Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The lights behind my radio went out

The lights that illuminate the radio controls have gone out. It looks to be on a circuit board and I would really like to be able to see what buttons I was pushing after dark. The radio is the original Delco Electronics AM-FM Stereo with compact disk player and auto tuner control. Does anyone know were I can get a new circuit board?

As far as I know only way to get repaired is to send out for replacement. one option would be to get another radio. You can find them on ebay pretty cheap look for a company on there that sells a lot of them and have them guarantee lights are good.

The lights behind the radio controls don't work. Not sure if it is a fuse or light bulb problem.


There is a tiny bulb inside the radio that has burned out, the radio must be removed and the light replaced, this is best left to a radio repair shop as the common practice on new radios is to have the bulb hard wired into the circuit board at the front display.

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.

I just installed a stereo in my 1982 Dodge R50 and all of a sudden my tail lights keep blowing fuses. But my brake lights, blinkers and reverse lights still work. What could the problem be?


There is a wire that runs to the radio to light it up at night, the illumination wire. That wire is also hooked up to the same circuit that the tail lights get power from. If you wired up that illumination wire to the wrong wire on the radio, that will cause it to blow the tail light fuse as soon as you turn on the lights. Double check your wiring, or check to see that the illumination wire is not grounding itself somewhere behind the radio.

Desparately looking for the fuse box in my wife 2002 caravan. nI can only find the one under the hood in the engine.... dash lights went out and can't find the fuse


There is no fuse specifically for the instrument cluster illumination lights. They are controlled by the BCM.

Is it only the instrument cluster that has no illumination or do the rest of the items like the radio and heat controls also loose there illumination lighting?

When my headlights come on at night, the dash lights will not come on and the radio illumination behind the clock goes out. Why is this?


Check the dimmer switch to your dash light. If there turned down, your dash and radio illumination light will be dime or not working at all. Keep me posted, be glad to know if it is the dimmer switch turned down or you dimmer switch has gone bad. Good luck

Infinit g35 radio and AC does not work, already replaced the fuse. help


a circuit board behind the radio is to blame.

6disc changer goes out first then bad signals are sent thru circuit board. components that help control radio n AC burn out eventually, causing the problem you have.

in my car (2003 G35 sedan) i heard a popping sound from radio while driving. my 6disc changer had not been working for a while now and i didnt care or know about this problem until it went further damaging. i had an ipod. well after pop, radio n AC buttons n lights stop working. AC turns on full blast and cannot be turned off. radio only controlled from steering wheel.

you have to ship your radio or drive your G35 to a factory car stereo repair shop. they are hard to come by so thats why you usually have to ship the piece out.

Lights are dim in the clock and cd panel


The circuit board in your radio has fried. This circuit board powers not only the radio but also the lights for all of climate controls. Honda is aware of the problem and has extended the warranty on the stereo to 107K miles. Your local Honda dealership can get the replacement circuit board that also has modified resistor placement to eliminate this from happening in the future.

No lights on heater/fan panel.


Yes, there is illumination behind the heater control panel.

You need to remove the center inst cluster upper (radio) & lower finish (heater) panels to gain access to the heater control; the light socket is behind the heater panel.
