OK first you need to buy the new switch.
Next you would need a 7mm socket and ratchet. I usually use an extension and a socket and turn the screws by hand. well the first thing you will need to do is remove the screw above the gauges.. next the two screws (one on each side) of the steering wheel . next you will want to losen but not fully remove the two screws (one on each side) below the two you removed.. then you will need to raise the steering wheel then put your fingers along the rubber piece below the steering wheel and pull down.. this will unclip the lower section of the dash. Then you will see two other screws below the top portion and the bottom parts of the dash... take those two screws out being careful not to drop them between the dash. then you will pull and unclip the top portion of the dash.. dont worry it is just clipped together.. and when you pull it apart you will have to disconnect three wires, dimmer, dome, and airbags.. they are very easy clips.. then replace the dimmer and your done! to refix everything --follow steps backwards!

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Check the fuses below the drivers side steering wheel, one of them is blown out after you switched the CD player, make sure the dimmer switch is turned all the way up, make sure all of the wires behind the stereo are taped off with black electrical tape and not touching each other. After you do all that and it still not working then replace the dimmer switch with one from the junk yard for like $5, I see the 1999 Honda Accord in there all the time

    The dimmer switch pops right out of the dash, use a small flat head screwdriver, once you pop it out, unplug the clip

I have a honda odyssey 2001 the light of the panel are not workinkg all the rest of the lights are working i check the fuse and are ok only i did was change the radio and install a new one but did not...

I'm guessing you're talking about the dash light aound the radio. The dash lights around the radio share the same fuse with all the other lights that come on when you turn the parking light on. If the other light are working then your fuses are fine. What i think might have happen was when you took the dash cover off, the bulbs behind it might had burn out. You might want to try new bulbs.

good luck

Radio wont light up.The radio works but the cd player doesnt.This is the factory cd player also

Lighting of the lcd ? Could be an internal radio component. Check the web - seems to be fairly common with the radio ( made by Panasonic) where there is a small resistor that gets fried and results in the loss of the lighting . The CD changer also has problems.. I should know.. It happened to my 03 Accord also.. You can get a remanufactured unit on ebay for < $100 . Also, there are online tutorials on how to remove the radio. Good luck
