security codes are normal on stereos you need to look in your hand book for the code, or ring the car dealer where it was bought.

The code should be a 4 digit number written in your manual. If it's Honda installed. If you don't have it try the selling dealer. If you have no luck there try contacting Honda head office. They will supply you with the radio code.

If you bought the car new, code should be in the paperwork somewhere.If not, just hit up any service deptarment at a honda dealership and they can code it out.Just a matter of doing odd items like play, pause, stop, stop, FM, stop, FM....just as an example.

That play, pause, stop crap is B.S. the security code for your radio is a four digit numerical code printed on a plastic card clearly labeled and placed in your owners manual packet my the manufacturer, if for some reason you have lost this card. You will have to take it to a Honda Dealership where they can look it up on Hondanet using your Vin# (you will need to show proof of ownership) It should only take about 15 min but it will cost you $40. In the future spent 10 bucks at pep boys and get a memory saver that plugs into your 12v acc port (since the 03 accord doesn't have a "cigarette lighter") this will power your clock radio and memory seat settings (if equipped) while the battery is disconnected.

if you don't have the code written in your manual, go to any honda dealer. if you don't want to pay them to take the radio out ( which is all they will do ) and you know how to take it out your self and not break it, take the radio out, get the serial numbers and model numbers off the back. give that info to the dealership and show proof that you own the car and they should give you a code

YOU MUST GET THE SERIAL NUMBER OFF THE RADIO ITSELF AND CALL A HONDA DEALER.

Go to the dealer and tell them you need the code.
