Honda CRV Radio Code

How to reset Honda CR-V Stereo Code | Anyone Can Do It!

Almost all Honda radios have their anti-theft system that, if the battery is disconnected, will ask the owner or user to enter a five digit code so that the stereo or Cd player will work again.

When you purchase a car, the dealer of the company should give you the Honda CRV Radio Code. It may be written in front of your user’s manual.

But if you lost your stereo code, you need to contact the dealer of the car who sold it to you and ask them to look the auto-radio code for you.
If the power of the battery to the radio was lost altogether, all the presets of your station will be deleted. So you have to find your preferred stations in the audio system and reprogram it again.

Do You Have The Radio Code?

CRV Anti Theft Code

Look for the document of the car. When you bought your Honda, you should have received a small document about the size of a credit card along with the owner’s manual. You will find the code printed on that ID card, so all you have to do is enter the PIN code to reset your Honda CR-V.

The five or six digit secret number can also be written on the radio itself (so you need to remove the unit from the dashboard to see). Also, you have to check inside of your Glovebox. The code can be listed on a small white sticker inside it (will be labeled “Anti-Theft Radio Code”).

If you find it, just enter it using the preset buttons. You can refer to the code entry section for more details. But if you lost you code and can’t find it don’t worry. You can still recover it. But first you’ll need your radio serial number to calculate the code.

How To Find The Honda CR-V Radio Serial Number?

As i said before, if you lost your car audio system or car navigation code, you must find the unit’s serial number to be able to generate the code from it. So here are tow options that will help you :

  1. The first way is that you pull your car radio and than look up the serial number on the side or the rear, its probably on a sticker somewhere on it.
  2. The second is much easier, you put your key in the ignition and than, turn it on to the accessory position. Next you hold down preset key number 1 and key number 6 and than press the power button once, and a second time. You will see a digital serial on the display, for example U7592 L3084. Ignore this U and L, then note all 8 digits on a piece of paper, we will need it in the next step.
