    Calling on all Honda Accord owners from 2003 on!!
    I know that many of you have had a problem with the radio. This is something that will be covered by the coporate office of Honda through Customer/Client Relations Dept.
    However, I am writing to find out how many people have a problem with the panel portion of the car, and in particular all the lights to the buttons in and around the radio. If you do have a problem with this, please respond to this because I am trying to create a case against Honda that will benefit all of us.

    Hi, my radio problem was the lights & panel display. Honda fixed that, but now my transmission has gone out... WHAT A PIECE OF CRAP car the 03 Honda Accord EXV6 Coupe turned out to be. I am "working" with Honda now to have this fixed. Meanwhile, I am without transportation & I commute over 100 miles a day. This car will be gone as soon as it is ready for the road again!

    Hi there,
    I also own a 2003 honda accord EX (4 cylinder). Just today... I was driving, parked the car and looked down to shut off the radio (I always do, before I get out of the car), and the radio/CD/clock panel was dark. With the over head light on.. I could see the crystal displays of all the info, but the blue backlight had gone out. Before hopping online, just now, I was flipping through the car's manual,and found NOTHING on this issue, fuse, dim knob, or otherwise.

    They had a recall back in 2003 on the transmission. I did get notified from Honda and the dealer had to put on a swith or something on the trans. I would check with your dealer.

    The lighting display on the radio of my 2003 Honda EX just went out last night. I have 58K miles and am going to call Honda Of America as suggested on this website by spitfire80. Has anybody else been successful with getting the repair done without paying through the nose?

    Your problem with your lights stems from a control panel that is built into the radio. I was able to have this fixed by my dealer. I have 81,000 miles on my car. The dealerís service manager had to make a call into Honda because I was out of warranty and in about a week I had my car fixed at no cost to me. This is the main reasons I have been a Honda owner for over 20 years. Very few problems but when one comes up they stand behind their product.

    The lights for the control cluster and radio went out. 2003 2DR Honda EX with less then 50K miles. In the right light I can see that the radio display still works.

    Hello,
    I have a Honda Accord Type-S from 2003 and I also have a problem with the cd player. In fact, the cd player does not want to read any copied cds and has quite a lot of difficulties in reading copyrighted cds. However, I never had any problem with the lights.
    Hope I helped.
    Best Regards

    I also have the same issue with the light on the radio/HVAC panel. My family has driven Hondas for more than 15 years and have always had excellent service so this radio light issue is quite disappointing. Thanks for the help and advice on handling this matter.

    I have the same problem. I call Honda USA today and they said that will provide an aswer in the next 3 days. He did not confirm, but there is no way this can not be an automatic recall process.

    Good news! Took '03 Honda Accord to Honda dealer (Ed Voyles in Atlanta) to inquire about backlight outage. To my pleasant surprise the service rep informed me that Honda is covering the cost of replacement on any Honda with this problem, up to 100k miles. No hassles, no arguments/disagreements, no need for a case number! :)

    Dealer had to install a new radio on my 2003 honda accord 4cylinder on oct 2005. Lights on current radio and control knobs lights failed. My car was over 36k past warranty. Honda provided a radio replacement after calling them several times but still have to pay $180.00 for the Total cost for diagnostic & labor to the Honda Dealership in Lynnwood, WA.

    Friends:

    Contact the Federal Trade Commissioner ([email protected]) or Federal Trade Commission Home and write a letter. They are taking note of everyone with this issue and will analyze. If everybody write, they will investigate possible illegal practices and enforce the law.
