How do you reset your 1991 Honda Accord radio code?

Answer"there is only one code it can be. Is the one you have for that radio serial number. If so, remove the No. 39(7.5A) fuse from the under hood fuse/relay box for 10 seconds. Reinstall the fuse and turn on the radio, the word 'CODE' should be displayed. From there simply enter the 5-digit code by pressing the radio preset numbers. If it doesn't work you have the wrong code(s). You'd have to remove the radio and get the serial number off the top of the radio and call a HONDA dealer with it and then they can tell you what the correct code is." Rick

The following directions is how I got my radio to work again after having the battery changed.
Leaving the radio off at this point
Turn the car key over without turning the engine on
Before turning the radio on press and hold down 1and 6 at the same time
While holding down 1 and 6 turn the car radio on
The car radio message will still read "Code"
Stop holding down 1 and 6 (this unlocks the anti-theft device
Now just enter the car radio's code.
My radio-code for a 1991 Honda Accord is 35511
The radio will just come on
Note: You only have 3 chances before the anti-theft device locks you out so follow the directions. If you have already tried several time and the above directions don't work then drive it for awhile and wait until the next day then try again, which is what I ended up doing and it worked perfectly. I thought that when I held down 1 and 6 that some magical new code would appear but it did not, the car radio still read 'Code" so don't worry that no numbers appear. Holding down 1 and 6 releases the anti-theft device
