Asked by Oct 16, 2011 at 08:21 AM about the 2003 Honda Accord LX V6 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Has anyone experienced a Radio/Air Control Illumination failure?  What was the
problem?  The illumination for my lCD panel and the air control back lighting is
dead.  I checked fuses [look good] and pulled the radio assy to access the
connectors: continuous and switched +12 is present, illumination voltage is at
ground, so the radio assy itself is probably ok.

This happened on my 2004 Accord. There was a factory recall on this problem. A resistor burned out on the liquid crystal display which caused the problem. The dealer probably replaced the LCD display, I don't think they would have soldered in a new resistor.

Ah ha! That is consistent with a correction to my original post: The + dimmer is actually 12VDC as long as the headlights are on. Do you happen to remember if your failure also caused the HVAC controls in the radio assembly to fail [so you couldn't identify the controls in the dark]?

My problem was that the display went totally dark, it had nothing to do with the dimmer function when the headlights were on.

This also blanked out the HVAC, clock etc. readings on the LCD display

Thank you very much. I think I will find out if that recall was extended to the '03!
