Yes, since yours is an 03, you can take it to any (Honda) dealer and they'll retrieve the serial number for the audio unit. They can get you the radio code as well.

Make sure you have proof of ownership with you (title, insurance card, something) or the dealer may not give you the code.

You can call any dealer. You may need to get the serial number off the radio. You can do this by holding the preset 1 and 6 on the radio and turn the radio on with the key on. It will give you a letter and then a series of numbers for a few seconds the another letter with another series of numbers. All the numbers are the serial number...good luck
