Question about 2002 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Radio/Clock stopped working but comes back on when I hit a bump

My radio stopped working completely. Before it did, the radio station changed occasionally without me touching it. But it occasionally starts working again when I hit a big bump.
The car also seems to have trouble starting - doesn't start immediately.
Over 120,000 miles on the car but recently had the 120,000 mile routine maintenance done where they replaced timing belt, etc - took the engine apart. I'm wondering if they didn't jiggle something loose. I just need to know where to look.
Please help.
Thanks.

I suspect the problem is with one of the radio circuit boards, but check the connector at the bqack of the radio first, if that is clean and tight then the radio will need to be sent out for repair.

Trying to set time after battery died, not shown in manuel correctly


Usually on older AC-Delco/Remy Radio, press the "set" button and it will take you back to the radio station frequency, then push the left knob inward, then it will take you back to the time again. Before the "set" mode ceases, use the seek and scan buttons to change the minute and hour for the time, until you get to the time you want.


Other models will have the "set" button being a small almost hidden button, you can use a paper clip pin end to depress. Which will initiate the "set" mode, then you can push in the left or right knobs and the time mode will come on. Then using seek rocker switch or the seek and scan buttons the time minutes and hours will start to change.


The last type is where you have to either hold down the set button then use the seek and scan buttons or you have to hold down the set button for about 4 seconds then the clock will go into a blinking or set display mode, for which you can use either the knobs or the seek and scan buttons to produce minute and hour change display on your clock.



Try these methods. I know on older GM vehicles with AC Delco/Remy type radios/stereos, usually there is a "set" button for setting your favorite radio stations to instant numbered buttons, usually up to four or five of them. This same "set" button can be used to set the time. But when you hit the "set" button it will take you to the radio station frequency, not the time. That is when you press in the left knob or sometimes the right knob, and the time display will come on, while it is still in the set mode. Then you can press on the seek and scan buttons, one of them will change your minutes the other one will change your hours, for your clock display time. When you reach the correct time you desire, then hit the "set" button again, which will turn off the set mode. Your clock should start working normally, starting from the time you've set
