Honda Accord Coupe - 2003 Fuse Box Diagram

If your car’s battery is disconnected
or goes dead, or the driver’s window
fuse is removed, the AUTO function
will be disabled. The power window
system needs to be reset after
reconnecting the battery or installing
the fuse. You should do the following.
Start the engine. Push down on
the driver’s window switch until
the window is fully open.
Pull back on the driver’s window
switch to close the window
completely, then hold the switch
for a second or two more.
If the power windows do not operate
properly after resetting, have your
car checked by a Honda dealer.
The power window system has a key-
off delay function. The windows will
still operate for up to ten minutes
after you turn off the ignition.
Opening either door cancels the
delay function. You must turn the
ignition switch ON (II) again before
you can raise or lower the windows.

If you do not like the stations Auto
Select has stored, you can store
other frequencies in the preset bars.
Use the TUNE, SEEK, or SCAN
function to find the desired
frequencies, then store them in the
selected preset bars as described
previously.
Auto Select does not erase the
frequencies that you set previously.
When you return home, turn off
Auto Select by pressing the A. SEL
button. The preset bars will then
select the frequencies you originally
set.
If you are
traveling far from home and can no
longer receive the stations you
preset, you can use the Auto Select
feature to find stations in the local
area.
To activate Auto Select, press the
A. SEL button. A. SEL will flash in
the display, and the system will go
into scan mode for several seconds.
It automatically scans both bands,
looking for stations with strong
signals. It stores the frequencies of
six AM stations and twelve FM
stations in the preset bars (1
6).
You can then use the preset bars to
select those stations.
If you are in a remote area, Auto
Select may not find six strong AM
stations or twelve strong FM stations.
If this happens, you will see a ‘‘0’’
displayed when you press the left or
right side of any preset bar that does
not have a station stored.
For information, see page
.
Once a station’s frequency is stored,
simply press and release the left or
right side of the proper preset bar to
tune to it.
The preset frequencies will be lost if
your car’s battery goes dead, is
disconnected, or the radio fuse is
removed.

Your car’s audio system will disable
itself if it is disconnected from
electrical power for any reason. To
make it work again, the user must
enter a specific code using the preset
bars or the TUNE knob. Because
there are hundreds of number
combinations possible, making the
system work without knowing the
exact code is nearly impossible.
You should have received a card that
lists your audio system’s code
number and serial number. It is best
to store this card in a safe place at
home. In addition, you should write
the audio system’s serial number in
this Owner’s Manual. If you should
happen to lose the card, you must
obtain the code number from your
Honda dealer. To do this, you will
need the system’s serial number.
When all the digits in the code are
entered correctly, the radio will start
playing.
If you make a mistake entering the
code, do not start over or try to
correct your mistake. Complete the
sequence, then enter the correct
code. You have ten tries to enter the
correct code. If you are unsuccessful
in ten attempts, you must then leave
the system on for one hour before
trying again.
If your car is equipped with a
navigation system, press and release
the TUNE knob; the number ‘‘0’’
appears on the display.
You will have to store your favorite
stations on each side of the preset
bars (1
6) after the system begins
working. Your original settings were
lost when power was disconnected.
If your car’s battery is disconnected
or goes dead, or the radio fuse is
removed, the audio system will
disable itself. If this happens, you
will see ‘‘
’’/‘‘
’’ in the
frequency display the next time you
turn on the system. Use the preset
bars to enter the code.
If ‘‘0’’ is not the first digit in your
code, turn the TUNE knob left or
right until the first digit is
displayed. Press and release the
TUNE knob to store it. Enter the
remaining digits the same way.
If ‘‘0’’ is the first digit in your code,
press and release the TUNE knob
to store it.

Diagnosing why your engine won’t
start falls into two areas, depending
on what you hear when you turn the
key to START (III):
You hear nothing, or almost
nothing. The engine’s starter
motor does not operate at all, or
operates very slowly.
You can hear the starter motor
operating normally, or the starter
motor sounds like it is spinning
faster than normal, but the engine
does not start up and run.
When you turn the ignition switch to
START (III), you do not hear the
normal noise of the engine trying to
start. You may hear a clicking sound
or series of clicks, or nothing at all.
Check these things:
Check the transmission interlock.
If you have a manual transmission,
the clutch pedal must be pushed
all the way to the floor or the
starter will not operate. With an
automatic transmission, it must be
in Park or Neutral.
Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Turn on the headlights and check
their brightness. If the headlights
are very dim or don’t light at all,
the battery is discharged. See
on page
.
Turn the ignition switch to START
(III). If the headlights do not dim,
check the condition of the fuses. If
the fuses are OK, there is proba-
bly something wrong with the
electrical circuit for the ignition
switch or starter motor. You will
need a qualified technician to
determine the problem. (See
on page
.)
If the headlights dim noticeably or
go out when you try to start the
engine, either the battery is dis-
charged or the connections are
corroded. Check the condition of
the battery and terminal connec-
tions (see page
). You can
then try jump starting the car from
a booster battery (see page
).

