Hello,
Last six months I'm facing a problem with my Radio/Aircon display. Some times I can't read nothing on it because everything is on. I saw that the problem is frecuently when the weather is cold
We change the display in warranty but the problem remains.
At the photo you can see the problem, the radio and the aircon is off!!!!!!!!!!!!
Had anyone the same problem?

when display screen goes wrong (like yours) with all the lights coming on then there is a bridge somewhere in the circuit......(try this if you can.....press down one or more buttons on your dvd set or radio set at home and all the lights would come on). Honestly its gonna be a hard job to get this done.....

Probably it's a "Ground" problem because I have some problems with radio when the weather is rainy and there are many thunders. The radio changes the radio stations or goes on-off itself!!!! (With a loud sound)

Im replying here to help some others out, as this is the first google hit. This is on a 2007 UK sport auto model. Learn from my mistakes!

Grab the small curved bit of plastic above your speedo, then pull it up and towards you firmly, it will just unclip

This is what it looks like when it unclips

Next do the same thing with the speedo component, pull it stright towards you, DO NOT TWIST OR PIVOT IT! If you rotate the speedo as you pull, youll break a plastic clip at the back (like I did) just whack it towards you and up a little, both sides at the same time. If you like, unclip the black part from the white speedo part to get it out of the way. This is the unit from above before removing.

Next, you should see a small gap between where the speedo was and the radio display

Find something which will allow you to pull on a surface from the other side, I have no idea what this is but it was laying around the house and worked fine.

Get it in the gap and start pulling up the flat panel, the first plastic plug will come out fine, the second one requires the force of Titan. Just pull it straight upwards, no other direction.

Keep working your way around pulling the plastic bits out, upwards

Just so you can see what youre fighting against, this is the under side after its removed. I slightly cracked the last plastic clip, but im sure the other 9000 will hold it when I replace it

Undo the two shiny screws

Now a tricky part, the radio display face is held on with 3 plastic clips, 2 on the drivers side, one on the passenger side. PULL IT STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE BACK OF THE CAR! Do not pull out one side first, do not twist it, this part is a total arse to get out, but just whack it out in a straight line, both sides at once. If you do one side too much before you start the other, it gets wedged in and you snap off a plastic clip.

Use your hooking tool if you need to

Fianlly unplug the green connector, take the radio display inside and unclip all the easy plastic clips until you see the bare circuit board rear. Resolder the 40 or so pins all in a row and put it back together.

TIP: When reassembling it, dont do it in reverse order. Save the flat panel for the very end. ie. 1) Radio face, 2) Speedo, 3) flat panel last.

Hope this helps you all. [email protected] if you need me, I likely won't read back here again til something else goes wrong with it ;-)

Same as the previous post - I've just bought an 07 plate Civic which had this problem (in my case, the top halves of the letters/numbers would be missing, but tapping the dashboard brought them back).
Thanks to the OP for this guide - it helped give me the confidence to fix this myself

I was afraid to brake some plastic clips, so the official Honda service pulled the display out, then I toked it to some electronic repair service, waited one hour, and toked back to official Honda service, and they put everything back. Cost a bit more than fully DIY, but less worries.

I know its late i got something similar and i got a reply. I have a civic with sat nav and when i fitted an aftermarket stereo i got the same problem on the clock and i was told by the company that I bought the wire harness from that what happens is that the harness is not compatable as it was made for civic with clock only and therefore the information is trying to be fed to a large clock when the clock is small. Therefore my problem is that the feed is trying to push to much info to the clock therefore yes GROUND has to be the problem
