How to install Radio in Honda Accord

Things You'll Need:

* Stereo
* Wiring harness
* Dash kit
* Phillips screwdriver
* Heat shrink
* Lighter
* Wire strippers
* Wire caps

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Hello, I am driving a mazda tribute 2L, model 2003, its radio is is not producing sound but if i press the ta key the radio will play for almost 5seconds and off. So what could be the problem.

bad ground or what I suspect is that the accessory power wire is damaged should be orange, yellow, or red. It is the smaller of those three wires. Pull the radio and check to see if it is getting power on those three wires with the key turned on.

Why are there three dark green radio wires in the 2002 gmc sonoma

According to autozone online, there are two black wires for ground, a dark green to key power, orange to batt power, gray to dash lights, dark blue and dark green to steering wheel controls when equipped, a purple-while for light dimmer and gray to computer data link.
The dark green that has voltage powers the radio and the orange is for the station memory. The gray wire with power when the dash lights are on is for the radio light.

How does radio hook up

The stock radio has two electrical plugs and the anneena wire plugs in and theirs a grond wire that goes on the back of the unit with a bolted connection. If you have an aftermarket radio you can get universal connectors at major dept stores that fit your car ( or auto parts stores) These connectors plug into the cars wire harness and the wires are labled to what they do and just connect the wires as marked on the sticker on the radio. If the radio is a factory radio that did'nt come in an Isuzu their commonly not marked and the wire pattern in the back of the radio has to be figured out.
