Default i need help with my 99 honda accord coupe?

so my father gave me this car a while back havent used it till now and the panel lights dont turn on whenever i turn the outside lights on. but when the outside lights are off everything works good, then it has a custom radio that wont turn off completely any ideas? i as thinking it had an electrical problem whenever the new sterio was installed. and also the ac wont work till its in level 3.

Hope someone helps.. thank you.

Did all of this start after you had the new stereo installed? If so, take the car back to where you got the stereo installed and tell them about the problem.

Otherwise, you may have a bad alternator. Start your car and then disconnect the battery. If the engine stalls, you have a bad alternator.

Does sound like an electrical problem related to the radio. However have you checked to see that the dimmer isn't all the way off?

As for the a/c problem: do you mean the blower motor won't run unless the dial is set to 3 or above? If so, it is probably a different problem than the radio and dash lights. Check the blower motor resistor (it regulates the voltage going to the blower motor and determines what speed it spins); they are very common to go bad and fairly easy to replace.

Do you have or can you get an operator's manual for your car? The head light switch can be adjusted, to brighten the panel lights. Take your car to a Honda dealer, for an oil change or something simple like that and ask a few questions. Ask if you can buy an operator's manual.

Level 3 means the engine is operating at high revolutions per minute ( RPM ) and the generator is producing more electrical power, which turns the Air Conditioner circuit on.
