Re: VRCD400-SDU in Crown Vic, Light but wont work..??
A Bad Ground Wire on the Stereo will Cause this Problem. Have the Installer Run an Extension Ground Straight to the Battery and it Should be OK. Let me Know. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

1) you must connect the switch in series, in tha way you will not have this problem, and you must add of course the relais, for to avoid the spark, and arching by load .Now you have connected in paralell.
They are changed from within the engine compartment... at the rear of the headlight bazels... if it's the side on the battery you may have to remove it.... also don't touch the bulbs with your fingers as that shortens the life of them.
Go to your local auto parts store where you can purchase a Ford audio removal tool. It looks like a wire shaped "U" that is inserted in the holes on face of audio system ..Follow the directions for use , you will find it a pretty easy task with the correct tool..
The quickest way to find a short circuit is by putting a bulb in place of the fuse. Anytime the time the bulb lights there is a load. And if the load is a shorted wire the brightness of the bulb will give you a hint. So while you're at it, finding a 'short' is a quicky...keep your eyes on the bulb. gotcha!
