Default Accord 2001 - radio code reset

I took my car in for service, and they had to disconnect the battery, so my
radio code had to be reset. I had marked down the wrong code, and tried it
several times, after which it would not let me try any more. Since then I
have located the correct code number, but I appear to be locked out due to
my previous error. How can I set the code so that I can once again use my
radio?

disconnect the battery for a few mins, or take out the radio fuse (should be
a 7.5 amp fuse for 10 secs & put it back in - it's in the fusebox) - u
should then be allowed to have another go at the code....

dont screw it up again tho, after a certain number of attempts the radio
will become unuseable .... no kidding

===================

A 2001 Accord is certainly worth owning an Owner's Manual for. Read the
FINE manual... It says, if you screw it up, leave the radio turned ON
for one hour, then try entering your code. You'll have three tries.

1-800-782-4356 is the number where you can order your FINE manual, if
you're in North America.

Actually, I don't need the manual since nice folks like you are willing to
provide the answer. Thanks!

And that's the point I've been making for some time now: as long as
someone is willing to spoon-feed people on basic stuff, people will
ignore the manual and go right to the net.

It's time to start giving some seriously bad advice, and wait for people
to get pissed and finally open the book themselves...

That's not the right thing to do. Sometimes, people don't know where to find
the answer, or just need to be pointed in the right direction, or don't want
to expend excessive time reading books when someone might have had the same
problem and know exactly how to solve it, without looking it up. I've spent
lots of time answering questions regarding computers and financial issues,
as I have knowledge in those areas, and never once have I suggested that the
questioner read the manual. If I had nothing to add, I just didn't respond.
I certainly wouldn't advocate deliberately providing faulty advice. I hope
you didn't really mean that.
