How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

I just purchased a 1999 Explorer. I am looking for the code to change the keyless entry for the doors. It says in the book that it is taped to the computer module. Where is it? Also, the display on the...


Keyless entry code can be found in the rear of the vehicle...driver side tire jack compartment...look on the computer module inside the compartment & it should be on a sticker there.

Radio display is controlled by the dimmer switch -(the round mousewheel looking thing by the steering column) fiddle with that & see if that brings the display back.

Display on auto radio is not working


unfortunately they are right,i worked at a mazda dealer-my advice would be to get an aftermarket cd player-save in cost
if you are worried about it voiding your warranty it wont-they only time an aftermarket part would void a warranty is if a problem came about that was caused by the aftermarket part(ex-cd player)then that repair would not be covered under warranty but your warranty would still be valid

Radio wiring different than everywhere on the web says it is.


the power amp is usually under the back seat.your stereo sounds like the 2000 premium model.take the radio out and go to ford and they will match it up to get you the right info for an aftermarket harness.the ford service manual has the pin out,and you can wire it all from that data.

Display wont siow on radio


if the display is blank you will need to send it to a repair facility. your ford dealer should be able to give you an estimate over the phone, or tell you locally where to take it.
the steering wheel controls will not work with an aftermarket radio. besides if you have a 6-disc player, it is probably a fairly nice audio unit.
i would at least see how much to fix it.

No sound


I just installed an aftermarket radio in a 93 mustang and I had to hook up the blue wire for the power amp to work. I am not an expert just passing on what fixed my problem. Good luck
