I have a 96 Accord EX with 181k on it. For the past couple of days my car
stereo has been shutting off intermittently, like there is a short
somewhere. At first I just assumed it was a prolem with the stereo itself,
but I noticed last night that the ABS light comes on and whatever the event
that causes this to happen also shuts off the stereo for a few seconds. The
ABS light goes off for a few minutes and then comes back on, shutting off
the stereo again and the cycle repeats.
When I was pulling in my driveway last night it seemed like the headlights
flickered ever so slightly, but I can't be sure I wasn't just imagining the
barely perceptable change. But when I went to start the car this morning,
the clock had reset and the ABS/radio issue was more frequent. I also
noticed that when I shut the car off the power locks didn't work the first
time I tried them. I waited a minute or two and then they worked fine, but
obviously I am concerned about this and am hoping someone can offer some
insight into what the problem/fix might be. I checked the fuses and the
all seemed to be okay. Any help would be HUGELY appreciated!
