:SHOCKED: Hey I was reviewing the paperwork I received with my new EX. In the packet with the owners manual is a service history book. The first few pages of this book is the new car set-up and service. On the very first page was the radio code. I presume that it was there so that the radio could be activated prior to delivery. The problem is I plan on keeping this book in the glove box. So if some thief was to steal my radio said thief would be able to reactivate the radio with the code found in the glove box of my car!!! :banghead: I corrected the problem with a pen. You may want to do the same.

actually a smart move on your part. I don't know how many would want to steal the OEM radio, but crazier things have happened. Nice idea for those that have that code in their car.

I hope you have the number somewhere... If you disconnect your battery, you'll have to reactivate your radio...

Yes, I kept the credit card thingy that they gave me on delivery in my strong box at home. It's in with all the rest of the paperwork that they recomend you not leave in your car. (title, finance contract, anything else that a thief might use to try to convince someone that he was me ect...)

My manual didnt have the radio code in it. The booklet i got came with a seperate card that i keep in my "civic" file folder with the code on it. I have also written the code in the spine of the owners manual on one of the pages.
