I hope i can help with your problem. this is the one thing i hate about honda vehicles. If this number is ***** it can be quite a hassle to find it. I once had to remove a radio to find serial number off of the back to call honda, who then had to call someone else to retireve the code.

But I do know that the radio code is now printed on a white sticker that should be in or behind the glove box. It should be a 5 or 6 digit code only consisting of number 1-6.

I hope this helps,


If I was helpful, please leave feedback accordingly, Thank you

Was the radio code found within the glove box? Or do you still need help trying to retrieve it?

Let me know if I can be of further assistance
