How do I get the radio code for a Honda Civic?

I bought a 2019 Honda Civic Si from a private seller. While he said everything was in tip-top shape, he admitted that I needed to replace the battery. After I replaced it, I couldn't access the radio because it needed a code. How do I get the radio code for my Honda Civic?

Answer
In newer models of the Honda Civic Si, the radio resets itself when you switch out the battery. But the good news is that you don’t need a radio code to fix the issue in most cases. Just press and hold the power button on the radio to reset the system without the need for a code.
If this doesn’t work for some reason, you still have two options:
  • Take your Civic to the Honda dealership.
  • Call Honda at 1-800-999-1009. If you provide the customer service agent with some personal information and the vehicle identification number (VIN), they should be able to give you the radio code.
