Has anyone upgraded their headlights to aftermarket HIDs? They look really nice.
#20 of 28 Question about the '07 HAH Stereo
Jan 23, 2007 (4:06 pm)
I was looking around on the internet, and I found a nice auxiliary device for auxiliary stereo input; but I don't know what the '07 HAH factory stereo's brand is. Could anyone help me with this. Thanks. (Are these forums still alive?)

Still digging to see if I can find out. All it says on the Honda web site is:
Your music sets the right tone every time. That's because the Accord Hybrid features a 120-watt AM/FM/6-disc in-dash CD changer audio system with XM® Satellite Radio.*
I'll keep digging and see if we can track this down.
#22 of 28 For those who like auxiliary devices...
Jan 25, 2007 (1:35 pm)
This should be a link to something that I've run across in my search to find some way to connect a plethora of auxiliary devices to a Honda Accord Hybrid. The linked device will NOT work with HAH's Nav system, being this device needs to occupy the space that the Nav system does. Unless, of course, one can do without the Nav sysem connected to the stereo for sound through the stereo, but I don't think that would work very well. I won't really get into the installation, being that I haven't actually purchased this yet. The way it's put though, it "should" be easy enough; along the lines of: Set dip switches on device, pop stereo out, plug wires in, pop stereo in, hit aux button on radio to hear, voila.
Personally, I've been doing some research on the HAH v/s TCH. I'm pretty won over from the facts and the the ride of the HAH, but if I went with this car, being the car doesn't have a tape deck (I still use the tape / 3.5mm connector crossover ^^) and couldn't get one without trouble (cost / would take up that nice compartment), I'd have to find some other way of applying peripheral devices.
My girlfriend and I are always going on road trips, and an mp3 player's / laptops's (possibly a dvd player's in the future) ability to plug into the stereo is wonderful. Being that we abhor I-Pods, both the I-pod and I-pod connector aren't for us. Unlike the Civic and Camry (though there are more), which have an auxiliary port built in, the Accord does not. I had trouble finding information about whether or not the '07 models were compatible with this device, but I called the company, and they clarified that this model does indeed work with the '07 Accord and Accord Hybrid. Also, as far as compatibility goes, Radio Shack sells a crossover to switch a 3.5 mm jack (typical size for most cd / mp3 players and headphones) to the Red/White Rca jacks so one could use it for more typical devices.
Again, I haven't purchased this, nor have I heard anyone's account of this product. I'm open to anyone's opinion about this product if they've tried it / had experience with it.
#23 of 28 Poor reception on FM looking for antenna booster
Jan 29, 2007 (5:00 pm)
My 2006 Accord Hybrid sounded great in the dealer lot when listening to the XM stations - however my local FM stations all have a slight buzz kinda hiss frequently on them.
Not sure if Honda intentionally designed this in - since they are part owners of the satellite radio service.
Anyways I've listened to and am not really interested in the XM stations and want to boost my FM to come in clearer and sound like it does on my old 98 Windstar.
Anyone know of where/how I can add a better radio antenna to this car?.
#24 of 28 isn't $85.00 to program and cut a key.fob kind of steep?
Mar 30, 2008 (7:03 pm)
What is a competive price to pay for cutting and programming a HAH key? My dealer is quoting $85.00 is that competitive? I just purchased a 2006 HAH and need to know what recomendations you would make for me to have the dealership check on my vehicle, it has 48,000 and the seller said he'd pay for anything I found needing attention.
#25 of 28 Remote Starter
May 16, 2008 (12:41 pm)
Is there anybody with a remote starter in their Accord Hybrid? Did the vehicle come with it? Did you have it installed? Was it costly? Have you had any problems with it? What brand is it? I just purchased a 05 and would like to have one installed if possible and if cost is reasonable.
#26 of 28 Full size spare tire? [carcat1]
Dec 06, 2008 (10:32 pm)
I just ordered 1 (Chinese made) wheel ($69) & 1 Fusion tire ($60) plus shipping charge Tire Rack to use as a spare tire for my son's HAH '05. I have been desparately checking with various Honda dealers to try buying this spare tire for a long time. Tire Rack is my favorite store to shop for tires & shocks, etc.
Now I can sleep with my peace of mind when my son drives back home from his college campus 450 miles away from home. So he has both the air pump and the spare tire. Are you sure this full-size spare tire will fit in the area underneath the HAH ' 05 trunk. My son will be home next week. By that time, I have the spare tire for him already. Happy holidays to you and yours.

I'm also interested in adding a remote starter to an Accord Hybrid (2005). Are there any special precautions to consider? Is installation the same as a non-hybrid Accord?
