•the radio is locked in anti-theft mode and requires a code to reactivate it. on a honda when the radio loses power the logic is that the reason it lost power is someone removed the radio (as in a theft). to make the radio inoperative to the theif the radio is locked into an anti-theft mode and can't be actiated unless you have the right code. the code is specific to each radio; there is no universal code.there are a few ways to find the code.1) 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.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
