Unfortanatly it requires radio removal and dismantiling to replace the back lights... difficult job to do if you dont have the correct tools and parts...may want to look into replacing the radio...

    I don't have an issue pulling the radio out of the dash. Do you know what kind of bulb and what kind of specialty tools I need?

    what you need to do is dismantle the radio...find the bulb thats burned out and unsolder it from the pc board.....bring it to radio shack and find an equivelent bulb....should be 12v so the size will be the most important may be a good idea to test the voltage where the old bulb was installed with a multimeter to make sure it is 12 volts.then resolder the bulb to the board and you should be good to go.

2005 Pontiac Vibe When started there is a

I had a similar problem. It'd do a whir/thump routine. There's a motor that opens a door - I think it opens to allow cabin air to recirculate. It would get to the point where it should stop but seemed to "thump" over the stop point. I opened the door and unplugged the motor. Guess, I really didn't fix it. Do like my sister and turn up the radio. Good luck.

Where is the fuse box on a 2006 vibe for the radio/cigarette light located. Looked under the hood. That one does not do it. Looked behind the storage to the left of the steering wheel, nothing there....

try looking for the fuse marked acc or accsseories if not then look in back of glove box for a small door if one may be fuse or air filter not sure on the vibe but do know that it is really a toyota matrixalso look inside drivers door at side of dash and see if panel door is located there i hope this helps in some way good luck

2006 vibe radio display light on left side won't light up

I also own a 2004 Pontiac Vibe and our company delivery vehicle is a 2006 Vibe, both have this problem. I had a friend who repairs circuit boards re-solder new bulbs. You need to know what you are doing, the heat from the gun can burn out the new bulbs.
