I can’t type in my radio code

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

Yes a new battery was put in. I know the radio code but the radio won’t let me input that code. It just says code error e

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

2009 Accord

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

I tried locating the back up fuse to pull it and reset it hoping the radio would reset so I can input the code

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

You have to pull the negative battery cable back off for 15 minutes for the radio to reset so you can insert the code.

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!!!!
