ENTERING THE ANTI-THEFT CODE
Any time power is disconnected from the navigation control unit, the 4-digit anti-theft code must be entered on the navigation system display. This 4-digit code can be found on a small code card or sticker in the glove box. Enter the 4-digit code, then select Done.
If the navigation system anti-theft code cannot be found, use the iN (Interactive Network) to look it up. You need the serial number for the navigation control unit to do this. There are two methods to obtain the serial number:
For the latest navigation systems (white- and orange-colored DVDs), you can view the serial number by entering the diagnostic mode (see the appropriate service manual for this procedure). Select Unit Check from the main menu, then the Navi ECU diagnostic screen. This process eliminates unnecessary removal of the navigation control unit to obtain the serial number.
For 2nd-generation navigation systems (identified by the black DVD used with them), the serial number is located on the underside of the navigation control unit.
iN may display more than one code for a given serial number. This is because serial numbers are not unique. You may have to try more than one 4-digit code. If no code is shown, or if the code(s) given do not work in the unit, contact the American Honda’s Warranty department at (310) 783-3240. If the code “0000” (four zeroes) works, then replace the navigation control unit.
When replacing the navigation control unit, be sure to remove the old code card and stickers, and give the client the new anti-theft security code card.
