Question about 1986 Honda Accord

Multiple switches/multiple amplifiers

Hello, I'm building a stereo system in my 1986 Honda accord. I am installing 3 Amps, i would like to install a toggle switch for each amp. how do i wiring the switches so that if i turn off one amp I don't turn off all of them? Or is there some kind of comb switch that I can buy that is already wired to do this?

All the amps should be wired directly to the battery, with a toggle switch on each of them. most amplifiers have a SWITCH wire as well, shich is usually wired to your ACC wire on the stereo. instead, run each SWITCH wire to a positive wire through the toggle switch. If done right, you should be able to run each amp on a separate circuit and can turn them on or off as you wish.

I Hooked up my new stereo and cant get any sound. I put the factory Bose back in and the sound works. Hooked up my new stereo to another car and it has sound. Can anyone tell me Why im not getting sound...


If you had a "Bose" sound system - Factory installed - it should have and Amplified System - which means the original stereo will supply power to the Speaker Amps - that is the circuit that didn't get connected and why there is no sound.
I hope that resolves your issue
Thanks

Is there an erg valve on a honda accord 2008 4 cyl


code p0300 refers to--random/multiple cylinder/s misfire detected...Causes---spark plugs---HT leads---injectors---ignition coils ---low compression ---wiring
code p0302 refers to cylinder 2 misfire detected Causes ---engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/fuel system ---ECT/MAF sensors ECM
code po303 refers to cylinder 3 misfire detected Causes Engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/ fuel system ---injector---ECT/MAF sensor ECM The common fault to all is the fuel/system ignition
I would have the injectors checked and have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check pump and fuel regulator valve.

I just bought a 91 Honda accord, and the factory stereo was missing so I went out and bought the stereo installation kit also a new stereo but don't know how to mount without mounting brackets looked...


If you purchased an installation kit it should include universal mounting brackets. Perhaps you do not have an installation kit for installing your new stereo in your Accord. The kits are designed for installation of certain stereos in an Accord; not every model

Have used 1998 accord w/ cobra security. after installing a new stereo myself i'm having electrical problems: dash lights work but systems and gauges lights or indicators do not, no temp,...


ok - here is ur best bet - - - remove the radio - - ask a local radio sales and installer like - best buy - etc - - to see how much to install it - - then have them do it - better yet - put the old radio back in first - and see --

could be other things but for say 70.00 u get ur car right - electronics are today - best left to the pros
some of the common radios have built in amps - these amps can draw way too much power -- so let the pro get at it - worth the money in the long run

My 96 honda accord is giving me three different code readings they are: P0303 cylinder 3 missfire, P0302 cylinder 2 missfire & P1300 multiple missfire detected, How do I fix this problem?


I would start with a full tune up. If it has never been done then that is the best way to start. Make sure that you gap your plugs. NGK plugs are the best for any and all Honda's. Let us know how it goes.

Where is the valet switch for honda accord 2002 lx?


Hi,
Does the vehicle have an aftermarket alarm system? Is the valet switch for this what you are looking for? If so, it depends entirely on who installed it as where they have put it, although it's usually under the dash on the driver’s side. Some alarms have different sequences that you have to go through to put the alarm into valet mode; it's not usually just a switch that you flick. Best to pop into an alarm or stereo installer and see if they can spot it for you, or if the car is immobilized, find out what sort of alarm it is and call an installer for the info on the valet procedure.

1992honda accord has theft problem with stereo system


umm... please explain what the problem is...most honda stock stereos have a code the needs to be entered before you can use the stereo...which the original owner was given. if you pull the battery cable off...the stereo lost power..therefore it needs the code re-entered...otherwise your gonna have to make your own music. you can install an after-market stereo as well to solve your problems if you cant get the code from Honda or the past owner(s) hope this helps.
