The radio only works when the parking or headlights are on. What is the cause?


Asked by valedickvale Jun 23, 2013 at 07:51 PM about the 1992 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If the lights are off, the radio does not work.  If the parking lights or the headlights are on, the radio works fine.  This problem just started on its own.  I  checked all the fuses and nothing is amiss.  I cannot determine the cause of the problem.

1 Answer


Is it a factory radio?
