The lights may work because the might be tied in with your parking lights, allowing them to illuminate at night for visibility. First thing's first, did you check the fuses in the fuse panel? Check them all since cars have circuits mixed around and the radio is no exception. OK since all the fuses are good, you'll have to pull out the radio and unplug it from the harness. You will have to use a multimeter which you can get anywhere (wal-mart, etc). Set the meter to DC, put the probe on a bare piece of metal in the radio cavity and use the red probe on the harness. Scout the web for a diagram of your car's harness to know what to meter. Now since everything there is ok, you will have to dig a hole and throw the radio into it because the radio is dead. A new one can be bought for as little as $100. You will need a trim kit to fit it into the weird hole from the the radio and a wiring harness as well to make it match up to your car's harness. Both can be bought on e-bay for cheap. Actually the radio can too.

What are the best settings for bass , treble and mid in order to get the best sound

There are no hard and fast rules for setting Bass, Midrange and Treble on your radio. Depending on the type of music you are listening to with your radio, it can / will determine your sound settings. To attempt to set the sound settings on your radio, select the sound settings and set all of them to 0. ( Bass,mid,treble ), then start playing your usual music. With the music playing move the treble setting in single incriments 1,2,3,4 and so. A comfortable setting is usually a 5 out of a total number of 6. Then move over to Midrange and repeat process. A 4-5 out of 6 is usually comfortable. Finally comes the Bass. You do not want to overpower your speakers with too much bass as this will damage them over time. Repeat the usual process and listen carfully for any baffling or distortion as you move through the numbers. A comfortable bass setting is usually 2-4 out of 6. Again I must stress that there is no hard and fast rule for settings. It boils down to the type of music, and what your ears tells you sounds good. What sounds good to me might not be enough for you, or vice versa. I hope this helps! Cheers!

Bass hits when i play the radio but not when i play a cd

Dont assume because you have set the bass and treble options for your radio that they will work for your cd, press the source button until you come to cd and then set your bass and treble again, hope this works

Also had no radio but flashing bass/treble indicator lights. As suggested by another post, I disconnected neg. batt. cable and pulled the "interior cluster" fuses, re-set them and then reconnected batt. cable. This fixed the radio.

Sony radio cdxgt210

Use the main control knob. The one that turns your volume up and down. If you press it in it should go through bass, treble, fade, balance, and sub. Then use that same knob to adjust it by turning it left or right.

Stored settings and auto eject

Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...
