If all other dash lights work, perhaps these are fed by a separate wire, which is loose at some point. It may require some disassembly of under dash panels to be able to trace this wire down. However if you mean the clock inside the radio, one wire feeds both the light and clock circuit. If you have an aftermarket radio installed, they usually have two power wires, one which is only hot when the ignition switch is on. Often installers use a connector which crimps the wires and these are not the best way to do this. If you can find the faulty connection, clean the wires and solder them together if possible.

Power on, clock works, CD works, NO SOUND from the radio


Check the speaker wires maybe they have worked loose. And speakers themselves as they may blown. Do you have an amp if so check its fuse. Also check for inoperative interior lights, lighter, and horn. One of these circuits will power the radio's memory circuit. Some radio models will appear to work normally but have no sound if the memory fuse is blown. The clue is the clock will reset to 12:00 each time you turn on the ignition switch.

Ingterior lights, clock and radio memory won't work on 1998 isuzu rodeo when key is not on


The radio receives power from the 15A AUDIO FUSE in the dash fuse box. The radio memory receives power from the 10A DOME LIGHT FUSE in the same box. The problems you note suggest the radio may have been misconnected at some point or there has been a fuse failure or there is a broken connection.

My radio, car alarm, interior lights do not work on my 2006 subaru tribeca


The solution for the interior lights temp gauge etc. not working is the fuse under the hood as mentioned above.
As for the clock resetting, your battery is probably about to go. The tribeca turns off power to the vehicle if voltage drops below a certain level to save enough power to start back up. This causes the clock to lose memory.

internal lights in the radio, call your local stereo shop & asked them if they can send your radio out for repair. It may cost less just to let them replace the radio then a repair.

Radio lights off on 1998 ford explorer


1 -Check your head light switch and turn signal switch by taping them lightly - Common problem with fords to short signal light switch/head lights and they also have radio lights/clock lights control(lights dim for Radio/clock when you turn the lights on)

If you have checked all the fuses and switchs, possible that the light bulbs have burned out. Check with a local radio repair shop and they can remove the radio and install new bulbs.
