    NEED HELP!!!
    I bought second hand Honda CRV 2002 out of USA. There was no card with
    code and serial for audio system within the car. And I don't know the
    dealer. Accumulator went dead. So audio system locked asking for the
    anti-theft code. Please help me with that problem! What can be done?
    Where can I get the code if I have technical passport on my car?
    THANKS for help. Respect.

    Honda USA can tell you what dealer sold the car.

  3. Check the left inside of the glovebox. its usually on a sticker there.

  4. Go to the dealer with your license and registration, and for a few $$$
    they'll reset it for you. If they charge you (they usually do...) tell
    them you WANT THE CODE!!!!

    This may not work with all radios but does for my 2004 Honda Odyssey with
    RES. To find the serial number without removing the stereo. Turn on the key,
    make sure the radio is off. Hold down the #1 and #6 preset buttons and turn
    on the radio. It will then show the radio's serial number on the display.

    This only works if the radio is locked out, you cannot find the serial
    number that way if the radio is working properly.

    Found this out after buying my 2004 Odyssey from a used car dealer. They
    disconnected the battery for some reason and locked out the radio. This
    disabled the stereo. There were no decals in any of the areas where they
    should have been.

    I got the serial number using this method, then called my local dealership.
    They said they were not supposed to do so but gave me the unlock code over
    the phone anyway.

    This is cool. I'll add it to the Radio Code page on the FAQ.
