Welcome to Just Answer!
You can check with the owner's manual for a white credit card sized card with the anti-theft radio code on it or check to see if there is sticker in the glove box. If no luck you will have to pull the radio. Here is a link to help you out:
Give that a try. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me again. Thank you.
Then you will need to remove the radio itself. The serial # XXXXX XXXXX the radio unit itself. Here is some instructions to help remove the radio:
You will need to follow for just the stereo removal portion of this. Once you get the serial #, you can use the link from earlier post or contact your local Honda dealer & get the code for free with the serial # XXXXX given. If you have any other questions, please feel free contact me again. Thank you.
You can try to disconnect the battery for approximately 10-15 minutes & try the buttons 1 & 6 like in the very first link I sent you. If it does not work, you have no other choice but to remove some panels to access the radio to get the serial #. If you had a 2001 or newer vehicle, it would not be an issue. Try that & please let me know. Thank you.
You can try inputting your old information & your new information, hopefully one of them will work. If it says required item needed, you will need to put information in there. You can also call the # XXXXX the link during the hours of operation, M-F, closed weekends. If you can get me the serial #, I can have a fellow expert able to get me the code for you.
If you choose to take it to the dealer they may charge you .50-1.00 hours of labor at whatever there labor rate is. I would say approximately $75 +/- $25. Any other questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you.
I finally got got the radio out and tried the Navicode site, but I don't know what phone number and address is on file with Honda, but I do have the serial number. The serial number of the radio is: 98F45305. The model number is XXXXX and the ref. number is XXXXX See if your expert friend can find the code for this. Thanks.
I have sent a request to get the radio code for you. Appreciate your patience. I will let you know, as soon as I can. Thank you.
I got something here, try this 42254. Hopefully that will work for you. Any other questions, please let me know. I would like to thank Jim for the help. Thank you.
Correction. This may be the correct radio code, 26152. Try on of these & can you let me know which is correct, please. Thanks to lorunner for the help. Any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.
The last code is the one for the serial # XXXXX gave me. You may need to disconnect battery for 10-15 minutes & remove the antenna lead if you have not done it. Once done with that, turn the key to ON position, turn radio on, input the code. Once input the code correctly the radio will beep & turn on. You may need to slowly input the #'s on the radio. Any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.
Just curious did you ever get any type of error message when trying to input the code? Please let me know. Thank you.
This is right out of the owner's manual, what to do for you. Here:
Look for page 9 or page 137. Try that & see if that helps, I know, it seems like a lot of work, but it should work, unless the serial # XXXXX gave me was wrong. Try that out & any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.
Try that what I just sent you & let me know the other stuff. Thank you.
Did you get a chance to recheck the radio? If you found any other #'s please let me know. Thank you. Have a great day.
Sounds good, let me know if you need any other help. Thank you.
