The oe radiop is not worth repairing. It would cost $200-300... or yu can go to walmart and buy a brand new cd player for around $100.,.,. wiring adapter $20.. so for $120ish you have a modern stwereo that plays cds, and sounds 1000% better than that stock piece of krapola.

Stereo Backlighting won't light up

I have had the same problem. It is a short within the radio itself. There really is no fixing it except for buying a new one.
