1993 Honda Accord loosing power to radio

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.

SOURCE: battery ran radio/clock don't work. flashes Error.can this be reset?

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.
good luck

SOURCE: clock, power locks, power windows and radio not working

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.

SOURCE: clock and radio doesn't light up when car turned on

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.

SOURCE: radio, clock and interior lights don't work. all fuses are good.

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.

Clock wont turn on

USA car, not all cars are wired the same. (my answers are USA)
ok you lost power to the clock (factory clock?)
so check ALL fuses.
the clock as about 3 pins.
1: ground.
2: Park lamp , 12v or less if dash dimmed in park mode.
3: power to clock.

if ground reads 12v, the ground is open
if #3 is not 12v, that feed wire, is dead.
the feed wires are called Honda, power distribution
the schematic is free for honda's (use a voltmeter to trace the voltage drop) (cut wires, for alarm or other hacks)

its there, see the clock pages.

When driving at a steady speed (generally I drive 60 mph on hwy) driving along fine and then the tach will jump 500 rpm and then back down to the usual 2300. Can happen several times in a row for several...

I had this happen on another car and it turned out to be a loose connection on the tacho wiring. Fixing the poor connection fixed the problem.

I had the same problem on my 1999 Honda Accord 4 cyl. It was the ignition switch. I received a letter from Honda regarding a recall on the ignition switch and had it replaced. 3 years after replacement it would turn off again & this time I purchased part from eBaby & replaced it myself. It hasn’t stalled since.

1993 Honda Accord LX turns off for no reason.

Your main relay is shorting out. It's located under the dash on the driver's side.
