    Its been a while sense I put a radio in. Not sure what the illumination wire connects to my 1997 Honda Civic radio output. Any suggestions?

    Sri, the 1997 Honda Civic illumination wire is the red/black wire located at the factory radio wire harness. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 1997 Honda Civic stereo installation.
