[WORKING] Honda Civic Radio Codes


Welcome to the Ultimate guide on the Code for Honda Civic Radio!

You are riding your Honda Civic, and you want to turn on your radio. The car says you need to enter the code, but you have no idea what that means.


Yes, you may need to enter the radio code to reset the audio system if you recently replaced the battery in your Honda Civic or if the battery died. Fortunately, most cars have a radio code that you can find in the glove box, owner’s manual, or by inputting the vehicle identification number (VIN) and radio serial number.

When the battery in your Honda Civic dies or is replaced, you may be unprepared to turn on the radio for the first time. In other words, until you remember the radio code for your car, you have to drive in silence because the sound system has been reset.

Fortunately, we have compiled a detailed guide on where to find your radio code.

Your 2003 Honda Civic radio code is easy to find. It’s possible you won’t even need it; sometimes all it takes is a quick reset of the radio by hitting and holding the power button for a few seconds.

If you are still required for a code, the glove box is the place to start. Your Honda Civic’s radio passcode might be printed on a sticker in the owner’s handbook or displayed in the car’s glove box. A card containing the radio’s code and the serial number could have been included with your 2003 Honda Civic purchase. You should make a note of your Honda Civic’s radio code after you find it. To get the music going again, you’ll need to use the radio’s number pad to input a code.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

  • Why is my Honda requesting the radio code?

Changing the battery in your Honda is the most common cause of a radio code request. The radio will prompt for the passphrase each time the battery dies or you remove it. Most radios may be reset and made operational once again without needing the code to be entered if the power button is held down for 2 seconds. If it doesn’t work, you’ll have to use the radio code.

  • Where can I find the internet code for my honda stereo?

For those who would rather not go to a Honda dealership in search of a radio code error code, there is a corresponding online form. Honda, please go to Radio-Navigate (http://radio-navi code.com). In addition to a radio’s serial number, you may find your ZIP code and vehicle identification number (VIN) too.

  • Is it possible to get a radio code with the VIN?

Any time a manufacturer provides a way to search for a VIN over the phone or online, they will often also provide contact information for the vehicle’s current and previous owners. Send us an email with your code attached if you’d want us to keep track of it.

  • Without the code, how can I reset the Honda stereo?

Put the key in the ignition. If the message code appears on the screen, start by turning off the radio.

Hold the Power/Volume buttons for 45-50 seconds. This should unlock your radio in less than a minute. Attempt starting the engine again if necessary. For 60 seconds, press and hold the Power button down. This way, you may still listen to music and radio.

Any Honda Civic manufactured in 2010 or after may use this technique. If none of these techniques work, you’ll need to locate your serial number.


Radio codes can deter theft, but if your battery has just died or you have changed it and you have forgotten what it is, they might become an annoyance instead.

This post aimed to assist those who are just learning about radio codes or who have lost their radio code since the last time they required it.
