Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed the battery on my 2002 Accord EX.  After I was done, the stereo/CD changer would not work and the anti theft light continued to blink.  The window of the stereo read "Err"  I pressed a button and the the screen said CODE.  Does anyone know the code or what is wrong?

You'll need to take your VIN number and proof of ownership (registration card, etc.) to a Honda dealer, who will be able to give you the anti-theft code to your radio. The radio locks out when it loses electrical power from the battery because it is assumed that it is being stolen, and this way the person stealing it can't use it without the code.

The CODE came with your car on a small "credit card" looking piece of paper. It is the security code (5 digits) you need to enter with the CD number (1-6) buttons. This code was developed to let thieves know that if they steal your radio / CD it will be useless unless they can input the CODE. The anti theft light always blinks so that is a normal condition.

It's a five digit code that may be inside your glove box(a sticker) or if you have the 2002 Warranty Information booklet, there may be an Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card with a 5 digit code number, and a Serial number underneath it. It's the size of a credit card which was stapled to the inside of my booklet.

Look in your glove box and the number above the longer number with letters is the code. Punch it in and if it's your cars factory radio it will turn it back on.
