Sadly no. The leds to light the knobs are surfaced soldered to the radio board. Unless you know how to surface mount solder and can find exact replacement leds there isnt anything you could personally do to fix the unit

How do I get the code for my 1999 audi a6 bose sterio?

Did you try calling an audi dealership? Usually they can get the code for you if you can provide them with either the vin number of the car or the serial number of the radio.

Radio works just have no digital read out on 1999 explorer. Is it fused related?

Hello! Yes It could be fuse related. You have lost power on the Blue/Red lead, which is illumination to the radio.

If you have a multimeter you can look for +12volts on this wire with the key on. If it is not present; Check fuse #27 15amp inside drivers side fuse box.

In case you ever need the entire wiring; Here it is...

Green/Yellow memory +12volts with key off

Yellow/Black ignition +12volts with key on

Red Ground

Blue/Red +12volts with key on


FR + White
FR - Green/Orange
FL + Orange/Green
FL - Light Blue/White
RR + Orange/Red
RR - Black/White
RL + Pink/Green
RL - Pink/Blue

The RSX BOSE radio stopped working.

If you disconnect the bose radio, it loses it's programing.. Needs to be taken to a GM dealer and vin coded. as for the volume knob, it's digital.. if it's not working it wont be a connection issue, it's likely a flaw on the board. The best place to get that fixed is United radio in NY. 1-800-448-0944
