Bose radio light bulb replacement in 2003 Silverado

You have to open up the radio chassis, remove the front circuit panel faceplate (move out of the way)and remove the very tiny 12 light bulbs which are hard wired to the small control panel circuit board behind the radio display. VERY important, use a low temperature soldering pencil and a heat sink in each of the bulbs legs, DO NOT overheat the circuit boards are you will need to replace the radio. You can buy the bulbs from Radio Shack, the part number is 7219 which is a 12 volt 60ma wired terminal base miniature bulb.

2002 Jeep grand cherokee the radio is working but will not light up, can the light be change ancd where is it in the radio.

I have an AM/FM/Tape/CD player of about that vintage on the shelf that was in my 95 Dakota(RIP-sniffle).It has about 10 tiny bulbs in it that would go out 1 at a time(hey I only paid 20 bucks for the radio at Carlisle!)The dealer was no help for these bulbs(you'll have to pull the radio out and remove the faceplate)I had to take the bulbs out of the little base,and replace them with a TINY 12v bulb from Radio Shack.They did make a major shape change-I think for the 2003 model year-which annoyed the HELL out of me,since up till then a 2002 radio woulf fit in a 1976 model(with some rewiring)The only thing that I dont get is that the whole thing doesnt light up (I was assuming you meant the illumination for nighttime)

I just want to know if dash lights and radio lights can be changed?

I have never seen one you couldn't change. You will probably have to take the instrument cluster and the radio out. Little bulbs plug in the back of the inst cluster. The radio might have a bulb down through the top or you might have to take the face off the radio to find it. I have changed both before.
