This could be true. The radio fuse may also be the fuse to dash lights also. Check the fuses. One fuse will cover 3 or more difetent things. Like My Toyota pickup with automatic trans, when wipers quit working because the fuse blew, I had no overdrive either.

I've asked this earlier but not sure if it went in I have a 2005 Suzuki Verona the radio works but no lights on the radio what would cause this issue


the dash has a dimmer, this is dash park lights
and runs all radio back lights.
so if the dial is low, its dark
if the dash cluster glows good the dimmer is ok
and the wire to the radio called, dial

on after market radios its the orange wire. not 12v, its dead.

suzuki uses different colors.
turn on parks, with a voltmeter measure 12vdc at DIAL wire.
at radio.
0v bad, 12v good, if 12v then radio lamps are Blown out.

Dash light doesn't work


Check fuses for dash light / instrument display. If the fuse is good, you may want to check if stereo share an illumination wire with dash. You may have broken the connection behind stereo.

After Market Radio Installation


Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

Radio is on, but no sound. 2003 Olds Silhouette.


I had avery similar problem with my radio. At first I would lose audio but it would eventually come back. Then I lost it for good. I replace the radio and that work for a bit and then replaced the speakers and they worked for a bit. Eventually no audio. I took the radio and speakers back to the tech who installed them and he found a short in the speaker wiring to the passenger speakers. He installed a jumper around the short and the new radio and speakers worked fine. Then I had him put in the original raidio and speakers and have had audio ever since.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.

Wiring diagram


First, goto a store and buy a snap in wire harness and a mounting kit. There are wire diagrams in the packaging. Wire your wire harness into the radios wire harness (everything is color coded). Follow the intructions to install the mounting kit. It should tell you what screws to remove from your dash and so forth. Just remeber were everything goes. Next, after you remove the old radio, snap in you wire harness to the cars wire harness. Then, test the radio to see if it powers up and all speakers are working. Lastly, put you radio in your dash, and put everything back togeather. The number one rule in installation is take your time. If you rush, you will brake something.
