How to replace a burned out LED for the radio display, Ford/Merc

The radio station and clock display LED on my OEM Mercury radio is burned out. The vehicle is a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer. I understand that this is a chronic problem for this vintage Ford radio. The dealer wants $125 for the replacement. I am a mechanical engineer and have taken several electrical engineering courses as well as having been raised in our family repair shop. Can I make the repair, is there a STEP-BY-STEP available or should I seek out a local electronics repair guy?

NO power to the radio or clock


Did you actually check the radio plug for power, or does the display just not illuminate? I ask because this radio has a little bulb inside that burns out that illuminates the clock, and radio station. You can confirm this by trying to use the radio normally, and trying to 'seek' a station. If you can get it to tune in, it is definitely the bulb. Another way is to shine a nice bright flashlight into the clock face. You should be able to see the stations and clock, that at least will tell you that the radio is working. - Hope this helps =)

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

How do i replace burned out lightbulb in my in my cambridge soundworks cd - 740 clock radio ?


I believe the problem is either a faulty light sensor the unit has to dim the display when the lights dim since it was designed for bedroom use with alrms and snooze button. or it is simply a failure in the circuit that drives the LCDs. Mine has been dim for a long time but I can still see just enough to adjust the sound settings. I tune and set stations by sound. so the display has not been an issue since we do not use it for a clock or alarm. I doubt there is a fix for the dim display.

1999 Cougar radio display works sometimes


the radio display is lighted from the back by a miniature bulb, this is the problem, the filament is almost burned out or the bulb is loose in the socket, to replace this bulb u must remove the radio (requires special radio removal tool kit, about $6.00) and then the top cover off the radio, the bulb socket twists into the back of the display, you can buy the bulb at any parts store for about $2.00

No radio display


u must pull the radio out and remove the top cover of the radio, under that u will find a tiny bulb socket just behind the display inside the radio, remove that twist in bulb socket and replace the miniature bulb, any parts store will have it.

to set the 5 main presets:
with radio on, use the manual tuner to find station you want on a preset. push and release mem/clock adj button (mem will flash on display), push preset number and while holding it in push the mem/clock adj button again (mem on display will go away). station is now preset to that number.

to set the 5 additional presets:

to set the digital clock display:
