I have a 2003 Deville and both of my license plate bulbs were out. Chances are its not a fuse and you will probably NOT find ghe replacement at a autoparts store. The book used that offers the 'replacement numbers' states a 'PC195' which no one carried because the replacement not only requires you to replace the actual bulb, but the setting as well (actual bulb socket-which is nothing more then a blue plastic piece where the bulb actually seats). Its a horrible design. To replace the bulb you need to gently remove the entire light assembly from each side above the plate. You may have to actually take your license plate off to do this. Once you remove the entire assemble there will be a retainer clip with a harness running into the assembly, just unclip the 2 wire harness - repeat for the other side. CHANCES ARE WHEN YOU GO TO REMOVE THE BULB YOU'LL TAKE IT OUT IN PIECES as it will break up in your hand. The part you just removed you will see a blue dime size fitting that is required for ghe bulb to work - when you get your replacement (most likely from a Cadillac Or GM dealer) you will get the new bulb seating in the connector. The AC DELCO part number is 25085970 and you'll pay about $11 each. Be careful when removing the old bulb and handling as there are 2 metal pieces laid into the assembly and if they pop out you'll be looking for more parts Any questions send me a email: carjockey71@gmail, dont forget DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB and use a little of the common bulb grease. The number on the actual bulb assembly is PC168 as read off the needed 'socket'. Installation is the reverse of removal. Best of luck, Paul.
Check the number of time it blinks. that is the error code and compare it with the problem listed in the owners manual. see www.fixurtvs.com. The code 32 means the color wheeel is getting stuck. You can try to clean it and put it back or look for a replacement. Repairs should cost you 350 to 450 at shop and 150-250 at home subject to the availability of parts. Cleaning it just a stop gap measure and not a lasting solution. dont worry if the wheel opens up into two with black dust inside. Just clean it put a drop of light machine oil like sewing machine and put it back. there will be hum but the wheel works for months and maybe a year. it varies from tv to tv and quality of your workmanship.
There is a bulb under the shifter. It is probably burned out.
You need to purchase a number 194 bulb at an auto parts store. Next, you need to remove the entire center console to gain access to the socket that holds the bulb. This is fairly easy. After the console is removed, look under the shifter assembly to locate the socket.
A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance.
Well, I fixed it myself. I used a wire hanger, measured and cut a portion off, bent it in a shape that fit in the housing and around the light bulb. Turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself. TV is working fine and dandy now! =)
I searched for over a month for this custmer and had no luck at all finaly the ony option was to get the light engine from Sharps board exchange for $600.00 that is beter than the 1300.00 that Andrews wanted for it. Then found that RCA used the same wheel in one of there DLP's and sure enough this part number had been discontinued and the entire set has crush and exchange order on it as well.
Encompass parts distribution has more than 50. I order off the internet. Part number and brand name is viv 3250701500 vivitek. With shipping about $119.00. I think the television is worth repairing. Look for people who are dumping the sets.Mark
