Radio plays, sounds bad, display doesn't work

Your speakers are just fine!! Original radios and some newr radios do have expiration dates. You have to look at the year of the car and if the radio is original . The display not showing is a great sign to know thats its gonna go out sooner or later. It's cheaper to get another than to figure how how much it cost to fix.

I have a 1986 oldsmobile cutlass. Sometimes the radio works and sometimes it won't come on, thinking it may be a grounding problem because the didgets on the radio is sometimes garbled. How do you remove...

Look on for a video of some pulling a radio on a mid 80s olds/buck/chevy. there are thousands of car repair videos there. that way you see someone pull one out and can do it yourself. you can buy a replacement on eBay or at a junkyard/recycler. parts for cars more than 10 years old are hard to find, poke around at flea markets and garage sales, always old radios someone pulled for an upgrade laying around. most likely any mid 80s GM car radio will fit.

I need to know where the plug wires go.from spark plug to distibuter cap on a 1986 4.1 coupe deville(cad.)

FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: GM (Cadillac) 250 (4.1L) V8 GM (Cadillac) 273 (4.5L) V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 2: GM (Oldsmobile) 307 (5.0L) V8 GM (Oldsmobile) 350 (5.7L) V8 w/EFI Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 3: GM (Buick) 252 (4.1L) V6 Engine firing order: 1-6-5-4-3-2 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872010.gif Fig. 4: GM (Cadillac) 368, 425, 472, 500 V8 Engine firing order: 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872011.gif Fig. 5: GM (Cadillac) 429 V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872012.gif prev.gif next.gif

I have a 1999 Cadillac Escalade and have recently noticed that there is no longer illumination behind the first two vertical rows of radio preset buttons. I thought it was strange to not have lost all the...

This is a very common problem with all G.M. radios of late. Unfortuneately the back lights are not replacable, They used to be. Your best bet is to send it in to a radio shop for an estimate. The dealership will send it to delcotronics and cost a small fortune. If its really an issue, I recommend you get an aftermarket one installed.

i down load to my phone and then set up the bluetooth (blackberry)and it also gives me route maps.....but then we are in front of you tech wise....but behind japan...clever what......

It appears the radio "on/off" switch in my 2003 Cadillac DeVille is shot. One day it was working and the next day it stopped working. The time light is on and I saw the radio station indicatorl briefly...

I'm sure only the switch can be replaced, I suggest you look in your local Yellow Pages under Automobile stereos, and look for a repair shop that specializes in repairing OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) GM radios. They will be able to assist you in repairing your radio to "new" working condition.
