After reading some info, it may not be easy I thought.

First look for any stickers on the glove box area for a code, if none are found, you have to get the serial # off the back of the unit and call Honda for the code, and that's usually not cheap. YOu can get the serial # of the unit sometimes by holding down 1 and 6 at the same time you turn it on.
I guess there is a different code for every stereo........

Honda's ingenious idea of a anti-theft radio also prevents owners from using it.

I'm sure other owners must have the same issue. So much for security,huh?

Honda radio codes

Honda uses a 5 digit code number to re-establish the audio system. There should be a card the size of a credit card with your owner's manual with the code number on it. Some dealers will write the number in the glove box, or elsewhere to save trouble. It may also be written in the owner's manual. When you power up the system you will see COdE in the frequency display. Use the preset buttons to punch in the numbers. If you can't find the code call a Honda dealer with the system's serial number,and, probably the VIN. I don't know if there's a charge for this or not. Good luck

I guess i'll contact the dealer. Stupid mistake on my part.
I never thought that one had to go a jig to just clean battery terminals like in the "old" days. Maybe this will be helpfull to others.
Thanks to all for taking the time to reply.
