Re: Sun Visor split open?

Using STEEL binder post I got the drivers side pretty tight..... the passenger WOULD NOT tighten, so had to bite the bullet.

Re: Installing aftermarket stereo in 2002 civic dx 1.7l

^^^ Yes, RED/BLK goes to fuse #2 in under-hood box.

RED is the grounding/dimming circuit via cluster.

Reason for concern is, the cluster PCB traces can be damaged via wrong connections.

Re: Installing aftermarket stereo in 2002 civic dx 1.7l

Keep a close eye on the dimmer pair. 1 line is 12V with the lights on, The 2nd line is the dimming control (grounding)

Re: Headlight Relays

Pretty certain the MICU/Under Dash fuse box controls the head lights.

So...all 4 stay lit ??

Edit: If you pull back on headlight lever.... do the high beams still light ??

Re: dash lights not working

You should grab them from Honda..... General crossovers will likely say #74s will work, but they are too large. Likely # 2825 is what is used.

Re: 2009 Civic electrical issues- parasitic draw?

How long did it run for voltage test ? Did it ever rise above 12.06.
