How do I figure out the code for the radio?

I just had to replace the battery in my husbands civic that i have been driving and it says to enter a code for the radio. I have no clue what the code is and I don't have the operators manual and he is away with no phone for two more weeks. Does anyone have suggestions? I have tried several different combinations but none are working.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Misty, give this a try:

  1. Hit <enter> to insert another list item, and <enter> twice in a row to end the list. To get subitems, repeat the bullet character once for each level of indent you want (e.g. ##)Turn car to ON II(radio powers up)
  2. Hit <enter> to insert another list item, and <enter> twice in a row to end the list. To get subitems, repeat the bullet character once for each level of indent you want (e.g. ##)Turn radio off
  3. Hit <enter> to insert another list item, and <enter> twice in a row to end the list. To get subitems, repeat the bullet character once for each level of indent you want (e.g. ##)
  4. Hold 1 & 6 buttons on radio
  5. Hit <enter> to insert another list item, and <enter> twice in a row to end the list. To get subitems, repeat the bullet character once for each level of indent you want (e.g. ##)While still holding 1 & 6, turn radio on
  6. Hit <enter> to insert another list item, and <enter> twice in a row to end the list. To get subitems, repeat the bullet character once for each level of indent you want (e.g. ##)Write down the 8digit number that should display

Call your Honda dealer and give them those numbers. Or just follow the directions on here. Hope this helps, good luck.

There’s really 2 ways to do this if you don’t have the unlock code:

1) You can go to a dealer and pay around $75-$300 in “labor”. Or maybe if you’re lucky get someone to do it for free, but they almost always bill out at 30 minutes labor from what I’ve heard from others.

2) Use an independent radio unlocking service. A reputable one that some others have mentioned is https://radiocodevault.com/honda/ They just need your VIN #, and some other information.

Best of luck.

Thank you :) this is the easiest way and this worked perfect for me. I had entered code wrong 5 times before this and was nervous because I did not know how many more times I could enter wrong without getting locked out completely. Thank you again.

Well I had no sticker in the glove box, butI got lucky, I found a owners manual in the glove box and the previous owner had wrote the radio code down there...

You just need the serial number in order to obtain the unlock code for your radio.

Just press and hold the 1&6 buttons at the same time, while turning your radio on.

The serial number should then display. And then type it into the form at http://radiocodevault.com/honda/

You’ll receive the unlock code in your email.

Pretty simple stuff, and avoids a dealership trip.

Don’t make things more complex then they need to be.

Oh and sometimes it will say ERR, or ERR5, ERR7. You’ll just need to disconnect the car battery for 30-45 minutes and then try the serial number trick again, and it should then show the serial number. Then go to the radiocodevault site and enter it.

Don’t keep trying to guess different codes! It can lock it up forever… and then you are really screwed.

Here is what you need to do:

Step 1: Find the VIN# of your car.

Step 2: Follow the instructions on this site and enter your VIN#

Step 3: Receive the unlock code in your email

Enjoy

Turn radio off.

Hold 1&6 button.

While the 1&6 are depressed, hit volume button.

This will show you radio SSN.

Write this number down.

Than visit this site.

https://radio-navicode.honda.com/

Where it says enter code, Try all of the codes this site gives.

The code will display alpha according to the acronym c-o-d-e.

Keep trying the given codes, one of them will work and your radio will turn on.

Don't let Honda Rob u of $400.

holding 1 & 6 and pressing the power button it shows me S/N no code...pls what do i do

Thank you, worked perfect and my radio stations were still on there when I got the five NaviCodes to try!

As the person above said, it's in the glovebox. Mine was on the left hand side, small white sticker about 2" long, the top number (5 digits) is the radio code.

Worked perfectly 2-22-17!

by

This is the best and easiest answer, assuming you have a sticker inside the glove box with the code numbers.
