Maybe not. If everything is working OK there are some possibilites. A fuse for the radio lighting or the bulb/LED is blown. You can try to locate a wiring diagram from the manufactures website. Or get a "Sam's Photofacts" booklet.

Is the stereo still working even without the disply. If so, you need to check the wiring to make sure all the connections are made. There is a seperate conector for the illumination.

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 have a problem with the code of the stereo honda element 2004


    Usually the stereo code is needed for accessing any kind of function of the stereo.
    If the radio code is not located in the owners manual there are other places that might have the code displayed.

    Check the fuse panel inside cover or the sides of the glove box door.
    (This is where I put the radios code sticker for when I am performing new vehicle deliveries)

    A honda dealership would be the only option to make use of this problem.

    What the Honda dealership does is find the stereo's serial number then the advisor is able to locate the radio's 4 - 6 digit code.

    On some models the serial number is found by holding the #1 and #6 radio preset simultaneously, then hitting the power button.

    At this point the radio's display should show the serial number and the radio code can be retrieved by the advisor.

    STEREO CODE IS NEEDED TO REBOOT THE STEREO SYSTEM


    your best bet is that there maybe a 5 digit number in your glove compartment ..if there isn't there maybe a longer digit number in that case you need to call a dealership and ask them for a radio code and just follow what they tell you to do

    2000 mitsubishi galant, changed battery , radio is saying off, i dont know the code, now what


    Hi! I had this same problem on my 2000 mitsubishi galant. To get the code, you have to first get the serial number which is labeled on the stereo. I had to pull the whole stereo out of its setting to find the label. Then if you call the dealer with the serial number (and I think you need a variety of other info proving the car isn't stolen) they will give you the code and tell you how to type it into the radio.

    The hardest part for me was getting the stereo out of its setting. On my car there is fake wood plastic all around the stereo and air/heating dials. You have to pull the wood casing off (if you use a screw driver around the edges, it should just pop off). Then unscrew the stereo from the rest of the car and pull it out (i felt like i was stealing the stereo from my own car haha). The screw was all the way in the back, closer to the hood of the car than to the driver seat.

    Hope this helps. The code should just be a four digit number...for me this was a lot of work for a small problem...but worth it compared to driving around in silence.

    Need car stereo code for honda accord 1995


    stereo codes for Honda

    Method 1 (all applicable models except '03-07 Accords with the navigation system)
    1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
    2. Turn on the audio unit, and make sure you see stereo COdE in the display. If you don't see this message, pull the backup fuse for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
    3. Turn off the audio unit.
    4. Press and hold the 1 and 6 preset buttons, then turn on the audio unit. The display toggles between two screens. The first screen displays a U and the first four digits of the serial number (for example, U2200). The second screen displays an L and the last four digits of the serial number (for example, L0055). Ignore the U and L, and write down all eight digits.

    Method 2 ('03-07 Accords with the navigation system)
    1. Turn the ignition switch to ACC (I).
    2. Turn on the audio unit, and make sure you see COdE in the upper display. If you don't see this message, pull the backup fuse for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
    3. Turn off the audio unit.
    4. Press and hold the top halves of the SEEK/SKIP and CH/DISC bars, and then press and release the PWR/VOL knob. This display toggles between two screens. The first screen displays a U and the first four digits of the serial number (for example, U2200). The second screen displays an L and the last four digits of the serial number (for example, L0055). Ignore the U and L, and write down all eight digits.
    5. Call Honda Dealer for Radio Code.
    6. Use the TUNE knob to enter the first four digits of the anti-theft code into the audio unit. (Ignore the last digit; it's not used.) When you turn the TUNE knob, COdE disappears, and a single digit is displayed. Turn the knob left or right to select each of the anti-theft code digits. When you press the TUNE knob, the system beeps and accepts each digit as it spells out CODE on the display.

    AC display won't dim after stereo installation


    If you disconnect the stereo, does the temp. display go back to working properly? Did you connect the stereo Illumination wire correctly? Are all the other stereo wires connected correctly? Double check what the wires in the aftermarket harness are supposed to be and don't just go by color.
