2007 Honda CRV won't accept code


Asked by Feb 13, 2016 at 11:20 PM about the Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have to reset my car radio after battery died. Have the code but when trying
to put it in, it beeps before all the numbers are entered & the CODE word
starts blinking. Am I missing a step before entering the code??? Can't seem
to find an answer to this anywhere.

perhaps the code reader needs new batteries....try one of these 16 dollar ones...it will reset the trouble codes for ya~

isconnect the battery for a few min and then reconnect the terminals at that point push and hold radio preset buttons 1 & 6 while holding 1 & 6 push the power button ( don't need to hold) and write down the serial number that shows up on the display. Then you need to call Honda and ask them for the radio code. The radio could have been replaced.