In this case, the starter motor’s
speed sounds normal, or even faster
than normal, when you turn the
ignition switch to START (III), but
the engine does not run.
Are you using the proper starting
procedure? Refer to
on page
.
Your car has the Immobilizer
System. You should use a
properly-coded master or valet key
to start the engine (see page
).
A key that is not properly coded
will cause the immobilizer system
indicator in the dash panel to blink
rapidly.
Do you have fuel? Turn the
ignition switch to ON (II) for a
minute and watch the fuel gauge.
The low fuel level warning light
may not be working, so you were
not reminded to fill the tank.
There may be an electrical
problem, such as no power to the
fuel pump. Check all the fuses
(see page
).
If you find nothing wrong, you will
need a qualified technician to find
the problem. See

Get the moonroof wrench out of
the tool kit in the trunk.
If the electric motor will not close
the moonroof, do the following:
Check the fuse for the moonroof
motor (see page
). If the fuse
is blown, replace it with one of the
same or lower rating.
Try closing the moonroof. If the
new fuse blows immediately or the
moonroof motor still does not
operate, you can close the
moonroof manually.
To remove the round plug in the
center of the headliner, turn the
plug by using a screwdriver or
coin, then pry it out. Make sure to
align the tabs on the round plug to
the notches on the ceilling as
shown in the illustration.
Insert the moonroof wrench
securely into the socket behind
this plug. Hold the longer handle
as shown and turn the wrench
slowly until the moonroof is fully
closed.

All the electrical circuits in your car
have fuses to protect them from a
short circuit or overload. These
fuses are located in two fuse boxes.
The under-hood fuse box is located
near the back of the engine compart-
ment on the driver’s side. To open it,
push the tabs as shown.
Remove the cover from the fuse
box.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK
(0). Make sure the headlights and
all other accessories are off.
If something electrical in your car
stops working, the first thing you
should check for is a blown fuse.
Determine from the chart on pages
and
, or the diagram on the
fuse box lid, which fuse or fuses
control that component. Check those
fuses first, but check all the fuses
before deciding that a blown fuse is
not the cause. Replace any blown
fuses and check the component’s
operation.
The interior fuse box is on the
driver’s lower left side. To remove
the fuse box lid, put your finger in
the notch on the lid, and pull it
upward slightly, then pull it toward
you and take it out of its hinges.

Look for a burned wire inside the
fuse. If it is burned, replace it with
one of the spare fuses of the same
rating or lower.
If you cannot drive the car without
fixing the problem, and you do not
have a spare fuse, take a fuse of the
same rating or a lower rating from
one of the other circuits. Make sure
you can do without that circuit
temporarily (such as the accessory
power socket or radio).
If you replace the blown fuse with a
spare fuse that has a lower rating, it
might blow out again. This does not
indicate anything wrong. Replace the
fuse with one of the correct rating as
soon as you can.
If the replacement fuse of the
same rating blows in a short time,
there is probably a serious
electrical problem in your car.
Leave the blown fuse in that
circuit and have your car checked
by a qualified mechanic.

Replacing a fuse with one that has a
higher rating greatly increases the
chances of damaging the electrical
system. If you do not have a replace-
ment fuse with the proper rating for the
circuit, install one with a lower rating.

fuse is removed, the AUTO function
will be disabled. The power window
system needs to be reset after
reconnecting the battery or installing
the fuse. You should do the following.
Start the engine. Push down on
the driver’s window switch until
the window is fully open.
Pull back on the driver’s window
switch to close the window
completely, then hold the switch
for a second or two more.
The power window system has a key-
off delay function. The windows will
still operate for up to ten minutes

of six stations on AM and twelve
on FM.
The preset frequencies will be lost if
your car’s battery goes dead, is
disconnected, or the radio fuse is
removed.
The SCAN function
samples all the stations with strong
signals on the selected band. To
activate it, push and release the
SCAN button on the driver’s side of
the audio display or touch the SCAN
icon at the bottom of the display.
You will see SCAN in the display.
The system will scan up the band for
a station with a strong signal. When
it finds one, it will stop and play that
station for approximately five
seconds. If you do nothing, the
system will then scan for the next
strong station and play that for five
seconds. When it plays a station that
you want to continue listening to,
press the SCAN button or touch the
SCAN icon again.
Push the AUDIO DISPLAY button
to view the audio display. You will
see the six preset icons.
Select the desired band, AM or
FM. FM1 and FM2 let you store
two frequencies with each preset
icon.
Pick the preset icon you want for
that station. Touch the icon, and
hold it until you hear a beep.
Once a station’s frequency is stored,
simply touch the proper preset icon
to tune to it.
You can store the
frequencies of your favorite radio
stations in the six preset icons. Each
icon will store one frequency on the
AM band, and two frequencies on
the FM band.

