Check your car battery. Try to turn off your headlights and aircon then look at your stereo if its bright, if it has bright light try to turn on your aircon and headlights then if the light of your stereo turns dim the problem is now on your car battery. The battery cannot supply all the electricity needs of your car.
If it is an orange wire with white trace, this wire is used for dimming the brightness when you turn the lights on.....normally connected to the illumation wire...sometimes to the cig lighter illumination or dah illumation wiring........
look and see if the yellow illumination wire behind the stereo is connected to the power wire, you may not have its lights wired up, this could cause you not to be able to see a display, to test this for sure shine a bright flash light into the face while its playing, if you see some display, this is the problem
If you disconnect the stereo, does the temp. display go back to working properly? Did you connect the stereo Illumination wire correctly? Are all the other stereo wires connected correctly? Double check what the wires in the aftermarket harness are supposed to be and don't just go by color.
Some vehicles have an illumination signal that tells the stereo when your headlights are turned on so that it can dim the display (to help keep from being blinded by overly bright stereo displays at night). If you don't have that signal, don't connect the stereo wire to anything.
