Our take on the Metra 99-7803 Dash and Wiring Kit

by Jon Paulette

Your 2003-2007 Honda Accord is a great car, but the console design makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's dash and wiring kit replaces the factory radio panel, allowing you to install an aftermarket DIN-sized (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in the Accord's dash panel. It retains all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls, in vehicles with either single- or dual-zone controls.

The kit includes all climate controls found in the Accord, and its gray finish is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash. The LCD display and all controls on the adapter are backlit when you turn your headlights on, and you can adjust the color to your tastes. All factory functions are retained. Warranty: 1 year.

Notes: The package includes a harness that plugs directly from your Honda into the Axxess ASWC adapter (not included), allowing you to retain your steering wheel audio controls with a new car stereo. For the display backlighting to work with the headlights, the adapter's illumination wire must be connected to the new car stereo's illumination wire.

Features

Overview: The Metra 99-7803G OEM Integration Kit allows you to replace your 2003-2007 Honda Accord's factory radio with an aftermarket head unit to improve the overall sound quality of your car audio system. The OEM Integration Kit features a scratch-resistant matte black finish and fits aftermarket Single-DIN or Double-DIN head units. The 99-7803G retains your factory steering wheel controls with the addition of the Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (120ASWC1, sold separately). Your vehicle's entire climate control panel is integrated into the Metra 99-7803G; including an LCD screen (single and dual climate control is retained).

Note: Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

Replacement Pocket: The door on the factory pocket below the radio will not function properly with this new OEM Integration Kit installed. As an alternate solution, Metra offers the 88-00-7803 replacement pocket (1208807803, sold separately).

works great!! 05 accord coupe

Written By cameron, crescent city ca on Friday, September 19, 2014
 
I wasnt sure how i would like this kit reading some other reviews. But i love it. It does everything it says it does. It went together easy with my jvc ddin cd player. I have manual air/heater. It seems like it doesnt push the air out quite as hard as the stock air did. But it still works perfect. I also bought the pocket for under the stereo witch is ok it seems to get a lil hot when running the heat. I think ima put the stock pocket bk in with the door left up. It can with all the harnesses to basically plug and play it. The dash kit or the buttons didnt feel as cheap as other reviews iv read. They dont fell like the buttons will fall off it feels pretty sturdy. And i cant beat half off the price with a stereo. BEST PRICE IV SEEN!! AND CRUTCHFIELD IS THE BEST AT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
Pros:
Easy to install and half price from anywere else.
Cons:
None. The dash kit is great.

Pretty Awesome!

Written By DRod, Bronx, NY on Saturday, May 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This was made specifically for the accord. The radio in my 2005 Accord finally gave out, it didn't even display time anymore :( I didn't want to put one in the compartment below and leave the blank and useless radio up top so this did exactly what I needed. It also looks great, I put a double din receiver in (pioneer fh-x700bt) and it looks beautiful. Pretty good deal if you buy both the receiver and the metro adapter together plus comes with instructions. Took me a little over 2 hours to take everything apart and put this in with the receiver and I'm a complete rookie never having done anything to any car.

Someone below said that there aren't any light up buttons, but there are, all the buttons light up when headlights are turned on, looks great.

The hardest part was probably shoving the little compartment back under the unit after installing it oh and having to saw off a piece of the dash, you have to cut pretty close to where the clips will go in order to make it fit, so be careful.

Tools used: Screwdriver (flat and phillips) Needle-nose plier small saw or something to cut off piece of dash Plier that can strip the cables of the receiver Flashlight
Pros:
It works really well with the heat/ac Can change the colors to match your receiver perfectly can put in double din receiver matches dash
Cons:
The compartment under the dash stays open or closed, I opted for open, they sell an additional compartment but I didn't know about it until after I installed it, I don't think its necessary although it might look nicer. Doesn't have a clock on it, which would've been nice, but the receiver does so its ok.

