Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Pauline, If you need a code to use the CD player, whomever you purchased the CD player from, should be able to provide you the security code. If you need a security code to install the CD player, call the dealer, give them your VIN (vehicle identification number) and ask them to give you the code. There should be no charge for the code if you own the vehicle. All My Best, Amy Mattinat

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Pauline, When I worked for Honda, you had to give them the serial number from the radio to get the code. There was no other way to get it if you lost the card that came with the radio. Once you get it, put that number in a safe place. Sometimes when power is lost to the radio, you need to use the code to reset it once power is restored. Lori Johnson
