Why your 2000 Honda Civic needs a radio code

It may seem silly that your radio needs a code, but car manufacturers have realized that it’s one of the most frequently stolen car parts. To help protect you—and avoid the cost of replacing your radio—car radios have codes for security. 
Whenever your 2000 Honda Civic’s battery is disconnected or changed, your Civic will require a radio code to continue using your car’s sound system. So, if someone tries to steal your radio, they won’t be able to use it without a code. 
Even so, it can be a huge hassle if your battery dies or you replace it, and you have no idea where to find the code to unlock your radio. 

How to find your 2000 Honda Civic radio code

Thankfully, finding the radio code for your 2000 Honda Civic isn’t hard—and most of the time, you can actually reset your radio in a few seconds. Before you go hunting for the code, try pressing and holding the power button for two seconds. In most cases, the radio should reset and begin working without the code. 
But if that doesn’t work, you’ll have to do a bit of digging. First, start with your glove compartment. Check to see if there’s a sticker in it that has a code. Typically, it will say “Anti-Theft Radio Code.” You’ll also want to check your owner’s manual. In some instances, this sticker may list your radio’s serial number. Your Honda Civic’s radio code will be five digits long and only numbers. If you see anything longer or with letters, it isn’t the right code

How to look up a 2000 Honda Civic radio code

If you’ve lost your owner’s manual or can’t find the sticker, don’t fret! You can still find your radio code by using your
Honda vehicle identification number (VIN)
To find your VIN, there are several places to look. First, check your windshield. Most Hondas have the VIN stamped on the dash, which you can see when looking at the windshield from the front of the car. Another place to check is the driver’s side door jamb. 
Finally, if you have your insurance card or registration handy, these should list your VIN as well. 
After you track down your VIN, you’ll need to find your radio’s serial number. To find this in a 2000 Honda Civic, you’ll need to remove your radio as the serial number is located on the body of the radio. Your owner’s manual should show you how to remove it. If you’re unsure how to remove it or can’t find your owner’s manual, bring your car to the dealership or a shop specializing in sound systems. 
After you find your VIN and radio serial number, you can find the actual radio code for your 2000 Honda Civic. You can do this by:
  • Using Honda’s
    online lookup tool
  • Bringing your Honda into a dealership 
  • Calling 1-800-999-1009
