2003 Tahoe - electrical problem. The compass and temperature displays on the rear view mirror quit working. Also, the Driver Info Center and radio are no longer illuminated at night (both totally dark). They both work fine during daylight. I've checked all the fuses and can't find a bad one. Rocky

Hey there. I am trying to wire in my new car radio- stripped the wires- matched up orange to orange, red to red- etc... there are three wires on my new radio "missing" that my wire harness has. I just taped over them and tried it anyway. It doesn't work. The display comes over for a split second, says "no disk" and then goes dark. Any ideas? No instructions. Honda Odyssey '03. THank you!!!

NO readout on radio display ,no clock no CD, no fm, But all systems work ????? 1998 Explorer. Bill [email protected] I have a 1992 Ford F-150 and a 1999 Ford Explorer. I pulled the F-150 radio to install a noise on the 12 volt input to the radio. When I plugged the radio up I found that I lost the clock display even though everything else was working. The Explorer had the same problem since I got it and, no, I didn't mess with it ---- yet. Sounds like a common problem with Ford radios. By

I bought a used 2003 Jetta for my daughter with only 12,000 miles on it. The Monsoon radio suddenly stopped working. The display shows FM 88.1 (the radio staion) but there is no sound and the radio is frozen, meaning none of the channel, AM, FM bass, treble etc buttons work. If you raise the sound, you see the bar increasing the sound, but again nothing comes out. If you put in a cd, the display shows the cd is playing, but the cd control buttons are completely ineffective. I disconnected the ba

1994 MERCURY VILLAGER (RADIO ON BUT NO SOUND) Displays 'tape in' display when powered on. can switch to radio, selection stations etc. all with no sound from any speakers. The system has rear seat controls. They also work but no sound. Curious thing is there is a radio seting to press keys 1 and 3 to turn off the speakers and allow the rear seat controls. When this is in effect there is a headset figure added to the display. This is on initially and can be reset, but reappears by itself. Again n

The radio controls in my 2006 Chevy Equinox do not light up. The radio works and the display showing the station works, and the controls work, I just can't see it after dark. The control that adjusts the a/c level does not light up. The hot/cold button does, and so does the knob for controlling where the air comes out. I don't know why??

My wife had a DVD player and a Sirius radio installed by an audio installer and now there is no power to the dashboard center console. That includes the heater, fan, air conditioner, defrosters, etc. ... even the button backlit lights are out. The dashboard gauges work and those lights work and the radio works as well. I checked all of the fuses and they are all good. Any ideas where I should look to fix this? I'd like to have some sort of idea before I go back to the installer. Thanks.

Intermittant brightness on trip computer display (LED panel). Sometimes the display works fine, other times the display is bright in the center and very dark around the edges. Today when I first turned the car on, there was no display. When I turned the car off and then back on, the display powered up with no problem. The computer is retaining the information so it appears to be just the display. Lighting on overall instrument display is fine.

After work yesterday when I started my truck a ?Check Gauges? message displayed on my odometer readout. It was there for probably 2 seconds and went off. I then turned the truck off and started it again, and it did not appear. This morning when I left for work the message readout appeared again. I shut the truck off and started it again and it did not appear. There are no other lights (check engine, service engine, etc?) on. I read the manual and it say it could be one (1) of three (3) th

Radio stuck My 1995 Camry Coupe's radio is stuck. All buttons (to change stations, station preset, Am/FM, tape, CD) except one (see below) does not will work. I can still make the anntena go up by pushing the ''on'' button but that's it. When I shut off the car, the radio display is still there (radio station, volume level, etc.). I'm afraid this will drain my battery overtime and I really, really want to be able to change stations. Thanks for your help

My radio goes out from time to time. all the lights on the small knobs (bass,treble, etc.) blink and display reads EEEE instead of the time or a radio station. The radio does not work when this happens and it does not matter if it is turned on or off, the lights and 4 E's stay on. The trouble is that it runs my battery down to nothing and I have to get it jumped or use a charger. How can I get the lights off without having to buy a radio to replace it right now.

My 2003 A6 2.5TDi Avant Multitronic seems to have developed gremlims in the driver information system. It started with the AIRBAG warning light going on/off. Then the multitronic display would show a negative display and this would come and go(car drives fine with all gears working). Now on startup instead of the display showing "When Stationary Apply Footbrake While Selecting Gear" goes straight to OK and shows normal display of Radio station etc. Any help would be very appreciated.

I have a 2002 300M - recently the light display on the climate control panel (above the radio) went blank - no lights. After a few days the lights started working again.

The light switch is turned on to the proper position and the clock light dims and brightens with adjustment of the wheel by the l

1994 Eldorado ETC, it has no dash lights to light the dash, info center buttons, a/c buttons, radio buttons and shifter. I check wiring diagrams in Chilton?s on-line but was unable to find a fuse for these bulbs (i don't have an owner's manual.) Other lights work in the dash like check engine, seat belt, etc. but you can't see the dash at night with the lights on. Any assistance would be great. Thanks in advance.

I have a 2003 Jag S type with a navigational system. The other day the screen went blank and the A/C controls and the nav, screen, audio, etc. buttons quit working. My radio and CD players still work, but without a screen I have little control over the system. The lower single line display below the screen flashes between 50 51 and C. I have read other articles on line that indicate a similar problem and the correction is to replace the Nav system DVD. What is your opinion?
