Question about 2001 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

When the headlights are turned on, the clock/radio display cannot be seen. Would this be a fuse that needs to be replaced or a burned-out bulb, and, if it is a burned-out bulb, how do you go about replacing it?

I think the problem is in your dimmer switch. It controls the dash backlights as well as the display on the radio. Is this a factory radio and are you dash backlights bright?

    All of the other dash lights are bright and the dimmer switch is turned all the way up. It is only this particular light that cannot be seen.

We can think of fuses in rare case as all the fuses for electrical parts wont go faulty at same time. Initially1)when many electrical things stop at the same time, always
check battery, battery connections, alternator, starter
all can be checked free at most auto parts stores,,,
2) starters can test ok but be bad,so get checked at autozone
3 ) check abs/brake and check fluid level
4 ) also check neutral safety switch's...on shifter and on brake pedal.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

SOURCE: I replaced the blown driverside headlight bulb

Try this. right in front of the alternator is a black box. take the cover off and look at it inside and undeneath there is a diagram of fuses and relays. look down at the fuse block you just uncovered anfd you will see the fuses. there should be one labeled on the cover for "Head L/F and Head R/F".

check those and see if that works.

NO power to the radio or clock


Did you actually check the radio plug for power, or does the display just not illuminate? I ask because this radio has a little bulb inside that burns out that illuminates the clock, and radio station. You can confirm this by trying to use the radio normally, and trying to 'seek' a station. If you can get it to tune in, it is definitely the bulb. Another way is to shine a nice bright flashlight into the clock face. You should be able to see the stations and clock, that at least will tell you that the radio is working. - Hope this helps =)

There are two 15amp fuses marked 4 and 8 that provide power to the light control module. If those fuses are good, and those circuits have power, the problem may be with the control module. The module provides power to the dash lights.
You may need a shop to trace the circuits and find the problem.

The clock works, correct? It is just not illuminating when your headlights are turned on? If this is the case then it is most likely that you have 2 burned out bulbs. The forester clock bulb is Sylvania bulb part #2723

Hope that helps! I have a bunch of clock related info on my website www.autoclockrepair.com. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

I can help you out with the left turn signal not blinking. Maybe it's a flasher or the light bulbs aren't getting current through the wiring.

I can't help you out with the interior gauge lights not turning on when you turn the headlamps on. It may have to do with the headlamp switch, though.

I've never seen the lights on the radio not dim when the headlamp switch is turned on. hm.

Good luck on this repair.

My clock light has gone out on my Grand Am - can we replace a fuse to get it working again and if so where is it located?


the clock light doesn't have a separate fuse, it is on the same fuse as all the lights in the dash, what has happened is that the tiny bulb in it has burned out, this bulb is soldered to the circuit board inside the clock, you will need to remove the clock and replace that bulb, radio shack sells the bulb.

2002 Jeep Liberty radio/clock display not working


If the radio works, but the display doesn't the bulb is burned out, I think removing the radio is necessary to replace it. I would see it as an excellent opportunity to upgrade sound systems and go with an aftermarket unit that will interface with your Ipod.

1995 Ford Taurus digital dash clock out


If your clock is backlit from a bulb, you can replace the bulb. If it is LCD lit, you must replace the clock. I've seen several clock and instrument displays in the 90's fords that go dim, or go black. Usually, they must be replaced or factory repaired.
