Customer Question
HOW TO ENTER THE...

HOW TO ENTER THE SECURITY CODE MY HONDA PILOT. THE SECURITY CODE HAS A 9 IN IT AND THE RADIO DOES NOT HAVE A NINE ON IT.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the battery been recently disconnected? Have you checked the manual or the glove box for the radio code?

THE BATTERY WAS DISCONNECTED. i HAVE THE CODE THAT CAME WITH THE CAR, BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO ENTER IT BECAUSE THE NUMBER HAS A NINE AND THE RADIO DOES NOT HAVE A NINE BUTTON.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Pilot?

2009

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pilot yourself? What have you tried so far?

Had the battery changed out, I have the number that came with the car but it has a nine in it and the radio does not have a nine button.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I just don't know what I am doing and just need help.

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!!!!
