I don't know the full solution; however, I do know there is a very small removable light behind the display. You must remove the face plate to access the light, the twist it out with a common/flat screwdriver. Be careful not to brake any retaining clips along the way. And you need to take the dash cover off to get at the radio, a bit of a nuisance.

Unfortunately, GM (of course) does not sell a replacement part. You might try an auto-wrecker, to find a similar inoperable radio but hopefully with a working light. Good luck.

    I did just find a replacement bulb on eBay, searching under "pontiac radio light" and found at least one option, seller = gmradios, for $15.50

    Were you able to replace using the new bulb? If so, what was involved?

NO power to the radio or clock


Did you actually check the radio plug for power, or does the display just not illuminate? I ask because this radio has a little bulb inside that burns out that illuminates the clock, and radio station. You can confirm this by trying to use the radio normally, and trying to 'seek' a station. If you can get it to tune in, it is definitely the bulb. Another way is to shine a nice bright flashlight into the clock face. You should be able to see the stations and clock, that at least will tell you that the radio is working. - Hope this helps =)

BOSE RADIO CLOCK/STATION DISPLAY DARK


This problem is caused by two tiny burnt out bulbs behind the LCD display thay are soldered to the circuit board behind the radio LCD display and can be replaced, this requires the radio be removed and the housing taken off and the front display un-clipped, you will need a low temperature solder pencil and thin strand solder the bulbs are available from Radio Shack, the part number is 272-1092, this is a 2 pack of miniature 12 Volt 60Ma bulbs. This radio display bulb is used in may car models, this bulb also repairs climate control displays as well as other low light displays like switches

Internal workings of the radio, if the radio is operating fine then your bulbs/lighting inside the radio is bad as the lights come on with power to the radio. Normally they don't replace this and just swap the radio which is expensive. If the vehicle is still under warranty I would take it back and even if its not its an 08 go and raise hell to the dealer and force them to buy you a new radio!!

My clock light has gone out on my Grand Am - can we replace a fuse to get it working again and if so where is it located?


the clock light doesn't have a separate fuse, it is on the same fuse as all the lights in the dash, what has happened is that the tiny bulb in it has burned out, this bulb is soldered to the circuit board inside the clock, you will need to remove the clock and replace that bulb, radio shack sells the bulb.
