How do reset a Honda Accord radio that says Error E?
I discovered a very easy and FREE way to fix your radio. Make sure your radio is OFF. Hold down the preset buttons 1 and 6 at the same time. Turn the radio on and your SERIAL NUMBER will appear. 4 numbers first and then 4 more. Write them down (obviously) then call (800) 999-1009. Make sure you have your VIN number handy because they will ask for it. They will ask for your name and approx. milage, and your radio's serial number. They will then give you your radio unlock code--WRITE IT DOWN!
IF you have the VIN#, and are registered with Honda, you can go to their website https://radio-navicode.honda.com/. You will need to enter your VIN#, registered phone number and zip code as well as your radio/nav serial number (retrieval process detailed above). The site walks you through the inputs and if successful, then spits either your radio code or nav code.
If you do not have the code it is very easy to get and it is free. Simply go to the Honda Owners Link which I will post in a link, and sign up. After you register your Honda with the VIN number you can get the radio code for free. That is assuming you still have the OEM radio installed in your Honda. Click the link.
I assume you meant radio error code. -be careful- ... the dealer you got the Honda from will have a code you need to type into the stereo to unlock it. I believe you get six attempts?? .. entering in enough incorrect codes your stereo will litterally melt/self-destruct itself. Get this code from the dealer and store it in a safe place. Anytime you change your battery or the stereo gets disconnected you will need…
call your orig dealer and ask for the radio code if you dont have it i think the radio gives you 2 or 3 attemtps to input the radio code, if you dont get it right it will lock you out....if that happens, unhook car's battery and reconnect ...when you turn on the radio, you will then be prompted to enter the radio code. hope this helps
