If you're talking about the stock radio itself having no lights, check the plugs in the back and make sure its in properly. To identify the wires check this chart as well Radio wiring colors

Used stock cd players are pretty cheap. Why dont you put out a Classified ad as "Want to buy Stock Cd player" I have seen them go for like 15.00

i was sent this but i cant find a power supply board for the radio display any have picture of this board


The problem is reported on many web sites. The power supply board for the display gets to warm and melts some of the solder connections. You will need to remove the radio from the dash. Remove the display panel from the radio and the top cover panel. When facing the front of the radio, there is a small board on the left side of the radio. It is held in place by two bendable tabs, one at the front of the radio and the other in the circle in the metal housing (both are in an area of white paint). You will also need to remove the screw in the rear heat synch.

At this point, the board will be lift up easily. With a magnifing glass find any cracked or bad solder joint and touch it up. Be careful, the SMD are not glued to the board so they can slip when the solder is hot.

Good luck.

I took my radio/cassette out of my '99 and did not find the board mentioned here. I saw a heat sink on the left side of the unit but it is not removable. Am I missing something? When I put the radio back in the dash, the display lit up momentarily, then faded away. Your thoughts?
