Question about 2003 Pontiac Vibe

1 Answer

I get nothing from the radio. No display, no sound, If you push the RCL button the time displays for about 10 seconds and goes back off. The CD player will eject a CD and accept it but that's it. Any ideas? Where can I get a "economical replacement"

It sounds like the mother board is bad and you are prob better off replacing the hole radio..
One ditch effort would be to disconnectt the neg battery terminal and wait about 5 minuets then put it back on.. That will reset anything and with any luck - the radio might clear its issue..

Good luck ;)

I would like to know which buttons to push on my 2008 Chevy cobalts clock to set the time

Press the button until the hour begins flashing on the display. Press the button a second time and the minute begins flashing on the display.
While either the hour or the minute numbers are flashing, turn the knob, located on the upper right side of the radio, clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the time.

I push in the wrong radio code 3x on my 2001 audi now its stuck on safe mode and wont let me in to push in the right code


First of all you should exit from safe mode. Then turn ON the radio and let it turned ON for at least one hour, in order to exit from safe mode.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer, or from a VW dealer!


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of a 2001 Audi Concert radio programming is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.

The radio is now ready for use!

First of all be sure that your four digit security radio code is correct. If you had attempted three times without success to exit from safe mode by inserting the code, radio is blocked in safe mode for a while. Now turn ON the radio (in safe mode), and let it turned ON for one hour, then follow this procedure.
The sequence of VW radio gamma programming is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.

For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.

Change the time 2005 saturn ion


1. Press and hold RCL button
2. While holding RCL button push left side of AUTO/TONE rocker button until correct hour appears
3. While holding RCL button push right side of AUTO/TONE rocker button until correct minute appears
4. Release RCL button when finished

Or if you have an "RDS" (Radio Data System) you can find a radio station which transmits some kind of text (ie the call letters or song name) you can hold the 'RCL' (timeset) button and push the RDS button. It will attempt to read the time from the data stream and set the clock for you. Otherwise it will say something like 'No RDS time set'. you need to tune a station with RDS - it won't scan them for you.

Radio wont work


wfdyer,

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
