1963 t-bird radio needs rebuilt/upgraded. who can do this

Instead of replacing it with a new radio and face plate i heard that i can send it out and have the insides swapped out so i can reuse the original face plate.

Yes, this is true, I haven't seen anything on this in a while. The company I remember was in California, They did it with T-Birds, Mustangs, Vettes etc. I will see what I can find. It may take a few days to find, but I will try. Hope they're still in business!

The face plate was stolen on the radio, can I get one of a broken set?


the face plate is what has your anti theft code stored in it so a replacement unit from another set probably will not fix the problem unless you can reset the code
talk with a radio repair shop before you spend cash to make sure that the fix is possible

The lights on the front of my nightwatch is not working but the rest is the meter and channels light up and the dimmer works just the backlighting wont whats the problem thanks


  • That Night Watch face plate is AC ran by a converter inside the radio. The LEDS are part of the face plate and sold as one unit. The face plate goes out often on these radios. In short the face plate needs replaced if you want it to light up. The radio's performance will not be effected by this. Cobra can actually switch that out fairly cheap. Cheaper than buying a face plate used on the net.

Radio plays upon startup but withing minutes message says searching for signal then antenna not found. replace antenna?


No, it's the Sirius Tuner. If it's 2 or so years old, there's a bad ground on the antenna port pc board. If your tuner is roughly 6"x6"x1" it's the one. The new tuners will not have this issue and are considerably better built. (DEI) is the manufacturer of the new unit. If you don't mind rebuilt, you can save 40 or 50 on a repaired tuner. The repaired tuners are very reliable since they upgraded the board with one that's durable. Hope this helps

How do i get the dash off to pull the old radio out


I'm not totally sure about the La Sabre, but there should be trim screws that hold the Dash face plate in place. There are three on the top portion of the face plate, and I think three on the bottom . The face plate extends from Light switch on left to radio on right. You may have to tilt the steering wheel column down to remove the face plate from around the steering wheel. From what I remember, the only thing that needs to be unplugged from the face plate is the plug for the rear defroster. Also, there are clips that hold the face plate in place. They just push in and out. Once the face plate is off, you can get to the radio mounting screws.

Brocken Audiophase CA-813 stereo plate


if your talking about the face of the radio then you'll have to take it to a car audio place and get them to send it away, if you want a new one then you'll have to spend afew more bucks , a new one ( I heard) is about $100

How do you replace the meter light in a cobra 25?


You need to open the unit up ( remove the case/cover). Then remove the 4 screws holding the face plate on. Remove all the knobs ( they slip off) . remove any screws holding the meter on ( there may be none depending on which model you have ) . slide the meter out of the face plate and replace the meter with a new meter. Note: The meter light needs to be reistalled in the new meter. It simply slides out the side of the old meter and slide back in the new meter. Replace all the screws, and the jobs completed.

Good Luck and a good weekend to you.
