The radio display is lighted from the back by a miniature bulb, this is the problem, the filament is almost burned out or the bulb is loose in the socket, to replace this bulb u must remove the radio (requires special radio removal tool kit, about $6.00) and then the top cover off the radio, the bulb socket twists into the back of the display, you can buy the bulb at any parts store for about $2.00

I have a 1999 mercury cougar. the radio display does not work but the radio works. also the cigarrette lighter does not work. is this fuse related? if so, what fuses do i replace? i do not have the cars...


this may sound stupid. but you know the little pad that has about 4 buttons on it. place a penny under it so it makes contact. Had a friend do that to mine and it works about 89% of the time. Its wierd I know!

I need the mercedes benz 1999 clk 430 radio code


AR82.60-P-7502-01A Coding Radio
(MODEL all with CODE (750) Radio Becker Europa 2000 with CODE (751) Radio Becker Grand Prix 2000 with RDS)

  1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it is not operational when re-connected. After switching on the ignition and the radio, the readout CODE appears in the display.
  2. The code number for the radio is advised to you on the enclosed CODE CARD.
  3. To enter the first digit of the code number, you have to continue pressing station button 1 until the correct digit appears in the display. Adopt the same procedure for the second, third and fourth digits.
  4. Once you have entered the correct code number with the station buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and confirmed the entry with the SEEK button (press down), the readout CODE disappears. The radio can now be operated.
  5. If you enter a wrong code three times, you must wait 15 minutes before making a new entry. In addition, if 9 incorrect entries are made, the radio will then not operate for 24 hours. During this time the radio and the ignition (terminal 15) must remain switched on.

(MODEL all with CODE (353) Audio 30 APS with CODE (510a) Radio MB Exquisit with traffic news decoder, with RDS (Becker) with CODE (512a) Radio MB Special with traffic news decoder, with RDS.)

  1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it cannot be operated by simply reconnecting. After switching on the ignition and the radio the word "CODE" appears in the display on the radio.
  2. The code number for the radio is given on the enclosed CODE CARD.
  3. Enter the code number with the station button, e.g. number 1, station button 1. After entering the first number the word "CODE" disappears and the number entered appears followed by 4 dashes. The next character to be entered flashes. After entering all five numbers, the first character starts flashing again. In this state the code number can be written over as frequently as desired. A correction can be made only by entering the complete code number again.
  4. Confirm code number: Press TUNE, AUTO/SEEK or SC button. The radio automatically switches on and indicates the radio station or frequency stored with station button 1.
  5. If an incorrect code number is entered and confirmed, the word "CODE" appears again on the display. If an incorrect code is entered three times the word "WAIT" appears on the display and the radio locks up for approx. 10 min. If the code is entered incorrectly three times again the radio locks up again for 10 min. Three more incorrect entries (a total of 9 incorrect attempts) increase the lock-up time to 60 min. Another three incorrect entries lock up the radio for another 60 min. The waiting time runs only when the radio is switched on.

91 toyota camry- while driving (in the rain) radio suddenly stopped working, although station display remained lit and numbers were displayed. I smelled smoke, of an electrical nature. Drove home, parked...


You have a failed output section inside the radio. If you remove the radio, and take it apart, you will see some burnt capacitors at the very back side of the PC board. This is, unfortunatly, a very common problem with those cars. You are going to have to get another radio, the expense for the manufacturer to fix is is more expense than a replacement. Sorry, but I have seen this situation too many times.

1990 Cougar No display dashboard or radio


I am not sure if you mean the dash lights or just the radio display
cause there was some models with small bulbs behind the dash and you had to replace the bulbs and some of them you had to replace the cluster and if you have to replace it and you go to a salvage yard look at the date just inside the drivers door and find one as close to that date as you can and it should work and as for the radio there is a bulb behind the radio

Original stereo in audi 1991 90


i have the original book it says anytime the battery is disconnected it will do the lock up and read SAF on the display when this happens you cant use it again untill you unlock it... to unlock it turn the radio on the word safe will be displayed first press the am/fm button and then press the scan button and hold them down simultaneously until "1000" appears in the frequuency display release the buttons DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE CONTINUE HOLDINT THE BUTTONS DOWN OR PRESS THEM ONCE AGAIN THIS WILL CAUSE THE RADIO TO TAKE THE NUMBER "1000" AS THE CODE NUMBER. using the first four radio station buttons enter the code number found on your radio card (the codes you have) use button 1 to set the first digit of the code button 2 to set the second digit etc. the first digit of a four digit code must be "1" if your code number has three digits the first digit on the display must be set blank. Once the code is shown on the display press and hold the am/fm button and scan button simultaneously until the work safe appears in the frequency display release the buttons a radio station frequency will automatically be displayed ... MAKE SURE YOU PUT IN THE RIGHT NUMBER OR YOU WILL LOCK UP THE RADIO AGAIN AFTER 2 TRYS AND WILL HAVE TO WAIT AN HOUR BEFORE YOU CAN RETRY IT. IF YOU LOOSE THE CARD WITH THE NUMBER SEE YOUR AUDI DEALER
