Radio Code grrrrr
« on: December 20, 2016, 09:10:51 PM »
I have a 2011 Jazz that has recently had the battery disconnected and the radio wants me to put a code in.

I have the original wallet the car came with, there are two cars in there, one is the size of a credit card and is for the key number and the other much smaller with a number that has one capital letter and 3 figure like A123. Is this the code for the radio and if so, how do I enter it into said radio. But if this is not the code, where am I likely to find it?

Fanks.

Is there a manual in the wallet?....should tell you how to enter it. There are different radio models.

Can't remember if that A123 type number is likely to be the code, but I am pretty sure Honda has all the codes on a database and you local Honda dealer should be able to tell you if the A123 one is wrong.

The manual says to "enter the 5 digit code using the radio presets"

So I assume the A123 number isn't it.  >:(

It's numbers only, using the radio preset buttons

The Radio Code is also on a credit card sized card which is clearly written 'Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card' with a five figure code and the Radio Serial number.

It's not on there, it's not in the service book either, it just says "Radio Code; N/A".

Dealer wants me to take the car, V5, some ID and some money for the code. They also close at 5, it's a 40 minute drive and I don't finish work until 5.

I contacted Honda UK and got increasingly shirty with them when it became apparent they weren't going to help me. They told me that it was for "security" but didn't explain how anyone would remove the radio from the car or what they would do with it when they had done so, I also pointed out it would be easier to remove the drivers seat than the radio.

Willy is not happy  >:(

True enough, most cars radio is now integrated in the dash rather than on a DIN fitting, I wouldn't have thought there was much of a market for stolen radios nowadays.

Edit: Post your request and I'll see if I can help.
Radio serial number is 8 digits normally on one line (but alternately displayed as Uxxxx then Lxxxx on old Honda cars)
-----

STANDARD UNITS

Turn the ignition key to the ON position make sure the radio is switched OFF
Hold the preset buttons 1 and 6 on the front of your radio.
Keep the buttons 1 and 6 pressed in then turn on your radio
An eight digit serial number will appear on the display of the radio. Example: 40891209  (or U4098 L1209)

For some HONDA SAT NAV UNITS

Turn the ignition key to the ON position make sure the radio is switched OFF
Press and hold the top sections of the SEEK/SKIP and CH/DISC bars.
Now press and let go of the PWR/VOL knob
You should now see the display changing between two screens
An eight digit serial number will now appear on the display Example: 30932019 (or U3093 L2019).

The radio s/n is 8 digits and all numbers, no letters, so doesn't have the same format

When i got my 3rd jazz it had the wrong radio card with it so when i disconnected the battery i locked the radio out, I was using the car so could not get to a dealer so i phoned Honda uk who said go to your dealer for the code, I took a photo of the car with the radio displaying the serial number and sent it to my other half's phone, she went in during the day with said photo, my DL and reg document together with her docs (same address) and they gave her the code free of charge, if you do the serial number donkey work they dont charge

In the spirit of Christmas, if you send me your code (either 8 digits or U4digits + L4digits) I will provide an unlock code for you.

Thank you for your kind offer. I managed to buy a code off the internet which appeared, as if by magic on my mobile telephone. Said code was inserted into my car wireless and I now have hot and cold running rock music.

Honda UK and my local Honda emporium can go forth and multiply for not helping me very much and designing a (very good) car that needs a radio code and has an empty spare wheel well.
