    You found a ten-year-old Accord with a little over 12,000 miles on it (that's roughly 1200 miles per year)? I think I would check with a mechanic on the reliability of that reading, unless you are aware of very unusual circumstances. And have him give up an opinion on the whine as well.

Hey chris, no two cars sound the same, that sound you hear may just be normal for the car, after a few weeks of driving you may not hear it at all, congrats on your purchase, with care and luck you should get 2 to 3 hundred ks of driving, good luck to ya

Dont know security code to tape deck for 97 honda accord


You will need to pull out the radio and look for the serial number. Call your nearest Honda Dealer and ask for service. They should be able to give you the code. Otherwise if your not the original owner, people sometimes write it on the back of the owners manual.

2007 Honda Accord--battery died now radio and clock don't work


Hi. Jumping the battery when the radio is turned on will often cause a problem. I would check the fuses for the radio first as one of them may have blown. Regarding the clock it is blinking and needs to be reset.

Since this is a relatively new car I recommend going to a book store and purchasing the service manual for Honda which includes the 2007 models. This will you how to reset the clock. Then keep the manual in the glove compartment for all future reference.

Good luck.

Radio Code Problem


Can't be sure about a Nigerian Honda but in the USA if this happens:

Try to locate the code. Check your owner's manual or the inside of your glovebox for a sticker. If it is nowhere to be found the only way to get it is to remove the radio and get the serial number from the back of the radio. Tkae that number and your VIN to a Honda dealer. They should be able to get the code for you with this information. They may ask you for your driver's license and registration before doing so.
