Question about 1999 Honda Accord
Car Gurus!! I seek your aid!!! The dash lights and the center console lights of my 1999 Accord have gone out after I replaced the stock stereo with a Sony deck (CDXGT560UP). I bought it from Best Buy and I also bought the proper harness. I followed all the instructions and installed the radio. Right now the orange wire and the orange/white stripe are loose and are not attached to each other. I have checked the fuse related to the dash/interior lights (fuse #9 - according to the manual) but the lights and the chime associated with the headlights being left on are no longer working. Any thoughts? Thank you.
U f---ed up. How come you have those two wires not attached to anything? Never like that in first place, was it?
Go over all you did or better still have some one with smarts go over your work and , hopefully, they will find what you did wrong.

John is absolutely correct on the dimmer switch, and never hooking up the dimmer wire on an aftermarket stereo. Ok...from personal experience on my own Accord, I'm sorry to tell you that you most likely blew the multiplex computer on the Driver's side of the dash. This is a chronic problem with accords of this era. That's the bad news. The good news is that these are readily available on E-Bay for a reasonable price. The computer is attached directly to the drivers side fuse box. I bought mine with the fusebox attached. It is time consuming to replace, but something you could do if you are a contortionist and handy with tools. It took me about 90 min, not counting breaks to keep from cramping. There are a couple of good videos on you tube that demonstrate the procedure well. Finally, the really good news...if you are content to live with full-on dash lights, you can bypass the dimmer switch (which is part of the gauge cluster) to turn on the dash lights when the lights are turned on. Again, go to you tube for a great video on how to do this...and no need to mess with the multiplex. Search on YT: 1998-02 honda Accord blown dash lights. Cheap Fix. this should help.
