How do i turn off the clock light on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am? My clock light wont turn off, and its draining my battery extremely fast.

The LED light would only use a tiny amount of power to stay lit, much less than any small bulb in the car. You might have a poor battery, or you might have a drain on the battery from something else staying on. Any parts store could test your battery for free. That's where I would start, making sure the battery can hold a full charge.
Is the clock light in a radio display? Maybe an amplifier or something connected with the radio is staying on? If the clock is a separate fixture (and I don't even know if they still put such things on cars lately- a separate clock, I mean), then the clock could be unplugged. I don't think there would be a way to turn the light off.

If you have a known good battery and it is still draining fast, there are YouTube videos and explanations on how to hunt down an unintended draw. Mechanics may refer to it as a "parasitic drain"
but it is really an unintended drain. Your car's computers, and security systems, and radio and clock memory will always require a very small amount of battery power when the car is shut off, but that amount is measured in milli-amps, very small fractions of 1 amp of power. usually less than 100 milliamps which is 0.100 amps, or 0.1 amp- see, much less than one single amp. A small bulb like under the dash may be rated at around 2 amps or up to 5 amps for typically larger bulbs. A small bulb might actually drain the battery over several hours. Headlights , you are talking lots of amps, I'm not certain but say around 20 amps. So you see, your clock light would have to have a bad short in the wiring to actually drain a good battery. The light itself would not. This is just me talking off the top of my head, I'm not an expert on electronics or electrical circuits, but I think the information is accurate.

Replace headlights on pontaic grand am

open the hood ,,look where the back of the head light is. there are wires .there is a light socket .it should have three wires .turn the light socket either to the right or left genly pull the socket out of the light assembly ,un plug the wires from the bulb ,? be care full when you take the new light bulb out of the wrapper .,do not touch the clear part of the bulb ,you can use a paper towel or tissue to hold it until you are ready to place it in the light assembly .if you do end up touching the bulb clean it with rubbing alchol ,,,the reason not to touch the bulb with youre fingers is that the oil from youre skin will not get on the bulb..and that bulb will lats about a week and burn out .because th oil from youre fingers traps the heat in and the light heats up to much .if you need the whole light changed there screws holding the light on .

Honda odyssy in dash clock light failure2004

There is a bulb in the clock but you will have to remove the instrument cluster to get to it. This involves removing some molded trim panels around the steering column and it is not very easy. Yeah, I don't think Honda could have made changing a clock light bulb any harder.

For the error code on your stereo--look in your paper work you got when you purchased the car and see if you can find a radio code in there. Check the owner's manual for a sticker with the code stuck on a page. You'll need to input the code to get your stereo to turn on. Don't have or can't find? You may have to remove the radio to get the serial number on it and call your local Honda dealer.

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
