Default I had to replace my battery in my 2005 Honda Pilot now the radio is asking for code?

I called the dealership where I bought the truck, they said check the glove box, I told them I already tryed that it was not the, then he told me to bring the truck in the pull out the radio and give me the code. the only problem is that thay want $108.00 to do that, is the a cheaper way

there are a few ways to find the code. if you've already looked for the stickers then #5 is probably the way for you to go1) look in the paperwork that came with the car. there should be a white credit card with the anti-theft code on it.2) if that's not to be found, look inside the glove box for a white sticker that would be placed on the walls of the glove box. it may have 5 numbers on it or a string of 9-10 letters and numbers. or two rows with the 5 numbers above the 9-10 letters and numbers. If you find the 5 numbers on the sticker, that is your radio reactivation code and you can enter that to reactivate the radio.3) if you find the 9-10 letters and numbers sticker, that is the serial number for your radio. if you call a honda dealer and give them the serial number they can get the code for you4) if you can't find the sticker in the glove box, look behind the ash tray (if there is one in that car) or look under the trunk lid as some dealers put the stickers there instead of in the glove box.5) if you can't find the stickers, then try to retrieve the radio serial number by following this procedure. with the key in the ignition and turned to the ON position but with the radio OFF, press in and hold in the station preset buttons number 1 & 6 with your right hand. Then, while holding the buttons in, turn the radio on with your left hand. You should see a string of 5 digits starting with the letter "U". it will stay on for about 10 seconds and switch to a second string starting with the letter "L". if you get this, then write them down in that order. The string will repeat 3X. When you have the numbers written UxxxLxxx, call your honda dealer and give them those numbers--they are the serial number for the radio and the honda dealer can get the code from that string.if you can't find the stickers or retrieve the serial number then you'll have to remove the radio to get the serial number off of the back of the radio. The radio codes are individual to the radio and not to the car and there is not other way to do it at that point.hope that helps
