ya thanks.. i searched cardomain and found it like a minute after i posted lol.... but i have another question... it is about the radio but i could not figure it out when i took out the radio... my screen for the radio has completely dimmed where you can barely see it in the day and cant see it at all at night.. i dont know what is the cause of this problem.. i thought it could be a loose wire but there were just two wiring harnesses and they were both tight... any other sugestions????

oh, u should bring it to the dealer.. there has been a LOT of cases similar to yours where the radio display is either not on or very dim.... my sisters coupe had the same prob, they replaced it the same day. if you search a little on v6p, you'll find a whole bunch of info on this.

hahah this is a known problem on accords. HU backlight just dies, and the usual fix is to just replace the whole HU. honda shouldve fixed this for free, this problem is VERY well known to them.

Yea there is a service bulletin about this on all 03 Accords you just have to take it to the dealer and have them order a new on, if you are still under factory warranty you will be lucky unless the dealership replaces it under good will!
