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.

2008 GMC Acadia radio won't turn on


The radio and BCM needs read for codes. No reason for the radio not to work after a FOB program. Just a guess, but if the battery power was to low, radio is locked out.

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.

The radio/clock dash light on my 2004 matrix are out! ...solution?


The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses plus the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.

I also have clock removal instructions at my website www.autoclockrepair.com
