Yes you have to disconnect the NEGITIVE side of the battery for two minutes. Then the radio will say CODE enter the code that is usually in the owners manual or a separate card that says radio code. If you can't find it call the dealer and give them your vin and they will give it to you for no charge.

This is a anti theft device. You need to get code for radio. Sometimes it is in your owners manual. If not you can call a honda dealer for it. Sometimes they can give it to you from the vin number of your car.

Just a note. I do not know anything about your car. I DO know that if you buy a new battery every three years you will never get stuck unexpectedly waiting for a tow or service truck, And the price per month of the battery remains about the same. And be sure that the person that replaces the battery uses a small, temporary battery that plugs into the cig lighter outlet while the main battery is being disconnected. That way there will be NO little odd problems with re-starting after the new battery is installed. The person that changed the battery is not a professional.

You will need to disconnect the battery for a couple of minutes. Reconnect then enter the anti-theft code for your radio. If for some reason you don't have the radio try the following.1. Look in or on the side of glove box for small sticker with numbers, should be 5 digits with numbers no greater then 6.2. Pull out the ashtray and see if the sticker is on the back of there.(older models that have them)3. Pull radio from dash and write down radio serial number and call local dealer with that number and they will be able to get the code for you. They will ask verifying questions.4. If you happen to have all the books from that came with the car look in the 'HONDA SERVICE HISTORY' book, NOT the owners manual. It should be on the first page in the AUDIO CODE box.If you turn off radio and hold the 1 and 6 preset buttons then turn radio on it will give you the serial number.
