NO power to the radio or clock

Did you actually check the radio plug for power, or does the display just not illuminate? I ask because this radio has a little bulb inside that burns out that illuminates the clock, and radio station. You can confirm this by trying to use the radio normally, and trying to 'seek' a station. If you can get it to tune in, it is definitely the bulb. Another way is to shine a nice bright flashlight into the clock face. You should be able to see the stations and clock, that at least will tell you that the radio is working. - Hope this helps =)

Radio wont turn on.

Check fuse first. Then pull the radio and check power. If you have power at the plug, replace the radio. If the radio comes on(or still has a clock) and no sound, look for an amp fuse or replace the amp.

Radio, clock and accessory power not working

Doubt it.
All three components involve a circuit not connected with the key switch. IE this circuit is hot at all times.
If you have the owners manual look at the fuses again. May be fuses under the hood too.

How to i remove the factory stereo from a 2002 honda accord

1) Pry out the clock with a fine screwdriver, it has no screws, take care not to mar the fascia, disconnect both plugs.
2) Take out the radio/ ac fascia by unscrewing the screw that was hidden behind the clock, and the 2 screws at the bottom of fascia
3) Take out the factory radio by unscrewing the whole chassis that supports the radio (4 screws at the corners) . Most stereo replacements will fit into this chassis too. Unplug the connectors, and the antenna plug.
Avoid cutting the cables. Use plug converters whenever possible. This will avoid speaker polarity problems, as well as night lighting, power antenna, memory power feed mix-ups .
4) Dismount the factory radio from the chassis (tray?), in order to reuse it.

You may have the clock and radio power leads reversed. Clock needs to be on a line that is hot with key on or goes to a lead that is only hot with key on.Same goes for lead for power antenna...don't need power there unless car is on. Don't forget...I'm not there so I can only make an educated guess.
Good Luck

Radio and clock doesn't work after replacing blower motor switch

You also have to remember that the stereo has a fuse down by the driver's side door in the panel. I mention that because you didn't so maybe you over looked it? As for the other person having the clock reset AND having little power to windows, check the power comming from the alternator and the battery with a multimeter. Make sure you know what you are doing. It should read anywhere from 11-14.4 volts. Anything less, either of them are going bad. Also, try removing the radio and locate the "battery feed" wire. It;s normally yellow, but I think it's a different color in the Rodeo/Passports. Anyway, just look it up. With the car off, take the multimeter and the positive in the feed wire and touch the negative to a ground (mostly any metal will do). If you are not getting power even with the car off, you have a lose/broken connection somewhere. That wire supplies power to the radio to hold the info while the car is off, such as memory channels/clock/etc. For both of you: also check the power comming from the power wires to the radio, make sure they are around 12-14.4 volts too, then work back from there. If you are getting power, then the radio is dead. Hope this helps.
