Need to replace thermostat on 2003 Honda Odyssey, and need directions. Can you help?


Drain the radiator by removing the drain plug on the lower right side. If the coolant is fairly new, save it and reuse it. While the radiator is draining, find the code for the car stereo. It should be in with the owner's manual or sales paperwork. (You will need this code later because you are going to disconnect the battery and remove it for access to the thermostat.) Remove the battery. Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine to locate the thermostat housing. Loosen the hose clamp and detach the hose. If it feels stuck, try to twist it first--then pull it off.Remove the thermostat cover bolts and detach the housing cover. If it is stuck, tap it with a soft-face hammer to jar it loose. Be prepared for some additional coolant to spill when the gasket seal is broken. Remove all traces of the old gasket. Install a new rubber seal over the new thermostat and install into the housing. Make sure the jiggle valve is on top and the spring side of the thermostat is directed into the engine. Replace the housing cover and bolt up. Replace the radiator hose. Replace the battery. Refill with coolant. Use the stereo code to get the radio to work.

    How do i take out my radio from my toyota corrola


    The Toyota Corolla has been around long enough that many owners find themselves needing to replace the factory stereo. Installing a new stereo in the Toyota Corolla gives improved sound and updated features. Swapping out the stereo in the Toyota Corolla takes basic tools and less than an hour. This article covers models from 1990 to 2000.

    Open the hood and remove the negative battery cable from the terminal. Apply the parking brake and place the car in "D."

      > Remove the trim from around the stereo by prying with your fingers at one corner. Some early models have two screws at the top of the trim piece to remove first. Allow the trim to hang on the drivers side of the dash if it's connected to the cigarette lighter.
      > Locate and remove the four screws holding the stereo in place. Pull the radio out of the dash and disconnect the wires from the back of the head unit.
      To install
      > Connect the wiring harness adaptor to the original harness and let it hang from the dash. Slide the new stereo into the Toyota radio mounting kit, which is a thin metal cover and secure it per the manufacturer's instructions. Most adaptors have screws to hold the stereo in place, however some have clips, which engage automatically.
      >Plug the wiring harness adaptor and antenna wire into the back of the new head unit and push the entire assembly into the dash. Reconnect the negative battery cable and turn the radio on.
      > Ensure all of the stereo controls and speakers are working. Secure the radio in the dash with the original four screws and replace the trim.

    Replace stereo


    If you have the stereo, the easiest way will be to get a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle so you have directions for opening the dashboard, if you haven't figured that part out. Next you'll want to go to walmart or some retailer that sells adapter kits and pick up an adapter mounting kit and wiring connection. This will allow you to use the original wiring harness with your new radio. The adapter for the radio it self may not be needed so check first. If the New radio has a cover plate attachment it may not need an adapter. Most Chryslers do need one and some of the imports but not all. Good Luck

    2002 Chrysler Town & Country - Driver Front Dash Speaker Buzzes


    The first thing I would do is pull the stereo out of the dash and unplug it . If the buzzing stops the stereo is bad get a new stereo. Its not hard to remove the stereo. Right above the cup holder there is a small cover you need a very small screwdriver to remove it . Under that is a few screws take those out then grab the plastic cover that runs around the stereo and pull towards the back window it simply pops off (No screws) After you remove that cover you will see 4 phillips head screws that hold the stereo in remove them. Last slide out the stereo there will be 1 plug with alot of wires that is the power and speakers . Unplug it . The other round plug is the FM antenna

    I need to reactivate a factory stereo after power loss


    Look under all fuse box covers, ash trays and covers under the hood for a code. Pretty good chance it will be there if a tech has ever needed the code in the past.

    How can I replace the stereo of a 2002 dodge caravan with 2001


    The whole front plastic cover over the stereo and heater controls is screwed in with two screws at the bottom of the cover, just above the cupholders. Take out those two screws and then pop off the cover, which is held in place by clips up the sides and at the top. There are four bolt/screws that hold the radio/cassette/cd (whichever you have) in place. Unscrew them and replace the stereo. Plugs SHOULD fit, and if they do just replug it and you're good to go. If the plugs DON'T match up, get a wiring harness from Best Buy or Walmart.
    But be warned! Just because the stereos look VERY similar and fit very nicely into the other spot in the dash, they may NOT have matching wiring plugs. I just put a 2003 Neon CD player into my 2002 Caravan, and the harnesses didn't match up and neither did the antenna.
    Good luck!
