Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a 20000 GMC truck with a radio/CD player. One or more bulbs which illuminate the face on the radio are burned out. Would like to replace the bulbs and wonder if this is something I can do myself. I have experience soddering. Where can the bulbs be purchased and how much are they? Mike

Take a look at this website.
This will give you a basic idea on what you are looking for.
Looks like it doesn't require any soldering.
Bulbs can be bought at Radio Shack.

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 =)

Keh pioneer will not illuminate


I am assuming you are talking about the tape deck (head unit) and not the changer. You more than likely have burned out bulbs in the face. Unless you are good at desoldering and soldering, I would suggest you have them replaced professionally.

I have a honda odyssey 2001 the light of the panel are not workinkg all the rest of the lights are working i check the fuse and are ok only i did was change the radio and install a new one but did not...


I'm guessing you're talking about the dash light aound the radio. The dash lights around the radio share the same fuse with all the other lights that come on when you turn the parking light on. If the other light are working then your fuses are fine. What i think might have happen was when you took the dash cover off, the bulbs behind it might had burn out. You might want to try new bulbs.

good luck

The radkio and cd works but light does not work anymore is it a fuse


there is a tiny light bulb inside the radio that illuminates the radio face plate, pull the radio out (u need a special tool set, it is made by KD tolls) remove the top cover of the radio and u will find a tiny twist in bulb socket, twist that out and replace the push in bulb.

Clock light burned out


You will need to pull the clock, the bulb is on the back, any parts store will carry it, it is a mini peanut bulb.
