    Yesterday while driving, it occured to me that my radio and top mounted LCD screen stopped working. (Accord 2003 - Premium Audio with Sat Nav)
    Center screen is working, so navigation part is still working.
    Where am I suppose to look first?
    Anyone else who had the same problem?

    Hi, I'm only a novice on this, but I think the fist place to look would be the fuses. I'm quite sure an expert will be along soon to help.

    @rinesh have you managed to be able to check the fuses or display at all?

    The best way to access it is to remove the panel it is located in. To do this you may need a hooked tool.

    Hook the took in the far left or far right of the centre vents on your dashboard, and pull towards the rear of the car. The clips holding the panel should release. Once done, the other clips are located along the edges of the panel, you will now need to lift them up towards the windscreen to release them.

    you should now have access to the under side of the display. I suspect it might be a blown blub that has caused the lack of display, or a bad connection.

    @Harvey : Yesterday i checked the fuse. It seemed okay, even though I replaced it. An guess what.. All started working again.
    Very happy that it was a easy fix instead of repairing things.

    @rinesh That is great new. Perhaps the fuse had a dirty connection and the act of removing and replacing was enough to rectify the fault
