Sorry, you can't. led's are not light bulbs, ergo they have no filiment. They seldom fail. You can test the device, by unsoldering one end so it is isolated from circuitry, Then use a volt-ohm-meter on a high scale for ohms. place the leads from the meter (one lead on one end, the other on the other led lead. It is just a diode and should conduct in one direction only. if you get an open on the first try, reverse the meter leads and if the ratio is > 20 to 1 after reversing the leads, the LED is good, and you either have a voltage bias problem or a bad soldier connection. So the diode only conducts in one direction, if it doesn't conduct in either direction the led has an open junction, and is bad. If it conducts in both directions it has shorted junction. remember to keep your fingers off the leads because you are a high resistance impedance, and will give a false reading. Leds have a MTTF of about 20 years depending on the on/off time and current drawn when biased on. sorry MTTF= mean time to failure.

How do you fix LED light for station selector and clock in 1990 Ford F-150 pickup Radio wtape player works perfect except the small window for station and clock display does not light up?

It's probably a bad connection. If you feel up to it, you could take the radio apart and re-seat the ribon cable that feeds the display assembly. Remove the radio, take the top plate off and you can replace the bulb for the display.

the light in the display is probly burnt out. if you take the radio out you can take the top off it and the light is right at the display. you can take it out with a screwdriver. sometimes the light is just loose and will still work but if you need a new one you can get it at www.corvetteradios.com. hope that will help you out.


How do you fix 2005 mercury montego radio display?

If the display is not on when you turn the ignition on. First you check the fuses. radio memory is usually run with the courtesy light fuse. The main radio fuse is marked radio. Second you pull the radio out and test the power leads to the radio. If you have no power then there may be a short in a wire. If there is power on the power leads then the radio must be replaced.

Your LED clocklight display on your 1997 van went out how do you fix that?

don't be shy, take your radio apart. pull bulb out and rewire a new bulb in. You will have to get the smallest bulb you can find at a automotive store. The bulb has 2 wires coming from the bottom which you will have to feed into socket of the one in your radio. Did this to my own and works great!


Pontiac sunfire 98 radio and kilometer light problem you can only see your electronic kilometer with a flash light same with your radio clock you've check all the fuses and they are all good?

The backlight on the radio i have seen as a common problem in all cars with same radio including firebird anniversaty edition (seems like it should be made better) went out in mine too i just put in an aftermarket stereo FOSKOrider@aol.com ==Danged radios!== I replaced my Delco radio for the exact same reason. The time/station display died. Also, the plastic coating on the control buttons was damaged. I found a replacement radio on Ebay for about $35 US. The Kilometer light problem is probably not related to the radio. I'd suspect a bad bulb, unless it's an LED type display. If so, it could become more complicated to fix.

Your Clock Radio Dial in 1997 Pontiac Sunfire wont stay on have to hit it then it comes on how to you fix this problem?

Hitting it is not going to fix it - that will only make matters worse. A possible problem is a loose connection inside the radio or in the dash. Remove the radio and check all its wiring and the connecting wiring that leads to the radio. You'll need an Ohmeter.
