Sorry I don't have $26 to pay just paid my last $5 to talk to you. All I need is a code!!
Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

I'm sorry, the phone call pop up is not me. It's an automated thing. I don't need you to call.

I need you to retrieve the serial number from the radio:

  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON.
  2. Turn ON the device and confirm that the display reads COdE. If you don’t see this message, pull the backup fuse (or battery cable) for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
  3. Turn OFF the device.
  4. Press and hold the 1 and 6 radio preset buttons, and turn ON the device.
  5. The display toggles between two screens: U with the first 4 digits of the serial number (U2200 for example,)
  6. And L with the last 4 digits of the serial number (L0055 for example.)
  7. Ignore the U and L and record all 8 digits

Sorry, I was going to warn you about the phone call pop-up but I was typing up the steps for getting the serial number.

Omg!! My husband is driving it and I for got to get the manual out. But is there anyway you can tell me how without it. Or if it makes a difference its a Honda Element Ex
Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

We don't need the manual. We can get the serial number from the radio if it currently says "COdE" on the display.

Once I have the serial number and the Vehicle's complete Vin I can enter that into the Honda unlock code database and they will send me an unlock code.

Ok it said error code 4
Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

In that case you'll need to disconnect the battery for about 1 minute to get the radio to reset.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Could that be because I was just putting in numbers to see if it will work.
Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

Yep. It is just locked out after too many code attempts.

Ok so just I will just use the steps you gave me and thank you for helping me
Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

Once you get that serial number send it to me along with the complete vin and I'll get you that unlock code.

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
