Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1991 Accord, stereo stolen, now no heater fan or cig lighter

The crooks simply unplugged the factory harness, so no wires were cut. Is the stereo on the same circuit as the heater fan and cig lighter? I checked all fuses and all are good. I have no voltage to heater fan. I can't believe Honda would wire these so the circuit would be completed with the simple plug-in of a radio...???

    Ummm...no, just visually. Good point. I will test with my Fluke meter. I am a pretty sharp mechanic..build racing engines and race sprint cars..but electrical and I usually are not very good friends! Picked up one of the Chilton manuals today but the diagrams are so small my 48 y/o eyes cant do it. Taking it to work tomorrow to blow them up with the copier. Any ideas?

    Yeah, they probably shorted out the lighter with the stereo. It's gotta be fuse.

    That's pretty bizarre. Did you check your fuses with a test light, or just visually? Maybe try switching one fuse to the other, and see if it works.

While snagging your tunes, these guys may have disconnected a ground wire, pull out the heater fuse, check to see if 12v is getting to the fuse at box, if so and the fuse is good,it's a ground or switch issue,they probably have a book on your car at the library with the wiring diagram, they have a copier too

Toyota Corolla seca1998 radio/cig not working, replaced fuse for cig and it has worked but for no more than a minute or 2, keeps blowing. Assuming it's something to do with a shortage between the cig fuse...


hi there. ok what I advise is to simply disconnect the cig lighter, then replace fuse and turn on stereo. this will tell you which is causing the problem. if fuse blows its the stereo if fuse is good then its the cig lighter. you may have had a child etc put coins in the slot thinking it a slot machine...ive been there before but sadly it was only pennies....they rattle around in the stereo and hit electrical parts. also look into the cig lighter hole and see if a coin or similar stuck down there bridging the sides with the bottom... simply use your finger to check this and not a screwdriver to short it again.

hope this helps you.

Tip

How to install Radio in Honda Accord


Things You'll Need:

* Stereo
* Wiring harness
* Dash kit
* Phillips screwdriver
* Heat shrink
* Lighter
* Wire strippers
* Wire caps


In order to install A Radio first follow steps of Removing the Factory Radio


#1
Open the center console, and you'll see two phillips screws at the bottom. Unscrew both of them.

#2
Remove the drink tray, and unscrew three more phillips screws. The center console is now loose enough to move.

#3
Pull the center console back a few inches to expose two more screws under the plastic part of the gear shift. Remove these screws.

#4
Pull the ashtray out of the dash, and you'll see one more phillips screw. Remove this screw and pull off the plastic panel around the factory stereo.

#5
Locate the metal tray under the factory pocket (below the stereo), and pull it out of the dash. There will be two phillips screws holding it in place; remove those, and then pull the stereo out of the dash. You'll need to unplug the wiring harness that is plugged into the back of the radio.


Now Install The New Stereo

#1
Assemble the dash kit, as shown in the instructions. Put it into the dash where you just took the stereo out. There will be a rectangular opening, and a pocket underneath. The opening is where the radio will go.

#2
Secure the dash kit by screwing in the one screw in the ash tray, and the two in the opening of the panel.

#3
Insert the metal cage that came with the stereo into the opening above the pocket. Ensure that the fit is flush with the pocket. Using a screwdriver, bend the metal tabs upward, which holds the metal cage in place.

#4
Start wiring the stereo harness to the wiring harness. Match wires color by color until all of the wires are paired. For example, if you find a purple wire coming out of the aftermarket wiring harness, plug it into a purple wire from the factory harness. You aren't touching any of the wires in your dash on this step, you are simply wiring the new stereo to the wiring harness.

To connect these wires you'll want to place a piece of heat shrink over one of the wires, strip the ends, twist both ends together, and then pull the heat shrink over the exposed metal parts of the two wires. Heat the heat shrink with a lighter until it shrinks and forms a tight bond between the two wires. When done correctly, you won't be able to pull the wires apart.

#5
Plug the aftermarket harness into the factory plug, and insert the radio back into the dash. If you find wires that don't have a match, be sure to cap them so that the ends aren't exposed. Exposed wires are what cause shorts and electrical problems.

#6
Work in reverse order to put the dash back together. The radio won't be secure in the dash until the dash is put back together.

Hope this helps

Thanks

Blinkers on 1997 accord quit working after taking stereo out


I assume you removed stock stereo to replace with aftermarket. I assume you have checked the fuses. Did you cut the factory wiring or did you use a wiring kit that plugs into the factory wire harness?

Stereo was stolen wires were cut now a/c and blinkers not working


cheapist way is too go to your local junk yard and get the items of a clunker? be sure you cut the harness to the radio ac etc so you can match up the wires ? remember you need to write down the seriel and model # off the junkyard radio so you can call the dealer and get the radio anti theft code its 5 digits like 25143 etc,, they have that info if you call the dealer

Wireing in car stereo accord 2006


good morning and welcome to fixya.

are you installing the factory radio or an aftermarket radio? you can purchase a wire harness for this vehicle that will plug into the factory chassis harness without cutting the harness connector. if your connector is missing the wires in the aftermarket harness are color coded the same as the wires on the factory side. check best buy or crutchfield.com those guys at crutchfield are really great. good luck and let me know if i can help anymore. thank you

Cooling fan


Yes you need to unplug the heater and use the heater plug to apply 12v.you can get your 12v from the accessory or cig lighter plug.Do you have an old appliance that you plug into the socket/if so cut appliance off and check wich is positive wire.Make sure to check the blower motor as well,no good blowing it up if its still ok.
