How do I reset the radio code if the error code is: E

Bob Abbott

Asked by May 24, 2016 at 11:37 PM about the 2011 Honda CR-V SE AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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.
