I would like to get one of these units (preferably GPS unit) that makes the noise. Anyone feel like sending me one for the experiment sake ?
Mine unfortunately was sent off to America Honda for further investigation. America Honda is aware of the issue.

Id be cuurious to know if anyone has tried the proposed fix from post #112 & #116?
I just wanted my SANITY back so I called America Honda and got a 50/50 split and made it HONDAS PROLEM… I wouldn’t dare to tear into that Faulty Audio Unit.

We have a problem. A loud one. So I have an 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring that we have driven about 108,000 miles, yes, it's a lot. And about 2 months ago, we encountered a very odd problem that apparently has not been seen anywhere else. I will upload a video for this forum for people to understand, but the problem is that our radio produces static noise. And it is like a old analog TV with no signal creating that super load and static sound! The problem is that we can't even turn it off. Powering off the radio with the power button does nothing, as well as putting the radio on mute and lowering the volume. No matter what setting you adjust, the radio seems to be possessed. We have the upgraded unit that comes with the Touring trim that has the navigation system. Although I have brought the car to the dealership about 3-4 times, they were not able to reproduce the noise when they had their technicians check it out. Although the people that take the car in did witness the static noise of the car when I pulled the vehicle up to the service center. And three times I was told that they were not able to reproduce to problem, leaving me to take the car home and deal with the noise afterwards... again and again. I asked Honda about my options. Since they are not able to reproduce my problem yet, my option was to replace the headunit of the car, which would come out of my own pocket. They said somewhere around 1k and up. Although I know that the car has driven through a lot of miles, I don't think that a car that new should have an infotainment issue to this severity. Please let me know if anyone has encountered this same issue and if there is any remedies to resolve this issue, what are my options!

Although, one thing that I have done to somewhat help my case is remove the wiring that connects to the three speakers in the rear since it easy access to remove the connectors. On the other hand, the speakers in the front are more difficult to reach since the door panels would need to come off.

Hi, am driving in uae with GCC spec accord V6 2017 model , i have encountered the same issue and workshop identified the same . Its because of the summer weather, when you keep the car outside direct to sun , the box getting heated and the bad sounds raises from the audio unit.. and the technical team avide to change the block or box which is very expensive and the sound just started soon after the car warranty got expired.. honda sucks..

If it makes you feel better you can blame the HEAT, but in actuality the audio unit if FAULTY period point blank and HONDA is aware of the ongoing issue. Only fix is replacing the Audio Head Unit. Read my previous post. The reason HEAT is irrelevant in this situation is because my car is garage kept and also it would happen on nice summer nights ( no sun out ). Anyways good luck mate!

I am in the same situation as you. If you hear anything let me know. I've done the same things that you have done I disconnected the ANC oh, and reinstalled it now. I've disconnected all my speakers in the back of the car. And the only relief I get is when I pull the fuse for the radio but as you said it kills everything the whole center console dies. I'm going to bring my car to Honda service next week but they probably have no idea what the hell they're doing
I have the same problem with a 2016 accord