Best Choice for Honda

Written By lundybear09, Gilbert, AZ on Wednesday, March 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I own a 2006 Honda Accord, and I desperately wanted to put a sound system in, but due to the fact that the radio and climate control systems are all integrated this made it extremely difficult. After doing my research, I found that Metras kit beats everything else. So after installing the kit I have no complaints. I am going on 1 month now with the kit installed and I have no problems. GREAT KIT!
Pros:
Allows Honda Owners to have aftermarket stereo
Cons:
No complaints

Metra 99-7803G

Written By Anonymous, Coatesville,Pa on Saturday, February 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
So I've had this in for about 2 weeks now, and the best I can say is that I like it. I wanted an in dash DVD player, so this was my only option. The kit matches the rest of the dash color, it fits in very well, although I did have to cut a piece that held up the OEM radio. The kit keeps full functionality of the air conditioning controls, which I'm glad it did. The only thing that slightly irritated me was the price for it.
Pros:
The only way to get a double din radio in the dash, keeps air conditioning controls & ease of use.
Cons:
Not worth the $$

The Metra 99-7803 Factory Integration Adapter fits my 2003 Honda Accord LX like it was built for the car. Installation with the included instructions was easy with a few plastic trim removal tools of my own. Fit and function is also good.

Used in a 07 honda accord. The fit and color were very nice but the functionality leaves a lot on the table. I also had to put spacers in on the top mounting screws for best look.

Metra 99-7803 Dash and Wiring Kit

Written By Anonymous, Cincinnati, OH on Sunday, December 29, 2013
 
This adapter works as advertised. It supports both automatic climate control and manual. BE WARNED if you have a manual climate control and you plug it in to the auto by mistake you will PERMANENTLY BREAK IT. This is not mentioned anywhere in their manual. To install the adapter you have to cut out a cross piece of plastic in the dash which was a bit of an unsettling surprise. The adapter doesn't allow for the factory pocket that has a closing door to be reinstalled so make sure to get the accompanying open pocket. Aside from this the adapter has proved capable of performing the intended functions.
Pros:
Does what it said it would do
Cons:
Can break it if you aren't careful with the initial plug installation, lose factory pocket, have to hacksaw a piece of plastic out of your dash

Acceptable double din mount

Written By Matt F, Pierre, sd on Thursday, December 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The product fulfills its purpose. However, the design of the product makes the factory pocket storage under the stereo useless unless you purchase the companies adaptor kit. Seems as those this could have been manufactured to keep all factory features of the car.

In addition, the AC controls are not very intuitive and take more getting used to than I was expecting.
Pros:
Allows double DIN installation of stereo
Cons:
Loses storage pocket for no good reason. AC controls not very intuitive.

Does the job well

Written By DennisM, Frederick, MD on Monday, December 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I chose this option because I did not want to install a stereo in the accessory pocket and have a useless radio on the dash. I have only a small amount of experience installing car stereo equipment, but this installation was very easy and took no more than an hour or so. The ability to change the color of the backlight to match the stereo is a plus. All climate controls work just as they should and the plastic matches the rest of the dash very well.

I was skeptical at first, but I am very happy with this Metra kit. The color and texture blends very well with the rest of the dash, the HVAC connections and buttons work just as they are supposed to. Installation was moderately easy.

I gave it a 4/5 because it does not sit fully flush with the dash, but it is not too noticeable.
Pros:
Nice look, Moderately easy to install, easy to use HVAC controls, nice position for aftermarket radio
Cons:
Does not sit completely flush with the rest of dash

Only Fix to My Non-Working Stock Stereo

Written By sks06e, Clearwater, FL on Sunday, December 01, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My stock stereo in my 2003 Accord finally died. I didn't want to get a harness kit to fit into the storage pocket as I have a manual transmission and it would sit right behind the stick shift. I got this Metra installation kit to replace the stereo and climate controls. I had one of the guys from work install it and, with about a 45 min break in the middle, only took about 2 hours. I've been using it for about 3 weeks and it works perfectly.
Pros:
It works and fit perfectly
Cons:
None so far

Easy install

Written By Jeff M, Chicago, IL on Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased this item to go in my 2005 honda accord. Without this adapter you will have to install any aftermarket stereo in the lower pocket under the factory radio. It got old quickly having to look far down by the shifter to control my new stereo. This item allows you to remove the factory radio and bring my new stereo at a reasonable distance. The product is a bit pricey, but it is very easy to install and works perfectly. I'm happy with the unit but it is an expensive piece. I will note that I was able to fit the pocket back in place but you will not be able to open and close the door. Don't waste your money buying the pocket made by Metra. They will tell you the factory one wont fit, but this isn't true.
Pros:
Easy install Brings my new stereo at a decent eye level Quality product
Cons:
Expensive

I had this kit installed about 2 weeks ago in my 2007 Honda Accord. I was skeptical about getting it from some of the reviews but I gave it shot anyway because I wanted a double din head unit to fit comfortably in my dash. The kit actually blends in pretty good with the rest of dash and looks pretty good. My only concern is the a/c unit controls....since installing this kit, my a/c blower doesn't seem to blow out hard like it did before with the factory.
Pros:
Fits in the dash perfect and blends well
Cons:
A/C doesn't blow air on high setting...may need reprogramming.

