These radios have a big problem with the backlight going out. I highly doubt, as do you, the install techs did anything to cause the backlight to go out. You don't have to pay $1800 for a new one. They go on ebay for $150 to $200. I'm even selling a OEM 6cd changer HU on the sale/trade classified on these forums for $170 shipped with the $90 AUX interface adapter for free. I only had it installed for about 3 months, its been sitting in my room for about a year and a half now. Been holding on to it just in case my HU dies. If your interested drop me a PM. The only options you have really is to get the radio you have fixed by someone, get another radio, or get the install kit and get an aftermarket radio. That is if you can't get honda to replace it under warranty.

^^^ because the factory wires were tapped for external amping and a remote lead. ..... I think that you should take some pics of the wiring and post them. If it was all done very professionally and neatly, you should then write an email to Honda of America and include the pictures, explain the case and see if they will provide a new radio as good will.

If the high level leads are shorting out, it is the aftermarket stereo shop's responsibility to fix it. Does your system have high level leads to the amps or LOC's to RCA's?
