Question about 1995 Dodge Intrepid
I resently installed a aftermarket CD(not the first one Ive done) into a chrysler intrepid. Eversince I did this the Light that illuminates the dash has stopped working everything else still works when you first turn it on it lights up but fads quikly is this the result of something I did hooking up the CD player I have never had this happen and the guy who owns the car is a little upset also I was woundering were I could find a wire diagram for this model so I can check my work
Thankyou for any help
Could you pls postback with the make and model of the aftermarket CD?
Based on your description, initially a couple of ideas to consider:
1. There are some head/CD units that has a wire attached to the dashboard illumination which of course would run by a fuse. If the new aftermarket CD does not use one, was the wire attached to something, covered with tape or left with the possibility of shorting itself to the body/chassis ground?
2. lights up but fades quickly is indicative of not constant power but uses stored charge of a capacitor, Have you checked the always on B+12 connection (in some units the yellow wire) with a DVM and verified that it is consistently +12VDC?
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
