Thread: Reprogram Radio

  1. #1

    Default Reprogram Radio

    I'm new here.

    I went on vacation and left my dome light on in my car. My sister called AAA and had the car jumped.
    Now my radio doesn't work and I'm getting an 'error 5' on the display.
    How can I reprogram my radio without taking it to the dealer.
    Thanks for your help

    Hi Lori and welcome to HondaSUV.com.
    What year is your V?
    Where in the US are you?
    Are you the original owner of the V or is it second hand?

    The search function at the top of this page will help you as well.
    Here's one I found using the advanced search with "radio codes".

    Quite simply, you need the radio code. It came with the car on a card, usually stored with the owner's manual - that book in the glove box.
    The code was also routinely on stickers, located in various places within the vehicle. Try the glovebox door, inside the fuse box panel, under the hood on the engine bay fuse/relay panel, etc.

    My salesman that sold me the V wrote it in my Owner's Manual when we went over it before delivery.

    Yes. Battery disconnect will erase it. Just write them down and reprogram.

    I thought so too. Even my manual says so but 05/06 does not lose its station memory. 04 loses its memory?

    BBQ is right, the 05-06 radio does not lose settings after disconnecting the battery or the radio. I found that weird too. It does require a code.

    As to the OP, you have had the car for 3 years and did not read the Owner's Manual?

    The codes are listed in the manual, as well as the explanation what the "code" on display means. Time to dig up that manual and get cozy on the couch and read it cover to cover 3-4 times. There will be a quiz.
