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....
