Default Radio asking for Code on Honda Civic 2004?

Thats basically my question lol. I looked everywhere for the code but I couldnt find it

I have had my radio off more about 2 weeks now and it sucks!!

Car is registered for me so i have all that I have the VIN# && I do have the serial number of the radio. Does anyone know how I can get it for free? Dealer is charging me 50$ That I dont have, any help will be appreciated.

If you are the original owner, you should have the radio code in your possession. If not, check for a sticker on the inside of the glove box. It should be a 6-8 digit serial number...that number is for your radio. Give this number to your local dealership and they can give you the radio code. If it isn't in your will have to pull the radio to get the serial number.

Usually the radio code is tucked in with the owner's manual when you buy the car. But I assume you looked there.

The dealer is not required to charge anything for this. Try some other dealers. Or, you could take your car in for service and then claim the radio was working before you brought it in. You might trick them into giving you the code that way.

A third option: Get rid of the Honda radio altogether. You can order a good basic unit from Crutchfield for not much more than the $50 the dealer is trying to charge you, and you'll never have to worry about the stupid code again after that.

if you can go to another dealer and explain the situation to them they should be able to get access to your code from their computer and they should not be charging you for this as it should only take a few seconds to do I had the same issue with my 1999 ford and was not charged.

that $50 charge is to pull the radio out to read the serial number... outrageous, maybe, but they need to pay the bills too

 can help you out if you want to DIY and find the serial number to get the radio code for FREE
