I accidentally connected the jumper cables wrong for a brief second, and now my radio does not work. I checked the fuse box on the driver side and the radio fuse is not blown. Any ideas? does it sound like i need a brand new head unit?

Usually circuits have internal protection for this. Call your dealer and ask the service department if this happens and if there is a reset or simple fix.

There is 2 wires for the stereo. a CONSTANT 12V wire and an ignition wire. make sure theirs power going to both. check all the fuses even accessories fuse. you may need a test light and have to remove the stereo out of the dash to check for power. also check the grounds

At start loud grinding for 15 seconds


it sounds like the bendix on starter is going bad. and it will not kick all the way into fly wheel when starting.remove starter and see if it works properly. Test the starter. Mount the starter in a large vise. Using jumper cables, attach the ground cable from a battery to the starter body and a positive cable to the starter positive post, where the main battery cable attaches. Attach a jumper wire from the solenoid-activator connection. Carefully jumper this wire directly to the starter positive post. The starter should spin firmly, and the starter drive-gear forcefully extend. good-day!

Connecting jumper cables the wrong wat around most likely has damaged electronic components such as a radio and computer.
Check the fuse box and replace any blown fuses.
If you still have problems then get an auto electrician to fix your car.

No power to RADIO


There should be two fuses - one for the memory and one for the radio power. Check the book and see if there is a second fuse - let me know if you can't find it.

How to replace the battery without reset the radio's code?


A simple way is to take another 12 volt battery and connect it with jumper cables right onto the existing battery connections. Connect positive + to positive and negative - to negative which is parallel wiring. Now remove the connections from the battery you are going to replace without knocking the connections from the donor battery loose. Once you get the new battery installed, simply disconnect the jumper cables. Make sure you connect the cables as described above to keep the voltage at 12 volts and do not connect them in series. Connect them wrong an you will have 24 volts and may damage your electronics. If for some reason you loose the code it is simple to get the code from Honda. Just go to the Honda Owners link below and register your Honda. You will need the VIN # off your car. They will provide the code free of charge.

The radio, windows and headlights aren't working.


If my memory serves me, this vehicle has a Body Control Module fitted which takes care of these and many more functions. By connecting the jumper cables incorrectly, this module may have been damaged and will need to be checked and or repaired by qualified persons. The radio may also have been damaged by incorrect jumper cable connection . To be honest, incorrect cable connections can destroy most electronic devices in the blink of an eye and can be very expensive to replace damaged parts. My advice would be to take the vehicle to a qualified auto electrician and have all the vehicles systems checked including ABS brake systems, Airbag systems etc.

Leave the jumper connected for about 10 minutes at least to get the battery some charge. If that doesn't work, wait another 10 minutes.

Remember that when you first connect the jumper cable, the good car is charging the battery AND trying to start the car.
