Default What to check on 96 Accord EX

Hi all, 1996 Honda Accord EX 5 Speed. Starting yesterday, whenever I get in
and start the vehicle, the radio displays code. I also lose all my presets.
I have the code and put it in, but once I turn off the car, the cycle
repeats. Also, the clock resets and also does not display as it usually
does when the vehicle is on. When I press the panel that covers the
buttons, it displays the time (starting at 1:00 from when I started the
vehicle).
Does anyone know what fuse/relay/wire to check to fix this?

The radio backup fuse is blown. Look for it in the underhood fusebox.
Usually 7.5 amps

Is this fuse actually called "radio backup? I should put this in the FAQ.

I don't know what it is on that version of Accord. But if I remember right,
on the 4th-gen (1990-93) there was a fuse under the hood that was called
simply "backup".

It seems to hold up until at least model year 2000. On my '96 Odyssey it
was "radio bu". On the '00 TL it was simply "bkup". The consistent thing
was they both said "backup" in some abbreviation and they are 7.5A. This is
also the fuse you pull to reset the ECM.

On the '06 CR-V, it says "audio" and its 10A (the ECM backup is also on a
different fuse on the CR-V).

The "backup" fuse has been present from at least 1990. I did some checking
in my shop manuals to see what pulling that fuse actually did.

It looks like if that fuse were blown, the ECU and various other things
would be reset at the same time as the clock.

Have you actually had the clock-reset thing happen to you personally? And
was it fixed by replacing the fuse?

The backup (radio) fuse has been replaced. The radio has kept its presets
and the clock displays again. Now how do I get the radio to recognize the
CD changer again?

I have experienced the radio "code" & it was that fuse, didn't notice the
clock at the time.

I found the service manual for the '96 Odyssey, which for all intents and
purposes is an Accord with captain's chairs. The description in the FSM for
that fuse (#39 in the under-hood box) is "PCM, clock, audio unit". Its sort
of interesting that the FSM only gives descriptions of the fuses' functions
and does not list the names on the fuse box cover. At least in this case, I
believe that fuse or the wiring coming off it will account for both the OP's
problems.

Can't help with that, but if the fuse blows again, I think the changer & its
associated wiring would be the first thing to check.

Thanks. I'll add this when I get a chance. It's common enough.
