The Honda radio code reset error code happens when the radio loses power and then regains power. This can happen if the battery is disconnected or if the car is left parked for a long period of time. When the power is restored, the radio will not work unless the correct code is entered. The code is usually located in the owner's manual, but it can also be found on a sticker on the radio itself. Entering the wrong code can permanently lock the radio.
