In order to install A Radio first follow steps of Removing the Factory Radio

#1
Open the center console, and you'll see two phillips screws at the bottom. Unscrew both of them.

#2
Remove the drink tray, and unscrew three more phillips screws. The center console is now loose enough to move.

#3
Pull the center console back a few inches to expose two more screws under the plastic part of the gear shift. Remove these screws.

#4
Pull the ashtray out of the dash, and you'll see one more phillips screw. Remove this screw and pull off the plastic panel around the factory stereo.

#5
Locate the metal tray under the factory pocket (below the stereo), and pull it out of the dash. There will be two phillips screws holding it in place; remove those, and then pull the stereo out of the dash. You'll need to unplug the wiring harness that is plugged into the back of the radio.


Now Install The New Stereo

#1
Assemble the dash kit, as shown in the instructions. Put it into the dash where you just took the stereo out. There will be a rectangular opening, and a pocket underneath. The opening is where the radio will go.

#2
Secure the dash kit by screwing in the one screw in the ash tray, and the two in the opening of the panel.

#3
Insert the metal cage that came with the stereo into the opening above the pocket. Ensure that the fit is flush with the pocket. Using a screwdriver, bend the metal tabs upward, which holds the metal cage in place.

#4
Start wiring the stereo harness to the wiring harness. Match wires color by color until all of the wires are paired. For example, if you find a purple wire coming out of the aftermarket wiring harness, plug it into a purple wire from the factory harness. You aren't touching any of the wires in your dash on this step, you are simply wiring the new stereo to the wiring harness.

To connect these wires you'll want to place a piece of heat shrink over one of the wires, strip the ends, twist both ends together, and then pull the heat shrink over the exposed metal parts of the two wires. Heat the heat shrink with a lighter until it shrinks and forms a tight bond between the two wires. When done correctly, you won't be able to pull the wires apart.

#5
Plug the aftermarket harness into the factory plug, and insert the radio back into the dash. If you find wires that don't have a match, be sure to cap them so that the ends aren't exposed. Exposed wires are what cause shorts and electrical problems.

#6
Work in reverse order to put the dash back together. The radio won't be secure in the dash until the dash is put back together.

Hope this helps

Thanks

I have 1993 honda accord im try to swap a 2000 honda civic radio but my honda accord all we have for speakers cables are red blue green yellow and white,i can't figure it out wich one goes were the 2000...


All cars with 4 speakers have 8 speaker wires (4 positive and 4 negative). The colors of the wires for these two cars are not the same. The only way to know which wire goes where is to get wire diagrams for both cars. Before cutting up your wire harness, check that the radio you're installing will bolt into your car and fit. Just swapping the mounting bracket may not work.

Hi my 1996 Honda accord radio need a code to play can anyone tell me that code and how to use it.


copy the vin number and call the local dealer - also ask for any recalls --- then also ask for the code - if the radio came with the car they should give it to u in person or on the phone - if the radio didn't come with the car -well that will require taking the radio to a honda dealer and going from there -

Dont have my access codo for the stereo


What you will have to do is either take the radio out and check to see if the code is on the back of it, or take your vehicle VIN # to the dealer along with proof of ownership of said vehicle and they should be able to provide you with the code, im sure for a fee.

Replaced battery in 1996 Honda Accord which deactivated radio.


You need to code ..punch in code then power radio up and it will work. For a fee if its the original radio for this car the code can be retrieved by the dealer. If you entered to code incorrectly more than 4 times you will need to disconnect battery for 30 second and re-enter code. good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
