Radio code recovery procedure

If you do not have the sticker with your radio code on it (check all the hiding spots, the original dealer may have stuck it somewhere), you can follow this procedure to recover your radio code and take that number to your local Honda dealer where they can look up your code.

Remember, this just gets you your radio code:
From Philiam

"turn off unit press and hold #1 & #6 presets while turning the radio on. the display toggles between 2 screens the first displays a U and the second screen an L. Ignore the letters that's your units serial # Ex. U1234 L4321 your serial # is 12344321. Honda just enters that on their puter and you have the antitheft code put in by honda. Beats tearing out the radio. "

After that, it will be the S2200 under an assumed name.

I have a '02 s2000 and can't find the radio code, Looked all through or around, the car. It's a used car, so I don't have the original phone number or zip code either. Is there any other way I can get the radio code.

I will try to remember to confirm the recovery procedure on my '02 when I get home,but I truely have no doubt it will work. This method has been used on AP1's for years by MANY S2000 owners.

I just tried it with my radio and it didn't show me any numbers, HOWEVER, I believe it doesn't show any numbers because my radio is working. What comes up when I am holding button #1 and #6 and then turn on the radio is the channel the radio was on when I turned the radio off.

Just a reminder, if you are going to pull the battery, hook either a low amp battry charger or, I'm told, a 9 volt battery to the cables to keep the radio code working.

True - it only works when the radio is in lock mode.

Normally, the dealer will write it in your maintenance schedule/manual that came with the car (at least they were good enough to do that with my 07)

In case you don't get along with your local dealer for some reason, here's a Honda site that will get you the information for free, as long as Honda has a record of it being registered to you.

there won't be a number higher than 6 in the code to unlock the radio. The serial code and the unlock code are two different codes. After you do the procedure posted you take the serial code you wrote down and call a dealerships and say HEY GOD DAMNIT GIVE ME MY CODE YOU SONOFABITCH! after that they will you give you the unlock code and then you enter that in your radio. It's a two step process.

Not every dealership will be forthcoming with the info. Especially over the phone. Who's to say you haven't ripped off someone else's radio and you're trying to sell it. My dealership requires proof that the car is registered to the person requesting the the unlock code. Or it would defeat the purpose of having an antitheft radio in the first place.

If you have the serial# you can get the code here.
https://www.ahm-ownerlink.com/login....d_Main.asp#top
You have to have your VIN# and have the car registered in your name.

If you call Honda of America's line (california, methinks), they will give you the code over the phone......they have a set of questions they ask, with which they prove that the radio is the one that came with the car.

i looked all over for my code and couldnt find it, so i had my father get ahold of the dealer through his work, he is a certified master mechanic. after about a week with no radio i finally got it, now just a few days ago i found the hidden compartment (after owning it for about 6 months) and when i looked in there the little white sticker was in there with the code.

Honda Recovery Site Codes Didn't Work

Got the serial number using the above procedure (thank you very much). Went to the Honda site from the link above and got a set of 13 possible codes. Input them all twice (pulling the fuse after entering ten, twice). No go.

Went on a safari (in my house) and found the owner's manual. Activation code on inside. *sigh*

Good news is, I've got audio again. (I'd die w/o it. My life has a sound track!). Bad news is that the codes from the Honda site above are not reliable.
