    i need to know what wire the remote wire needs to go in and how or do i need to cut wires

  • Reply ModifiedLife October 28, 2007 at 7:22 pm


    The 2000 Honda Accord does not have a factory remote turn on wire so you have to use a different switched wire.

    Technically, you could connect your remote turn on wire to the radio switched 12v+ wire (white/red). That way your amplifier is on whenever the car is on and off your amplifier when your car is off. Just make sure to run an in-line 1-amp fuse on the remote turn on.

    Hope this helps. Good Luck.

    I have recently installed a Panasonic cd deck into my accord. I purchased a harness and followed the color codes. Everything works well and I was left with a couple wires (the illuminator, and dimmer) from the car with nowhere to connect on the stereo. Now I have no dimmer control or lights in the instrument panel. Where do I put these wires to complete the circuit? Or do I? I dont think the deck I installed has dimmer control as all the wires from the deck are used. Thanks

  • Reply ModifiedLife May 19, 2008 at 3:09 pm

    Chris, dimmer or illumination wires are not necessary to install a radio. They are only used to dim the radio display when your parking lights are on because its night time and brighten the radio display when your parking lights are off because its daytime. Firstly, double check all your radio connections and make sure they are correct. Secondly, check that your fuses are not blown which may be why you don’t have any lights in the instrument panel. Lastly, make sure you don’t have any loose or exposed wires that may cause a short. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    I just recently installed an aftermarket cd player as well and I am having the same issues as Chris, having two wires(ILLUMINATION-org and DIMMER-org/wht) remaining. The cd player works fine but I also don’t have any dash lights and my park lights remain on unless I turn the car off. I have checked all the connections and fuses and everything is correct. I did some other researcha and I found out that I could have a faulty IGNITION SWITCH, is this true? You help would be greatly appreciated for I have found no one who could give me a legitimate solution.

    In reference to comment by Chris on May 17th, 2008, I also installed a cd stereo and have the same issue of no lights for the instrument panel and a/c panel. I did not see any blown fuses. Anybody else run into this? Thanks.

    Hi, I have a question about a cd player wiring. I just wired a cd player into my 2000 honda accord but I did not connect the dimmer wires to the cd player. Everything works fine except the lights in my dash it used to work before i hooked up the cd player but now it doesn’t. Could there be a connection problem between the cd player and my dash board lights or maybe the dimmer wire is the cause because the lights don’t work if you can help me out on this question please. thank you.

    My 2000 Honda Accord has a factory cassette player with CD changer potential (buttons) but it doesn’t have any legacy connectors. Anybody know the simple/cheap way to rig some RCA jacks into the back so I can plug in my iPod?

  • Reply Dave September 29, 2009 at 8:57 am

    I am installing radio in a 2000 Accord. The wiring diagram shows two hot wires. One constanct and one switched. Why? Do I need to wire this way, or do I only use one of the two?

  • Reply ModifiedLife October 6, 2009 at 2:54 am

    Dave, the battery constant always sends power to the radio to save your radio stations and other audio settings. The ignition switched wire sends power to your radio only when the key is in the ignition and your car is on. Both wires are necessary when installing a car radio. Hope this helps. Good luck with your stereo installation.

    I have a 2000 honda accord and im just wondering what would be the best way to get the power wire from the battery to the amps? If I can make the hole in the firewall, and where I should put a false wall. Thanks

  • Reply ModifiedLife November 20, 2009 at 4:00 pm

    Justin, most vehicles have a factory hole with a rubber or plastic grommet at the firewall. This is usually the standard place to run a power wire through the firewall. If one of these holes are not available or not large enough, a hole will have to be drilled to accommodate your power wire. Hope this helps. Good luck with your power wire installation.

    I also have recently installed an after market stereo into my daughters 2000 honda accord, and also Have the same problems as everyone else. everything works fine, although after install I have no dash lights.
    If anyone has figured out a solution to this problem Id love to read about it.

    I just installed a Jensen stereo in my son’s 2000 Honda Accord… I spliced wires (yeah, I know, not the recommended method)… The stereo works great but I now have a few extra wires: Car Radio Illumination Wire: Red and Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Red/Black… and the instrument panel lights don’t come on with the headlights anymore… I have installed stereos all my life and have never ran into this problem before. After reading the threads here, it seems as if this is a common theme with no real solution… anyone care to offer some advice (besides shooting the car and starting from scratch)

  • Reply James August 3, 2010 at 11:37 pm

    I had the same wiring issue(orange and Orange/white) the orange is actually a ground(connect it with the black ground wires) check your illumination fuse also but this completes your dimmer circuit, cut the ends of the orange/white and leave alone and this will fix all dash lighting issues.

    have original 2000 honda accord in dash cd player and i recently disconnected the battery. when i reconnected the battery the stereo no longer works and it asks for a code. how would i get the code

  • Reply ModifiedLife November 9, 2010 at 1:05 am

    John, radio security codes are usually written in your car manual or given to you when you purchase the vehicle. If you do not have the radio security code, you would have to obtain it from the local Honda dealer. Hope this helps. Good luck with unlocking your 2000 Honda Accord radio.
