Expert:  ike replied 6 years ago.

There is no bulb for this. There is a service bulletin though for the radio display being dark. If you will send me your VIN I will tell you if you are eligible for the repair under a warranty extension. This is assuming that this is an American Honda, not Canadian.

If eligible , your audio unit printed circuit board can be replaced by a dealer.

My wife took car on errand, I will check VIN we she gets back. BWAY the dealer service agent we called said "the bulb" needed replacement.
Expert:  ike replied 6 years ago.
The service bulletin is SB 04-027 Here is an exerpt from the service bulletin

NOTE: Because of a class action settlement, the

warranty extension coverage for the audio unit display

on affected vehicles purchased or leased between

April 13, 2002, and November 7, 2006, is now 7 years

or 105,000 miles, whichever occurs first. For more

information, refer to Service Bulletin 06-085, Warranty

Extension: Vehicle Warranty Mileage.

In some audio units, a component failure on the PCB

(printed circuit board) could cause the audio display to

become dark or dim, and prevent the audio/HVAC

panel buttons from illuminating.

To ensure that customers have adequate warranty

coverage for this potential problem, American Honda is

increasing the warranty on the audio unit display to

7 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. For

other defects the standard 3 years or 36,000 miles

warranty applies, whichever occurs first.

VEHICLES AFFECTED

NOTE: Affected vehicles do not have the navigation

system.

Only a small number of vehicles within a wide range of

vehicles are affected by this warranty extension.

Before beginning work, verify vehicle eligibility by

checking at least one of these items:

  • The customer has a notification letter.
  • The vehicle is shown as eligible on a VIN status

inquiry.

Expert:  ike replied 6 years ago.
Yes , your vehicle is eligible for this repair. You are also eligible for another bulletin, SB 08-043, for wiper motor inspection or replacement if needed. A dealer will have to order the printed circuit board, but will be able to repair your stereo free of charge.
