SOURCE: Were is the thermostat located in a Pontiac Sunfire 2000?

Your thermostat is located under the thermostat housing, which is what the upper radiator hose clamps to on the top of your engine. Basically, you need to start with a cold engine, drain your radiator, then unclamp the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently tap on it to remove it. clean up the mounting surfaces on both the engine and the housing, and install a new thermostat, and new gasket. tighten to proper torque, reconnect the radiator hose, then refill up the radiator and cooling system.

SOURCE: Installing an aftermarket stereo in 1996 explorer...sound issues.

You may have a factory amplifier in the rear of the explorer in the right cargo panel. You need to supply power to it by connecting the amp power on (Blue/White I think) in the dash to a power source (such as red on your stereo harness) so it comes on with the key. If you do have the amplifier, that's why you have no sound.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?

It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

I put an after market stereo in my 2000 Pontiac sunfire. There is power to the stereo it turns on and says its playing music but no sound is coming out.

If the unit is powered on then your problem is in the output. Check your aftermarket harness to the speakers. If you did not buy a harness then something is wired incorrectly. A good way to check which speaker is which is buy using a AA battery. Simply touch 2 leads to the positive and negative of the battery and when you have a correct connection the speaker will make a hissing sound.

Trying to install an after market stereo on my 2000 town and country i get no sound

Did the AM stereo come with a wiring harness or adapter to match up with your T&C OEM stereo? If so, look for loose or poorly mated connectors. If not, double-check that the wire splices you installed are secure. Are you using the T&C's original speakers, or did you install aftermarket speakers, as well?

In most vehicles the "chime" is located in the dash around where your 4 way flaser is. It could simply be the door switch also which is a little button that depresses when you close the door to open the circuit shutting the dome light and chime off. They are easy to change and inexpensive. Hope that helps.

Installing after market stereo


You will need to go buy a wiring harness adapter from your local Walmart (usually cheapest there) or Local Electronics place (ie Best Buy). The wire harness that goes out from the radio goes into the Adapter and the adapter plugs into the car harnesses. Also these Adapters come with the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. They typically run 10 - 15 bucks depending on where you get them. Thanks for using FixYa!
