Q: Can't operate the radio after jump starting my car

asked by on

After jumping the battery, the radio is asking for a code. It won't play and no volume. What code do I enter so it will work again? Thank you.

Your radio code can be retrieved directly from Honda. The code will need to be installed to restore radio function. You may need to contact your local Honda dealer if the radio does not accept the code provided by Honda.
