Is there a fuse in the factory stereo of the Honda Accord?


There are two fuses, all in the fuse box. One for the radio itself (which probably is the one that went out) and another one for the night illumination, which works together with the dash lights / dimmer.
The one for the radio is on the passenger side fuse box. Look in the manual for the right location, I think it is #12 or 13

I have a 98 Honda accord I installed a stereo and now the speedomoter lights won't light up?? How do I fix this?? Also the lights on the shifter went out.


There is a dimmer switch to the left of the steering wheel that controls this and also controls the lights in your factory stereo, first make sure it is turned on and your headlights are on, turn up the relay dimmer. If this doesn't work, ask the person that hooked up your stereo to retrace his steps as the stereo may have been the common connection for this and now removed it won't complete the circuit.

What is the pink wire for in the stereo of a 2006 Hyundai Santa fe? and what do I connect the dimmer wirefrom the santa fe to in a new stereo


The pink wire from the stereo unit is often the dimmer wire, and is connected to a power feed from the vehicle's side lights. Not all stereos have a dimmer function however, and may not have this wire available.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.

Car stereo


First make sure you haven't turned the dash lights down so low that you can't tell that they are on. After that look for a wire coming from your headlight switch that is disconnected. Your headlight switch is also a "dimmer" switch and a separate power wire is probably required to operate this dimmer switch connected to your dash lights (including the lights in your stereo) you have probably ran this variable wire to your stereo and inadvertantly disconnected your dash lights.

Dim Display


On newer stereos, you might have to experiment with the "panel" wire.

I just installed a VR3, and discovered that the more voltage on the "panel" wire, the dimmer the display.

With no connection, you get full (daytime) brightness. With full voltage, you blank the display.

I wired mine up to the car's instrument lights through a 10Kohm trim resistor so I could adjust the "night" intensity. But if I dim the car's instrument lights, the stereo gets brighter. Oops.

Older car -- I can't just flip a software bit. ;)

But I gather a lot of new stereos are like this. The display on my (factory) stereo in the Mitsu dims a fixed amount when the lights come on, but doesn't adjust with the car's instrument dimmer.
