The lights are out of my factory radio

I have a factory GM radio in a 2001 Yukon. a couple of lights were burned out in the past, now none of the lights behind the controls work. The blue florecant screen is fine. just what should show through white. Is this a possable repair I can do or must it be sent in, and if so where could I have this done

Best bet is having a after market radio put in it will be least expensive that way. or just take the radio to the dealer and they should be able to sell you a remanufactured radio i hope this helps you

I have a dual XDMA7650. I installed it in the car and I finally got it to work, however my turn signals and hazards have both stopped working. After I installed it, I drove about a half a mile and smelled...

It sounds like you blew a fuse or the circuit relay. When installing aftermarket decks they should be wired independently and on there own fuse. Disconnect power to the deck and replace the circuit breaker or fuse to the flashers

What would make the sound turn on and off repeatedly when I raise the volume past about 17.

well, if you have aftermarket speakers with no amp, the radio may not have the power the speakers need and it clips at that volume to protect for damage. if you have factory speakers, I don't know what it would do that, the speakers would blow before the radio would clip if they were factory because the radio would have more than enough power to push them.

I disconnected my battery on my impala now my radio is locked any one know the code

The only way to get the code unless written in the owners manual is to car GM and get a factory code specific to the serial number of car. Best bet is to check owners manual first for a written number it could be anywhere check front a back blank pages and check radio section. If not there then call GM they may charge you a fee. Good Luck

My car radio locked after disconnecting the battery. entered wrong codes 3 times- now off. How do I get the ''off'' reset? Where can I get the reset code? Infinity 4 cd and cassett player in 2001...

Don't worry - you'll get 3 more chances in a couple days or so. If that is the factory radio and you know where the car was purchased, you can call the dealership and give them whatever info they ask for (your name, vehicle VIN, etc.) They should be able to look up the reset code in their computer system and give it to you. If it is the factory radio but you don't know what dealership sold it, you must remove the radio and look at the serial number. They may require you to bring the car in to the service department to do this and charge you a hundred bucks. If that's the case, think about upgrading.

No sound from speakers

did you check to make sure your vehicle didnt come with a factory amp, if it has one is it turning on? or did you remember to disconnect the negative battery cable while installing your radio, i know thats a dumb question, once i was installing a pioneer a barely crossed a couple wires and fried the radio, the radio itself worked fine and all the features etc, but it never did play sound again. i always disconnect the power now!!

Unlocking stereo for 2001 Oldsmobile Alero

Try this.
Here's another variation that worked for me just two days ago... you DO NOT NEED to take it to the dealer and you do NOT need to disconnect the battery, this can all be done with a couple clicks on your radio and call into that phone number.

This was posted previously on another post. ....
01. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

02. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds

03. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. Don’t take forever, fifteen seconds max before the next step.

04. Press the AM/FM button

05. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.

06. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are from STEP 05

07. Call 1 800 537 5140

08. Press 1 then #. You’ll hear Invalid Code, try again

09. Press 139010 then #. You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by *

10. Enter the number from STEP 6 then *

11. Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice

12. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

13. Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the code from STEP 11

14. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to SEC Hope this works, Good luck. Leadispenser

Your radio is now un-locked and usable

You HAVE to take it to a GM dealership, as each car has it's own code based on the VIN. Usually costs around $45-60.
