The reason I ask is : when faced with your problem here in the united states,, technicians are required to go to a Honda dealership with the vin Info and current registration on the vehicle and request the radio code after obtaining the radio serial number off the side of the radio which is revealed when the radio is removed from the dash. I dont know of any work arounds , They do this to prevent radio thefts and car thefts in this country.
