If you need to figure out your 2006 Honda Pilot radio code, your glove compartment is the first place you’ll want to look for it. If you don’t have luck there, you can also look it up online with your VIN and radio serial number.
While a car radio isn’t necessarily required for your Honda Pilot to function, it definitely helps make long car rides a lot more bearable. But if your
car battery
died or was recently replaced, you might have discovered that you’re now unable to use your radio until you can enter some kind of code.
Whether radio codes are a new concept to you, or you’ve used yours before but can’t remember it,

Why your 2006 Honda Pilot needs a radio code

First things first, let’s answer the big question: what’s a radio code, and why would your 2006 Honda Pilot need one? 
While radio thefts aren’t as common as they used to be in years past, they’re still one of the most frequently stolen objects during
car thefts
. That’s where your car’s radio code comes in—if your car radio detects it’s been disconnected from its power source, the next time you turn it on, it should prompt you for the radio code.
And until you enter your 2006 Honda Pilot’s unique, 5-digit radio code, you won’t be able to use your
sound system
.
While it’s intended to act as a deterrent against theft, a car’s radio code can become more of a nuisance for you when your car battery dies or gets replaced. In order to be able to use your sound system again, you’ll likely need to track down your radio code.

How to find your 2006 Honda Pilot radio code

The good news here: finding your 2006 Honda Pilot radio code is usually a quick and easy process. In some cases, by pressing and holding your car radio’s power button for a few seconds, you might find that a simple reset was all it needed. 
If you’re still prompted for a radio code, the next thing you should do is check your glove compartment. Here, you should be able to find either a Honda-issued card or sticker that lists both your 5-digit radio code and your 10-digit radio serial number. The sticker might be found attached to your owner’s manual or on the inside of the glove box itself.
Once you find it, just turn on your radio and enter your Honda radio code using its numbered buttons. Once you’ve entered the correct code, your sound system access should be restored immediately.

How to look up a 2006 Honda Pilot radio code

If you don’t have any luck finding your 2006 Honda Pilot radio code, there’s still another easy way to retrieve it. To look up your Honda radio code online, you’ll need to have two other numbers on hand:
  • Your
    vehicle identification number (VIN)
    : Your VIN can be found in several different places, like on your dashboard, the label found on your driver’s side door jamb, your vehicle registration documents, and your
    proof of insurance
    card.
  • Your radio serial number: This would also typically be listed on the card or sticker along with your radio code. If you can’t find that, there’s another trick you can try for 2002 and newer Hondas: turn on your car radio, then press and hold down buttons “1” and “6” on the radio at the same time. This should bring your radio serial number up on the radio’s display. If you feel comfortable doing so, you could also carefully remove your car radio and check the backside for a label with the serial number.
Once you have both your VIN and your radio serial number, you can look up your 2006 Honda Pilot radio code online. Here’s how to do it:
  • Enter your Pilot’s VIN, serial number, and other required information
  • Check your email for your confirmation and your 2006 Honda Pilot radio code
That’s it! For further assistance, you can call Honda’s customer service line at 1-800-999-1009 or contact your local Honda dealership.
