How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

After Market Radio Installation


Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

Cd player chevy aftermarket


Find a test light and probe your wires you are trying to hook into. You should have one that stays hot, or has power all of the time, and one that only has power when the key is in the on or acc position. Hook the new radio memory power to the one that is hot all of the time and the main power to the one that only has power when the key is on.

1997 pontiac grand prix gtp factory amp


Apparently it was available with and without. If you have a pair of sub speakers, then you have the amplifier. The factory radio was equipped with inputs for an optional multi-disc CD player so connecting an aftermarket player should be easy. You may have to add a 10A CD CHG fuse to the fuse block, ground the unit to a BLK/WHT wire, and connect the right output wire to connector 3 pin 10, the left output wire to pin 11, and the audio common lead to pin 12.

2000 Chevy Suburban radio not working


Sounds like an internal problem with the radio. There are places that repair factor radios, but for the money, you are better off buying an aftermarket radio. There is a company called Scoche (spelling) that sells a good line of wiring adapters and mounts for aftermarket radios so you can install them yourself. You can get a good radio (some with the new HD radio) and CD player for under $150. The mount kits run about $15 and the wiring harness runs about $10....all abailable at Best Buy or Wal Mart

I want to install a aftermarket cd player in my 2000 pontiac grand prix but i cant figure out how to remove the dash to get to the wires and remove the factory radio. i already have all the parts to...


Under the steering wheel by your feet, remove the 2 screws that hold the panel up. Carefully remove that, then just take your hands and start popping the dash off, but be CAREFUL!

My aftermarket radio will not turn on


I assume you didn't install the radio yourself then? Some installers put a inline fuse in. This would be located behind the radio. Some radios even have a fuse built into themselves, also on back side of radio. If those two solutions don't help ya, check the other fuses. Maybe the wiring for the radio was hooked into a different system other then the radio.
