HVAC unit replacement

SRS components are located in this area. Review the SRS component locations and the precautions and procedures before performing repairs or service.

NOTE:

Put on gloves to protect your hands.

Take care not to scratch the dashboard and related parts.

Lay a workshop towel under the parts when working on them to protect the face panel from scratches or other damage.

Do not work in a dusty or dirty place.

Discharge static electricity from your body before and during the work.

Do not touch the circuit board with your bare hands.

Do not work with dirty hands.

Be careful not to fold the flat plate cable.

Do not touch the terminal connector of the flat plate cable with your bare hands. (If you have touched it, wipe it off thoroughly.)

Make sure you have the anti-theft codes for the radio and navigation system, then write down the frequencies for the radio's preset buttons.

Remove the upper panel.

Remove the center pocket.

Remove the screws and bolts, disconnect the audio-HVAC display module connectors (A) and the antenna lead (B), then remove the audio-HVAC display module (C).

Install the audio-HVAC display module and note these items:

Make sure the disconnected connectors plugged in properly, and the antenna lead is connected properly.

Enter the anti-theft code for the radio, then enter the customer's radio station presets.

With climate control:

Thanks Princess! Im going to be helping a friend with a 2003 Honda Accord EX MT Sedan install his new headunit tomorrow. The first one filed with the notorious backlight problem. But he went on ebay and got a refurb head unit, for $215.00. Are there any strightforward instuctions are taking the dash apart? I'll do some searching and see what I find on the site.


Thanks,
Mike

Pull the upper panel (A) in the direction shown to release the remaining clips, disconnect the hazard warning switch connector (B), and if equipped, sunlight sensor connector (C) and navigation subdisplay connector (D). Detach the harness clips (E), then remove the upper panel.

Install the panel in the reverse order of removal, and make sure each connector is plugged in properly.

I don't think you should worry. The new 06 headunit on the EX's look redesigned in the lighting department, which leads me to think they got the clue.
