https://www.hondapartsonline.net/blo...nda-radio-code and I've seen it elsewhere too. It claims it gives you the serial, which you can use to get the code.

Only doing it after a 12V reset explains it.

I see your link regarding grid charger/discharger is marked outdated - do you have a current link anywhere?

Regarding the radio code, it's on a Honda Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card, just like the one for my dad's car was. 66221 (not like I'm worried about someone stealing the radio).

I guess I'll do the reset tomorrow.

I had to replace the 12V in my wife's car, and I was fortunate that the code was written in the maintenance book, in the place where it said "radio code"

Thanks for this post, all. So, can someone help me with exactly how much transmission fluid the HCHII is supposed to take? The owner's manual clearly states the capacity is 3.0 US quarts. When I drain and refill, 3 qts barely registers on the bottom of the dipstick. I usually have to add somewhere around another 10-16 oz. to get it to register in the safe zone. I'm pretty sure I'm checking it correctly - engine fully warm, parked on a level surface, parking brake engaged, run shifter slowly down through all of the gears, then back up to park, pull out dipstick, wipe it off, reinsert dipstick, pull it out and read it. What am I missing? Does anyone have an exact number of quarts or ounces for best fill?

Not sure what you're doing. You should check it in accordance with the instructions in the owner's manual.

http://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/p...6/NC0606OM.pdf

Page 195.

It takes 3 qts.

You'll know if it's low because the start clutch will slip.

Huh. I've been checking transmission fluid in vehicles with the engine running for so long I just assumed it was universal and never thought to check the manual. Wiping egg from face. Thanks much!!

I did a drain and fill of 3qt, and the first drain looks like the OP's "first drain" picture in color. Additionally, the magnet on my drain plug was completely covered with black fuzz.
I did another drain and fill of 3qt a week later; it looks like the OP's "flush #1"picture.
At this point, the magnet on my drain plug had some black fuzz.

Based on my observations and this post, I may do another drain!
i just drained the tranny after Iím guessing WAY to long of an interval since we bought it used. I keep reading about the fill being 3 quarts but when I drained mine, a full gallon came out (5 quarts)! After refilling, I started with 3 but the stick was dry as a bone, added another quart and now dipstick shows within threshold while hot but only with the engine off. Is the cvt supposed to be checked with the engine running or just warm?
