Need code for radio

Asked by Feb 01, 2015 at 07:00 PM about the 2005 Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We are expats living in Panama and bought a used 2005 CR-V from a dealer. We have no idea who the original owner is. I tried to put the VIN and the radio serial # into the Honda website to get the code. It said I have the wrong VIN #, but I got it directly off the vehicle. I put in a zip code that would be in the US, because they don't have zip codes here. Could you help me get the radio code?  Thank you.
VIN# JHLRD68405C200888
Radio Serial # 15500239

5 Answers Try that with your VIN and serial number (if you haven't already.) But I can tell you VIN/s don't have letter O or Q, or letter I, to avoid confusion between zero, and number 1...since 1980. so it may have came back invalid if you put in letter O instead of number 0 , zero

PS I tried but they want phone numbers e,mail..other stuff that is personal to you

Not that I would have gotten anywhere, I plugged that VIN in to 3 VIN check sites and all came back invalid. Look on registration and insurance and see id everything jives

Thank you for trying to check the VIN. This car is in Panama (like I explained in the main question) and the number that is on the registration and insurance is the one I gave. Now, on the paperwork it is not called the VIN #, it is called the Chasis # in Spanish. It also has a Motor # K24A14910558. Is there some other place to look for the "VIN" number if one of these aren't it?

Well, we got our answer to finding the radio code!! We took the vehicle to the Honda dealer in David, Panama and they looked up the Chasis/VIN number. The computer gave them the code. The technician came out to the car and pulled the ash tray out and flipped it over. YEP!!! The radio code was on a sticker on the bottom of the ash tray - who knew?! So, if you can't find the radio code on the glove compartment, try the ash tray!