Your car’s audio system will disable
itself if it is disconnected from
electrical power for any reason. To
make it work again, the user must
enter a specific code using the preset
bars or the TUNE knob. Because
there are hundreds of number
combinations possible, making the
system work without knowing the
exact code is nearly impossible.
You should have received a card that
lists your audio system’s code
number and serial number. It is best
to store this card in a safe place at
home. In addition, you should write
the audio system’s serial number in
this Owner’s Manual. If you should
happen to lose the card, you must
obtain the code number from your
Honda dealer. To do this, you will
need the system’s serial number.
When all the digits in the code are
entered correctly, the radio will start
playing.
If you make a mistake entering the
code, do not start over or try to
correct your mistake. Complete the
sequence, then enter the correct
code. You have ten tries to enter the
correct code. If you are unsuccessful
in ten attempts, you must then leave
the system on for one hour before
trying again.
If your car’s battery is disconnected
or goes dead, or the radio fuse is
removed, the audio system will
disable itself. If this happens, you
will see ‘‘
’’/‘‘
’’ in the
frequency display the next time you
turn on the system. Use the preset
buttons to enter the code.
If your car is equipped with a
navigation system, press and release
the TUNE knob; the number ‘‘0’’
appears on the display.
If ‘‘0’’ is the first digit in your code,
press and release the TUNE knob
to store it.
If ‘‘0’’ is not the first digit in your
code, turn the TUNE knob left or
right until the first digit is
displayed. Press and release the
TUNE knob to store it. Enter the
remaining digits the same way.
You will have to store your favorite
stations on each side of the preset
bars (1
6) after the system begins
working. Your original settings were
lost when power was disconnected.

Turn the ignition switch to START
(III). If the headlights do not dim,
check the condition of the fuses. If
the fuses are OK, there is proba-
bly something wrong with the
electrical circuit for the ignition
switch or starter motor. You will
need a qualified technician to
determine the problem. (See
on page
.)
If the headlights dim noticeably or
go out when you try to start the
engine, either the battery is dis-
charged or the connections are
corroded. Check the condition of
the battery and terminal connec-
tions (see page
). You can
then try jump starting the car from
a booster battery (see page
).
In this case, the starter motor’s
speed sounds normal, or even faster
than normal, when you turn the
ignition switch to START (III), but
the engine does not run.
Are you using the proper starting
procedure? Refer to
on page
.
Your car has the Immobilizer
System. You should use a
properly-coded master or valet key
to start the engine (see page
).
A key that is not properly coded
will cause the immobilizer system
indicator in the dash panel to blink
rapidly.
Do you have fuel? Turn the
ignition switch to ON (II) for a
minute and watch the fuel gauge.
The low fuel level warning light
may not be working, so you were
not reminded to fill the tank.
There may be an electrical
problem, such as no power to the
fuel pump. Check all the fuses
(see page
).
If you find nothing wrong, you will
need a qualified technician to find
the problem. See
on page
.

Use a screwdriver or coin to
remove the round plug in the
center of the headliner.
Remove the wrench. Reinstall the
round plug.
Insert the moonroof wrench into
the socket behind this plug. Turn
the wrench until the moonroof is
fully closed.
Get the moonroof wrench out of
the tool kit in the trunk.
If the electric motor will not close
the moonroof, do the following:
Check the fuse for the moonroof
motor (see page
). If the fuse
is blown, replace it with one of the
same or lower rating.
Try closing the moonroof. If the
new fuse blows immediately or the
moonroof motor still does not
operate, you can close the
moonroof manually.

All the electrical circuits in your car
have fuses to protect them from a
short circuit or overload. These
fuses are located in two fuse boxes.
The interior fuse box is on the
driver’s lower left side. To remove
the fuse box lid, pull it toward you
and take it out of its hinges.
The under-hood fuse box is located
near the back of the engine compart-
ment on the driver’s side. To open it,
push the tabs as shown.

Turn the ignition switch to LOCK
(0). Make sure the headlights and
all other accessories are off.
Remove the cover from the fuse
box.
If something electrical in your car
stops working, the first thing you
should check for is a blown fuse.
Determine from the chart on pages
and
, or the diagram on the
fuse box lid, which fuse or fuses
control that component. Check those
fuses first, but check all the fuses
before deciding that a blown fuse is
not the cause. Replace any blown
fuses and check the component’s
operation.
Check each of the large fuses in
the under-hood fuse box by
looking at the wire inside.
Removing these fuses requires a
Phillips-head screwdriver.

If the replacement fuse of the
same rating blows in a short time,
there is probably a serious
electrical problem in your car.
Leave the blown fuse in that
circuit and have your car checked
by a qualified mechanic.
If you cannot drive the car without
fixing the problem, and you do not
have a spare fuse, take a fuse of the
same rating or a lower rating from
one of the other circuits. Make sure
you can do without that circuit
temporarily (such as the accessory
power socket or radio).
If you replace the blown fuse with a
spare fuse that has a lower rating, it
might blow out again. This does not
indicate anything wrong. Replace the
fuse with one of the correct rating as
soon as you can.
Look for a burned wire inside the
fuse. If it is burned, replace it with
one of the spare fuses of the same
rating or lower.
Check the smaller fuses in the
under-hood fuse box and all the
fuses in the interior fuse box by
pulling out each fuse with the fuse
puller provided in the under-hood
fuse box.

Replacing a fuse with one that has a
higher rating greatly increases the
chances of damaging the electrical
system. If you do not have a replace-
ment fuse with the proper rating for the
circuit, install one with a lower rating.
