To help prevent radio theft, Honda implemented a radio-reset function that causes your radio to lock if it’s removed from a power source. While it has definitely helped reduce theft, it’s also a common nuisance for Honda owners. Follow these steps to reset a Honda Pilot radio:
  1. Turn your ignition to the ON position without starting your engine.
  2. Press the volume control knob to turn the radio on
  3. Wait for 10 seconds, then turn your radio off.
  4. Press and hold the power button until you see Enter PIN Code on your display.
  5. Enter your Honda radio code using the radio preset buttons. You can usually find your code in the owner’s manual, on a sticker in your glove box, or on the Honda website.
  6. Turn your ignition off, then on and test your radio.
Hopefully, these steps can help you fix your Honda radio. But if you’re still having trouble, bring your car to a mechanic or Honda dealer so they identify the bigger problem. And if you’re worried about the cost of professional repairs, offset the price by saving on car insurance with Jerry.
