Face on radio doesn't light up, but other lights on radio do

The tiny little lights that are hard wired to the radio circuit board are burnt out. You will need to have the radio removed and the bulbs replaced. The bulb number from Radio Shack is #7219 and it takes 2 in most radios I have seen. You must have the proper tools and skills to do the replacement or you can ruin the circuit board.

Delco Radio displays and climate control displays remain dark, all GM

Not all correct... This is only current with half of less of the GM clusters and climate controls... Most now have a dimmer resistor pack in them that burn out or become loose

If the radio works then the tiny miniature bulbs inside the radio are burnt out a common problem in GM cars and trucks.

Bose radio light bulb replacement in 2003 Silverado

You have to open up the radio chassis, remove the front circuit panel faceplate (move out of the way)and remove the very tiny 12 light bulbs which are hard wired to the small control panel circuit board behind the radio display. VERY important, use a low temperature soldering pencil and a heat sink in each of the bulbs legs, DO NOT overheat the circuit boards are you will need to replace the radio. You can buy the bulbs from Radio Shack, the part number is 7219 which is a 12 volt 60ma wired terminal base miniature bulb.

radio leds

They are not LED but tiny "back light" display illumination bulbs, they are soldered on the radio circuit board and best left to repair shop to replace as you can ruin the radio if you don't know what you are doing and overheat the boards.
