Just bought metra 99-7803G and Pioneer AVH X3500BHS

Hey fellas,

I just purchased the Metra 99-7803G kit and the Pioneer AVH x3500BHS DVD radio. The plan is to install this on my own. The metra kit was 202$ on amazon and the pioneer was about 250$ price matched at best buy. I also ordered the wiring harness for the accord. I plan to install this some time tomorrow so I am looking for advice from someone who has possibly done this before or who could point me towards a thread on here that could offer some insight. Based on the metra installation guide available here

and the instructions from pioneer, it seems pretty straight forward.

Does anyone have anything that could help me out?


Also I have a 2003 accord lx i4.

AND if anyone was wondering there is absolutely nothing wrong with my factory radio and climate control I will be looking to sell it if i can get it out without damaging it.

-Thanks.

you will like the 3500bhs. I have one in my Tundra and it is really easy to use, I say the best interface out right now. I sold my clarion nx702 and have been happy with the pioneer.

the dash kit 99-7803g

Hi guys,
I am an owner of a 2003 accord LX. but when i installed the metra dash kit 99-7803g my A/C is not working, and it just displays a number on the metra dash kit, is this normal because my car is not a dual climate ?

Are you sure the harness is plugged into the manual AC slot in the back of the metra unit?

Did you read the directions about programming the unit?


After making all connections start the
vehicle. Press and hold the rear defrost
button until the LCD display starts
flashing. At this point the kit is learning
the type vehicle it’s connected to (so
don’t touch anything!). The LCD will
stop flashing after 30 to 60 seconds
and the kit is now programmed. This
is so the kit identifies whether it is in a
manual or auto climate system

Good to say? They serve a purpose while looking like dirty ass.

It's not pretty but it serves its purpose and after having it I would never go back to stock. Avoid those nav units on ebay/amazon unless you like to throw your money away. Look up the Autosoul thread.

Guys, does anyone know if this Metra kit works with the OEM lower pocket? I see that Metra also sells the lower pocket, but am not sure if it's a must.

I have the Metra in my car and I kept the factory lower pocket. The only problem with it is you have to keep the pocket door open because there isn't enough clearance for door to swing shut.
