To find a 2000 Honda Accord radio code, look inside your glove box and owner’s manual for a sticker listing the code. If you can’t find the sticker, you’ll need your VIN and your radio serial number to look up your radio’s unique code. 
Perhaps this has happened to you before: you’ve replaced your car’s battery after a few years of wear and tear and didn’t expect any hiccups, but now your radio requires a special code from you before you can turn on your favorite playlist. 
Not sure what a radio code is or where to begin looking for yours? Don’t worry—

Why your 2000 Honda Accord needs a radio code

It may be hard to believe, but your vehicle’s radio is one of the most frequently stolen car components. Radio codes were created as a form of security to prevent car radio theft. 
If you’ve disconnected or replaced your car’s battery not long ago, your 2000 Honda Accord requires you to enter a radio code. You can only use your car’s radio unit once the code is entered, which works wonders as a theft deterrent. 
While this code is incredibly useful if you want to deter thieves, it can be a major pain if your radio code locks you out of your radio as well, and you don’t know where that special code is. 

How to find your 2000 Honda Accord radio code 

Luckily, finding your 2000 Honda Accord’s radio code is a pretty easy task. In fact, in most cases, you won’t even need the code—simply press and hold the power button for 2 seconds and the radio should automatically reset and start working properly without entering the code. 
Occasionally, this unlocking method won’t work and you’ll need the radio code to use your radio again. The best place to start looking for your radio code is the glove box. Find the sticker on your owner’s manual or even on the glove box itself that reads “Anti-Theft Radio Code.” 
It’s likely that the sticker will list the radio’s serial number too. The code you're looking for is just five digits long with no letters in it. Anything else you find isn’t your radio code. 

How to look up a 2000 Honda Accord radio code

You’re in great shape if you’ve found your radio code easily, but sometimes your sticker will be missing and you’ll need to perform a few extra steps to get your radio running again. 
To look up the code elsewhere, you’ll need your
Honda vehicle identification number (VIN)
and the radio serial number. 
Your VIN is always located on the driver’s side of your car behind the windshield, but you can also find it printed on your insurance card or in your registration documents as well. 
If you know your radio serial number you can continue, but if you don’t, you’ll have to bring your car to a Honda Dealership. The radio serial number is stamped on the body of the radio unit, and the only way to read the number is to remove the radio and reinstall it. 
Once you have both numbers handy, you can proceed with looking up your Honda Accord’s radio code. Here are the ways to do it: 
  • Use Honda’s
    online lookup tool
  • Call 1-800-999-1009
  • Bring your Honda to the nearest dealership
