I have researched this through multiple forums and "DIY" sites, apparently the problem is excessive heat building up in the radio and loosening solder terminals on the power board for the radio display. After trying the recommended re-soldering fix a couple of times without success I believe that the best way to go is to purchase a repair kit (HWM0043 ) and swap out the power supply. Try SOT Electronics, Inc. 4090 Pike Lane Concord, CA 94520 800-442-4491 ext. 562

Stereo Backlighting won't light up

I have had the same problem. It is a short within the radio itself. There really is no fixing it except for buying a new one.

Radio wont work


go buy a new radio. You can usually get free installation. If you are a do it yourselfer. Then go to crutchfields web site. They are great, they give you the adaptor plates and wire harness to go from what ever radio you get to the car, with no splicing (cutting and reconnecting of wires) They will tell you what radios will not work and tell you what ones will.

Sorry to say it but you have power to the radio, and there are really 3 things a radio needs to work. power, speakers, and a signal. you can check the antena to make sure its not broken or disconnected. but most of the times its the radio
