Radio lights are out


what lights, the dial back lights, is it stock>?
the radios have 3 power sources
1 for radio and amp.
2: dial lamps (dim,) if the other cars dim-able park lamps work then
the radio lamps are bad, or not connected (1 wire)
3: memory. power.

my guess is the rad back lamps are dead.
so turn on the parking lights (Head ligths 1st click)
does dashlight up.? no, turn the dimmmer up.
do they light now? yes, and radio no?
if no radio lamp now, the lamp is bad or wired wrong or the fuse blew
that the dial feed wires to.
if not stock, any thing is possible, (infinity)

Brakes short lights


You need to get you alternator tested, it sounds like the current output is too low.

When i turn headlights on...radio lights go out..they come on when i turn dimmer switch..but then dome lights wont go off...tried it on all different positions...2008 patriot


It sounds to me like you may have a defective dimming switch. Are the instrument cluster lights working as they should? Do they dim/brighten with the dimmer? If the instrument cluster is working OK, then it could be an internal problem in the radio unit itself. Your panel lights are computer controlled. The processor in the instrument panel controls them. It uses a digital signal to "tell" the radio to either dim or brighten its lights. If the radio is failing to do so, the radio is the most likely cause since the lights work on "full power" which is also commanded through the same data lines. (this eliminates the signal from the cluster and the connection through the data lines.)

My KD-LH810 turns on and plays the cd that is in it but the faceplate does not come on and it continues to play the cd - I cant turn it on or off and none of the other buttons work on the faceplate work so...


wipe the connection where the face connects at i had the same problem and it works fine after cleaning the connection and i will guess the power light itself is still lights up and no other button lights or the screen itself if that is correct then u most likely just have moisture in the connections try wiping it with a dry soft cloth

No back light on display


I know that most Clarions have an "illumination" wire usually orange and or orange/white. If the unit only has one, then most likely it is for a "dimmer circuit" and not atraight illumination. Let me know. If by putting power on tat orange wire does not do it, then you have a bad "bulb" in the faceplate.

Light out on toyota Sienna radio


FIXED MINE! My 2000 Sienna XLE had the same problem with the lights not working. They would flicker on once in a while. I took off the face plate, cleaned the radio with a "can of air" to remove any dust, put electrical grease on the face plate contacts and the plugs on the back of the radio. Reassembled and the lights worked better, but dim and flickered off a bit. Knocked on it a few times on the side to get those contacts to work better and it is now working. My guess is the contacts on the faceplate were not making good contact. If I had to do it again, I would pull on and off the face plate a few times after installing the electrical grease to help loosen up any corrosion for a better connection. That would probably eliminate the need to beat on the side of the radio after reassembling. This fixed mine. Hope it works for you.

Kenwood KDC-519 Faceplate Problem


Detach the faceplate and look at the electrical contacts on the back of it for damage/dirt - you can spray it with electrical contact cleaner. Do the same to the contacts on the head unit - it sounds to me like one or more of them are a bit loose or otherwise not working properly.

No response from the KDC-519


I once had the same problem and took it in to have it looked at! The guy simply pushed in the small black button to the left of the ATT button and it reset!

Hope that helps!
