What must be done to ENTER CODE after battery is changed?

Asked by Sep 07, 2015 at 08:12 PM about the 2011 Honda CR-V EX-L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 CRV that had the battery changed. The radio/cd player is not
operational and reads "ENTER CODE". I cannot find any reference to this in
the owner's manual.

Turn your ignition off to begin retrieving your radio code. Press and hold the "1" and "6" preset buttons on your radio. Turn your ignition on. Write down the code displayed on your radio. The display will flash with two numbers: one beginning with a "U" and one beginning with a "L." Write down both numbers (beginning with the "U" number), and then disregard the "U" and the "L." This number (eight digits) is your radio serial code. You'll need it to retrieve your radio anti-theft code. Contact Honda to retrieve your radio anti-theft code. You'll need your 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number, found beneath the driver's side of the windshield and your radio serial code. Honda's customer service number is (800) 999-1009. Provide the representative with the information to acquire your radio anti-theft code. You can also retrieve your radio anti-theft code online at https://radio-navicode.Honda.com/ Turn your ignition to "Acc" or "On" to power on your radio. Enter your radio anti-theft code using the preset buttons at the bottom of your radio. For example, if your anti-theft code is "55512," you would press the "5" button three times, then the "1" button, then the "2" button. This will unlock and reset your Honda radio.

I had the same problem and someone told me where to find my code and they were right. Open your glove compartment and there should be a sticker with 2 sets of numbers and the first 5 digit should be your radio code.

I have followed instructions. I have code and serial number but it does not work. I tried 6 times and I am worried the radio will pack up.
