I left a light on and the battery went dead, thus I have to put the
codes in for the Nav & Radio.I have the code number and serial number
for both. The Nav worked first try but the radio keeps coming up with
You may continue to have odd electrical problems if you don't disconnect
the battery for 20 seconds and start all over. Hondas get scrambled good
when the power goes really low.
Recently, I had a similar problem with the radio in my 92 Accord Ex. I
finally had to remove the negative lead to the battery, wait 3 or 4
minutes, re-attach the lead. Then the radio would accept the code numbers.
Thanks .. I now have the battery totally disconnected and in about an
hour I'll try it again. I have gone over my dealer paperwork and
definitely have the supplied code from when I bought it. Plus they put
a sticker in the glovebox with the code on it. I'll try again ..
the serial number is about 9 digits long .. the code is 5 ... Plus the
serial number has numbers over 6 in it ..
Yes I've read the manual and everything online ... I've pulled the
battery cables off numerous times. I was able to enter the code for
the GPS which worked fine .. but not the radio ..
Very frustrating !!
I thought the PDI sheets for your PILOT explained how you can determine
the serial number / theft code for your stereo:
Maybe the dealer swapped out the stereo for some reason and didn't
follow procedures for your model . . .
For sure it's in the 2002 CR-V PDI sheets:
You should be able to figure out the CORRECT serial number (on your
Pilot) if you follow the CR-V instructions...
I wonder if the radio has been replaced for some reason?
That would explain the code not working;it doesn't match the unit you have.
I guess then you would have to remove the radio,read it's serial number,and
obtain the correct code from a Honda dealer.

That's what this PDF document is about . Since about '00, the stereos
will all tell you their serial number if you apply the trick described
in the PDI Sheets:
