Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Can't see anything on the clock/Radio Display

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix my car is running fine and I can hear my radio but I can't actually see the clock or which station it's on. I can use the volume and seek, tune etc and the buttons on my steering wheel but can't see anything on the clock/radio display. How do I get it so I can see what time it's is and which station i am listening to?

The radio display is lighted by a tiny bulb inside the radio, to change this u must remove the radio from the dash and take off the top sheet metal cover, under that u will see a small twist in bulb socket, replace that little bulb, the bulb is about $2 and avail at any full sevice auto parts store.

Are you sure there are no blown fuses? There are several that feed power to the radio. Are you sure the dimmer switch didn't accidentally get turned down?

The wires will be the same. The problem is that the radio you bought may have theftlock on it. ( it would be printed on the front). If so you don't have the code for it. there is a slight chance that it will work, probably 1 in a 100. If it doesn't and the display reads LOC not LOCK, then you can take it to a dealer and they can recode it for you. Costs about 50 dollars here. Indy

Aux input location


Though I'm sure there is an AUX button on the radio, there isn't actually an auxillary port on a 2007 Grand Prix stock radio.I'm sorry to say, but you would have to get an aftermarket radio.

The display does not work on the radio


Odd about the speakers not working only when its hot out but anyways,
There is a bulb in the radio that shines throught the LCD panel to show the display, it could be burnt out, or just not getting connection.
You can rig up a bulb in the radio fairly easy, just go hit up your local Radio Shack, or go on Ebay and search for "GM Radio Bulb" they are about 20 bucks. 
For the rear speakers, i'd check the connection through the trunk to make sure they aren't loose.

Clock light burned out


You will need to pull the clock, the bulb is on the back, any parts store will carry it, it is a mini peanut bulb.

Radio in 2001 grand prix works but the light for the clock and radio stations does not display.


The problem is the light bulb behind the screen if you pull the radio out of the dash & pull the radio apart the bulb is right behind the screen with a little work you can get it out, and you can buy it at a pontiac/gm garage. Part # 16208443. Good Luck
