Default Need help with radio

I have a Honda Odyssey, (not 2005 model), and my battery died. I
replaced it without a problem, but my radio doesnít work. The radio
asks for a security code, but my car dealers didnít give me one.

I need step-by-step instructions on how to remove the radio. Can
anyone help me with this? I bought the car used, and its a factory
radio. Thanks ahead

Look in the owner's packet of stuff. It should be in there.

Full information there about undoing the dash panels to get to the
radio. It's actually quite easy. Put the gearshit lever down into 1,
put your fingers behind the dash panel on the left by the gearshift, and
yank.

Anyway, at some point Honda gave their radios the ability to read out
their serial numbers on the display. If that's the case, you don't have
to yank your radio. All you need is the serial number, and the dealer
can give you the code.

But if the radio can't read out the s/n on the display, you'll have to
yank it to get the s/n for the dealer.

Call the dealer who used to service that Odyssey (of unknown vintage)
and they will look up the code in the computer. They often keep it on
file in case the techs have to remove the battery.

They will want your VIN. Order a manual while you have them on the phone
too. Get their fax number, since you may have to fax your registration
to them. You should also fax it to the national office of Honda for the
sake of getting notified of recalls / whatever.

Some dealers put the security code sticker in
the glove box. Seems like a bad idea for
security (thieves can get it) but convenient
for the service department if they have to
disconnect the battery.

No, they don't put the security code in the glove box. They put the
serial number sticker, supplied with the car from Honda, in the glove
box--per the instructions in the owner's manual.

Yes, I know this. I checked many sites, and lots of people said that
you can find your security code in the glove box\fuse box. I checked
all over the car, I mean, EVERYWERE. Its not there. Maybe the previous
owners took it out? :?: :?:
Anyways, its not there. I need to remove the radio to check the number
up there. Does anyone know how to do this? Or know any sites that will
give me step by step instructions on how to remove the radio? FREE?
Because iív been looking for a while, but not having any luck. I did
tho, find a few sites that would give instructions for a small fee.
Thanks again.
