Where do you plug a scanner to diagnose a problem in a 1996 Honda Accord


The obd 2 port in my '96 Honda accord ex is behind the ash tray, you have to take out the ash tray to get to it. Hope this helps! :)

How to install Radio in Honda Accord


Things You'll Need:

* Stereo
* Wiring harness
* Dash kit
* Phillips screwdriver
* Heat shrink
* Lighter
* Wire strippers
* Wire caps


In order to install A Radio first follow steps of Removing the Factory Radio


#1
Open the center console, and you'll see two phillips screws at the bottom. Unscrew both of them.

#2
Remove the drink tray, and unscrew three more phillips screws. The center console is now loose enough to move.

#3
Pull the center console back a few inches to expose two more screws under the plastic part of the gear shift. Remove these screws.

#4
Pull the ashtray out of the dash, and you'll see one more phillips screw. Remove this screw and pull off the plastic panel around the factory stereo.

#5
Locate the metal tray under the factory pocket (below the stereo), and pull it out of the dash. There will be two phillips screws holding it in place; remove those, and then pull the stereo out of the dash. You'll need to unplug the wiring harness that is plugged into the back of the radio.


Now Install The New Stereo

#1
Assemble the dash kit, as shown in the instructions. Put it into the dash where you just took the stereo out. There will be a rectangular opening, and a pocket underneath. The opening is where the radio will go.

#2
Secure the dash kit by screwing in the one screw in the ash tray, and the two in the opening of the panel.

#3
Insert the metal cage that came with the stereo into the opening above the pocket. Ensure that the fit is flush with the pocket. Using a screwdriver, bend the metal tabs upward, which holds the metal cage in place.

#4
Start wiring the stereo harness to the wiring harness. Match wires color by color until all of the wires are paired. For example, if you find a purple wire coming out of the aftermarket wiring harness, plug it into a purple wire from the factory harness. You aren't touching any of the wires in your dash on this step, you are simply wiring the new stereo to the wiring harness.

To connect these wires you'll want to place a piece of heat shrink over one of the wires, strip the ends, twist both ends together, and then pull the heat shrink over the exposed metal parts of the two wires. Heat the heat shrink with a lighter until it shrinks and forms a tight bond between the two wires. When done correctly, you won't be able to pull the wires apart.

#5
Plug the aftermarket harness into the factory plug, and insert the radio back into the dash. If you find wires that don't have a match, be sure to cap them so that the ends aren't exposed. Exposed wires are what cause shorts and electrical problems.

#6
Work in reverse order to put the dash back together. The radio won't be secure in the dash until the dash is put back together.

Hope this helps

Thanks

How do i install a sound system into a 1986 honda accord?


is there a factory radio already installed or just a cover plate, if there is a cover plate use a very small screwdriver to pop the plate out (it ha two clips) you can also use a small pry tool); if there is a factory radio installed you must go under dash behind radio with a 8mm 1/4 inch drive socket with extension and remove the two screws out of the radio ,rear part of radio; if there is a center console you must remove the 2- 4 side screws and two screws in the armrest section inside or on the rear side of the console, slide it back and remove console then the radio. sometimes you have to remove the ash tray pull out; and remove the three screws in the black metal area of the ash tray mount. to remove the radio push it out from behind and it will pop right out. if your putting in an aftermarket radio not a honda radio; you can buy an electrical adapter from pep boys or other automotive supply house to attach to your wiring harness so you do not have to cut any wires. usually honda places a speaker and wiring diagram on their radios . good luck

Start with the rear console. Two screws on the sides, then open the console and pry up the plate in the bottom.   Remove the screws under the plate.  Pull emergency brake lever. Remove cup holder insert. Three more screws to remove. Now the console will come out when you lift it and pull it back out of the clips. Next remove the ashtray. One screw behind the ash tray two more for the cover. Disconnect wires. the stereo is accessible.

Honda Removal of factory radio 1991 Accord lx


start by removing the console. there should be four screws that hold it in; two on each side; one in the front and one in the rear. you may have to take the gearshift knob of if the car is manual trans.then, remove the ash tray. there are two screws at the front of the ashtray receiver and one at the back.with the ashtray and slide removed, take the bezel off of the radio. there should be two screws behind or above the air outlet vents on top andn two screws in the under the center dividing rail. you may have to pop out the air outlets to get to the screws. there may also be a screw at the bottom of the bezel in the center.with the bezel removed the only thing that holds the radio in at that point is two screws that come up from underneath where the ashtray receiver was. take out those two screws and the radio should pull out from the front. Be sure to disconnect the antenna lead and the connector from the back of the radio before pulling on it too hard or you'll damage one or the other.hope that helps

I want to remove the stock stereo


Remove the ash tray, if I remember correctly there are three or four screws that mount the ash tray bracket (two are vertical and require a very short screwdriver). WIth this bracket removed, it exposes the bracket that mounts the radio, two or three screws there as well, then the radio just slides out of the dash. The radio will pull out far enough to be able to disconnect the wiring and antenna cable.
