Can you look one up online or go to a dealer to get it ?


originally there was a card the size of a business card with the code on it. you probably have to go to the dealer and have them reset it.


i have an 07 accord and i just called the dealer and asked for it. you are going to need the serial number off the radio though. if i remember correctly removing the radio from a 2000 civic is quite the process.

Open your glove compartment and on the left side inside...there could be a sticker with your code... also Utube your question..I have had 5 hondas and utube videos are amazing... Like how to change a cabin filter when the garage wanted to rip me off for 60$..


agree with louise that's where our 95 civics code was, and or may be written on the top of the radio
