#5 of 10 Part of radio display out
Oct 13, 2008 (12:23 pm)
Hi. This is my first post to this forum. I just bought a used 2001 Bonneville and half of the display on the radio is out. I believe the bulbs behind the display may be out. I want to try replacing the lights/LEDs but if I disconnect the radio, and then reconnect it later, will that lock the radio? I do not have any locking codes, so I'm afraid to disconnect the radio.
Also is there a way to find the locking code on my radio just in case I need it later?

My display went out in my 99' Bonneville, and I fixed it myself. It took a bit of searching for the right bulb, but with some help from my local dealer, we were able to order one. Shipping cost more than the bulb, but the total was only about $10. Just make sure you don't have the radio "locked" before you take it out and apart.

How do you remove a radio-cd player without ruining the plastic around it?

Various bulbs can be made to work from Radio Shack's assortment. I've seen descriptions of how people have done these.

The wood-like plastic trim strips typically pop out. Gentle test around different spots. It helps if you find a description with pictures that someone puts up that shows exactly how for your type car. And yours is in a console rather than the dash like I'm used to on H-bodies.

I have popped the radio in and out so many times it's easy. You don't need your code if you put your radio back in. If you change the radio you will need to code it . . . I paid $49 at the bonneville dealer and they did it( ripoff).
