Only the dealership can do it. I think it's the most annoying safety feature there is. I'd rather it just got stolen. The dealership has to reset the code and give you a new one.

u have to read through the owners manual and take the battery terminals off and the reattach after 20 or so minutes then replace and then turn the car on and put the code in again.

There is a code in the owners manual and it comes on a card the size of a credit card. It is a code that can only be used 5 times and then it automatically needs a new one. if you haven't used it more than 5 times then just enter in the code and it will unlock. If not, then take it to the dealership to get a new code.

Like the people before me said, its just a code. If you bought it used, there might be a code written on a sticker somewhere in the glove compartment. I have an S2000 and thats where mine was. My car gives you 9 tries to enter the right code before it locks up, at that point you have to disconnect the battery terminals for 60 seconds and try again. I didnt know you needed a new one after 5 times of use, but maybe its different in newer Hondas.

If you've lost the card, you can get the serial number of the radio by turning the radio off, then hold preset buttons 1 and 6 then turn the radio on, it will say UXXXX LXXXX upper and lower, and 4 numbers give these to the dealership and they'll give you your code.

Turn car on. Turn radio off. Press # 1 and 9 (not 6, as in above answer). Turn power on and serial number of device should come up.

Don't know the code

4 people found this helpful.

Yep ... when error msg and audio locked ... remove poss battery terminal , reconnect , start motor enter code : radio works 07 civic, : code usually 5 digit on sticker somewhere in car box or manual ?

Note:. Holding numbered buttons and such will not work on Honda's older than 2000. You'll need to pull the radio and get serial number. Believe me, Honda didn't make it easy either! My '94 Del Sol has little to no room for maneuvering and pulling dash parts and screws. All to find that the serial number doesn't match the VIN on file. Really???!!!! A huuuuge hassle to be able to use an obsolete cassette player? Gimme a break! Honda can suck it!
