Mechanical Face Plate Assembly

Well, I have a friend who doesn't live by you motto, sadly. My husband was given a radio that a friend of ours destroyed. He bent and broke all the mechanical parts on the face plate assembly area. Turns out the only problem was the ribbon that my husband fixed. now we need to order the other parts but we do not know the names of them. We need everthing from the face plate back. Do you happen to know anything about this? And also where can I find a Service Manual for this? Thanks for your time, Walli

Wath is wrong when the sound of our radio is working, but the display is black?


Usually bad solder joints inside the radio. Not hard to find. But you do have to remove the radio and take the case off. There are about 25 joints at the front of the radio that attach the face. I just resolder all them. Most times the LED face comes back on. The ones that don't, is the chip on the face. I don't replace chips. But then again, I only do this for friends and relatives. Most radios aren't worth fixing.

Radio works but face plate shows nothing


You have two possibilities. You can try cleaning the contacts on the back of the radio and on the subpanel with qtips and rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser. If that doesn't work, you may have bad solder connections on some surface mount resistors inside of the radio. If you are good at soldering they should be on the right front of the radio, you will have to remove the cd mechanism to get to them.

I have an Alpine ZL-3 and we can't smell the ozone any more. Our air doesn't smell fresh any more. My husband has been cleaning the ozone plate with warm water. Does this have anything to do...


OK- The plate needs brushing with a bristle brush to get the oxidized crystals and grime off it. If you don't, it will not create ozone. I never use water any more, it rusts the plate eventually. Rust also stops the process. I use rubbing alcohol. Cheap and safer than ammonia...MUCH safer. Blow dry. The only bulb is the radio wave ionization indicator bulb, attached to the round antenna-looking thing. You should wipe the ionizers off with alcohol every 6 months too. If they are gunked up they don't work nearly as well. Look up the Living Air Classic manual.

The lights on the front of my nightwatch is not working but the rest is the meter and channels light up and the dimmer works just the backlighting wont whats the problem thanks


  • That Night Watch face plate is AC ran by a converter inside the radio. The LEDS are part of the face plate and sold as one unit. The face plate goes out often on these radios. In short the face plate needs replaced if you want it to light up. The radio's performance will not be effected by this. Cobra can actually switch that out fairly cheap. Cheaper than buying a face plate used on the net.

How do i get the dash off to pull the old radio out


I'm not totally sure about the La Sabre, but there should be trim screws that hold the Dash face plate in place. There are three on the top portion of the face plate, and I think three on the bottom . The face plate extends from Light switch on left to radio on right. You may have to tilt the steering wheel column down to remove the face plate from around the steering wheel. From what I remember, the only thing that needs to be unplugged from the face plate is the plug for the rear defroster. Also, there are clips that hold the face plate in place. They just push in and out. Once the face plate is off, you can get to the radio mounting screws.

1998 beetle radio buttons


The face plate buttons actually activate small buttons on a printed circuit board behind the face plate. When I removed the radio and then the face plate many small pieces of plastic fell from behind the face plate. These small plastic pieces align the face plate button to the printed circuit board buttons. My Beeetle is almost 10 1/2 years old so I imagine the plastic is just becoming brittle with age. I could not set the radio to FM, so I removed the face plate button and now slide a toothpick in the slot to toggle between FM1 & FM2. Not he best solution, but probably the most inexpensive one. I also made my on tool to remove the radio from a diagram found at: http://www.alientech.net/nbinfo/stereo.html

No antenna detected


More than likely, it is the antenna. Sad to say, but the Sirius antennas go bad very easily. Make sure there is no undue pressure on the antenna wire itself, as that can aide to premature failure. Bad antennas are the number one reason for the unit to read 'antenna not detected.' I have seen plenty of the antennas go bad and they were not misused one bit. If you contact Sirius, they're usually pretty good at understanding the misfortune of losing your paid service. Sometimes they'll ship you out a new antenna.
