Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid Just Answer.

I'd like you to perform the cable reset procedure. This typically restores faulty electronic components on the vehicle when this sort of thing happens. It has solved many issues over the years. Here it is:

1). Disconnect both battery cables from the battery (positive first then negative).

2). Connect both cables together with a jumper wire of some sort. DO NOT connect the battery posts together, only the cables.

3). Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and leave it for 10 minutes.

4). Once that time has passed turn the ignition switch back off, and then reconnect both cables (positive first and then negative).

5). Turn the ignition switch ON and see if you can enter the code.

If that doesn't work let me know.

You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there won't be additional charges for posting questions to this thread after you rate so we can keep chatting. Thanks

Do you need more specific instruction?

Okay I will do my best. Typically customers have at least a general knowledge of car repair so if you feel I need to be a bit more descriptive just let me know. And again, I do not get compensated from Just Answer until you rate me positively so I would appreciate that. Before doing the cable reset procedure that I explained I'd like you to try just disconnecting the battery first. Disconnect both battery cables from the battery and leave it disconnected for 10 minutes. Unhook the positive cable first. This is the cable that has the red covering over it. After the positive, disconnect the negative cable. After 10 minutes reconnect the positive cable first, and then the negative cable. If I need to be more descriptive let me know and I will elaborate on whatever you need. See if that will allow you to be able to enter the radio code.

Remember to rate positively. Thanks

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
