I changed the stereo in a 2000 GrandAm SE and the tail lights and dash lights quit working. How do I fix the problem?

Did you chop up wires to install the new radio ? Is it a aftermarket radio ? You need to have some one check your work !

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.

I switched out my radio in my 2000 pontiac montana...hooked up new stereo and it will not work. It work fine in my other car. I tried two radios in the montana and it will not work. everything is hooked up...

Hello... sorry to hear you are having a problem. The theftlock system does not pertain to anything aftermarket that you do. The theftlock only locks down the factory radio if it is removed, and only if it was activated before it was removed. There was a red led light on the radio. With the vehicle turned off, if the light on the radio flashed, then it was activated. If you hook the factory radio back up then you will have to enter the code to unlock it. Since you used a wire harness adapter, check the red wire and make sure you have 12v current on that line. You didnt state if the radio powers up with no sound or if it doesnt power up at all. If it powers up with no sound, then check to make sure that the blue/white wire is hooked to the blue wire on the adapter harness. Let me know if you are having no sound or no power and I can help you further with this problem.
