Radio Security Code Info
The following applies to factory radios in the EX trim level ("Y package" in Canada), all years.
Some owners report having found a sticker on the side of the glove compartment door with the radio's serial number and unlock code. You could be one of the lucky ones! If not, read on.
The owner's manual* explains:
A card with your vehicle's five-digit radio security code should have been included with the car's paperwork. Sometimes it's tucked into the owner's manual. Sometimes there is a sticker inside the glovebox.
The owner's manual continues:
Sometimes, especially with a used car, the radio code is nowhere to be found. In that case, you must access the radio's serial number. The procedure for 2004 and later Elements:
Once you have the radio's serial number, you can get the security code from one of at least four sources:
a) Honda's Radio & Navigation System Micro-site
b) A Honda dealer
c) The Honda OwnerLink Web site (you will need to register and enter the car's VIN)
d) Toll-free customer service number, 1-800-999-1009
For 2003 vehicles, the Frequently Asked Questions page on the Honda Web site says:
*If you don't have an owner's manual, you can purchase a paper copy here (2003 shown; change the model year as needed), or view PDF versions courtesy of techinfo.honda.com. Links to individual years here. (The 2003–07 manuals contain hyperlinks to individual pages. The 2008–10 manuals, OTOH, are very large, unlinked files; best to right-click the link to save to your machine than to try to read it online.)
