My radio works on my 2004 jeep grand Cherokee but the time and station don't light up do I need to replace the radio


any thing can be fixed.! (my job that, before retired)
the question (only) is time and money?
if the labor is more than a new upgraded radio.
why fix old.?
is the dash dimmer working, and all other lights on dash bright
the the radio has issues. (stock) if not stock the wires are bad behind radio. the dial wire.
does the radio work? and dial right, can you see the stations, with a flash light, ? then the back light is burned out.
if VFD display or LCD dead , big time $$$ fix.

on mine , 04 i put a new , media only head end.
am/fm , USB , flashcard, aux in, radio
and have micro usb there, very tiny with 4000 songs.
no more discs and radio head is very tiny.

I have a ford fiesta Zetec s and i have a aftermarket stereo wired up but when i turn it on it lights up but no sound please help?


in all modes. new aftermarket or 1970.
the radio will play with radio , cassette, CD, or USB stick and even AUX to the iphone.
so are all dead? if yes,
that means.
the power pin is dead, (lights up does that mean dial lamps or you can see station tuning work, if just back lights that is not radio power
that is the park lights power.
the radio has power wire, main, that must be 12vdc or the radio and amp will be dead.
missing inline fuse. or blown?
most radios have 3 power pins and 1 ground
1: 12vdc power. main
2: 12vdc park lamp circuit, for dial.
3: memory.
4 : ground wire.
take all 4 to work right.
takes 1 and 4 to play music. at say USB port.

I have the code to unlock the but it in the off position and i can't enter the code how do i reset the radio


. Every time you disconnect the battery means that the radio thinks some one is stealing it so the anti theft code kicks in. Next turn on the ignition to accessories or the run position and either turn the volume knob or push it in . The radio dial will light up and ask for a code . Enter that code as per the instructions and then the radio will work. If the radio dial doesn't light up check for fuse and wiring problems

Radio lights are out


what lights, the dial back lights, is it stock>?
the radios have 3 power sources
1 for radio and amp.
2: dial lamps (dim,) if the other cars dim-able park lamps work then
the radio lamps are bad, or not connected (1 wire)
3: memory. power.

my guess is the rad back lamps are dead.
so turn on the parking lights (Head ligths 1st click)
does dashlight up.? no, turn the dimmmer up.
do they light now? yes, and radio no?
if no radio lamp now, the lamp is bad or wired wrong or the fuse blew
that the dial feed wires to.
if not stock, any thing is possible, (infinity)

No radio display


Check your dimmer dial by the head light switch, it may be on the off or very low position.
I don\'t think a fuse would be the problem if the radio still works.
If not then you may have a bad display on your radio and it may be time to replace the radio for a kicking stereo you always wanted...

Light behind "Fan Speed" Dial burnt out?


It can be replaced with just bulbs. They are a pain in the **** to get ordered correctly but the are serviceable. Also, you can change the shifter light bulbs as well, just turn the bulb 30 degrees or so and pull out gently.

Radio


The car dash probably lights the radio dial so that it will dim down with the dash light dimmer. The radio light may still be switched on and off by the radio switch but its a separate circuit. Check the fuse for the circuit that powers the radio itself. It should have its own fuse. Its likely that the radio has failed and will have to be removed and checked on a bench but check the fuse and check the power and antenna connectors in the back of the radio as these sometimes come loose from vibration. Always replace a fuse with one of the exact same amperage, voltage rating, and time delay if any as the original. If a fuse is blown the cause may be internal to the radio or it may be a problem with the car wiring to the radio. If blown check the wiring leading to the radio for worn insulation near sharp edges in the dash.
