Question about 2001 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I recently removed the stock radio from my 2001 Honda Accord coupe and replaced it with an Alpine CDA-9887 radio and amplifiers. I forgot to remove the 6 CD's from the Honda radio when I removed it. I would like to find out what pins I can connect a 12 volt car battery to to just remove these 6 discs. I need the wiring diagram for this radio. I hate to remove the Alpine radio and reinstall the Honda radio just to remove these 6 discs.

    I have the Honda radio here on my desk along with a 12 volt Optima battery. I counted the pins and there are 20. The outside 4 on each side (2 top, 2 bottom) are larger than the middle 12 (6 top and 6 bottom). I connected a red wire with alligator clips to pin 2 (2nd from left on top) and a black ground wire to pin 20 (on bottom and to far right) and nothing works. Have I done something wrong.

The connector on radio has 8 pins on top, 4 left and 4 right, and 8 in the bottom, 3 left 2 center , 3 right.
On the top row 4th pin from the right is the hot wire (12 volt, ignition)
On the bottom row, 3rd pin from the right is the ground pin.
That is all you need to power up the radio.
Should you have doubts, let me know and i will send you the pin diagram.
I understand that you have no use for the wiring colors, since you wont be pulling the dashboard off again, Regards

    As an afterthought..... should you have the 20 pin connector receptacle on the radio, instead of the 16 pin one, the 12 volt ignition pin is the 2nd from the left on the top row. and the ground pin is the last one on the right, on the bottom row.

    Here is the link to pin diagram, although it indicates 1999-2000 , its the same model as the 2001.

Would like to change the stock radio... how do I do it


THIS IS A COPY OF A POST I SUBMITTED TO SOMEONE WHO HAD A SIMULAR QUESTION REGARDING AN ALPINE BRAND RADIO ISTTALLATION. THE PROCESS IS THE SAME NO MATTER WHAT BRAND THE AFTERMARKET RADIO IS.

Go to the store and buy a mounting kit and wiring harness adapter that are for your car. There are alot to choose from and most are universal and come with instructions. You can get these at wal-mart or best buy. The mounting kit is meant to fill in the empty space left by the new aftermarket radio (your alpine). The alpine will have a metal sleeve around it. take this off and put it in the mounting bracket so it is flush. The sleeve will have little triangle shaped tabs on it. Bend these out so the sleeve cant fall out of the bracket or someone will be able to pull out your radio. Remove your stock radio by pulling off the trim around the radio. This is held on by clips, so be careful. There will be a couple of screws holding in the radio. Remove these and pull the radio out. Behind the radio there will be 1 or 2 wiring harnesses plugged into the radio. Unplug these. Then attach the wiring harness adapters you bought. These plug into the stock harness and have wires at the other end that are labeled. Wire the alpine wiring harness into the harness adapters that you plugged into the stock harness. If you want to you can unplug the harness from the alpine and wire it to the harness adapter before plugging it into the stock harness. The wiring diagram should be on the radio. If not the colors are pretty common.
RED = SWITCHED PWR LEAD (IGNITION)
ORANGE = ILLUMINATION
BLACK = GND
YELLOW = BATTERY LEAD
GREY = FNT SPKR RIGHT(+)
GREY/BLACK STRIPE = FNT SPKR RIGHT(-)
WHITE = FNT SPKR LEFT (+)
WHITE/BLACK STRIPE = FNT SPKR LEFT (-)
VIOLET = REAR SPKR RIGHT (+)
VIOLET/BLACK STRIPE = REAR SPKR RIGHT (-)
GREEN = REAR SPKR LEFT (+)
GREEN/BLACK STRIPE = REAR SPKR LEFT (-)
BLUE = PWR ANTENNA LEAD
BLUE/WHITE STRIPE = REMOTE TURN ON LEAD(FOR SUBWOOFER AMPLIFIER)
There may be RCA jack inputs in the back and these are for the subwoofer amp.
There will be a large black cable in the back and this is the antenna wire. Plug in the antenna wire from the back of the stock radio here. Yu may or may not need an adapter for this depending on the size difference between the wire and the hole it plugs into.
**Please note: if your car has a "premium" sound system that comes stock with an amplifier you will need to attach the power antenna lead from the alpine to the remote turn on lead on the harness adapter. If not when you turn on the radio/cd it will not turn on the stock amplifier and the speakers will not work.
I found this out with my 99 dodge avenger which has an Infinity stock radio. You can pop the trunk and look up at the back dash and see the small amplifier.
Once the radio is wired and the mounting bracket is installed, connect the harness adapter as well as the antenna wire. The new wiring harness adapter makes the wiring a little longer so you may have to stuff them back a little bit. Connect the harness from the alpine back into the back of the radio and slide the head unit into the metal sleeve until you hear a click. Before sucuring the mounting bracket and putting the trim back on it is a good idae to try the radio out so if there is something wrong you dont have to disassemble it again. When you buy the harness and bracket it will say on the packaging "nissan 84-94" or "Honda 83-99" or something similar. Look on the back for a complete list of compatable models

If I'm for sure I don't think your digit code would be with the vin #. I would check your owners manual or ask a Honda mechanic. Hope this helps!?

How do i change my front headlght bulb


I replaced both stock 9006 low-beam bulbs on my 2004 Accord. Despite much info on removing fenderwell splash shields, I was able to open the hood, and reach the passenger side harness, remove plug, twist and remove bulb and reinstall- no problem. Driver's side required removing the battery, but same procedure. No problems, no cuts or bruises. Owners manual is unclear, Hayes 2003-05 Honda Accord repair manual is wrong, and the dealer charges $29.95 per bulb installed. Took me 10 minutes. Tried to save the radio settings with a 9V battery in the power plug (memory-saver) but that didn't work

Need radio code for 2000 honda accord coupe PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!


the only way to get the code is to call a Honda dealer and ask them for it. you must remove the radio and get the #'s of of it. They will probaly ask for the serial # . IF you are lucky they wont charge you, usually they want you to bring the car in and charge you $50 or more to do it. When you call ask for parts and tell them you need a radio code have the serial # ready. Good luck.
