Q: radio comes on but the audio is gone on 2003 Honda Accord

the radio comes on but it doesn't play. the volume goes up but there is no sound. Sometimes it may play for 3 days and then some times it doesn't play for 11-12 days. This started in 2009. The CD doesn't play when this occurs. Also the ABS light comes on and stays on if I am in stop and go traffic. The mechanic at DCH Honda thinks it may be a fuse. The panel lights on the radio and by the gears come on and off.

You have a few issues going on here, or they may all be related, but this is going to take a diagnosis by a technician. Your going to need to pay for an hour of diagnosis time at a shop to figure this out.
This happens on my 2003 also. I have a short circuit under the driver's seat that is causing my problem.
