Why your 1998 Honda Accord needs a radio code

What’s a Honda radio code, and why would you need one? 
Since car radios are one of the most frequently stolen items from vehicles, one protective measure against that is a radio code. If a car radio is disconnected from its power source, the radio will prompt you to enter a code to be able to use it again. 
Unfortunately, that protective measure can become a major inconvenience if your car battery dies or gets replaced. No code, no radio tunes!
Luckily, finding a radio code for Honda Accords is a quick and easy process. You just have to know where to look to find it.

How to find your 1998 Honda Accord radio code

It doesn’t take much to find your 1998 Honda Accord radio code—in fact, you might not need it at all. By pressing and holding the radio’s power button for a few seconds, you may be able to reset the radio without needing to enter a code.
If you’re still prompted for a radio code, your glove compartment is the first place to look. You might have a white sticker that lists your 1998 Honda Accord’s five-digit radio code. You might also find the sticker in the owner's manual.

What if that sticker’s nowhere to be found? You should still be able to find your 1998 Honda Accord radio code—you’ll just need a couple more pieces of information:
  • Your
    Honda VIN
    : You can find your VIN on your dashboard, near the window on the driver side, or on the driver side door jamb. You’ll also find it listed on your
    vehicle registration
    documents and your car insurance card.
  • Your radio serial number: To find your radio serial number on older vehicles like the 1998 Honda Accord, you may have to carefully remove the radio to read the 10-digit radio serial number on the back. If you’re uncomfortable doing this yourself, consider taking your vehicle to your local Honda dealership for help.
Once you have both of these numbers, you’re ready to retrieve the third! Here’s how to get Honda radio codes online: 
If you need further assistance in tracking down your radio code, Honda’s customer service line at 1-800-999-1009 or bring your Accord to your local Honda dealership.
