Just replaced battery on '05 Odyssey Touring. Made sure I dug out the Navi and Radio codes beforehand. Started the car, entered the Navi code - great, there's my neighborhood, works fine.
Next, turned on the radio - "CODE" comes up on the display - that's OK, I'm ready with my official Honda Anti-Theft Identification Card - so I punch in the 5-digit code and, .... wait a minute, "Code Error 1" comes up. No problem, right? I must have hit a button wrong. So I enter the code again and get "Code Error 2" then 3 and 4 and 5 ...... What is up with that?
So I disconnect the battery for half an hour thinking I may just need to reset the system and try again - but, no go ....... !!!!????They gave me the wrong number on my anti-theft card!?!?!!!! How can this be??
So I go to: https://radio-navicode.honda.com/fra...x?theme=Honda. Sure enough they have the same serial number and radio code data that's on my card.
So now its Saturday and my wife and little grandson are without audio, dvd, XM until I can get it to the dealer on a weekday and they can figure it out or somehow reset the system with a new code. They better not try to charge me for this as I am the original owner with an unmodified audio system status post the vehicle's first battery change using the info Honda supplied me.
I don't expect any answers here- just venting.
