Some people have found it in the glove box/fuse box, but if you can't find it written there, I made a thread on how to get the serial number, which you will need if you contact the dealer to get the code

Hey I haven't seen this answered.... although I am sure it is an obvious one. My deck now is not allowing me to enter the code. How can I reset this to allow me to enter the code?

Thanks!!

You need to pull the BackUp fuse and reset the radio. After several attempts to enter the code it locks the radio until a reset is done.

good luck

Thank you TexasHonda! Is this BackUp fuse located with all the other fuses or on the connection for the deck?

It's an under the hood, 10A fuse labeled BackUp. Your ECU will also reset so don't plan on an emissions test till you drive for an hour or so.

good luck

Why would they even put the Radio Code anti-theft feature on the stock (non-Bose) radio? It's not like it's a premium sound system. The sound out of mine is mediocre at best.
