Question about 2004 Honda Accord
I have a 2004 Honda Accord. One day while driving the radio just stopped working. We smelled some burning, but it went away and since the radio wont play and everytime I change the fuse it blows right away
There was a recall for the 03-04 Accord radio. It had faulty circuitry that caused the screen to go dim. Check with Honda to see if they'll still honor the recall.

The fuse is blowing because you have a short circuit somewhere. And since you can smell it it must be inside behind the dashboard. Take the radio out...and trace the power connection through the wiring harness,,,maybe it was pinched at some point behind the dash. If you do find the black/scorched mess...you will need to cut that wire and splice in a new piece with crimp-on connectors. Also inspect the wires adjacent to the burnt one to make sure they too didn't get damaged. Please don't splice it in unless the battery cables have been removed. Also "Sniff" the radio, maybe it is what burned on the inside..follow your nose...it always knows. hope this helps.
