Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring

3 Answers

My CD player and clock work fine, but when I try to go to FM radio, the radio lights dim to off and the clock goes off. When I turn the radio/CD off, the clock comes back on reset to 12:00. If I leave the radio off or use only the CD, everything seems to work fine. When this first started, it seemed worse on hot days (I'm in Southern Arizona, so it gets very hot.)

The radio comes out from the front. Remove the trim bezel first, (use a small flat tip screwdriver and pop off the plastic around the stereo) then you will have access to the phillips screws that hold the radio in place. Once those are removed, you can pull the radio forward to get to the back of your unit and remove the rest of the plugged in electrical connections

Something in the radio unit has shorted. When you change functions on the head unit (from radio to CD or vice versa), current is shifted to different circuitry inside. My bet is one of the op-amp chips has failed and is putting the radio into an overcurrent state, effectively shutting it down. With the number of people that put aftermarket radios in their cars, you can probably find one very inexpensively on eBay or Craigslist. Or, you could get a nicer aftermarket unit to replace it. A factory stereo is typically inferior to an aftermarket unit, so paying to repair it is likely not worth it - replacing it with another factory deck is cheap. Replacing it with an aftermarket unit is better.

there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

you may have a faulty connection either on the radio plug or the fuse. check them. sometimes the fuse can look good but it has snapped and any movement will break the circuit.

2000 Silverado FM radio (only) no sound


You can try resetting the radio by removing power from it for a few minutes, reconnecting it and trying again. However, it sounds like an internal electronics problem that will either require a repair or replacement.

My cd player keeps turning on and off. and dash clock light keeps dimming in and out and wont keep the time.


You have a loose wire. Will require removing the radio to get to the wire that keeps constant power to the radio ,,,this allows the clock to keep time. An interuption in this power source equal reseting the clock. Good luck

I can't change the time of the clock on the Hyundai 50645P CD player/AM FM clock. There is no information in the Sante Fe manual. Any advice?


Try this, put the key in the ignition and let it be on the first turn right marked "ACC" or you can turn off the stereo and you will notice that only the Digital Clock screen will show. Turn the Volume/Audio/Sel knob and press on the "DISP" button simultaneously for about 4 seconds then release the "DISP" button. The digital clock will start blinking, and then use the Tune/Seek arrows pointing up and down to change the time. If the hour digit is blinking change the hour and after you have changed it press "DISP" then the minute digit will start to blink change it using the arrows, when you are done press "DISP" again or leave the clock for between 4 to 8 seconds the clock will start working normally.


I hope this works for you.


Good luck!

Radio works but the clock/channel does not light up.


It sounds like the radio is defective, but check the fuses that power it 1st, if they are all ok then you can get a used working radio on Ebay, have bought them there myself with no problems, cost was reasonable.
