Question about 2003 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Hello experts. I have the following problem with my Accord 2003DX. It seems that it has to do with the radio or the computer. When the car is not used, the screen of the radio flashes, but not always, and that drains the accumalator. It does not happen immediatly after the car is turned off. It may happen a few hours later or may not happen at all. I would like to fix it by myself and looking for a simple solution, without replacing neither radio nor computer. This problem began to occur more in colder temperatures, but lately in warmer ones too. What I have done so far to temporarily solve the problem, I take the fuse for the radio out. But that is inconvinient, for no lights of radio panel work. Thank you in advance. Tatiana

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. If not I can fix it, drop me a note at

Hello, I recently changed the battery of my honda. When I turned on the car I noticed that the radio, cd player, clock would not work. It says code on the display.

You have to contact the Honda dealer with the VIN# and they will be able to give you the access code for your radio. Just follow your manual in the radio section and this should fix the problem. The VIN# is located on the drivers side looking at the lower side of the windshield.............Hope this helps you out.

I have a 2004 Honda Accord LX. The radio keeps going off and on

My 2003 Accord LX does the same thing. It started about 6mo ago and it becomes more and more often. I just went outside to kick the off from inside the wheel wells and the stereo came on.

Changed my battery in my 98 Honda Accord V6. Radio when turned on shows a code of C. As I hit preset buttons it spells out code then goes to ERR.

lol,sorry to laugh but i truly find it amazing how so many of these so called Guru's especially ones that are supposed "Honda Expert" can pass out so much mis-information and waste peoples valuable time!!!! On any HONDA/ACURA car with stock anti-theft radios/navi units require a 5 digit code(radio), 4 digit for navi units. When the vehicle was originally stocked in as new vehicle there were 4 places the prep tech would have made this code available. A card the size of credit card w/ S/N of device and anti theft code on it would have been placed in owners manual,warrenty packet in glove box(which after several different owners is usually lost),2 small sticker with same info would have been placed in hidden spots on car.As standard these places would be either on interior of glove box lid,on interior of center armrest lid(if available) ,or on inside back of one of the underhood fuse/relay box's.It is also noted and reported through Honda corp.,through dealership computer.if any of these card,stickers are unavailable, call dealership with vehicle VIN # & 70% of the time the dealer can retrieve lock code through computer by Vin number.Very last if all these options fail you, remove radio/or Navi unit and write down S/N of unit and either I or any Honda dealer can retrieve anti-theft code from Honda corperation and get you going again! There is absolutely no way of reprogramming a radio to new code to unit, i would like to apologize for some of the mis-leading information put out by so called experts on here,it makes the the rest of us real experts look bad.Let me know if you need the that code looked up by Vin or RADIO s/n, GOOD LUCK AND THANKS JOEL

Radio code

The Honda dealer where you bought the car would have the code. You will have to bring in the car to the dealership and they will get the code for you for a small fee.
