How do I reset the radio code if the error code is: E
Battery was dead due to headlights left on all night. Tried to reset several times with good 5 digit # but currently the display shows: CODE ERROR E
Time read out but time is wrong
Do I disconnect/reconnect the battery and start over? How long disconnect.
(One forum says this will bring back ERROR CODE 1. Is this necessary? Another says if I use ten incorrect error code entries radio will be toast.)
If you enter the wrong code too many times, it will lock you out permanently. Disconnect the battery for a few minutes to reset the lock out, then try the code again. Make sure you're using the code in the owner's manual.
I also did this, after failed attempts at other methods..and it worked. Disconnected battery completely for 10 minutes, the Error E code was gone, and I could enter the code for my radio. Still, though, this is ridiculous for a factory 6 CD changer stereo. Who is going to steal THAT?
i did just that, it works thanks
It worked for me too! I have a 2009 Honda CRV. I too had Error Code E and it was locked. I disconnected battery for more than 10 minutes...doing chores around the house. After 30 minutes past I reconnected the battery. ENTER CODE was now back on, like you described. But I was DUMB...i accidently entered the wrong code....I wasn't sure what do do again. I pressed some number reset buttons on the panel and I got it back to say ENTER CODE. Wheewww.....so I reentered my factory code carefully...AND IT WORK!!! THANK YOU ALL!! I also got to reset my clock finally. Now it is working. The trick is disconnecting battery for more about 10 minutes....
What is the code
This is so simple. I'm confused why Honda doesn't suggest this solution. They should publish the error "E" problem so that dummies can find it. They do say that if the fuse to the radio is blown then you will get an error code. Good luck ...
