Displaying the Anti-Theft
Radio Serial Number
On 01-02 Accord EXs, follow these steps if you need to display
the anti-theft radio serial number:
1. Turn on the radio, and turn the ignition switch
to ON (II). The display must read COdE to get
the serial number.
2. Turn off the radio.
3. Press and hold the #1 and #6 radio preset
buttons, then turn on the radio. The radio will
display a U and four digits (for example,
U1004); these are the first four digits of the
serial number. Then the radio will display an L
and four digits (for example L8564); these are
the last four digits of the serial number. Record
all eight digits, then go to step 4.
4. Once you get the serial # , call the dealer and get the code
5. Enter the anti-theft code into the radio.
