How do you reset my radio after my battery went dead in a 2000 Honda accord?
Unfortunately without a radio code you will have to pull the stereo out and read the serial number off the back and then call your Honda dealer so they can look up the code. you may need to actually go in and prove ownership of the vehicle first. Good luck, Before pulling the stereo- just take a close look in the owners manual ( if you have it) sometimes you get lucky and the previous owner will have written it down somewhere for you.
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
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.
To reset the radio in your Honda you will need the security code for the radio. This usually is included in the car's manual or you can also go to Honda's website and input your car's VIN number to retrieve the code. Once you have the code the car manual will walk you through the steps of resetting the radio.
The code needed to reset the radio is the model number on top of the radio. The you must call a Honda dealer to get the code. If you are the original owenr or have the owners manual, the code may be in the written in the manual. i need to know how to enter the code on the radio the radio reads ERR 3