Full dash Kit for 2005 honda Accord

Written By Tom, Ontario California on Tuesday, June 11, 2013
 
Well I can say this kit went in my mothers 2005 Honda Accord with out a hitch. Later that night when I was driving the car I notice the push buttons lit up and was easy to read and use for myself and when I returned the car to my mother who is in her 60s with weak eye sight shehad no problems working the AC controls. However there are some pros and cons with this kit.
Pros:
Easy install took less than a half hour for me to install it. Nice texture real close to stock feel. Ac controls self programed itself came with a small pocket for use with a single din radio.
Cons:
Wish the buttons were labled a little better to know what button turns the unit on and off. I found that the button marked with a pictur of the large fan turn the unit on while you had to push a differant button to turn it off. I wish it was just one button for on and off. But since my mom can live with it so can i since i wont have to field phone calls from her. The next con I have is it is not possible to use the stock flip up pocket door underneath the radio it would then get 5 stars.

Worked perfectly

Written By Hugo Boss, Downey, CA on Thursday, May 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This item was installed on a 2007 Honda Accord. I didn't know that it was required because that's an older model car and usually you just swap the stereo out. But I am so glad I decided to order this because it works perfectly! Although I must admit I had to get a 2nd one because the original one I got was defective. Only took about 5 days for me to get the replacement from Crutchfield and that one worked magnificently.

It controls the AC and heat pretty easily, was super easy to program as well - just one button. I like that you can adjust the color of the display unit to match the stereo color.
Pros:
Easy to program, blends well with factory interior of car
Cons:
Not compatible with the bottom closing hatch of the factory Honda. You'll need to buy a replacement compartment or leave it as is, but it won't be able to close anymore.

Don't buy if you have a Automatic Climate control

Written By Kris, Houston on Tuesday, May 14, 2013
 
Your guy's system may be good for the manual AC systems in the Honda Accord but for the automatic climate control systems you are not good at all. Now my AC blows cold then it will blow hot air until it decided to blow cold air again it won't just shut off or adjust airflow accordingly like the factory controllers do. I am very disappointed in you guys. The people at Mobile One had to keep my car an extra week just working on your harness. They had to go through two different kits until they got this one to sort of work. The first one blew only cold air and would not take a programing update. The second one blew only hot air and it too would not take an update. Now the third one appeared to work in the shop but when put into real driving around use it failed. Anyone who is thinking about buying this to upgrade their Accord and they have the automatic climate control (dual or single) stay away until they get this thing fixed.
Pros:
It is a solution to upgrade the factory radio.
Cons:
It doesn't work on the automatic climate control Accords at all. I am returning mine.

Don't recommend it

Written By Paulh, Indianapolis, IN on Tuesday, April 30, 2013
 
I had/have the problem with the OEM radio turning on and draining the battery. Put in this adapter and in 2 days i had no fan on the heat and A/C called and Crutchfield sent another. Still same problem after new installed, had to replace blower motor resistor! After a few days it blew resistor again. It was under warranty so auto part store replaced. Over next 2 months it blew through 5 more resistors. ONe of them went out in 30 minutes! Auto parts store said in the 12 years he's worked there, never had one go bad. Cust Service said no one has had this problem and send me another adapter. Got the new one and packaging had changed, and supposedly can update firmware through usb, but not easy to get to usb on back of adapter. At this point i just said forget it, the auto parts place wouldn't give me another resistor just gave my money back and sent me on my way. Had to goto another store to get resistor. I have since gone back to the OEM radio, it doesn't have the features of the alpine which i loved, but would much rather have heat and a/c than a radio. I just make sure i turn the radio off before i get out of the car. Crutchfield support and customer service were great, never argued about the problems and were quick to send a replacement piece so no complaints about them at all, just don't recommend this adapter. Not much else you can do on the accord other than put in bottom pocket and leave OEM stereo dead above.
Pros:
None
Cons:
No fan for heat and a/c after installed.

