    O.K thank you. I guess I will still have to go to a dealer to remove the radio. I am told that there is a special tool required.

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 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 always knows. hope this helps.

My radio and c/d player will just shut off out of

There is a factory default with the radio circuit board in radios installed in 2003-2004 Honda Accords. Honda will replace or repair the radio free of charge on and extended warranty. The radio will eventually fail for good. I know, as the one in my 2004 Accord failed in March of this year. My Honda dealer replaced the radio with a reconditioned unit absolutely free. Contact you local Honda dealer.

I have no power to the the radio

You will have to chase your power wire back to the fuse panel and/or the battery itself. The burning smell was more then likely the main power cord burning up. Replace it and it should all work well.
