Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire

Factory cd car stereo not working 1997 pontiac sunfire

I would try to press any button to see if I get power the clock will go on for a few secs then shut off. I think it might be a loose wire. I just don't know wear to find the wire system to the radio cause I don't have a owners manual. Or could it be a fuse ? Where would the fuse box be located in my car? Thanks Kim

The fuse box is under the dash on the driver side but if the clock come on for a little while there is so power going to the unit but maybe only half take the radio out first to make sure all of the plug are in good and if they are the problem is maybe in the radio and call around to a good salavage yard and get you another one but when you go test the new one out at the yard in your car

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.

TRYING TO FIX A DOOR CHIME ON A 2002 PONTIAC SUNFIRE. NEED TO LOCATE WHERE DOOR CHIME IS LOCATED ON THIS VEHICLE


In most vehicles the "chime" is located in the dash around where your 4 way flaser is. It could simply be the door switch also which is a little button that depresses when you close the door to open the circuit shutting the dome light and chime off. They are easy to change and inexpensive. Hope that helps.

2004 sunfire ignition key wire does it have one/ instaling new radio only have constanyt 12 volt radio power on off button does not shut off do i use this wire and where does it go the ignition wire...


Hi, your factory Sunfire wire colors are pasted below. The yellow wire should be accessory. This should connect to the stereo's red power wire. The orange "always hot" wire should connect to the stereo yellow wire--this is only used to keep your station presets in memory. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

How do i change the time on my '99 pontiac sunfire?


Setting the Clock for AM-FM Stereo

Press SET. Within five seconds, press and hold the SEEK down arrow until the correct hour appears on the display. Press and hold the SEEK up arrow until the correct minute appears on the display.


Setting the Clock for All Systems Except AM-FM Stereo

Press and hold HR until the correct hour appears. Press and hold MIN until the correct minute appears. There will be a two-second delay before the clock goes into time-set mode, and the colon on the display will blink while in this mode.

If this is helpful, pleas rate this answer well.
