Hello, this is Brent at 1 Factory Radio. The best solution for display lights going out in Ford Explorers is to get a new DC to DC Converter, because this part was usually responsible for display malfunctions due to its own inherent deisgn flaws. We offer our own brand of DC to DC Converter for Ford Explorers and many other Ford vehicles from the late 90's to the early 2000's. Pioneer no longer makes these parts, but ours are 40% less expensive than the ones that Pioneer was selling. These are high-quality, newly manufactured pieces which have been specifically engineered to correct the design flaws which caused the originals to malfunction prematurely, and they come with a full-color instruction manual for easy installation. You can purchase them from our eBay site, http://stores.ebay.com/1factoryradio, and also on the 1 Factory Radio website, www.1factoryradio.com.

Probably lost its memory power, check radio fuses, it should have 2 power sources. If ok then may be faulty radio.

No, JDeloach,
There doesn't have/need to be a FUSE every-where...!!

Quite the contrary... just IMPROPER handling of
all (teeny-weeny) SEMI-CONDUCTORS is typically
enough to utterly DESTROY them...!!
(sophisticated electronics).

Look up ESD (electro-static discharge)
((a tiny spark you might not even feel)).

Shorting out leads in modern cars can cause AIR-BAGS to EXPLODE in your face...!!

Be happy... You face is still intact... and
the vehicle is not on fire.

German engineers... (in particular) have a CERTAIN logic
to their design...

AMERICANS have introduced and GREATLY STRESSED the need for lots of FUSES.

Better luck next time "SPARKY".

I need to install a direct fm box in my 04 ford f250. this item is needed to complete xm radio installation and eliminate static. Can i access the radio from below or do i have to remove the radio. If so...


the radio is removed with a special tool set, it can be bought at any good parts store like NAPA, it is made by KD tools, the two U shaped tools go into the holes on each side of the radio face plate and release the spring clips that hold the radio in, a 30 sencond job.

2003 sunfire radio display does not work, but radio does.Help?


Light is burned out in radio. You can replace the front face of the radio from a good one with a good light and put on your radio and the radio will light up and work in your car. If you replace the whole radio you will need to have the radio unlocked.
Remove your radio. Locate a used radio at a wrecker. Put your car is accessory key postion and plug in the radio at the wreckers. if it lights up it is good. Remove the bottom panel on both radios and unplug the 2 wiring plugs that come from the front face. they are side by side. Unclip the front face and plug back into your radio. Replug it in and snap the bottom back on your radio. Plug back in and it will now light up your radio.
The whole procedure should not take more than 15 minutes and all you need is a 7mm socket and a flat screw driver.

If you are more daring you can also buy a cheap am/ fm only radio with a light and replace th circuit board of the back of that one to the circuit board on your radio and use your own front face again. It willl light up and all your items will function regardless of whether the doner board had cd or not. Time on this is 3o minutes and you need a small wrench to remove the screws in the board.

Good luck. I replace about 10 on these each week so the wreckers in my locations no longer have many low end radios avalialbe either. This is the lowest cost way on fixing this issue.
