(The gear shift is in the way as shown, it needs to be moved all the way dow.)
Remove the blank filler plug (A) using a small flat blade screwdriver.
Use the hole to pull the panel out a little so a big flat blade screwdriver can be used
to pry the center dash panel so it's no longer fixed to the dash. But, there are three
cables that hold the center panel and they need to be removed by squeezing the release.
The rear climate Control switch connector that stays with the van has a release button (C) that needs to be pressed
to remove it from the back of the center dash panel.
This is the one to the upper right of the radio.
The dome light switch connector that stays with the van is to the lower right of the radio.
Press the button (D) to release it.
The emergency flasher switch connector is at the upper left of the GPS panel.
Press the release button (E) to release it.
The Radio and Navi GPS can now be moved out and tipped so the yellow serial number
label can be read to an assistant who can read it back to confirm it's correct.
Write the GPS & Radio serial numbers (not the unlock code) into the owners manual.
If someone steals the radio or GPS unit they will have easy access to the serial numbers,
so there's no comprimise of security by writing them in the owners's manual.
Then go to the Honda Code web page (with your VIN, zip code, telephone number and
serial numbers for both the Radio and Navi GPS) and the their unlock codes.
With the radio showing Code 6 you need to press a number key to cycle it back to accepting
the new code. Rather than pressing a random number, press the first digit of the unlock code.
Confirm that the radio (or GPS Navi) is working.
(If not working then it's easy to look again at the serial number sticker so it can be correctly written down.)
Now install the 6 screws but leave them loose unitl all 6 are installed.
Tighten the 6 screws.
Snap the three connectors into the center panel.
Use the palm of your hand to seat the center panel.
Reinstall the plug with the notch down.
