Its going to be an Led light bulb and these can be pick up cheaply and in different colours too. Behind the display is either one or one either side.

    Thanks very much but can you tell me how to get to the bulb. Does the display glass come off and then i will see the buld? Many thanks for the info.

    To get to the bulb you have to remove the front cover after you have taken off the top cover by its screws. The front cover is normally held on by clips so unclip all these , and turn it over to check the front feet , there might be screws here , undo them and then pull the front panel away, you will see a green circuit board. Remove that and with the display facing you it will either be on the back of the display if you pull it gently towards you or one to the side.

Display is very dim

Backlight bulb is burnt out. The display, on its own, will not generate enough light to read so there is a backlight bulb that brightens the display. Need to disassemble and see what type bulb is in there. Radio Shack should have a replacement if you bring your old one it.

Can you replace the led for the faceplate Jenson phase linear ump401? Thank you in advance

The display is not an LED (Light Emitting Diode) it is a LCD (Liquid Crystal Display), behind the display is a tiny light or light bulbs that back light the display, yes they can be replaced, you can buy the bulbs at Radio Shack if the number can be crossed over, but most likely they are a Radio Shack # 7219 Micro Lamp

I have a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville some of the display lights and the display for stations not working can these lights be replaced or is there an new circuit board available for replacement?

I have a 2005 Bonneville and lost my display completely. I replaced the bulbs. Not too easy.
I understand that there are places that will replace the bulbs and it costs $200-$300 with shipping. You can try buying the bulbs for $20-$50 and replace them yourself (how are you with solder? Try this website for repair or parts:

I did do a write-up with pictures to replace the bulbs at: You may have to register for free, then search for "Radio display light bulb" .

Here is a picture of the 3 bad bulbs behind the display, after digging deep into the radio:

1999 Cougar radio display works sometimes

the radio display is lighted from the back by a miniature bulb, this is the problem, the filament is almost burned out or the bulb is loose in the socket, to replace this bulb u must remove the radio (requires special radio removal tool kit, about $6.00) and then the top cover off the radio, the bulb socket twists into the back of the display, you can buy the bulb at any parts store for about $2.00

AC display panel lights

You will need to replace the whole in-dash A/C control unit. Changing the small bulb won't rectify your problem, as the display is LCD.

1990 Cougar No display dashboard or radio

I am not sure if you mean the dash lights or just the radio display
cause there was some models with small bulbs behind the dash and you had to replace the bulbs and some of them you had to replace the cluster and if you have to replace it and you go to a salvage yard look at the date just inside the drivers door and find one as close to that date as you can and it should work and as for the radio there is a bulb behind the radio
