Pull the radio and check the harness on the heater controls, probably just knocked the plug loose.

What's all need to install a aftermarket radio in a 05 Dodge caravan? Been awhile since I did it yrs before but the wife's van radio is going out CD player and radio itself


Radio, aftermarket radio kit(used to mount the radio), and an aftermarket wire plug. This plugs into the radio and your existing harness. Otherwise you have to cut and splice wires. I use a volt /ohm meter to cut and splice.

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.

My windows and lock and windshield wipers are not working


New vehicles now have a CPU that controls everything. Removing a component like the radio will result in a confusing side effect of another.
If you put an after market radio in it's place it might not reconnect all the components needed for the CPU. You need to ask if there is a installation kit that goes with your specific make, model of vehicle when installing a aftermarket radio.

My radio has all the bells and whistles. It is a large square box that an aftermarket radio will not fill. It seems to have no reception at all. when it gets warm it starts to recive but very weakly. ...


A used one will work, you can get the code at the dealer. As for aftermarket radios: standard aftermarket radio size is referred to as 1 din. Your stock stereo is 1.5 din. To install an aftermarket stereo in Amy car requires an install kit, in your case the kit will make up for the size difference by just filling the gap with black plastic. But there are aftermarket stereos that are 1.5 din. They will still require an install kit, but will completely fill the hole in your dash. If you're planning on getting a $99 stereo at a parts store don't bother and just find a stock one. But spend $150 on an aftermarket stereo and you'll be very happy. Good luck.

My factory radio went out in my car...so i had a new one put it in. After the guy installed the radio we noticed that my park lights and dash lights werent working. We checked the fuses and they were all...


I really hope that this guy bought a wiring kit to put in the aftermarket radio, because this could be simple. Your stock radio runs the dash and parking lights threw it's display and that needs to be looped with the new radio. On the aftermarket, there is a orange wire that does this. Since the stock wiring is different with every make and model of auto out there, you need to buy the wiring kit that plugs into the car's harness and matches in color to the harness of the new radio. Putting together the orange wires will give you back your lights. If this person cut the orginal plugs off of the car and wired it direct to the car, you may want to see if the plugs can be put back on and the wiring kit installed or you going to be going through a nightmare of figuring out what wire is what on the car side. Those wiring kits that plug into the car and wire up to the radio are cheap and can be bought at Wal Mart for about 20 to 25 dollars. Good luck

2000 Chevy Suburban radio not working


Sounds like an internal problem with the radio. There are places that repair factor radios, but for the money, you are better off buying an aftermarket radio. There is a company called Scoche (spelling) that sells a good line of wiring adapters and mounts for aftermarket radios so you can install them yourself. You can get a good radio (some with the new HD radio) and CD player for under $150. The mount kits run about $15 and the wiring harness runs about $10....all abailable at Best Buy or Wal Mart

Remove radio


removing the radio is simple. 2 bolts and a couple screws. then ya can just pull it out. but getting an aftermarket radio to work, is another story. i just tried installing one for a family member, and i hooked up all the aftermarket wiring kit wires correctly, checked fuses and everything. cant even get it to turn on. :-(
good luck chum.
