Why your 2010 Honda Fit needs a radio code

If someone breaks into your Honda and steals the radio, they won’t be able to get it to work in another car without the unique radio code assigned to your vehicle. 
These codes are great for security purposes, but sometimes they can be a nuisance. 
Whenever it’s been disconnected from the battery, your radio will shut down and blink the word CODE at you. You’ll need to input your 2010 Honda Fit radio code before you can listen to your favorite tunes again. 

How to find your 2010 Honda Fit radio code

Look for a white sticker in your glove box

Begin by checking your Fit’s glove box for a white sticker that says “Anti-Theft Radio Code,” followed by a code of five or six digits.

Check the owner’s manual

If you can’t find the sticker or it has been peeled off, your next step should be to look in your Fit’s owner's manual. The sticker may be on the cover of the manual or placed on a card inside it.

Look up the radio code using your VIN and the radio’s serial number

Honda’s vehicle identification number (VIN)
is an alpha-numeric code consisting of 17 numbers and letters that you’ll likely find:
  • At the bottom of the driver’s side windshield
  • On your vehicle title
  • On your insurance card
  • On your registration documents 
Finding your radio’s serial number is a bit more complicated:
  • Put your key in the ignition and turn to the On/Accessory position. Do not start the engine.
  • Hold down the 1 and 6 preset buttons on the radio at the same time. Hold them down for about 5-6 seconds.
  • Reach over and press the radio’s On button. Be sure that you are still holding the 1 and 6 preset buttons at the same time.
  • On the radio’s display, you should now see the 10-digit serial number for the radio.
Now that you have both the radio serial number and your Honda Fit’s VIN, you can use this information to find your 2010 Honda Fit’s radio code by:
  • Inputting the VIN and serial number into Honda’s
    online lookup tool
  • Calling 1-800-999-1009 and sharing the VIN and serial number
  • Bringing your Honda to the nearest dealership and providing them with the VIN, serial number, and proof of ownership
Once you have located the radio code, input it into the radio using the radio preset buttons. Your radio should begin working immediately. 

How to reset a Honda radio after changing the battery

  • After 10 seconds, turn the radio off again.
  • Press and hold the power button until the radio display turns on.
  • If you see the Enter PIN message displayed on your radio, input your radio code using the radio preset buttons.
  • Once you enter the code, your radio should reset.
