There should be a paper,small with owners booklet... that has radio code if she bought car new....If not you have to remove radio to get serial numbers and call the (Honda) dealer. They will give you the code. Call them first b4 removing radio as you might be able to just give them vin # certain years they have codes to.

This radio code is usually indicated on a paper that comes with the owners manual. If she's the original owner, and didn't change the code ( much like a password on a computer ), then it should be the same. If she isn't the original owner, and the owner changed the code and didn't leave a note with the vehicle as to the change in code, she may have to buy a new radio for the car. Most manufacturers don't keep a generic code to "unlock" the radio. If they did, the thieves would have all the codes circulated around by now. My friend had the same problem with his used Audi. He had to replace the radio. They found the original owner, but he had thrown away the code he entered when he cleaned the car out at trade-in. Hopefully Honda is better prepared to help!

The code may be written on the radio or on a card in the glovebox (or similar "hidden" place )

Further suggestions may be found here

Otherwise if you are in the USA try

If the above suggestions are not successful ,then unfortunately the code will not be available for free (or cheap ) from anywhere on the Internet.

Will only be available from your Main HONDA Dealer or a Radio Decoding Service
