Wfdyer,

go buy a new radio. You can usually get free installation. If you are a do it yourselfer. Then go to crutchfields web site. They are great, they give you the adaptor plates and wire harness to go from what ever radio you get to the car, with no splicing (cutting and reconnecting of wires) They will tell you what radios will not work and tell you what ones will.

Sorry to say it but you have power to the radio, and there are really 3 things a radio needs to work. power, speakers, and a signal. you can check the antena to make sure its not broken or disconnected. but most of the times its the radio

I have a 2003 Cadillac DeVille and the radio won't turn on but the clock display blinks on and off every second. Is this a fuse problem?


Sounds like the radio needs to be reset with program code from dealer, unless you have it written down, this is a Theft deterrent system

Low tire pressure light wont go out


The Low Tire Pressure Indicator must be reset using the Radio. This can only be performed if you have the factory radio installed in the vehicle. This vehicle does not come with an active tire pressure management system, and as such, this light must be reset manually.
1.) Turn Radio Off 2.) Hold down disp button for 10 seconds 3.) Setup Menu should display 4.) Scroll through menu to view "Tire Pressure" (use seek buttons) 5.) Select the Tire Pressure option (Press Radio Button 1) 6.) Reset should be displayed on screen (Press disp button) 7.) Tire Pressure Light should reset

The VIN (vehcile identification number in the radio has to match the VIN for the car it is in. To do this you will need a Tech 2 (GM scanner) to do this, The radio also has to be correct for the car.

2000 cadillac Deville Radio comes on at engine start and when in accessory but only for a brief period of time 10-15 seconds. A slight tone can be heard through the speaker. Any ideas?


It is possible that the radio is going into "a shutdown" mode, possible heat sink issue. This radio is also integrated into the BCM module, a tech II can more than likely diagnose the problem.

Will a cd changer from an 2000 cadillac deville work in an 2001 cadillac deville


Yes it will but your going to have to go tot he dealer to activate your radio. The radio is programed to work with the ECM's VIN number and replacing the radio with another radio will not recognize the Vin number and will not activate.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.
