How to Retrieve Radio and Navigation Codes

DCH Montclair Acura How To Retrieve and Navigation Codes

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

Every automobile has a unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) that contains information about that vehicle. You can find your 17-digit VIN:

  • At the base of your vehicle's windshield, on the driver's side
  • On your vehicle's registration
  • On your insurance statement or proof-of-insurance card
  • On your Honda Financial Services statement
  • On new owner surveys or customer satisfaction surveys sent by American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
  • Valid VIN numbers use the letters A-Z and numbers 0-9, except for the letters I, O, and Q. If the VIN is not working properly, check to see if letters and numbers have been accidentally inverted. Make sure the letter O was not entered in place of the number 0. Also, make sure the correct number of characters has been entered.
Phone Number and ZIP Code Matching Those on File

For security purposes, we verify ownership by comparing the phone number, zip code, and VIN you enter with those we have on file. Unless you have updated these values through Customer Services, the phone number and zip code will be those on file at the time the vehicle was purchased.
