04 EXL-RES -- Stereo works, no sound from speakers

3257 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  JSMCO
Basically the dear wife left the passenger window open the other day and we got an absurd 4 inches of rain as it stormed all night long. I have taken care of everything, but the sound to the speakers no longer works. The Cd player does, DVD, etc -- even the kids can watch the DVD player with headphones (so I know audio is getting pushed somewhere).

Is this something simple? Someone told me an amp, but I cannot find one anywhere, and do not see anywhere online where I could purchase one. I am no audiophile, but I am cheap -- and taking to a dealer to repair is not an option. ANY assistance of any kind would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The internal ICs that drive the speakers might have gotten fried. The headphone circuit I believe gets the audio from the PreAmp and then the Amp ICs amplify the signal to drive the speakers. I am by no means an audio tech but I think you might need to get a new radio (used from Auto Parts Market would do I suppose).
Thanks for the reply. I called crutchfield to order a new stereo and was told my DVD player will cease to work if I go with a different stereo... SO now I am on the hunt for a new or used OEM. Found a few on uneedapart looking at salvage yard ones. Do I just need one from a 2004 EX model, or is the unit specific to EXL-"RES"...
It's odd that they would all go out as there are multiple drivers for the six speakers. Did the water get in the audio unit? Do the accessary sockets worl? That line also feeds the audio unit. Passenger F9 and drivers F8. The audio unit is different on the RES.
I know this is an old thread but hopefully this will help. I was having the same problem with my 2007 Odyssey Touring and searched all over this and other forums and found many other Honda owners having the exact same frustrating issue. Nothing worked. I replaced the fuses # 5 and #32 on the drivers side. No good. I installed a new radio. Did not fix it. Could not find any fuse labeled "Amp" or "Speakers" or similar anywhere. Finally I posted my own thread and an awesome person with the handle of "PostalTech" said to check fuse #5 in the small underhood fuse box. It was a 20 AMP fuse labeled "Premium" and it was blown. Also a 7.5 amp fuse for rear entertain was blown. Replaced both and sound restored. Your fuse boxes or labels may not be exactly the same as mine but I learned the lesson before I start chasing down more complicated problems to pull and check all fuses before moving on to more exotic solutions. Hope this helps others!
