Car battery died, the radio's anti-theft mechanism kicked in.

Now it won't turn on. When I try, it asks me to enter a code, and I have no fucking idea what it is.

Do I have any options besides taking it to a Honda dealer?

    Last time this happened, they just gave me the code over the phone. It was a dealership I'd already used, though, so they knew I owned the car. I'm not sure if they'd do it if you just randomly call one up.

    I guess I can call the dealer from which I purchased the car back in 2004.

    You should also be able to get the code from the Honda Ownerlink website.

    You'll need the VIN in most cases, IIRC.

    There could well be a charge for this if you ring the dealership. If you bought the car used, go through all the various manuals and logbooks. I found the code to my old car radio scrawled along a random page in there when this happened to me.