Metra 99-7803 Dash and Wiring Kit

Written By Gordon, Manhattan ks on Thursday, April 18, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The adapter is alright. It doesn't match the brown color of my car interior but their weren't any other options. The auto button gets stuck almost every time and I have to pick it out with my finger. The buttons are terrible for the most part and is a huge downgrade from the stock climate control panel. It doesn't even look fancy so I'm really not impressed at all. My new radio is great though! I love the radio but the adapter is just plain awful. Hard to use buttons and looks like a 3rd grader tried to meld it together. It's cool though, work with what ya got!
Pros:
It works
Cons:
Just about most things about it. Buttons are awful, auto gets stuck and it won't turn off unless you can dig out the auto button. It's ugly and doesn't match the car. It's extremely expensive for a crappy piece of plastic that does no justice to the car.

it works, but

Written By Ampzilla, Tampa, FL on Sunday, April 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This adapter works, but the fit and finish make it look cheap. The controls are OK, but the display is very small and difficult to view when driving and wanting to change the air flow mode or just verify the settings. Installation required a Dremel tool to cut the dash mounts to fit.

Overall the dash adapter fits but lowers the aesthetics of the interior.
Pros:
Adapts the Dual Mode AC and allows a single DIN aftermarket radio to be installed. It works for the most part.
Cons:
Looks are everything and this looks cheap. Color and texture are so far off.

Honda Accord Factory Integration Adapter

Written By Anonymous29, Daytona Beach, FL on Friday, April 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Overall takes a little time & patience to install, I think looks simplified & better than factory controls, & the fitting fits seamlessly into the factory dash, but you can't reinstall factory pocket folding door on bottom just the pocket. Also if there is any wires coming from the back of the stereo (Like usb, ipod wire, or hooking cables from cabin to back of stereo, etc...) then you can run them from/to back of stereo through center pocket more easily without the folding pocket door installed (for instance, I have a extra usb cable from the back of my stereo to the center pocket which in my stereo will hook-up and/or charge a usb device if needed).
Pros:
Fits seamlessly/Looks a little better than stock/All buttons light up at night/Can change color of lcd to your liking/All factory settings are still intact
Cons:
Takes some getting used to/Have to press mode a couple times to cycle through fan modes/Takes a little time to install/Can't keep factory fold up pocket door, but still retains factory pocket

Very satisified

Written By Joe T, Goose Creek, SC on Friday, March 08, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
We had the problem with the Honda radio turning on by itself and draining the battery. We read online where new Honda OEM radios had the same problem. We saw this kit online from Crutchfield and purchased it with a Kenwood receiver. Installation was fairly easy, just make sure you follow all the instructions one step at a time. Patience is a virtue.

One reviewer says it is not illuminated, it is. When the lights are on each button is individually back-lit. Our car does not have dual controls but both temperature controls work. Be careful making up the wiring harnesses and you should have no electrical problems.
Pros:
Fit is excellent, looks as good as factory. It's my wife's car, she loves it.
Cons:
Electrical stuff makes me nervous. Always disconnect the battery.

installed this adapter in a 2004 honda accord coupe along with a clarion cx501 radio and axxess aswc steering wheel adapter. hardest part was yanking out the oem radio. followed all directions and was really surprised when every control worked the way it should. the harness supplied was perfect, no splicing required.

What else are you going to do?

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
OK here we go 1. looks almost as good as factory 2. fits really well 3. came with everything needed 4. works great 5. The display has adjustable colors However it is a little bright at night. 6. I installed a Sony WX-GT80UI along with this and the lower pocket drags on the bottom of the radio when you open or close it(I don't think this would happen with a single din unit) 7. The climate control buttons are NOT back lit so they are hard to see at night.8. The screws that came with the Radio are to short to use with the mounting arms that come with this unit I had to get some longer screws(BE CAREFUL THEY ARE NOT TO LONG AND DAMAGE YOUR STEREO UNIT) In my opinion this is the only viable option as the lower pocket install leaves a lot to be desired in the way of how it looks plus then you lose the handy storage area that I use all the time.

05 Accord Coupe
Pros:
Works well,looks good Only available Factory Integration Adapter
Cons:
Display a little bright at night Buttons not back lit Only available Factory Integration Adapter

2 questions already asked

Does anyone know if you could make this kit work for an 06 accord coupe w/ navi? I know it says its for ones without navi but I like the kit and would like to make it work if I could because my navi is messed up and out of date. [ Sam  Mar 17, 2014 ]

  • You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Jeff Staff  Mar 18, 2014 ]
