07 Chevy Cobalt: Radio back-lighting never turns off.


Newer cars come with a switches that delays their shut down of certain lights on the car. Sometime they allow you to get inside your home before the turn off but sometimes the switches malfunction and you light never turns off. I have had this happen on my 2006 vehicle several times in the past. Maybe these kind of switches one day will get a little better. Until then, you can ignore it or pay the big bucks and have a technitian repair it..

RADIO RADO NOT WORKING


You should have 2 positive power supplies to your radio...one always on, the other only on when ignition is in ON or ACC position. Hope this helps. There are sometimes inline fuses tucked up under dash.

New starter but car wont start


funny...you have just told me what is wrong with it!!!
check power in, power out at the ignition switch...likely it has failed. switch is on the top of the steering column under the dash and is sometimes easier to reach if you disconnect the column from the dash and permit the sterering wheel to rest on the seat.

Hi there
If it was the front dash mounted lighter socket you used, the correct fuse is the 15A CIG & RADIO fuse (at the end of the second row) of the dash fusebox. If replacing the fuse hasn't fixed it, you may need to look closer at the wiring from the fusebox as it's likely the wiring has gone open circuit.
Take the fuse out and check for voltage at the terminals in the fusebox with the ingition key turned to the ACC position. One terminal or the other will have 12V on it. If no voltage on either you have a fusebox to ignition key wiring problem. Check for voltage on the ACC pin of the ignition switch, with the key turned to the ACC position. That's pin 3, a blue wire, of the 8 pin ignition switch connector. If still no volatge the switch is likely faulty. the voltage into the switch must be there as it also feeds the ECU and IGN systems, so the car wouldn't run at all if it wasn't.

There is another possibility. If you have an alarm system, immobilizer or turbo timer (assuming the GTT model) these devices could be interrupting the power lines and be the culprit devices.

I assume it wasn't the rear hatch area lighter socket you used, because the fuse for that doesn't power the radio or clock. The fuse for that socket is the 15A ACCESSORY fuse in the passenger side footwell fuse panel.
