The audio system in your Honda Accord allows you to stay connected to your favorite apps and playlists on your drives around the Monroe area. If you have to replace the battery, you’ll automatically be asked for the Honda Accord radio code. You may be wondering “What is a Honda Accord radio code and how to get the radio code for a Honda Accord?” Typically, this can be solved by holding the radio power button down for a few seconds until the radio starts without a code.

Finding the code is simple, so is the process on how to enter the radio code for a Honda Accord! 

How to Enter Radio Code for Honda Accord

Once you’ve found the correct code, entering it is as straightforward as pressing a couple buttons. See the steps below:

  1. Start by turning the ignition key to the On position without starting the engine. 
  2. Once the system asks for the radio code, simply press the corresponding preset button or enter the code using the touchscreen.

How to Get Serial Number for Honda Accord with Navigation System

If you’re having trouble locating the serial number on your older Honda model, here’s how you can find the serial number using the device display:

  • Turn the ignition switch to ACC (I).
  • Turn on the audio system, and make sure you see CODE in the upper display. Then, turn off the audio system.
  • Press and hold the top halves of the SEEK/SKIP and CH/DISC bars, and then press and release the PWR/VOL knob. This will allow the display to toggle between two screens. 
  • The first screen displays a U and the first four digits of the serial number (for example, U2200).
  • The second screen displays an L and the last four digits of the serial number (for example, L0055).
  • Write down the numbers ignoring the U and L, then use this serial number to identify the correct radio code for your Honda model.
