There may not be a wire in the dash, the connection depends on the shift lever's possition and usually a switch near the shift lever that turns the reverse lights on. If there is actually a reverse light on the dash, look for the wires to and from that light.

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

Reverse light wire under the dash


The reverse light wire will not be under the dash, there will be a constant live feed from the fuse to the reverse light switch on the gearbox, that is no good for you. You need to take a power after the switch, that's live when reverse is selected. You may be able to pick this wire up from the loom, loom runs down the left hand side of the vehicle. Look at the wire colour to the reverse light at the rear and trace in the loom. at the front kick panel

I have a 2004 Lexus RX330 and last week the backup camera stopped working for two days then it worked for a day and now it is again not working. Here is the problem when I put the car in reverse it is as...


With a backup camera I installed on my wife's Pathfinder, there was a power wire that connected to the backup light power. So when the backup lights came on in reverse, the camera got power, sent a video signal to the dash radio screen, and it would automatically switch to that input. You might have a bad wire/connection supplying power to the camera.

Where can i find a good spot under the dash to tap into reverse


If what you need is a 12v feed, that will activate the camera when the
truck is in reverse. Splice into the violet/black b.u. lamp wire. There
should be one on each side. Hope this helps.

Wiring diagram for reverse light


Splice the camera power wire into one of the backup light bulb sockets at the rear of the car. Make sure there is a good ground connection to the camera housing too. It's best to add a ground wire so there will never be a power problem at the camera.
