Radio code needed after battery disconnection?

Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but after the battery is dis-connected will I need to enter a key code to allow it to work again?

Reason I ask is that i'm used to Ford coded radios and I don't have an owners manual for the civic to double check.

Cheers in advance.

I'm pretty sure even if you needed a code if you called Honda they could help. I know when I had a Rover 400 (Don't extract the Urine) I disconnected and didn't have the radio code, they helped out. Which leads to the question, what is the worst car you've ever owned? you know mine

Had a Datsun 120Y back in the day, was that rotten I was driving one day and the handling went a bit Pete Tong and on inspection the cross member that held the Engine in had snapped on one side Engines were good though.

Nerd fact of the week. The Daf55 was the first car to have a CVT gearbox.

I've only had a licence for 3 years so not really had enough time to buy a proper snotter, started with my mums Focus then bought my previous car, a mountune'd Fiesta ST, that had to make way for the civic as the fuel bill was getting silly, especially considering it wasn't a massively quick car.

they were just as fast in reverse as they were going forward and if them belts went out of sync ( which they did ) it would shake your teeth out above 30 mph

Wern't they air cooled as well ?

Friend went off on his honeymoon back in the early 70's. Confetti got stuck down some vent and the end result was a piston coming through the cylinder head.
