Best bet is to buy another one. I might be willing to sell you my stock '07 EX-L V6 coupe one w/ AM/FM CD/AUX/XM 6-Disc Dual Zone w/ only 35k mi on it, works perfectly and has been converted for a sedan (whitish-green illumination dash)
Lmk if interested
Many thanks for the info and your offer!
I only have the single disc though. And I'm sure your stock unit is good, but at this moment I would like to be cautious and stay with a unit that exactly fits my car in case something goes wrong again in the future.
I'm actually leaning towards aftermarket. I figured if I get the single-din Metra, it'll cost $150+whatever aftermarket radio I buy. There's a place by my work in Fontana, CA that doesn't charge labor. They probably make their money off the radio already. Saw a nice Pioneer with HDradio + Bluetooth for $190. So It'll cost me around $350.
I wrote a letter to Honda and all they sent back was a letter saying thanks for my comments and concerns.
It sounds great pricing! Unfortunately, I don't know anywhere that installs this for free and at this point, I'm not sure if I would like to tackle this one myself to save from further problems down the road. Please let us know how it works out for your car though, if you do go with that route.
im having motly the same issue [ except for radio on when car is off ]
ebay has the oem radio block replacement for about $200
i mostly see the 6 disk changer on ebay though
i need to find out if i can replace my one cd radio block with a 6 disk radio block [ this is the only thing preventing me from buying it] or at least a retrofit
an aftermarket radio replacement will sound better and have alot more features [ depending on what radio you buy ] but i want a stock look
i live in NYC [bronx] can anyone recommend a place that repairs the oem radio block? 2ac2
thanks for sharing! That's a good price if it's in good working order! I'm wondering about the same question too.
I have the same story. My car has been problem free but the stereo recently went out. It started to go out occasionally and until it eventually stopped working all together. I looked at the kit that replaces your oem, but it felt cheap to me, so I went with an aftermarket radio in my storage cubby and was very happy. I got one with a red display that nearly matches the rest of my console. There's still a slot below the radio for storage if you must keep junk in your car. I was initially concerned that it would look weird having 2 stereos, but the original doesn't even look like a stereo.
The only problem is that the new stereo is lower, which increases the time my eyes are off the road when I'm searching through mp3 folders on the USB.
I know. I love the car, but this problem has been bugging me and is going to drive me nuts if it continues for too long!
I'm looking for the oem unit that fits my car's specs at this point though. Thanks for sharing~
