Why is my Honda asking for the Honda radio code?
The number one reason your Honda will ask for a radio code is when you replace the battery. Every time the battery is disconnected or becomes completely dead the radio will ask for the code. In most cases, you can just press and hold the power button for 2 seconds and the radio will automatically reset and start working properly without entering the code. If this does not work then you will have to enter the Radio Code.
