Tips and warnings

  • Factory sound systems in the Honda Accord have antitheft devices. You should know the device's activation code before you begin this replacement procedure so you can activate the stereo when you are finished.
  • Do not overheat the starter motor when starting the car. Never engage the starter for more than 30 seconds at a time, and wait a few minutes between start attempts.
