The lights are out of my factory radio

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

If there is no power in your car more than likely it has to do with your car battery being dead try and jump it. Good luck!

My 2001 yukon xl dash is reading, "check oil pressure when i crank it up. the oil level is at zero. do you have any idea what it is? before this hapeened the check engine oil level light flashed on...

well so if i understand right you have no oil in the vehicle? or have you checked the oiil dipstick, GM is known to burn oil so if you go alot more than three thousand miles between oil changes than that will cause the oil to burn off and cause the lights to come on, or you might have a leaky filter or drain plug and its loosing oil, so first pull he diptick check level and if you need oil just go get an oil change and they snould let you know of any leaks there may be

My 2003 Yukon XL Instrument Cluster has stopped working completely. Does GM cover this problem?

{: ) Do you mean cover under warranty or something? I don't think so. They can only help you deal with the problem if you decide to bring for repairs.

Can you put a newer radio in a 2001 yukon

Hi, my research indicates you can install a single din aftermarket head unit in the 2001 Yukon.
A couple of good websites to use are crutchfield and modifiedlife.
Crutchfields will identify exactly what adapters are needed, and modified life has the factory wire colors.
You will need an adapter to fill the space between the aftermarket stereo and the hole left by removing the factory head unit.
You will also need an antenna plug adapter.
I recommend you buy the wire harness pigtail to simplify the installation--this may or may not include the antenna plug adapter.
If you have onstar, you will need an additional adapter.
If you have steering wheel controls, you will need another adapter to keep those.
Keep the above things in mind when selecting a new aftermarket stereo, as you will need one that is compatible with steering wheel controls and onstar, if you have either of those and want them to continue to work with the new stereo.
Crutchfield has an link called "outfit my car" that takes you through a "Turbo tax" style questionaire and tells you what will work and what you will need. here is the link:

Assuming you have a base Yukon, here are your factory wire colors from

Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: Yellow
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black

Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A

I have a 2001 yukon and am wanting to change out the radio. Is the radio going to need any extra parts due to anti theft security?

Depending on what radio you install you will need an installation kit so you can plug in your OEM wiring and not have to splice and decipher factory wiring. Check with Best Buy or Crutchfields' (online)

Take the radio to your GM dealer and go to the service department. They will be able to figure out the unlock code in less then 5 minutes and, at least when I had them do it, didn't charge me a dime.

Good Luck

you have to take it to GM dealer to get that problems fix due to your computer effects security and ignition. did you by chance disconnect the battery for any reason or removed the radio? your computer need to be reset and your key fob don't even reconized its own remote.

I have a 2005 gmc yukon xl and am not get fire to the amplifier...have new radio and amp...have reset the radio codes but still no do I get fire to my amp?

Is it all factory equipment? If so you need to go to your local gm dealer and have them program your radios serial number to your vin with a tesh 2 programmer. Sorry but if it is factory stuff that is the only way to get it to work.
