Question about Honda Accord
During sporadic times of driving or being parked my radio will cut out and turn off entirely. When it does this I noticed the time-clock on the dashboard changes as well. Similar to it being reset. I'm unsure if this is a wiring problem under the hood or if it is a wiring problem in the radio console. I'd greatly appreciate any tips I can get since I am such a "newbie" to car radios. And in part it grows aggitating to have to redo my presets all the time with my face plate. Thanks
I would be very surprised if it wasn't a loose wire, and the ground wire is the most likely culprit, so I would check the ground for the radio wiring first. If it's an aftermarket unit, I strongly suggest grounding directly to the dash frame instead of through the harness adapter I hope you installed it with. Most of the time you'll be fine to wire through the harness adapter, but sometimes it just doesn't work out due to the company trying to make an adapter to fit too many models. Hope this helps.

try taking the radio out and looking on the top for the parts number. call Honda and tell them what is going on and they will give you a 4 digit code that will reset the radio. i had the same problem with my 05 civic, did that and it worked for me.

for the check engine light you will have to borrow a OBD2 code scanner from your local auto parts store and find out what the code is. although it may be related to: for your electrical problem there is a blown 10 or 15 amp fuse. just check your fuse box for one that is blown. there may be more than one. replace with same-amperage fuse and see if it happens again.

I used pliers to pull out the entire plastic shroud around the fuse, then put the fuse into the shroud and then plugged the whole assembly back in.

For all those who have a situation where the interior courtesy lamps and radio don't work in a ford contour: After dozens of uncomfortable minutes checking fuses under the hood and under the dash I realized the problem wasn't the fuzes but instead it was the courtesy lamp relay in my 2000 ford contour. A $6 part from O' Reilly's (R6026 or V09174) and voila! Interior lights are on and I can finally get that Disturbed disk out of the CD player. It was real fun contorting my body into positions not intended for any human to access the fuse panel under the dash (just above where your left leg would be when driving). Best of luck to all. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
