Look in the glove box and see if there is a sticker with a 5 digit number on it. This number is ***** code for your radio. Some times you have to drop the glove box all the way down and look on the back side of the glove box for this sticker. Let me know if you can not find the sticker and I can help you get the code you need.

Nope there is no code there
Mechanic for Honda: kalamykid, Shop owner/ Tech replied 6 months ago

Then you will have to pull the radio out of the dash so you can get the serial number off of the side of it. In order for you to get a code you will have to have the serial and the vin number. Can you pull the radio out to get the serial number?

No i cant take out the radio its a problem is there any other way
Mechanic for Honda: kalamykid, Shop owner/ Tech replied 6 months ago

Not on this year model radio. You have to have the serial number off of the radio itself to have a code generated.

Ya if i remove it i might as well replace it
Mechanic for Honda: kalamykid, Shop owner/ Tech replied 6 months ago

You do not need a new radio, you just need the code to unlock it. The only problem is you can not get a code with out the serial number off of the radio itself.

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!!!!
