Radio Code???? Ugh

5 posts in this topic

I have a 97 honda accord ex. I recently unhooked my car battery to clean off all the grime on the posts. Afterwards I come to find that my radio no longer works and it is asking me for a code! What a joke. The manual didn't come with the car when I bought it used a couple of years ago. Does anyone know of a way that I can fix this without bringing it to the dealer?

You can enter the code yourself but you will either have to go to the dealer with proof of ownership to get the code or you can go to hondas HSOforum, click the owners link, and you'll see a get your radio code link. You will still have to varify you are the owner but might be worth a shot.

Thanks airjer. Some people have told me that the dealer will charge for the code! What a joke. I just looked online and I guess I need to get the barcode number off the side of the radio so I guess I will need to pull it out to do that.

The code was initiated to deter theft of radios.

If you've had work done on the car, you could check with the shop guys as they likely unhooked the battery to do any kind of electrical/ignition repair.

I'm pretty sure it was a self inflicted wound this time. whistle

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
