I have Honda CRV and I have to preset the radio code for it work. I have the code, but the last digit ends with 8. The CRV has only 6 preset buttons. Please help me to enter the digit 8 for my radio code.

You don't have a radio code if it ends with 8. Honda radio codes are 1-6 and 5 numbers long. If you have a code with more digits, you may have the radio serial number. My suggestion is to turn the radio off and press the 1 & 6 buttons. Turn the radio on. You will get 4 characters, write these down. The screen will change and you will get 4 more characters. These 8 characters are your radio serial number. With these digits, you can get the radio code from Honda.

Hope this helps!


Again, two methods for the radio:

Method for all Honda/Acura vehicles except '03-'07 Accords with navigation system

1. The code is five digits, which will correspond to the radio station preset buttons that are numbered 1 through 6.

2. While the radio's display is showing COdE, punch each preset button once, IN THE ORDER GIVEN.

Example: Code is 62531. Hit the right-hand (6th) button first, then the 2nd from left, then the 5th from left, and so on.

3. If you have done the order correctly, the radio should start working after the last digit has been entered. If it does not, then you have made a mistake. You may try up to ten times (only three times on some models!), after which the radio will lock up and you need to then either disconnect the car's battery or wait one hour before trying again. If you disconnect the battery, disconnect both cables from the battery, then touch the cable ends together. Some radios have capacitors that will keep the memory alive for up to ten minutes. Touching the cable ends together will discharge the capacitors.

4. If you make a mistake in code entry part way through, CONTINUE entering ALL digits of the sequence of five, even if they are just random! You MUST finish the sequence of five in order for the radio to allow you to restart the sequence.

Method 2: for ?03?07 Accords with the navigation system

Verbatim from the actual Honda documentation:

Use the TUNE knob to enter the first four digits of the anti-theft code into the audio unit. (Ignore the last digit; it?s not used.) When you turn the TUNE knob, COdE disappears, and a single digit is displayed. Turn the knob left or right to select each of the anti-theft code digits. When you press the TUNE knob, the system beeps and accepts each digit as it spells out COdE on the display.
