Please fill out the following to ask a question.

MAKE: Honda
MODEL: Accord
YEAR: 2002
MILES:
ENGINE: some kind of I-4
DESCRIBE ISSUE.... The battery was changed out and right after that the clock was off, had to be reset, and the radio is inop. Radio displays "Err 2". How do we reset that? A quick peek in the Owner's Manual didn't turn up anything.

Radio must come out. Call your local dealer. There are numbers in rear part of radio that the dealer requires. put radio back together. Follow the prompts the dealer gives.

Really? That seems rather an extreme requirement for just a battery disconnect/replacement. Can I get a "second opinion"?

Bill: I am not familiar with that vehicle's anti-theft device or if it even has one.

On some cars, if the anti-theft device was turned on by the owner with a pass-code # and you do not have that #, it IS a dealer expensive reset.

It is to help prevent thieves from stealing your radio, since it is inop after they remove it and have therefore disconnected the power.

I searched "Honda radio err 2 " and got lots of info. Go for it.
