Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Radio LCD readout

The readout on the radio is fading in and out. Sometimes it will be on and sometimes the radio is totally black but plays just fine. Is this something fixable?

The LCD is back-lighted by a tiny bulb inside the radio chassis, pull the radio out, remove the sheet metal top cover, you will see a small twist in/out bulb socket at the rear of the radio display screen, remove it, take the bulb to a good full service parts store like NAPA or the dealer, the bulb is about $2.

Radio continues to fade in and out, plays for awhile fades out


Need more information on this if possible.

It may be the speed volume is enabled on your radio, does it fade out when you start to come to a stop? Some vehicles have a speed volume setting in their radios in which the radio raises and lowers the volume during driving conditions, like when your comming to a stop, the volume will automatically lower and during faster driving speeds will rise to a higher volume.

Hope this helps

The radio screws holding the radio are not tight enough. to eliminate this problem remove the radio and adjust the pressure screw in the rear of the radio so it comes out farther>. if the radio is not far enough in the compartment to push in that button the radio controls will not work
