Your vehicle is too old for the 1 and 6 to work. If you can not read the serial number you will need to remove the radio and get the number off the label on it.

I thought I could give you my make, model and vin number and you could give me the code. I read online that I could remove my radio but I have tried and it does not come out.
Mechanic for Honda: Steve, Honda Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Honda never did install radios by VIN number. The VIN will not help.

The radios can be hard to remove if you do not have experience with them.

What model Honda do you have?

It's a 2000 Honda Accord

Those are tough to remove. Would you like for me to try and get you some instructions on how to remove it?

I did not realize that you would not be able to get the code like in a previous answer posted online. I feel that should not be a charge for a non-answer. I thought that the $23 would only be charged if I was satisfied by the answer and I am not. I already tried as that is on the Honda website it self and it did not work for me so I do not feel like I should have been charged. I do not understand this service. It was presented that it was a cheaper alternative than going to the dealership for an answer. Can you please tell me the process of getting a refund.

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

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

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!!!!
