I replaced my battery today. As the electrical system reset, it asked me for a code to access the radio. I can't find a discussion about a radio code in the owner's manual.
Can any of you help?

My 2013 Touring resets itself after a battery reconnect. The instruction is described in the Owner's Manual. Involves the power button and engine start. I'm not at the manual or I'd find it for you.

On 2012-2015, as long as your car has its original audio unit, no code needed. Just hold the power button for a few seconds.

I recently disconnected the Neg. battery terminal on my 08 Pilot to clear a CEL light/code.

I kept the reset #'s on the card in the clear plastic bag that I keep the original owners manual in. 55562?

Anyways, I think there is a work around, like others posted as well.

I got a code prompt on restart, and that triggered the in-car search for the code. None found in the easy-to-access expected places. As a last resort, I decided to RFTM, and found the key-plus-power button sequence that caused the head unit to grab its code from the PCM. This works so long as you have the original radio and PCM installed.

I'm pretty sure the code is posted on the underside of the fuse panel lid in the passenger side of the engine bay.
