2nd display background changes from black to white at intervals
I bought a used 2005 Honda civic si hatchback with about 60,000 miles. This radio had been installed (it appears to be a professional install, with amp for sub only). After about 3 months (4,000 miles), my 2nd display started appearing to be switching/changing from black to white (or as if it were changing from a nightime to daytime display) on an interval basis of approximately 15 seconds. Yet, after any button is pushed the display reverts to the black (nightime) display, & will remain with this display for about 30 seconds before reverting back to the 15 second intervals. I have an owners manual of of the internet, but have been unable to find anything to solve this problem.
Re: 2nd display background changes from black to white at...
The change in the backgroung color of the OEL display is totally normal. This funtion lets the display works in two modes rather than only one to prevent OEL display damage, it is like a screen saver. I had the same model I bought

You are one of the many unlucky people who have an anti-theft system in the OEM radio that locks it when you improperly remove it, or if it loses power for too long, and unfortunetly there is no easy or free way to solve this problem. You will need to go to your local Honda dealer and have them unlock the radio for you. Only a dealer can obtain the unlock code for a specific radio from the Honda support center. And of course, they will charge you for the service. Just how much they charge depends on the dealer. If you want another alternative though, you can always take the OEM radio out of the car and replace it with an aftermarket model, like a Kenwood, Pioneer, Alpine, Sony or the like. Some models will cost about the same ammount that the dealer might charge for unlocking the radio. And the aftermarket models will never ask for a code to make it work again after you unplugged the battery.
