A lot of Hondas required the radio to be removed and the chassis number of the radio was then accessible. You then had to call the dealer and they gave you a code to enter in your radio using the numbers on the radio presets of your stereo. Sometimes there is a sticker in the glove box with the radio code but usually it is a card that comes with the owners handbook you recieve when you purchase the car new.
