Radio anti-theft code?

Hi there, just a quick question. I am going to fit the interior footlighting kit this weekend, in the instructions it says to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery before fitting and that you should record your anti-theft code for the radio before doing this. I have the standard fitted radio/cd player for the 2012 Civic, is there a code for this model? I though it was only after-market radios that had this code as an anti-theft measure and that fitted radio units like mine didn't because thiere is a very low chance of them being stolen. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

You definitely need the code-even for the integrated units. If the code is nowhere to be found the dealer can provide it to you.

The 8th gen didn't have one but the I-MID may need one.

Have this on my HRV too - unfortunately someone pushed lots of buttons on it before they told me the radio wasnt working!

Will it reset itself if I disconnect the battery for say 15 mins?

No, it will prompt for the code the first time the power is restored.
The code is entered via the preset buttons 1-6. My dealer threw out the sticker that was meant to be stuck in the owners manual folder. Fortunately, the code was written on the pre-delivery checklist.

Recently had to install the footwell lighting kit and disconnect the battery. On powerup, the radio didn't ask for the code this time, but said something like hold down the power button. Read somewhere that as long as the radio is matched to the car (probably ECU), then it won't ask for the code.
