Hi My name is Jim.. We need to get the radio ser # ***** this is how you do that. Once you have it you can call your local dealer for the code. They can not get it off the vin only the radio code.. On some Honda's it is actually in the glove box on a white sticker.

Here is the procedure

To get the radio code from the Honda dealer you must give them the radio serial number. If you would like I will call the dealer .. if I do the fee will be $32 total.. thank you .. Jim B

To retrieve the serial number:

Turn on the radio, and turn on the ignition switch to the ON position. Verify the radio display indicated CODE.

Turn off the radio and press and hold #1 and #6 radio preset buttons and while holding the buttons turn on the radio. The radio will display a U and 4 digits and then an "L" and 4 digits. The first 4 digits of the serial number are with the "U" the last 4 digits of the serial number are after the "L". For example if it reads "U" 1234 and "L" 4321, the serial number would be 12344321. Call the dealer with that number and they can get the 5 digit radio code for the customer.

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
