Default Radio/Climate Control Panel is blank

Hi,


The Radio/Climate Control panel in the center of the dash is blank on
my 2004 Accord V-6. I assume that this is an LCD panel. Is there a
back light that went out or is the whole LCD panel trashed? The
instrument cluster is lit normally. Is there something simple to
check ?

Thanks,
Norman

You did check the fuse, right?

Here is a TSB on that problem.

Thanks for the info. Good thing I have an extended warranty. A new
radio will probably be expensive.

I didn't realize that was an extended warranty item. No charge!

The TSB has been updated. See your dealer. It should be handled under
normal warranty terms due to an extension which covers replacement of the
printed circuit board in your radio display. The following is the opening
paragraph from that TSB:

BACKGROUND
NOTE: Because of a class action settlement, the
warranty extension coverage for the audio unit display
on affected vehicles purchased or leased between
April 13, 2002, and November 7, 2006, is now 7 years
or 105,000 miles, whichever occurs first. For more
information, refer to Service Bulletin 06-085, Warranty
Extension: Vehicle Warranty Mileage.
In some audio units, a component failure on the PCB
(printed circuit board) could cause the audio display to
become dark or dim, and prevent the audio/HVAC
panel buttons from illuminating.
To ensure that customers have adequate warranty
coverage for this potential problem, American Honda is
increasing the warranty on the audio unit display to
7 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. For
other defects the standard 3 years or 36,000 miles
warranty applies, whichever occurs first.
VEHICLES AFFECTED
NOTE: Affected vehicles do not have the navigation
system.
