Customer Question
I can’t work my...

I can’t work my radio because I unplugged my battery and now it says “enter code”

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

Would the code be in my manual?

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

2007 honda fit

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

I haven’t really tried anything but holding the 1 & 6 buttons

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

That’s it

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

You're seeing this because you need to enter the radio's security code. If you don't have record of the code then you'll need to obtain it either from your dealer or a site such as this one or this one. Once you have the security code then you can enter it using the preset buttons and the radio will function again.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

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!!!!
