrote it down-also, look in the glove box, for a sticker-I once found it on a sticker ON THE RADIO when I removed it.

lots of good information here:

Code for radio for honda civic 2003

The only way to get the radio code is from your Honda dealer. THis is an anti-theft issue, and you must have your VIN number to get the code. Often it is written down in the cover of your owner's manual too!

Had dead battery in 2002 honda civic got jump now word CODE in radio display

try disconecting the positive terminal of the batery for sevral minets (5-10) this will reset the brain box memory for the stero aswell as for the car it self.

what caused the batery to go dead in the first place?
things that i can think of :
1) left headlights on over night
2) bad altenator not charging batery
3) battery is old and not taking a charge anymore
4) new stero installed incorectly and drainging the batery
have you resently installed a new stero or amplifyer?
is the turn key igntion system hooked into the amp/stero antena lead so that thy are shut of when the ignition is?
of note: new streo >theres a blue wire marked ant that goes to the amplifyer if not there you need to find the orange accsesory wire coming from the turn key igntion>check for power when ignition is in the on & off states could be yellow in some cars but is usaly orange if this wire has on and of state controled by the turn key igntion this would be the wire to tap into for the amplyfire and the radio main power
check your radio's instaltion guide for code errors
its posible that when hooking up the jump it was done incorectly and blew up the radio
ie postive and negative where fliped
hope this helped :)

First a warning- STAY AWAY from the website service called "radio-codes dot com." They have no security measures in place to know if the unit is stolen or not. So don't pay them and encourage such practices. besides, they're just going to do what you can do yourself for free, and in a more ethical manner for all.
Okay, that said, your code may in fact be found somewhere on the car. It will be five digits: Try for a small sticker in the glovebox or on the outer side of the glovebox. Maybe even try looking for it under the ashtray. Up under the trunk space somewhere. If it can't be found, the 8-digit radio serial number may be, and you will need that to get the code. However, you can get the serial number electronically on almost all models except '03-'07 Accords w/navigation in six, or six and 1/2 steps...
STEP ONE: get a pen and paper handy, or a friend with a photographic memory.
STEP TWO: turn on ignition
STEP THREE: turn on audio unit and check if you see "COdE" in display-- if not, pull the backup fuse or battery cables again for 1 minute or longer and until you do).
STEP FOUR: turn off audio unit.
STEP FIVE: press and hold the preset buttons "1" and "6" simulatneously, then turn on the audio unit. The display will toggle back and forth between two screens-- the first showing the letter U followed by four numbers (WRITE THESE DOWN!) and the second display showing a letter L followed by four numbers (yep, you guessed it WRITE THESE DOWN NEXT!)
Forget about the U and the L. The eight numbers -big or small in size- make up your serial number (NOT YOUR UNLOCK CODE).
STEP SIX: If the car is registered with Honda USA, you can simply go to the website to get the radio unlock code for free. (they will tell you the info that you will need to prove you're not the theif who simply stole your radio (ie: the serial number you just retrieved, the VIN, and probably your name and the address the car would be registered with them under).
STEP SIX AND A HALF: If you don't have luck there, proof of ownership, the VIN, and the unit's serial number should be all you need to get it from a dealer. They might charge 25 bucks, or they might not if you seem like or act like a regular.
Hope this helps. My first solution. But it worked 100% for myself.
