Yeah the main ashtray light and stereo light fuses are normally located in the cab of the car under the dashboard you should also find that the interior light is not working as this is part of the same link. these fuse boxes can be in some obscure places such as the pillar which is only only visible while the door is open, or under the acctual dashboard.

How do i remove a radio from a 1993 suzuki sidekick


well thats in the FSM. easy peasy
stock radio , we cant do non stock. (vast )
i guess step 4 is it?

heater control page.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If equipped, disable the air bag system. (skip)
  3. Carefully pull the knobs off of the control levers.
  4. On Sidekick, Tracker, Sidekick Sport and X-90 models, grasp the trim panel and pull it off of the instrument panel.
  5. stop.... here.
radio out
electronic version not analog
remove ash tray, and hidden tray screw and tray guide

  1. Pull the heater control lever knobs off of the levers.
  2. On 1996-98 models, separate the heater control trim panel from the control unit by pulling it straight away from the instrument panel. Allow the trim panel to hang loose.
  3. Open the ashtray, then depress the ashtray retainer and remove the ashtray from the sliding track. While it is removed from the vehicle, now would be a good time to wash it out.
  4. Loosen the two retaining screws, then remove the ashtray track from the instrument panel center trim bezel.
  5. On 1989-95 Sidekick and Tracker models, remove the trim panel (Bezel) by prying it carefully away from the instrument panel.
  6. On 1996-98 models, remove the center trim bezel from the instrument panel by loosening the four retaining screws and maneuvering the heater control trim through the appropriate hole. Set the bezel out of the way.
  7. Use a screwdriver to loosen the one rear mounting bracket-to-radio screw; access can be gained to this screw through the ashtray hole.
  8. Remove the four radio front retaining screws, then pull the radio out of the instrument panel just far enough so that the electrical connections on the rear of the radio can be accessed.
  9. Detach and label the wiring from the radio. Also, detach the antenna cable from the rear face of the radio
  10. pull radio. now. (if stock if not stock look for locks)


step 5

Ashtray won't stay closed. how to remove ashtray assembly


The trim panel around the radio / HVAC controls needs to be removed to get to the screws.

To remove the trim panel, open the ash tray and pull on each lower corner. There are 3 spring clips on each side holding the trim in place. The 1st time you do this, they are a bit hard to pull out.

The black circles in this picture are where the spring clips are

If you can just hang the panel to the side or have someone hold it, you can get to the 2 screws on the top of the ashtray assembly ( there are just above the black sides of the ash tray in the picture above ). The ash tray is pulled out and down, it is farther in the dash than it looks. Once out, you can take a look at the springs on the side / back that hold it in, to see if they broke off or fell off.

A4 2007 coin fallen behind ash tray,can undo ash try but will not come all the way out and will now not go back into place, any help


You will probably end up having to break the ashtray to get it out. This happens on most cars when ppl use the ashtray as coil holders. Just pull really hard and rip the tray out, see if you cause any damage. Sorry, but this is the only way ive done it in the past.

Coins are lodged behind the ashtray of my 2001 Acura TL and the ashtray will not close completely. How do you remove the ashtray to get the coins removed?


There should be a tiny tab at the back of the ashtray that you'll need to pry away from the dash and the ashtray should pop out

Hey guy i have a 2000 rl with the navigation system and one day my fuse on the radio blow so i replace it and then now my radio is asking for the code how can i found the serial number to the radio


The serial number may be on the back of the ash tray. Take that serial number and call Acura dealership - they will give you a code. I got a new battery and the same thing happened - needed a code. The serial number is on the back of the radio but the original owner was nice enough to put the sticker on the back of the ashtray. Some times, people put it on the inside lid of the fuse box.

Need code for radio


The radio code should be on a sticker under the ash tray. Slip out the ash tray & look on the bottom of it. You MUST enter the correct code within 10 seconds of turning on the radio or it will lock you out.
