Question about 2002 Honda Accord
The radio in my 2002 Honda accord 4cyl ex is dead. it started when my battery completely died and I replaced it with the exact same model battery. everything in the car except the radio and the cigarette lighter works. I looked both in the main fuse box and in the one by the steering wheel and neither seemed to have a fuse for the radio and/or the cigarette lighter. any suggestions?
I'm sorry if this sounds a little too vague, but when the exact same thing happened to our Accord, my husband handled it and I wasn't really involved. Someplace you should have a card (It's either in with your papers if you bought the car new or if you bought it used, hopefully the last owners left in the glovebox or ? .) that has a 'security code' on it for 'resetting' the radio, etc. (There's some sort of an auto-shut-off in case someone is trying to steal your radio, etc..). When you follow the directions on the card and punch-in the numbers, it automatically resets and the radio and lighter* come back on (*BTW, I'm not sure if our lighter ever went out...??). If you can't find the card, then you'll have to go into a Honda dealership (They will NOT give out the # over the phone!) and by using your VIN they can look-up your #, although I don't know if they charge for this service or not. Hope this is of some help to you! BEST OF LUCK!
