Back light for the radio

My radio still works but at night I am unable to see the channel as the back light does not work. Is this due to a fuse?

Most likely the backlight bulb is burned out. If you're brave, you can replace it yourself as I once did on a Ford radio. Usually the bulb can be bought from the dealer or perhaps from an electronic supply place.

The lights behind the radio controls don't work. Not sure if it is a fuse or light bulb problem.


There is a tiny bulb inside the radio that has burned out, the radio must be removed and the light replaced, this is best left to a radio repair shop as the common practice on new radios is to have the bulb hard wired into the circuit board at the front display.

Radio will turn off after hitting bump


Believe it or not this problem can be caused by the neutral safety switch being defective under the hood on the transmission, There also was a recall for the light problem. Contact your local Ford dealers service dept for details on this recall.

I changed stereo and now the dashlights do not work


Check your park light fuse. You may have blown the fuse for the dashlights/park lights by accidentally grounding the night illumination wire, located in the radio wiring. That wire runs from the dash lights to the radio, to illuminate the radio at night. Alternately, if the park light fuse keeps blowing when you replace it, you might've hooked that night light wire up to the wrong wire on your radio.

99 Solara Radio Light not functioning


Check your fuse, sometimes integrated into other electrical parts of the vehicle. Possibly interior light fuse; cigarette lighter fuse; radio fuse?

I jump start my wifes car at night with the cables backwards


I found that while checking my fuses that i had pulled out what looked like a black plastic "fuse puller" that was actually some kind of jumper. I had accidentally re-installed it reversed. I reversed it back to its original position and all lights, clock, radio, etc.. work normal now.

Radio does not turn on. the clock shows,the light


The memory wire of the radio,(the power for the clock and channel settings) is usually connected to the same circuit as the cigarette lighter. (there is a seperate fuse for radio) Check your cigarette lighter socket for damage or dirt, etc. could be causing the memory fuse to blow. Also check your cig lighter accesories (like cell phone chargers,etc.)

P.S. The backlight is also a seperate circuit (connected to interior light/parking light circuit)
